    The man Caught shooting at MN vehicles in SIren Last Year was my sisters Ex. I will be happy when WI finally “Allows” us the right to defend ourselves. Although I know it will be a HOT day in Wisconsin to if it is ever allowed in Illinois.

  • Madhzrx

    so any info on ccw in WI this year, have not heard much on it latley.

  • Gray Ryder

    Why is it that Illinois can be so correct in the the legislator’s denial of CCW and/or open carry for the residents thereof ?  And the other 48 state so incorrect  in the enactment of legislation to allow their citizens their Constitutional rights to CCW and/or open carry for the purpose of prsonal defense and the safety of their loved one ??  Illinois will not ever have a CCW as long as Cook County and the city of Chicago are part of the State Illinois.  If Chicago is so safe, that CCW carry, according to Daliey and his cesspool corrupt politlical puppets, is not necessary. Why is he, Daliey, the soon to be late  Mayor, asking for a 24/7 continued “ARMED” police protection, at the tax payer’s expense ???????????????????? Surely not one of his cesspool political puppets will openly  deny his request. The citizens of Illinois and/or residents of Chicago should come to the front in mass proptest as to his request. Why is his personal safety and preservation of life  any more priviledged than any one single citizen in the State of Illinois, Cook County and/or   Chicago ??????

  • Gray Ryder

    Would it not be a heaven sent pray for Cook County, along with Chicago,  to be annexed into Wisconsin  ? So goes the history of Illinois. As Chicago goes, so does Illinois.  Just exactly what is it that Cook County and/or Chicago’s cesspool political puppets are  so affraid of ?  Why is it that Chicago, having a ban on hand guns, has and continues to have more guns in the hands of gang bangers and any other undesirable on the streets than any location in Illinois  ?  The gun ban in Chicago is not and never has worked. The gun ban in Chicago is a much larger political joke than the Illinois FOID card system. However, the cesspool political puppets are totally unable realize,  that their failure to abide by their Oath of Office , in the eyes of the nation and the residents of Illinois, strongly supports the fact of corruption of politics in Illinois.
    How in heavens name can they continue to hold their heads up and profess to be protector and defender of the Constitution ? Then again, they wonder why the majority of situations of political  corruption always, to some degree, refers to and/or uses as an example what was a similar to a situation, that was and/or is some thing that occurred in Chicago Illinois   

    ” A government that fears an armed populace is a government to be feared. The most important reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a means of last resort, is to protect themselves from tyranny in government “.   Thomas Jefferson 

    • Facistdemocrat

      Much like Chicago, a great man banned all firearms for his country on April 15th 1935 a few years before ceasing power.  Just llok at the many years of peace Hitler brought to europe after passing democrat like gun control laws.  They appear to have a lot in common.

      • Gray Ryder

        Your are so right. I believe the policy of banning firearms was a brain storm of one of Hitler,s  goon squad members. . His presentation to Hitler was,” that once we  control the personal firearms of the population, then we will no problem controlling the people.”
        Also, look back to Japan’s concsideration of evading the United States. It was not the military power that they feared. It was, that they knew, so very well, that every citizen of the United States was armed and that their idea of an invasion would only come to serious defeat at the hands of the American citizens.

        “” A government that fears an armed populace is a government to be feared. The most important reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a means of last resort, to protect themselves from tranny in government”;  Thomas Jefferson.

        Happy Trails,

  • Doug

    Need to update your website — Wisconsin does allow concealed carry, making IL the ONLY state not allowing concealed carry.

    • Anonymous

      No, the Governor hasn’t signed it yet.

  • ARMED CHICAGOAN

    Since WI now has a CCW law, WHAT ARE THE RECIPROCITY AGREEMENTS and will Wisconsin HONOR other States permits?
    Information is CRITICAL here. Bits and pieces just doesnt cut it. Sorta like bringing a pocket knife to a gun fight

    • Anonymous

      Well that’s all we have. The Department of Justice is going to provide more details before November 1.

  • ARMED CHICAGOAN

    Maybe you should update the page now and in the narrative section put “pending receipt of Info from the Wisconsin Department of Justice” THAT way your page has the VISUAL IMPACT and shows ILLINOIS as the lone communist state in this Great Country. Just something to consider.

