Out of State Carry, a Diary (LONG)
I am licensed in OK.
I flew to MI for Thanksgiving and my Brothers wedding.
Please feel free to comment on whatever. I am in MI for 2 weeks and will give a running diolog of my experiences.
Please ingor spelling and grammer, this is a diary, not an english contest!! LOL :smile:
DAY 1 17NOV07 @ 0200hrs: I woke up groogy, thankfuly I hit the sack at 2100hrs. the night prior and the kid slept the night through. I roll out of bed, slap on my blue jeans and my carry rig. I do the morning gig and just pruior to hitting the road I disarm and pack my weapon according to TSA SOP.
I arrive at the OKC air port and check my weapons without a proplem. The agent didnt even inspect the weapons to see if they are unloaded, she just took my word!
0600hrs. the plane leaves OKC and at about 0900hrs it lands in Detroit. I go to my parents house and re-holster my weapon and spare ammo.
1800hrs. the bacholer party kicks off. My uncle comes and gives me a hug. He spots the weapon with his hand during the hug and calls me to the other room. I show him both of the weapons I brought and we have a lively discussion about handguns. He is a huge gun nut and was totally cool about me me carrying, heck he is the one who taught me how to shoot when I was a tike.
We both decide that it is time to start drinking and I disarm and lock up my weapons. I go bar hopping unarmed. :bier:
One of the party members gets into a confrontation with a bouncer. I verbaly end the confrontation and the bouncer is cool. I latter thank the bouncer for his professionalism.
One of the drunken party members chanllengers me to a fight, again I verbally avoid fighting with my witty charm. :congrats:
18NOV07 @ 1230hrs. I wake up. Zero hangover, as I stayed sober the nght berfore, although I did have a mild beer buz. I rearm, plus extra ammo.
After lunch time my old man starts talking about weapons. I unholster and unload my weapon for his inspection. He is cool with weapons but surpised that I carry a .45 and comments that it is to large to carry. We have a friendly disagreement and I reload and reholster my weapon.
Later that night I lockup my weapon and have a few beers.
19NOV07 @ 0930. I wake up, rearm, and hang with the family. My father and I stop at the tuxedo place for a last fitting. I disarm in the truck just prior to heading in the building, I dont want the guy measuring me to freaking out that i am wearing a sidearm. He spots the holster during the measuring and becomes very silent during the reat of our incounter. We go home and I rearm.
