Michigan Hillbilly

An old version of the websters dictionary defined "hillbilly" as a northern michigan farmer. I live on whats left of the family farm. I live about 30 miles south of the Macinaw Bridge. I am retired Navy (74-94) and laid-off IT guy. Michigan also passed Concealed carry a few years ago, I hope to apply soon. Not that I feel much need (we don't have much crime here) but to support the right. A right that is not used is easer to take away. I have some guns, my fave is my Sig p232. I am moderately experienced with guns and ammo, so I can be expected to say something stupid or simply be incorrect sometimes. I look forward to picking some brains!

Concealed Carry Passed

I have a sister and her husband that lives in Caro, Michigan, and I've heard them mention the term, "Michigan Hillbilly."
In my state, Kansas, Concealed Carry was passed last year over the veto of our gun-control governor, Kathleen Sebelius. I have a High-Standard Double-Nine Revolver, western looking, 22 cal. I am applying for the required training so I can obtain a concealed carry license, primarily so I can carry the piece in my automobile. Later, I'm interested in purchasing a small semi-automatic for personal protection. I'm going to resume practice shooting at the "Bullet Hole," an indoor shooting range close to my neighborhood. I took first place in boot camp on the M-1 rifle range in Camp Elliot in the San Diego region in 1951. Has anyone reading this been there. It was rattlesnake country in 1951. I originally stumbled on this site accidently and am now glad I did.

The gun that won the west wasn't registered