    • ARMED CHICAGOAN

      Waiting until November to update the map is not a good idea. You need to show that WI  IS a CCW State. By doing this minor update(see above) you will continue your strong pro ccw stance and further focus on the fact that Illinois and COMRADE PAT QUINN is the LAST communist state. 
      Way to go Gov Walker! You da man!  

      • Anonymous

        Map has been updated as Shall Issue to Residents for now until we get more info. Not sure if they are going to issue to non-residents yet.

        • ARMED CHICAGOAN

          According to the DOJ,they are compiling a list of states that complete NCIS background checks and require some sort of training. Once they determine those states,they will enter into reciprocity with them.

      • Groveb

        love the concealed law…but would NEVER call Walker “da man.” Just sayin…

           He has more balls than any Liberal Governor in the last eight and a half years,…Just sayin.

    If you want to defend yourself, learn martial arts. Don’t be a coward with a gun.

    • Cooter

      Have fun trying to karate chop a firearm out of a criminal’s hands when he’s mugging you. Me, I’ll reach for my Glock and equal the playing field. I would rather live another day and have to put up with ignorant rhetoric from gun grabbers, than to die in the streets because I brought kung-fu to a gun fight. LOL.

    • Gray Ryder

      Guest,

      You have been watching to much TV and reading to many comic books. An individual being armed is not a coward. Their intention is to be a surviver and not a victim as a result of ahair brain thoughts of being a  praised statistic. Also, be as it may. It is far better to be a live coward, as your fickled thoughts may be, than a dead foolish want-a-be hero.

      Gray Ryder

    • ARMED CHICAGOAN

      HEY I know KUNG FU and 12 other Japanese words.
      I also speak Spanish..

      SI HABLA SMITH AND WESSON?

      Get a life Jackie Chan.

    • Doc

      “If you want to defend yourself, learn martial arts. Don’t be a coward with a gun”. This was about as stupid a thing to say as I have evre heard!

      • Doc

        That is ever heard typo

    • JOE MATAFOME

      People who carry and own guns are not  COWARDS. They just refuse to be good lil sheep and die without a fight. I’m willing to bet that you can’t karate chop or side step a bullet.

  • Gunz

    In the event that you do not agree with my right to carry a firearm, if your life is ever in danger and I am there, I will gladly refrain from defending you. BTW, I have been in martial arts for many years, and I know that there not a lot of self defense you can think of when you are staring down the barrel of a gun.

  • Gray Ryder

    Any martial arts individual that has thoughts of going up against an armed individual has been eating to much fish eyes and sour rice. One has to be in arms or leg reach to respond and/or have an attacker coming at you in a rush. The only rush that a kung-fu-fool is going to experience is the rush of blood from his body as to where the bullet went through their chop-chop defense. Martial art training is a wonderful lawful defense when the situation requires such defense. However. I have yet to hear of an individual catching fired bullet with his teeth or deflecting it’s direction in the self defense move when being  fired at.

    Such grandstanding dumb-dumb actions are only projected by Steven Segal and the late Kung-fu “Chang” pervert character. It is best for those who have a tought of using martial arts defense in a gun encounter, to spend their life, what they may have  left, watching Segal, Jackie Chan and the Texas Ranger actor on TV; and stop day dreaming of becoming a news broadcasted statistic. Without a doubt you will lose. A gang banger will pop a cap in your head just to see you go down and suffer in your demise.

    • Djacob2

      Yeah — remember the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark when Indiana was facing a huge kung fulish warrior? We all remember how that worked out!

  • ARMED CHICAGOAN

    Brother I feel ya. Pat Quinn is a communist plain and simple. Short of carrying outside of Chicago(on private land of course) thats a great idea. 
    I keep a can of MIL SHU OC spray in my pocket along with a Smith and Wesson lock blade. I am proficient in the use of both items. 
    Until this goof ball Quinn is ousted from Office (pending suits) I suppose THIS is the only Smith and Wesson product I will be carrying…(wink wink) Where are your permits from? Mine are from VA AZ PA and NH. We should hit the range some time.

    • ARMED CHICAGOAN

      ooops typo lets make that   2 Million SHU OC spray.
      Light the bad guys face on FIRE and walk away.  

