    Thanks for the service and welcome home! (when you get here anyhow)

    There are lots of threads here you can read about OCing in Wisconsin. Just browse around a bit. I'd probably post something big but I should probably get back to work!

    Here's a pamphlet with some information. Good to carry one when you OC.

    You're referring to the school zone? Doesn't matter if it's a private or public school, you can't carry anything but an encased and unloaded firearm within 1000 feet of the school property line unless you are on private property.

    Minnesota gun permit is not valid in Wisconsin, nor is a permit from any other state.

    Thank you for your service, RD; when are you due home?

    If you want to learn about Wisconsin law as it's written, you can't do any better than
    this thread which lists all the applicable statutes. I believe it's better to understand them yourself than to rely on somebody else's interpretation.

    You cant operate a vehicle while carrying either, they consider this to be concealed carry. So you wouldnt have to unload and secure while dropping your child off because you couldnt carryanyway. If your walking him/her to school you wouldnt be able to get with in 1000 feet of the school before your in violation of the school zone. The right to defend yourself ends when your in a vehicle or near a school.


    Oh, and as said before. Thank you for fighting for us.

    I don't think you can even carry a handgun in IL. WI and IL are the only 2 states that don't allow concealed carry.

    You then enter a whole new world of crap and loss of rights. Illinois has some really draconian gun laws.
    If you are a resident of IL, you would need to procure a FOID card (Firearm Owners Identification) before having the legal ability to own, possess, or purchase any modern firearm, ammunition, or reloading supplies.

    If you are a resident of another state (such as WI) the FOID card requirement becomes null & void, but they have several cities where you are not even allowed to possess a handgun.
    Their laws are very difficult to find, and understand. If you are traveling through the state without any stops besides gas, the federal laws protects you and give you the ability to transport legally if it is encased, unloaded, out of the passenger compartment and the ammo is separate from the case.

    It is a huge clusterphuck basically, My advice would be to avoid IL, but if you are forced to visit, have pepper spray or an electronic device with you in accordance with their laws.

    BTW, Welcome back, thank you, and dress warm!

    welcome back, and glad you're doing ok.

    don't take this personal, but it almost sounds as if you might be just a bit overzealous to get into carrying. please take your time, and read AS MUCH AS YOU CAN about the wisconsin laws, and any other states you want to travel to, so you don't become a "legal casualty" like some people do.

    i have been reading and asking on here for quite a while, and am still very nervous about carrying in public because of all the "fine print" in and around the law. so unfortunately i haven't really carried away from my property yet.


    also where in wisconsin are you returning to???

    if i sound over zealous then try not having a firearm on you at all times. I been adjusted to having my m4 straped to me for 14 to 15 months. I dont like not having a weapons near me. I do feel safer having it on me or at least in not allowed setting a spot where i can go to and get it if need be.

    Thanks for the information and laws.. i been trying to sort through the garbage we have been hearing about what you can and can't do.

    sorry didn't mean to sound rude or insulting. i had actually thought about that, but neglected to mention it. i do understand where you are coming from having been there. unfortunately the problem is that i don't think using that as an excuse here is going to fly.

    hey i'm not against you..........just don't wanna see you get in trouble with some dumb LEO's right after getting back from hell.

    Good luck and be careful! The last days are just as deadly as the first days.

    I used to tell my guys to be sure and keep a short-timer's calendar journal because just a few days out and all you'll remember, and miss, are the good parts, the camaraderie and personal successes.

    It took me years to remember the sweaty anxiety of the 'fish in the water' alarm or 'rig for collision'.

    You may carry in places that serve alcohol if you get permission from the owner or manager. Make sure you get that in writing or recorded. Several of us have done this without incident.
