Hello. Just wanted to stop in and say hi. I'm a returning member, was a member years ago, decided to come back. I'm in the Flint area and have been OC as a primary method of carry for years now. It's incredibly rare that I conceal.  So, with that, hello, and hope everyone is having a great day!

Welcome back. Your feedback on how things have changed would be appreciated.

I was a member first in June 2010. I had a relatively pleasant experience. That's why I tried to renew my membership.  Before my previous membership expired, I emailed several times with questions I had about membership and other things. I never received any sort of response.  I checked my email, my junk mail folder, I sent more than a couple follow up emails.  It was frustrating to say the least. I have issues associating with organizations that can't respond to paying members.

I recently received an email from Dan Griffin asking me to renew my membership, I responded, then Tom responded. I was impressed by the professionalism and courteous nature. He was very helpful.  It prompted me to come back and check things out.  Seems like a more professional and directed group. Feels like there are more clear definitions to the organization's goal and intents.

Obviously, this is a 1000 foot overview. Lol.

I've always open carried and tried to educate and re-normalize open carry, even when not a member. Lol. The resources here are vast and very much appreciated.

Yes, they really are.  Unfortunately, maybe, most MOC traffic occurs on facebook these days.

MOC group page where most user traffic is.  Very active:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/MichiganOpenCarry/

MOC home page:

Did you get the April newsletter notification?

goofymonkey33 (Jeff), I added you to the members group here in the forum. You should have access to the members only area now where we post our newsletters, among other things.

Unfortunately, as of current, I have not a stalker-book. Lol

Thanks for adding me.
