I was interested in open carry laws in MI... I found an awsome thread that explained alot using search. However I am unclear as to what the laws are regarding open carry. Are you telling me that i had to take a 95 dollar Protection in the home class so i could get my CCW. When all i really had to do is open carry? There is no permit required to strap my 23 on and go outside? I ask because i think it would be nice to have my 23 while hunting. But I am 3 months from graduating and I am going into Law Enforcement. Though im leaving the state because there are no jobs i still would hate to have problems 3 months before i look for jobs! Thanx in advance!
