My first OC experience- got to teach a gun lawyer a little bit!
About 2 weeks ago, a rifle I purchased on GunBroker arrived at an FFL in a neighboring city, so I figured it would be an appropriate time to OC for the first time (besides at the firing range). The FFL/gun lawyer I went through was located in Southfield, MI..considered the "Detroit" of Oakland County, so I figured why not.
Not a single word was mentioned about my firearm until he saw my ID- I'm under 21. First of all, he thought I had to be 21 for a long gun transfer- I told him to look it up!
After that he pointed at my hip and said, "but you can carry that thing?" I smiled and informed him that you did not need a permit to OC; it's completely legal as long as the gun's in your name. He also didn't know that in our state, handguns may be purchased in a private sale by anyone 18 or older.
I found it a little odd that a gun lawyer didn't know these (seemingly) fundamental laws, but I was glad I was able to pass on some of the knowledge I've learned over the years.
In all, my first OC experience went largely uneventful, and I'm grateful for that. I look forward to trying it out more in the future.
