Keep up the good work ; )
This is a discussion on OK that was interesting...... within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; OK one of my (too many) hobbies is Pyrotechnics, and my Pro Pyro group (The HPA) had a club shoot Saturday. This shoot is attended ...
OK one of my (too many) hobbies is Pyrotechnics, and my Pro Pyro group (The HPA) had a club shoot Saturday. This shoot is attended by people from multiple states, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and of coarse Mi which is were the shoot was.... It was hot, nice area, good people, lots of new things to learn, and I went from CC to OC abandoning my over shirt to keep cool...
N had heaps of questions thrown at me by multiple people, mostly from Illinois residents, some women some kids.... "Why do you have a gun... and are you a police officer?" was no 1 on the most asked list....
So not wanting to be defensive I dropped into the "to keep family and people like you safe... How the elderly and women basically have a huge bulls eye on them, are primary targets for perverts ..... and the every day dangers that are out there.... add story of time someone tried to rob me and the HK changed their mind real fast.... how every woman should get training and carry a gun, how I made sure the wife n daughters went for (arranged classes, paid for, bought them guns) their CCW before I had mine.... how the MI CCW gives the wearer specific rights to OC is some forbidden areas" basically the exchange was very positive and they were receptive, what I would refer to as a political win win for our side.....

That was interesting. I can imagine their faces when they saw your firearm

Guns and explosives, sweet! Sounds like you did well.
I prefer to live dangerously free than safely caged!

Its always a nice time when people actually will listen to what you have to say even if they may disagree with you. Way to be a level headed representation of the OC culture!
Protection is a responsibility not just a right.
Way to go. Sounds like you had a great attitude and took advantage of a situation where you could educate a number of folks on CC and OC. Well done.
It's been years since I've been able to blow anything up. I've been thinking about buying a bunch of non-fat dairy creamer and blowing it to kingdom come...like they did in Mythbusters. I don't think my wife is going to clear that though since I nearly set the garage on fire today.
Tell them you use the gun to ignite the fireworks from 50 yards.
Sounds like you represented your fellow OC'ers well!
Thank you for that.
What made me chuckle a bit was, you were at an "explosives fun day" and some of the people you mentioned were looking at you in a strange light just because you were OC'ing.
Just the irony of it I guess. lol
Anyhow, keep up the good work. Hopefully in a few years us OC'ers are going to be a mainstream thing throughout most of this nation.
