If you want froo-froo stuff, maybe the waitress will put some whipped cream in your cocoa.
My mom is from Detroit, although she moved here to SE Wisconsin before I was born. I still have family there so I end up around the Detroit area once a year or so and it seems pretty nice. Not a whole lot different than Wisconsin though.
Where the heck did your hear that? It's not true. I am a fan of ALL pop....or soda to you southerners.
Good stuff, but nowhere near as good as Dr. Pepper. Pretty much everyone else I know hates the stuff.
Yeah, forgot to mention the weather. Went from 80 to snowing and below zero in three days this past week. Hope you don't mind.
Oh, and when you get here, don't forget to take a trip to the bridge. Much better than that golden piece of crap you Cali's got.
In other good news, my bayonet-lugged, flash-hidden, pistol gripped AR kit is due to arrive today, and I picked up three 30 rounders for $30 for it. Betcha you can't do that over there
You can get lattes in the UP, especially if you are in one of the "big cities" (Marquette, Houghton, Escanaba, etc.).
That is one issue I would avoid.
The weatherman is right only 1 day of the week.
A Coke & a pasty=good eats.
Don't cross the Mighty Mac on a motorcycle if their is even a hint of a breeze.(lost a Yugo over the side some years ago. )
Whitetails can be as big as Colorado elk.
The black bears like to be petted.
Pistol permits are a PITA.
If you like to swim either plan on a pool or on inland lake.The big lakes are only warm enough for an adult to swim for a month or so in summer.And a stiff breeze can change that in a hurry.
Do ya like to fish?Ya better.
Oh & one more thing.There's nothing like the first time you drive your car out on a frozen lake.
I forgot abou that one! LOL
you might be interested in. The moose sportsmens club is always happy
to get new members that like to shoot. Trap is our biggest draw but we
do ccw clases and have pistol & rifle ranges. Its a great club. Let me know
How on earth can anyone afford to live there? What with Cabela's just down the road I would be broker than I already am.
And who said the weather is bad? Remember, if you don't like the weather just stick around 5 minutes.
I was wrong about the Lattes. The Christian-oriented coffee shop down town sells them. Darned progress anyway. Next thing you know, every telephone party-line in the county will be gone.
Heh..who am I kidding..it'll take a while for the party-lines to go away.
The water is warm-just watch out for the water moccasins.
The Democrats here pretty much know to stay away from our shootin irons-except for Austin. AKA Moscow on the Brazo's.
No really big deer here, but we got a mess of em, and in the county I hunt, you can take up to 4.
No Vernors or pastys
We do have barbeque!
Best of all, we don't have Det-RIOT!
Sure do miss the lakes, tho.
Hey, I live in WI. I was just asking silly questions for the heck of it.
On the subject of the AR, I can do all that and own non C&R NFA stuff in Wisconsin.
Of course you guys have CCW and we don't. But.. what the hell is up with dirt roads. My aunt and uncle live in a pretty upscale housing division (Somewhere in the suburban areas surrounding Detroit) and the main road leading to it is unpaved. I guess they wet it and compact it every few months with a steam roller. It's not the only dirt road i've seen in the area either, heh.
"Aw, Sheer Stress......should-a-would-a-could-a moved to Texas! We don' need no steenking safey checks on pistols here!"
In the words of Principal Seymour Skinner,"Wanna-shanna-gonna". I tried but the school wouldn't bite. Learned my lesson and slipped a couple of crispy Benjamins in the Michigan app (just kidding!)
I had a fun experience at the gun store today. A guy was picking up his registered Bushmaster carbine (the real deal, in other words) after getting some work done and I got to ask him:"Hey, can I take a look at that thing--'cause I'm thinking of getting one when I move out of state." Heh-heh-heh.
On to NFA firearms. You can own come NFA firearms via a ClassIII license. You have to submit a application plus a $300.00 fee which is not refundable if you're denied after 6 months of waiting. It also cost $300.00 a year to keep the license plus you have to allow LE into your home anytime they desire to see if the weapons are secured.
I suggest moving to Indiana
First things first. Remember, I'm moving from a state where I can't legally buy an out of state S&W Model 15 through auctionarms, to say nothing of all those nice NFA goodies.
" The moose sportsmens club is always happy to get new members that like to shoot. Trap is our biggest draw but we do ccw clases and have pistol & rifle ranges. Its a great club. Let me know if interested.'''
Sounds like a nice place. What kind of range have they got and what fees do they charge?
Yah, I was one of the fortunate to actually go to the top of the south tower of Big Mac. (Had a cousin in the Bridge Authority) Watched a good portion of the annual Bridge Walk on Labor Day from a vantage point seen by very few, after following George Bush Sr. across. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
It's the 1st paragraph of my post you need to read carefully. My 2nd paragraph was just in case you were going to ask, you would already have your answer.
On to the Wisconsin guy - who needs paved roads? You can't tell if they're paved for half the year, anyways. When the snow falls, there cease to be paved roads And while the NFA thingy sucks, I do think many more would enjoy the CCW than the MG's.
Stevie - missed a chance to go up. Was at a summer engineering camp at Lake State, and we toured the bridge. Played 'I'm thinking of a number between one and a thousand' for the two to go. I was the third closest :banghead: Did get to go down though the concrete legs, though, which is still cool.
Is that like an add on or something, to the C&R to allow you to own NFA goodies? When the local MG guy was explaining it, he didn't mention that part. Sucks if it is.
You are basing this assumption on what data? 1st degree is:
(a) Murder perpetrated by means of poison, lying in wait, or any other willful, deliberate, and premeditated killing.
(b) Murder committed in the perpetration of, or attempt to perpetrate, arson, criminal sexual conduct in the first, second, or third degree, child abuse in the first degree, a major controlled substance offense, robbery, carjacking, breaking and entering of a dwelling, home invasion in the first or second degree, larceny of any kind, extortion, kidnapping, or vulnerable adult abuse in the first and second degree under section 145n.
As I am currently doing research on this subject, please direct me to which of the MCL's covers this.
I have not heard of a case in Michigan where a good shoot was prosecuted.
This is not true. While there is a duty to retreat while not in the home, it only exists if you can safely do so. Plus, there are many prosecutors that wouldn't bother trying to prosecute someone in a defensive shooting unless it was very bad. There was a case here about 5 or 6 years ago where someone chased the BG for several blocks before killing him. The prosecutor, citing the fleeing felon rule, did not charge the guy.
