Q. Can i have a drop leg holsters or does it need to be on my hip

A. Yes, you may use a drop leg holster.  Any type of exposed holstered carry--hip, drop leg, shoulder--is classified as open (not concealed) and is legal (provided you don't carry in certain areas we call PFZ (pistol free zones) without holding a CPL.  If you have a CPL, you may also conceal or partially conceal without worry.

Q. can my gun be cocked and loaded when I open carry

A. Yes.

Q. the police question me what section of the Michigan constitution do I refer to when i tell them its my right

A. The Michigan Constitution states:
ยง 6 Bearing of arms.
Sec. 6. Every person has a right to keep and bear arms for the defense of himself and the state.

As far as Michigan Compiled Laws (MCL) there is no law that makes open carry illegal.  Thus by default it is legal.