    • Gray Ryder

      PA, NH & Florida.   Why VA and AZ ? I did  not know that VA and AZ issued Non-Resident CCW. Does not Chicago have an ordinance  on the length of the blade of pocket or belt holster carry knife ? All pocket sprays that I know of has a small leather or a imitation leather holster , which takes two hands to  open to make ready. In my opinion  when push comes to  shove I want a one hand pull, activation discharge. My Pepper Spray/Mace holster carry canister gun has  level of heat just under that of which is carried by law enforcement. A daughter, of a family friend, had the need to use her pocket pepper spay canister and came near to spraying  it in her own face. I would worry more about Popa Madigan more than Quinn. In my opinion Quinn a Brown Shirt soldier from Dailey’s  old school camp in an  over flow of cesspool Chicago political puppets. Considering that Dailey is out of office does lessen his control on Chicago politics. Then again, Quinn may  have intentions, just yet, of retiring and just might bend to the pending litigation if and when the courts rule in favor of the Illinois citizen’s rights.What I can not fathom is who in the h— keeps voting those corrupt politicians into office  ? The Illinois State Rifle Association, which I am a member of, has several suits pending relative to violation of  Illinois citizen,s Second Amendment Rights.

      On range experience sounds good, However, there are about 400 miles, 5.5 hours driving time between Chicago and where I am in Southern Illinois.  I do belong to a local gun club, which gives me range privileges. However, since I have been retired. I am kept busy with to many  honey do jobs to plan more than a couple of hours a the range.

      Keep your powder dry and Happy Trails,

      Gray Ryder

      • ARMED IN CHICAGO

        Well at the time I got the permits, AZ and VA provided me with the most coverage. Now,it looks like AZ (non resident) will be the one I renew due to the extensive coverage and economical price.
          Id be happy to entertain more than a few hours at the range. I have S/W 4006(former duty weapon) S/W MP 40,beretta 96)original duty weapon and a sig P250(home defense and paper weight haha)
        Sorry to hear about the “honey do this ” list but we all have those.
         Does your gun club take application and non use support? 
        Insofar as who votes the goofs into office.Easy one. Those that have a constant drip of the Kool Aid. Quinn NARROWLY won this time due to Chicago and Crook County. It pains me that this state wont allow CCW and further pains me that the crime rate is thru the roof. 
        I hope and pray that the suits get CCW for this state. The ace in our sleeves here is the overwhelming majority rule act.which loosely states that if 49 states make something legal,one lone state cannot make it illegal. Keeping my fingers crossed and my laser sight clean. Stay in touch!

        Hi Gray, I used all the info from USA CARRY to get 7 non-resident permits from AZ, CT, UT, NH, VA, FL, ME,

      • Freedomtooperate

        Question: Who the h- keeps voting these communists in?
        Answer: The welfare recipients that keep popping out kids, the NAACP & similar groups. Let me say this much. (just in case it gets brought up… I’m sure it will) How dare you call me a racist! I’ll have you know that I hate everyone equally. I am an equal opportunity hater, without apology.

    • Russdeeh

      I do not think “hunter safety” or past Military service, will give those who
      want to carry the “Legal” part of the whole thing.
      I took a 4 hour class, that stressed the legal aspect of CCW more than the safety. I have countless range time hours, own several handguns, but sure needed to know what one can do and NOT do when you carry.

  • Armed in Chicago

    I would like to thank this web page for being the catalyst for me getting off my lazy butt and getting permits to carry. Thanks to this site,I have taken an avid interest in this and am fighting for CCW in Illinois. Thanks again.

    Is a DD Form 214 sufficient proof of training? What, if any, annotations must be on the form (specific training)?

    • Gray Ryder

      Armed_and_ Safe.

      It all depends on what is a particular states’ requirements are as to proofing of training. Then again, it may depend in what street gang the majority of the state’s politicians were members of in their youth. Thereby judging, that any individual with a criminal history was not suited for military service.

      I do not know of any indivaidual, that served in the military service, that did not experience hour after  hour of weapons and/or firearms training drilled into their confused minds. I always thought that firearms training was a primary necessity to one’s military service.

      I remember, to dammed well, the hours I slept on the floor and my rifle, not my “GUN”, was tucked under the blankets in my bunk. The many hours of the range instructors yelling and screaming directives to the rifle range trainees. The many hours I spent holding my “””RIFLE”””, not my “”GUN””, out in front of me at arms length, because, in the eyes of a range instructor,   I gave cause, for them, to make  me an example of their hellish manner of  one appearing as a south end of a northbound horse.

