    WI CCL address change

    It says in the back of my license that I have 30 days to change my address with the DOJ...has anybody done this? Is there a fee? I have until August 21 apparently but I'd like to be on it sooner.

    And please tell me they don't just tape a new address over the top of the old one line the DMV used to do...

    I had to change my address after I moved. There was no fee if done within 30 days.

    If you want a license reflecting your new address it will cost you 12 bucks regardless.

    I did a google search for [wisconsin doj concealed carry] and came up with this as the top hit:
    http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/...oncealed-carry

    On the right of that page is a link mislabeled "CCW forms":
    http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/...arry/ccw-forms

    The second link on that page is this, the form you're supposed to use to report your address change:
    http://www.doj.state.wi.us/sites/def.../dj-le-285.pdf

    And the text below it says:
    Licensees are required to notify the Department of Justice Firearms Unit in writing within 30 days of changing their address.
    To do this you must submit a completed and signed address change form.
    If you would like a new license to reflect your updated address you must include a check or money order payable to the Wisconsin Department of Justice in the amount of $12.
    However, you are not required to replace your license when you change your address.
    You should update your address with the DMV first, can do that online.

    I wonder if it could cause a problem were a cop to ask that magic question they never seem to ask if I don't pay the $12 to get the new ID. That probably means they'll be disarming me for "safety" and touching my gear. I don't like other people touching my gear. Or sharing popcorn.





    Hint for 5-0:


    "Why are you carrying a gun?"

    "Bears."


    "can I see ID?"





    "nope."





    "Do you have a carry permit?" (instead of "how do I know you're not a felon?")





    "why yes, here is that permit and my drivers license."





    And that, deputies, is how you get around that pesky RAS and my refusal to ID.

    I just did mine. I printed the document off the DOJ website, and mailed it to the address on the back of my CCL. As others stated, there's a fee to have the new address reflected on your license. I opted not to have a new card made so it didn't cost me a dime.

    Why would they try to steal your property just because you're OC and have no RAS that you're committing a crime?
    And why would you choose to provide your ID & carry license upon demand, when they have no RAS that you're doing something requiring a license or ID? That's just reinforcing to them that what they're doing is acceptable.


    cop: "can I see ID?"
    me: "nope."
    uninformed cop: "Do you have a carry permit?" (instead of "how do I know you're not a felon?")
    me: What am I doing that you think requires me to have a concealed carry license?

    If he comes up with an actual crime he thinks I'm committing, for which a defense is having a concealed carry license (e.g. carrying concealed, carrying in the magical 1000' bubble around a school, carrying in a taxpayer-owned building) I'll show my licenses.

    Ok Doug, seriously...couldn't you just post that at the end of your last comment? Why log out of one account and into another?

    I wouldn't be a bit surprised to hear that he has multiple computers running, logged into each puppet simultaneously... pretty creepy, if you ask me. Talk about shunning ICKY!
