    West Bend Fleet Farm posted......with a pro-gun sign!

    The entrance door at the West Bend Fleet Farm has a sign that says it welcomes people lawfully carrying a firearm. Outstanding!

    I wish there was a Fleet Farm* around here.



    * Not to be confused with the anti rights farm and fleet.

    That's actually from the Germantown/Menominee Falls Fleet Farm, which is posted with the same sign.

    I notice it says concealed carry. I should call the manager and get their policy on open carry.

    They allow both open and concealed carry. In fact, Stewart Mills III is a member of AR15 forums. He posted what the signs for wisconsin would say a while back on that forum. He's a great guy and fully supports 2A rights. You should never need to worry while carrying at any Mills' Fleet Farm.

    And if you get hassled, be sure to get names and numbers and you can post your story on wisconsin AR15 forum, he'll be sure to see it!

    Here you go:

    The signage will apply to WI shortly and until that time we have instructed our WI management on the legalities or Open Carry.

    We have instructed our management of the following:

    Recently, a number of questions have been raised regarding customers in our stores who are openly carrying handguns. These handguns have been obviously visible on the customers and in a holster. Questions have arisen if this type of carry is legal in the state of Wisconsin and if we want to allow this in our stores.

    Open carry has always been legal in the state of Wisconsin and will continue to be legal even after the concealed carry law goes into effect in November. Since it is legal for customers to openly carry handguns, all members of Management must be aware of the law and the fact that Mills Fleet Farm will support a customer’s right to legally carry in our stores.

    If you have further questions regarding this, please contact my office.


    That being said when CCW permits are issued in WI we will encourage our customers to get them. It is always good refresher training and there is no use scaring little old ladies or making them uncomfortable while shopping. Not that I am personally a stickler, I don’t wear sloppy baggie clothes so I have the tendency to “print” a little, but at least I make attempt.

    Mr Stewart Mills III seems to "get it" and understands that "No Guns = No Money". Perhaps the Blaine family (Farm & Fleet) will follow suit, but I am not holding my breath. In any event, when it comes to Mills Fleet Farm, I am glad that the statement regarding open and concealed carry came "right from the top" so individual store managers (think Madistan) cannot implement their own preferences over Corporate Policy.

    FWIW, It's been mentioned on the WCI facebook page that farm and fleet will now allow guns on Nov. 1st. However, this was someone speaking to a store manager, not to corporate, so it remains to be seen if it's corporate wide, and if it means both CC and OC.