      If all of the above is not acceptable as firearms training. The politicians considering the qualifications, of such required training, was not qualified, for some unrecorded reason,  to serve in the United States Military Service. and/or have knowledge of such record thereof,  by means of their DD-FORM-214, as to proof of their miltary service

      Gray Ryder

  • BabinGJ/USMCV

    DD-214 Is not proof of training, Federal Documents are not understood by most “civilian” LE communities. The 214 is a Military Discharge document providing proof of service. Specialized documentation would include cert cards ( which are proof’s of training and are specific).

    • Armed_and_Safe

      Well a DD214 with a honorable discharge means that you finished basic training and therefor by definition basic rifleman training. If a fucking hunters safety course qualifies as sufficient why wouldn’t the 214?  

      I was in the Army, I’m not sure what the Corps does but I never received any certifications for any weapons I qualified for (M4, M249, MK19, 50cal,and the M9 (which is a fucking handgun which hunters safety course does not cover)).

      I’m not cursing at you in fact I appreciate your reply, I’m just getting fed up with how the AG is interpreting this law.

      Below is part of the acceptable training part of the regulation. regulation.

      Documentation of completion of small arms training while serving in the U.S. armed forces as demonstrated by an honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable conditions OR a certificate of completion of basic training with a service record of successful completion of small arms training and certification.

      Seems to me that specific proof of small arms training is not required if you do not have a DD-214 (IE currently active, my guess is to be sure you have finished basic training).

      Like I said, “seems to me”. I now that is what the drafters of the bill meant but not sure how that so-called gun friendly AG will interpret it.

      If anyone sees how I am misunderstand this or has any addition info I may have missed please let me know. 

      Thank you again for your response and hopefully the AG will do the right thing and just accept the damn thing.

        If you still have your “Training Jacket”, the dates you went to the range and your QUAL SCORES should be listed there. some commands will provide this info (as it is legally yours) if you don’t have it with your discharge papers. The Sherriffs office can use this info to verify your Military training. I’m in no way a lawyer or a legal expert, but theDepartment where I live accepts this as proof of “Federal Training” which super-ceeds local law in some states. Check into it. Hope this helps.

    I wonder how certain politicians, in Illinois, has the nerve to face their constituency as absolute liars ??  In taking the Oath of Office, after they are elected,  to perserve, protect and defend both the State and National Constitutions. They do a complete reverse by putting their “””OWN PERSONAL OPINIONS””” above that of their SWORN OATH… They are not elected to govern by their personal likes and/or dislikes. They are elected to represent their constituency, not that of they personal opinions and/or what is best for their party’s image. Political parties be dammed. Did not our founding fathers intend this nation be that of the people, by the people and for the people ?

      I took MY Oath seriously. (CHA Police,later disbanded and left us in limbo for Fed Carry) 
      I agree whole heartedly that We in ILLINOIS MUST DEMAND CCW. There is an average of 5 shootings A DAY in Chicago. Despite the BULLSHIT City Gun Ordinances, I CARRY at the Community Outreach Office I work at. There was a homicide infront of the place last week.
      And I have been bringing a gun there each day since.My life and safety is worth far far more than compliance to an ordinance.

    Well a DD214 with a honorable discharge means that you finished basic training and therefor by definition basic rifleman training. If a fucking hunters safety course qualifies as sufficient why wouldn’t the 214?  I was in the Army, I’m not sure what the Corps does but I never received any certifications for any weapons I qualified for (M4, M249, MK19, 50cal,and the M9 (which is a fucking handgun which hunters safety course does not cover)).I’m not cursing at you in fact I appreciate your reply, I’m just getting fed up with how the AG is interpreting this law.Below is part of the acceptable training part of the regulation. regulation.Documentation of completion of small arms training while serving in the U.S. armed forces as demonstrated by an honorable discharge or general discharge under honorable conditions OR a certificate of completion of basic training with a service record of successful completion of small arms training and certification.Seems to me that specific proof of small arms training is not required if you do not have a DD-214 (IE currently active, my guess is to be sure you have finished basic training).Like I said, “seems to me”. I now that is what the drafters of the bill meant but not sure how that so-called gun friendly AG will interpret it.If anyone sees how I am misunderstand this or has any addition info I may have missed please let me know. Thank you again for your response and hopefully the AG will do the right thing and just accept the damn thing.

