    First Timer here

    I actually stumbled onto this website doing some reseach for a speech on the new concealed carry law. I just wanted to say hi, but im not sure if this is the right forum for that. I'm awaiting to turn my application in for concealed carry for a little bit till I can afford to get a smaller gun. But I did open carry in my truck on the first just because I could. It's been a long time coming for wisconsin and I'm glad that the law is finally in place. I think that I am still more leaning towards open than concealed carry just for ease but I want the permit just because. Also so I can carry my fixed blade knife in my pocket.

    I'm fairly new to the whole open carry thing and before I left for the army 5 years ago it was a pretty hot topic with people getting arrested for OC in their front yards. I see a lot has changed since then and I'm glad it has. I'm not sure what kind of get togethers you guys do here but even my dad says he sees the OC events from time to time.

    Welcome aboard!
    Go ahead & send in your application... it'll take them a while to process it.
    And do come to some of the get-togethers.

    I'm going to wait till december to send in my application. From the research I did, it said a 45 day wait for apps in November but only 21 days for December and after.

    They supposedly have 35 people working full time, including weekends to get ALL the applications processed within 21 days, not 45. The longer you wait the longer it will be before you get it in the mail.

    For November 1-30, they have 45 days. December 1, they have 21. I'm sure their goal is 21 days, but I'm not holding my breathe.

    Welcome ....

    Everyone also thought that the 45 day wait was going to happen, but to everyones suprise, the DOJ started processing and mailing the same day they started accepting applications (NOV. 1) some even got the license the next day.... So as stated... get your application in right away.. the sooner you get it in the sooner you will have it in your hand. Even if you do not have a smaller firearm, it will come in REAL handy while carrying your current firearm in a vehicle and driving through a school zone, and also no need for concern on OC in a vehicle based on location of the firearm and whether or not it might still be considered "concelaed"....
