Like the title says I'm new around here and new to open carry.  I am a cpl holder but have not OC'd yet.  I'm just soaking up all the information I can before my first encounter with a LEO.  Just wanted to start a new thread and say hi...

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such goverment, and to provide new gaurds for their future security. United States Constitution.

Bigdawg: welcome. How about you start your own welcome thread and tell us about yourself?

Welcome Don, I have been OCing for 13-14 yrs (not always but mostly).
I have never had interaction as far as carry goes and you may be waiting for a long time to have an encounter with LEO. Don't let that be the reason you do not carry openly.  I know it does happen but I think you would be surprised at how little it actually does. Now I guess in Flint you may have the opportunity to be approached/asked more than I in the Kalamazoo area.

Start in comfortable locations and go further as your comfort level grows.