    • Wardog 2-6

      I feel you brother. On my DD214 the closest thing I have to documentation of SA training is Expert Qual for Carbine and Rifle. And the only reason it shows up there is because the qualifications for that badge happened within the last 6 months. I was expert on the M9 too but it won’t show up unless you had the qualification within 6 months prior to your ETS. Which is BS because people like you and me have more firearms training than most people, even some P.O.G. cops.

      I hope they accept a DD214, but I have a sinking feeling some hippie AG will say that it needs to show a Pistol qual, and if that’s the case then 99% of veterans can’t use it because those badges would have expired by the time we got out and thus not appear on a DD214.

      So I plan on bringing my DD214 and the State of Wisconsin Army National Guard definition of Small Arms, which technically includes rifles, carbines, and shotguns.

        I used my DD214. But I did send in two. One that show small arms qualification and training and I had to get another one for my honorable discharge. One should be enough because all Army solders have basic small arms training.

    • Roger Celmer

      My understanding is that the DD214 will sufffice.  It looks to me that the requirements for training are fine and not designed to deter anyone.

      To Armed_and_Safe…. and Wardog 2-16……
      Quote: “If a f***ing hunters safety course qualifies as sufficient why wouldn’t the 214?”

      First and foremost, thank you for your service and sacrifice in defending my Constitution, Bill of Rights, country, family, friends and myself. I greatly appreciate it. As for your quoted statement, did you not read the information above? It clearly states the DD214 IS acceptable.

      You all should also be aware that Act 35 requires applicants to provide proof of “firearms” SAFETY training. IT does NOT specifically say hand gun, pistol or revolver training. Also for Active Military “Small Arms” training does NOT mean specifically pistol or revolver training either. SA’s are a rifle, shotgun, hand gun, etc., meaning NOT a Grenade, RPG, Bazooka, Artillery, Mortar, etc. training.

      For you all that question the Wisconsin DNR Hunter Safety Training. Don’t knock it until you have gone through it. It is all about “safety”. Not just your own personal safety, but every bodies and every things safety around you. At age 52 I went through a week long, 3 hour a day course with mostly kids. We had 2 Instructors that were excellent, and intensely dedicated to keeping everybodys mind on safety at ALL times while handling a firearm. Because the instructors knew that myself and another older gentleman were attending the class specifically for use in getting our CC Permit, they brought in a volunteer police officer who was a member of the ranges gun club where we did our in the field hands on firearms safety training. The Officer provided us with additional (even though not required) hand gun specific safety training along with allowing us to use his ACP’s at the range. I now highly recommend everyone going through this safety training whether or not it is required for you to hunt in Wisconsin.

        My father was the district director for western Wisconsin hunters education for 12 years and he also agrees with the fact that the Hunters education course is not sufficient nor should be recognized to issue a conceal and carry permit. Due to the fact that they only cover the actions of the pistol because 98% of students that take the course are 12-14 years old and can’t legally own or hunt with a handgun. But it wouldn’t be the first time the State and board of WHEAA didn’t listen to some one that actually mad since.

        And as a vet myself I find it ridiculousness that our Active duty service men and women should have to show a small arms training course completion to qualify, they are defending our dam country. They should only be required to show their Active Duty ID card.

    New info on the Wisconsin DOJ website. 20OCT2011

  • Anonymous

    You can change the maps for who can carry in Wisconsin.

    They haven’t put out a reciprocity list yet but they honor the following states. 
    Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands.

    Also per my question below the answer is yes. A DD-214 with honorable discharge is sufficient  as training without providing any specif training. So congrats to all my fellow vets out there that can soon carry without jumping threw further hoops. 

    Even though the AG added things he was forbidden too, This is great news for Wisconsinites and seems to me it will only get better. Its about time. 

    Oh yeah GO PACK.

