I'm new to Open Carry in Wisconsin and have only done so while walking in and around the woods near my house. I've been somewhat intimidated to OC in town and am not sure what the local LEO's responses would be.
Are there general restrictions for open carrying in locations where there are a lot of people and LEO's present?
1. I'm wondering about OC'ing at the County Fair ~ do they have to post a NO GUN allow sign or is it a public place anytime.
2. I'm wondering about the local Walmart store. Is Walmart generally gun friendly?
Is it worth asking the question before hand or beg for forgiveness later?

Hello, and new to the forum.
I posted this on another thread, so I'm repeating my question.
Here is my question, in the state of Wisconsin where I live, can I carry my .357 S&W model 65 3" bbl with the chamber full (gun loaded) in an open carry (holstered gun in plane site on my hip)?????????? Again with the revolver fully loaded???????
Yes, why would you think not?
Here are all the Wisconsin Statutes ("state laws")
Here are all of the Wisconsin Administrative Codes (rules and regulations, like from the DNR)
There are more than a thousand chapters and much more than ten thousand sub-chapters.
Each political sub-division and municipality is permitted regulated ordinances under 'home rule' from the Wisconsin Constitution.
Here is the Wisconsin Constitution

The reason I ask, is there is some (now I know for sure) misinformation being spread that the men in the Janesville, Wisconsin Gazette article had no ammo in there firearms, or the magazines that were in the pistols as pictured.
That the magazine in the, magazine pouch was full, but not the one inserted in the handgun.
I just needed a clarification. Thanks
