I found this to be very helpful, if you have read this great, if not, take a look at it.
This just added to my confusion. Where does WI law state that you can carry a handgun in a holster?
"Right now Wisconsin law states you can openly carry a handgun in a holster"
A principle of law is 'what is not prohibited is permitted'.
I was just making fun of their wording :-)
I would have written that WI allows the carry of holstered handguns instead.
That is simply an older copy of what is on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_law...e%29#Wisconsin
I much prefer this: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum57/27414.html OCDO thread as it includes the case law references as well

WOW Doug, a straight forward, sensible and logical, In Layman's plain English response! I knew you had it in you.
Even though there are people out there that dislike you for all the "cluttered" language you use, you at times exercise a reasonable side and dispel those naysayers!
To bnhcomputing, thanks for the followup link, good reference material. I had posted a refrence to a book last week called "Criminal Justice Case Briefs" Significant Cases in Criminal Procedure, it lays out a lot of information in Plain English.
The original link is an excellent summary, thanks for posting.
One item that needs to be updated: There is no longer any restriction on age for handling a firearm or participating in target practice with an adult present. This was changed last August with the signing of the law allowing 10 and 11 year olds to hunt with a mentor.