    Out-of-state Licenses Recognized in Wisconsin Licensees from any of the listed states will be recognized in Wisconsin as an out-of-state licensee per Sec. 175.60 (1)(g) Wis. Stats. This was determined based on the statutory requirement in s. 165.25 (12) that the listed state requires, or designates that the holder chose to submit, to a background search that is comparable to Wisconsin’s background check in s. 175.60 (1)(ac). Wisconsin’s background check includes only two components (1) A criminal history record search; (2) A search of the national instant criminal background check system (NICS). If another states background check meets the same requirements a Wisconsin resident must meet, the DOJ has recognized that state. The DOJ has tried to be as inclusive as possible and will periodically check and update the list if other states can be added. This list is current as of 10/18/11:

    Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands

  • Jaysimkin

    Does Wisconsin honor a non-resident license issued by a State, e.g., Utah or Pennsylvania, whose requirements for issuance match those of Wisconsin? Thus, if a New Hampshire resident has a Connecticut non-resident license, is it lawful for the New Hampshire resident to carry in Wisconsin?

    • Anonymous

      Yes, they will accept resident and non resident permits from the States that they accept. The law doesn’t make the distinction between resident and non-resident permits. I also called the DOJ and confirmed this. As long as the permit is from a State that Wisconsin recognizes you are good to go in either case.

  • 5cents

    Calm down vets. The way I am reading the requirements, it says that “former” military need only supply a DD214 as proof, it goes on to say in the next line that the requirement for “certification of small arms training” ONLY applies if you are current ACTIVE duty military personel. In other words, those who are currently going through their basic training can’t apply until AFTER they complete basic training. 

    • Gray Ryder

      Howdy 5cents,

      Did anyone ever consider the need for one’s DD214 was in support an applicants proof of an Honorable Discharge ? The world is aware of the weapons training, that is required and/or provided by all of the USA military. I do not know as to what degree of weapons training is required  of all  of  the branches of the military. However, I do know, that every recruit  of the Army, Navy and the Marines  has, within the first half of their  basic and/or boot training, weapons range qualification, classroom familiarization and maintenance of every personal  self protection weapon, that their Military Order of Service,  MOS, that is their assigned military standard of service requires. For an example, infantry has mostly rifles and several larger caliber machine guns. Cooks also are issued rifles of various calibers.An exception to the rule is, that ocassional a NCO cook  will be issued a side arm and/or an autuomatic Grease Gun. Platoon  NCO’s are ,  as a rule, issued side arms and some semi and/or automatic smaller caliber rifles.  It is my understanding, that an active military service individual is never issued a weapon, that is not in their MOS standard of dutyand/or that they have not qualified on . However, in an ongoing fire fight one will use whatever is available.

    Wisconsin DOJ still is dropping the ball on contacting other states regarding “reciprocity”.  The explanation given to me over the phone is that Wisconsin has sent letters to every state and territory’s Attorney General office and has yet to hear back on few.  I would think they could include a couple of states, including my own, that has the legislation’s requirements by looking it up themselves.  DOJ would please me if they could step up to the plate and follow through on guidance given by the LAW that was just enacted.  Also to my knowledge traveling on public transportation cannot ban firearm carry but Madison has guidelines on their police website restricting firearms on the Madison Metro System.  Way to go Madison police, keep writing your own laws.

    Here’s a thought that I think we should all consider here in Wisconsin. I’m sure there will be tons & tons of “NO CARRY PERMITTED” signs magically appearing in many businesses here. I am 100% for a blacklist here. If I see one of those signs in a window anywhere in Wisconsin, let me make myself clear, I WILL NOT SUPPORT YOU!!! If you wake up & pull the signs down, I’ll reconsider. I do not compromise with anti gun mentalities. I’ll shop your competition even if it costs more. Here’s my reasoning. I’d to open carry again, but can’t bring myself to do it. The 1st & only time I did it blew up in my face (which is by far an understatement). Here’s what happened. Got roughed up by 3 cops, got dragged to a mental health institution for a psych evaluation, lost my job @ wally world who called & sicked the cops after me in the 1st place with highly false info.

    Just to throw a little more confusion into the Military training question:

    1.  I am not on actve duty, and hence do not have an active duty ID card
    2.  I did not submit a DD-214 when I applied for my FL CCW, which requires “proof of training” similar to that of WI
    3.  I sent a copy of my DD Form 2 (RETIRED)  in lieu of those documents specified by Florida law, and received my CCW without delay (about 2 weeks, over the Christmas/New Year holidays).

    Florida licensing officials used their heads, and recognized that a Military retiree with 20 years of service meets the training requirements of the law.  Whether WI officials will compensate for this failure of the law to recognize the status of a Military retireee is yet to be determined.

