Just got back from grocery shopping at the Mukwonago Walmart (Which is the only grocery store open at 1:30AM). Went about the same as shopping there during the day, except this time I was greeted leaving the exit by a nice police officer who asked for my ID. I gave it to him, he called it in, said that most people get in trouble for entering businesses with policies against firearms which walmart does not, or from concealing them because my shirt was untucked and could possibly cover it, then sent me on my way. Well, the Waukesha County sheriff department must have been really bored, because as soon as I left the parking lot, I was pulled over by 4 marked and 2 unmarked police cars.
The story I got was that I was obviously "new" to carrying a firearm, since I am guessing was because he didn't know me on a first name basis, and his not so observant partner claimed that I entered my vehicle without encasing my firearm. Which wasn't the case, because they were obviously waiting for me to leave the parking lot. He could see that the holster was empty, but wanted to make sure that I didn't have any ammunition on my person, and the firearm was in the case and unloaded. On top of that, they wanted to make sure I had all of the ammunition out of the magazine and not in the same case as the firearm. When I told him it wasn't, he said the ammunition needed to be stored separate from the firearm. I asked for a statute number, and about 1/2 hour later, I was quoted 167.31, which as far as I can tell says nothing of the sort.
Then they decided the case wasn't far enough out of reach. I am driving an extended cab ranger, and I had the case behind the passenger side of the bench seat. I have to remove the seat belt in order to reach it there, but they told me it shouldn't be in the passenger compartment, then later decided that it should be behind the DRIVERS seat.
Long story short, no citations, but it wasted about 1 hour of mine, and at least 6 other officers time.
