I have lived in Michigan since 1992 and I have yet to see an individual OC'in. My job has taken me to many cities in MI to work for extended periods of time and I just dont see it. I see postings for OC rallies at parks ect but have never attended one. I remember working in Charleston, WV on a project and saw a couple guys come into taco bell with pistols on their hips but thats it in my 47 years of existence. Anyone else notice this also? I have had my CPL for just over 13 years so have no interest in doing it myself, but I do like the fact that is legal no (permit required) and an option.
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
I live in the Upper Peninsula, however I do not see OC anywhere. In Marquette county 1 in 9 people have their CPL, so you may not see it but you can be assured that they are around.
I do see people with long guns (rifles) in their trucks all the time.
OC in Michigan is alive and well. I live in Monroe Co. SE Michigan and open carry. Not so much in the winter. Never had a problem with it. No cops stopping me, no one running out of the store or restaurant in fear for their lives, kids screaming. Compliments are what I have received. Couple gun enthusiast notice, or clerks notice and start checking it out and we talk about what each other carry. No Big Deal.
I've seen a few over the years , but I live in a smaller city up north.

My son worked in a home depot and he said he has seen several caring in the store. One manager wanted to call the police on a fellow and my son had to explain that it was legal to carry open. I have seen only one in my travels through my state.
1911 when a follow up shot just isn't an option
My nephew OC's every now and then.
When he was younger, he was "interviewed" by an LEO, and wised up the well meaning officer, with one of the LEO packets from the above website.
Policeman didn't even know(so he says) that its legal in Mi.

I saw a guy open carry at a local gas station here in SW Lower Michigan.
It was good to see.
I don't enjoy attention so I keep mine concealed...though I'd open carry up north during hunting season.

I cannot understand how accurately describing someones position on a topic can be insulting. If the OP's point is that misrepresenting someone's position and just calling them names isn't good then agreed. Calling fascists by that title isn't wrong and conveys a whole lot of information without having to restate the definitive information.
However, we've become a society that too often doesn't want to offend anyone- including the worst amongst us.
I OC in west Michigan allot and have never had a issue. That being said in other then events or protest I hasn't seen anyone else do the same around town.

I saw a guy OCing what looked like a 1911 in an Ann Arbor Meijer once.