    As far as I have been told you cannot apply online.  You can, however, download the application from the WDOJ website.  You need to submit pages 2, 3 and 4 with signatures in the required places, along with proof of training (or DD214) and your check for $50.00.

      Yes Sir. At age 52, (same situation just a bit younger) I had to and did go through the hunters safety course. It only costs $10.00 plus a small range fee. Alot cheaper than attending those other programs being offered. It was a little strange going through the class with a bunch of kids but I did get alot out of it. There was one other person around my age attending the class. I was the only one to get a 100% score on the test which made me feel better about being with a bunch of kids.

      Well Son,
      No offense intended by calling you son. I am old enough to be your father. I am a Korean Veteran. To eliminate any questions as to my qualifications relative to the provision required to obtain a CCW from any State. I enrolled in several hand gun training sessions sponsored by the NRA and sanctioned by a local Junior College. To date, I have had 65 hours of training relative the use, safety and self defense of hand guns.

      Does your state not have a grandfather clause as the requirements and age limitations reative to  the requirements of gun provisions ??????

      Most individuals consider my intensions  and reasoning, thereof, as an  “”OVER KILL”” involvement. However, in considering the knowledge and firearms experience, of the majority of the individuals making the provisions of their state’s CCW, one can never cover all of the bases of stupidy.

      It is best, that you try to follow the state,s CCW requirements  as best as you can. If I were you, I would look for a NRA hand gun training location and enroll in the said course. NRA is now offering  training classes at a majority of the Junior Colleges in the personal  of self defense in the use of handguns. A few states still require an CCW applicant to enroll in their state’s regulated training sessons, which are usually a one day and/or three to 4 hours training.  In my opinion, what can be accomplished in a such requirement ? Once again, in my opinion, this manner of requirement was imposed by certain legislators, that are living examples of why birth control should have been considered in their conception. The NRA training sessons are much more reasonable, money wise, than the $100.00 to $150.00 one day or the three to four hours of training.

      Hey Genius, I got my Hunters safety certificate two years ago, I’m 35 now. I have been handling guns since I was 10 years old. Started buying them as soon as the powers that be would allow me too. Guess what, I can own and shoot them no matter how safe I am but I can’t hunt with them until someone says I can. How much sense does that make.

      • vet n hunter

        should require proof of training, military or hunter education or whatever to purchase a gun. rifle, pistol, revolver or grenade launcher. anything. the reason 5 year old kids accidently shoot other 5 year old kids is because daddy or uncle didn’ t have enough sense to know what to do with his firearm to keep his child safe. its all about SAFE use of the weapon.

    as of 1972 there was a grandfather clause for obtaining a hunter safety cert. after december 1972 wisconsin residents are required to take a hunter safety with taking such class there is a requirement for range time to obtain said cert. so  residents who were born before jan 1 1973 and you have not taken a hunter safety class unfortunately you will need to take a safety course

  • Stephen Parrott

    Some Technical Colleges have put on safety classes. MSTC near Wisconsin rapids had one. It was $15.00 A friend of mine who was an FFL dealer and a hunter for many years took it. He thought it was interesting and well done.I had hunter Safety in NJ back in the 60’s I did not send a copy of this cert. I did send my DD-214
    As for the required classes. Well Assemblyman Molepske 71’st district was advocating us to do it right the first time. Referring to mirroring the Minnesota training requirements. That way we could have reciprocity with MN
    Well it did not happen. Now if we cheese heads travel to MN we will need to leave the iron at home or have another permit. So Utah may be  on the list in the future. As for now I don’t plan on traveling to Mn anyhow.

    Even though not perfect I think we should thank all of our supporters in office for passing a common sense bill which will  help keep our friends and families safer.

  • Gray Ryder

    That, has reference to just what it states. Michigan and Colorado will not honor a non-resident CCW  from any state. That, is if a n individual “”LIVING”” in Florida has a  CCW Florida permit their CCW will be honored. Now, if an individual, living in Illinois, has a  Non-Resident CCW from Florida, it will not be honored. It is best, that you refer to all of state’s CCW provisions and be able to distinguish the difference between the provisions thereof. To my knowledge, no two state’s has the same line, verse and chapter of statute provisions relative to  CCW. There are links on the Internet of each state and their CCW proviions. An individual living a state, that has been issued CCW permit is a resident. An individual not living in a state and having a CCW from, that said state, is a non-resident.
