Oc'ed at Sara's pizza in Hudsonville No issues. My order was not ready ( they dropped it and had to make a new one) so I stood around for 20 minutes or so. Busy place, lot of people coming and going. One lady about my age kept a close eye on me but nothing else.

I worked at Sara's in Grandville before they moved, wonder if it is the same owners. This was 25 years ago or so however.

Walked over to Village Bike & Fitness in Kentwood, MI to pick up my bike.  A different employee was helping me than when I dropped my bike off on Saturday.  He talked just fine as soon as I walked in.  He got nervous as his speech began stuttering while he was cashiering me out. Walked back home.

OC'd while shopping with Anne (one of my partners) at Meijers.

A man behind us in line asked if I get bothered much while OCing (no). I told him of our website and he proceeded to tell me he was a CPL holder. It was a friendly encounter.

OC'd last night at Applebee's in Monroe. No issues. One older lady smiled at me, nodded and said"nice". Older gentleman sitting near me just smiled and nodded. Went to Walmart after that, no issues there either, just as it should be.

OC'ed for my first time this evening! I was very paranoid about doing it but it turned out great. OC'ed at Renegade River in Spring Lake with the help of Ryan Adams. We went to inquire about holding a seminar. Keep a look out for details! Overall a great experience and looking forward to doing it again soon.

OCd at the GR city commission meeting last night with Tom.   I overcame my severe dislike for speaking in front of large groups long enough to get my point across during public comment and then sat down to listen to others.   There were no issues.   I came out with a realization that the city sure has it's nose in a lot of places that it doesn't belong. I also found out there was a group collecting signatures for a ballot proposal that would place term limits on elected city officials.   I made sure I signed before I left. :D

As far as I know there are no term limits in place for elected city officials in Grand Rapids.

on all my out of state experiences...ive been to every state east of the rockies pretty much that recognizes michigan CPL, open carried in those that allow so without issue, usually just at truck stops, though.

only problem ive had at all was making sure i was not printing at all in texas, south carolina and florida, but that is a separate issue.

in michigan ive been anywhere and everywhere, without issue....most recently i went to burger king and autozone in Holt today and plan to do some more errands later.

OC'd at New Country China Buffet in Jackson yesterday.  Good food, with some good people.  Had no issue, except for the waitress not filling my water fast enough.  Other than that.. good experience

Was at a gas station in Dearborn heights last night OCing, clerk asked if I was open carrying or if I had a permit, had to explain that one...but he wasn't anti at all, I couldn't help but notice the obvious appendix area printing on him.

Also open carried at Mongolian BBQ in Ann harbor without issue.

Open carried while disc golfing at old farm park in Kentwood Michigan on Saturday. Group of high school or young college aged kids in front of me. One kid asked me if I was carrying a 9mm. Then asked me it was a m&p. Told him it was a Beretta. The group behind me was two college aged guys. Always keeping 10 feet or more away from me while I was at the tee. No qualms either way.

On Sunday, went out to Felt Mansion and a city park right next door to it for more disc golf, which is sandwiched between Saugatuk state park and Felt Mansion.  Nothing much to report.  Windy day but did better for the second time out for the season.
