I know they don't have ccw. Packing.org info reflects an unfriendly attitude in gun transport.

You Wisconsin residents, how is it?

Looking at property up state as a part time resident.

Gun must be cased and unloaded with no ammo in with the gun, And placed where driver/passengers can't get at it quickly. So in the trunk if you've got one, Or behind the seat in a pickup or in the cargo compartment in an SUV.

Not the best, but I get the impression (From no particular source) That it's as much to prevent poaching deer from your car as anything else. And a case is pretty much anything that covers the gun completely. Shops pass out Tyvek sleeves to take new stuff home in. Thats all you need.

I think that, with the exception of our lack of CCW permits, Wisconsin is a great state for guns.

We don't need any kind of permits to buy or sell, unlike many other states.

No limits on the number of guns you can buy or the frequency with which you buy them.

Full-auto's, suppressors, AOW's and other NFA stuff is fine (depending upon the sheriff).

No waiting period on long guns, 48 hours on handguns (we'll get rid of that eventually).

Range protection act so whining anti's can't shut down existing ranges.

Preemption bill prevents cities from enacting their own gun laws.

One of the largest ratios of NRA members to gun owners in general of any state in the country.

Anti-gunners haven't been able to get a bill passed for as long as I can remember. (Was probably the 48 hour waiting period, and I forget when that happened).

RKBA amendment to the state constitution is changing things as we speak.

Like Monkeyleg says...one of the reasons I returned to Wisconsin was its gun-friendliness. Now that I'm out in the country, I'm looked at funny if I try to be discreet when taking the shottie from the car to the house. In Cali I'd hear screams of horror...

Good state except for lack of CCW.

The storage of firearms in a vehicle has more to do with DNR influencing laws more than anything else. We only have like 3 million deer in our state, a population which would be quickly decimated if northwoods bubba poached a few for the pot. :rolleyes:

Much as I like to complain about this state it is rather nice to live here as a
gun guy. My only gun related issues are no CCW and that Wal-Mart wont sell
pistols or pistol ammo, but I think thats a nation wide thing.

'Bout a month agoI was buying ammo, and the guy in front of me asked the cashier if he could buy ammo for the shotgun he had purchased. Really made me grateful to live in Wisconsin. First time in a long time too.

Come to the Wally World in Hudson, Silent-Snail. I buy my 9mm WWB there all the time. Must just be in your area.
Wisconsin is a great state to live in, and as has been noted, easygoing except ccw. We're still working on that. One more trivial reg; Pistol-caliber SMG's must be registered with the state. So, you're OK with your MG42, but you'd better let 'em know about that MP5. :rolleyes:
Milwuakee is it's own separate People's Socialist Republic, I think. I try not to go down in that corner of the state if I can help it. :p

entropy, you're right about Milwaukee. Especially when it comes to full-auto's.

I bought a Thompson back in 1988, and Sheriff Artison's deputy signed the Form 4. A year or so later, the word came down from the mayor and others that no chief LEO should sign Form 4's. And that's the way it is today.

I live five doors outside MKE in Greenfield. Our chief here is very pro-gun, and he signs the forms. Unfortunately, I can't afford the subguns anymore. :(
