Meijer was in MI waaaay before there was a Wal-Mart in the area, so technically Wal-Mart is Meijers direct competitor, Ann Arbor....well there's not much to say about Ann Arbor other than you should have moved further away either north, south, or west to get away form the UofM crowd.

    the wifey is finishing up her studies at UofM...so it's hard to get away from AA. We'll be moving back out west to Denver in June though, hopefully they'll be more understanding!

    PCON, you told her a lot more information about yourself that was none of her business then I would have.

    Welcome to Michigan, congrats on the new marriage, and remember Ann arbor is home of the annual "Hash Bash" for a reason: a bunch of tree hugging hippy liberals running around not usually the gun friendly type.
    By the way don't ever forget your aniversary with a date like that she will NEVER let you live it down (I speak from experience my aniversary is Christmas eve and my better half reminds me repeatedly of the year I was too busy getting toys gathered and assembled to remember our special day)

    As far as CO is concerned, Denver is pretty liberal as I understand it.

    Sounds like you did just fine to me. It sounded like she asked those questions out of curiousity and in a respectful way,and you responded in kind. You taught her a few things about guns,gun safety and CCW. Maybe you even gave her something to thing about. And best of all you gave her a positive impression of gun owners!

    actually, since I already have a CCW from a state that MI reciprocates with, they waived the 6 month restriction and issued me a temp. permit. I'm all good to carry here. It was a pleasant surprise when I spoke with the MSP!!

    Also, MI is a state that requires you to be a resident of the state issuing your permit.
    Think about that.

    I grew up in Michigan, and for the last 20 years have considered it a good state to be from.

    Looking forward to welcoming you to CO.
    Try to stay out of Denver proper. If you can stand the commute, there's plenty of room out here in Elbert County.
    It’s so much easier now days, to "Love and honor" my wife, when she is armed, and shoots a better group than I do. (Till death do us part, eh?)

    thanks! I think we're looking at either Longmont or Westminster (that's where I'll be living). Any info you can PM me on either place would be appreciated!!

    PCON, Welcome to Michigan. I think I warned you about A-Squared (that bastion of liberalism quote sounds familiar ). But not to worry, much of the State is VASTLY different. Also very beautiful (when it's not frigid and white, unless you are into that sort of thing, in which case it's got that going for it too!).

    Glad (and surprised!) to hear they'll issue temp. permits for those moving in from another State (reciprocity or not, Michigan honors ALL other State's permits, as long as the holder is a resident of that issueing State).

    With the exception of our current recession (worst employment rate in 50 States), which has been going on for about 3 years (the rest of the country is now where we were back then, and we've sunk even lower), the State does have a lot going for it. And really, so does Ann Arbor (lots of cultural events and concerts, U of M Hospital, one of the best in the Nation, and University of Michigan, a fine school, though they do cultivate that liberal mentality).

    All in all, a lot of good here, and for your short stay, should be a very positive one. Enjoy your stay, and if you've got any money, spend it!
    Regards, T Bone.

    Yeah, A2 is a liberal elitest bastion of anti-freedom.

    OTOH:
    The picnic that the members of OCDO.org held there last fall went off without a hitch. Imagine that! People openly carrying guns in the liberal stronghold of A2, and the local officers look like their having a good time hanging out with the folks.

    PS.

    It was good of you to help re-educate the lady, and welcome to MI.

    I recon they figured I wasn't gonna load any of the new stuff on the way out to the parking lot! LOL
    That must be a local store policy. I recently bought some .40 S&W at a local Wal-Mart and wasn't escorted.

    I grew up in northern MI and loved it...graduated from MSU and then lived in Ann Arbor for five years...there I not only learned about liberals, but also of the frustration of trying to reason with them.

    Moved to MN, home of more liberals, but there's nothing quite like Ann Arbor. There are, however, some great restaurants, bars and food stores there. I fondly remember Merchant of Vino up on Plymouth Road.

    Carry all the time, and stayed heavily armed when travelling into Ypsilanti.

    Good luck.
