I would think most who open carry would have a retention holster which keeps someone from yanking it out.

The ban on carrying concealed weapons in Wisconsin has held fast for about 134 years.

State law does not prohibit the open carrying of a firearm :)

Wisconsin and Illinois
are the only 2 States in the Union
that have no provision, what so ever, for Concealed Carry.


No sh!t, Sting, and it's a joke. It is hard to imagine the NRA and the gun-totin' conservatives can't get together and repeal the law in our two states. Wisconsin is full of hunters and gun lovers, and I'm sure Illinois has it's share.

The politicians and lawmakers will NEVER get it - it's not the law-abiding citizen that's the problem - it's the CRIMINALS!! "Outlaw guns and only the outlaws will have guns". Do you think all the punks in Milwaukee or Rockford or Chicago give a crap about concealed carry? No! They've got their Glock or whatever stuck down in their pants ready for the next drive-by or drug deal.

On the flipside, for home protection, a 12 ga. pump cut down to the federal minimum length loaded up with buckshot rounds is going to be far more effective than any pistol, and less chance of putting a stray round from your 9mm or 45 ACP through a neighbor's house. The intruder won't have a chance to sue you for injuries received during the B&E to your house, either since they will have to mop him up rather than carry him out.

Has anyone seen the document the NRA put out a few years ago?
Australia passed a law that required all law abiding citizens to turn in they're guns. I think that's how it went.
Criminals were in they're glory! Now folks had no protection. And criminals had nothing to fear.

Yea, I think it was in England too.
But they passed the law in Australia back in 96/97
They called it the gun ban and buy back law.
I guess you had to turn in all your guns and they would pay you x amount of dollars.
I did'nt realize it was that long ago.

Black powder handguns are not registered in PA. , is that the same for all states ? This would be a carry cross the state line gun without a permit or a ff liscence. Just hope the bad guys don't know about the purchase of one.

I have not OC'ed yet, but like one person said.. " If you want your rights stop hiding them in your pocket or under your shirt"... just saying...

Edit to add, It is acceptable to OC here , the police have been advised of the law and are told not to bother people who OC. The sheriff is in support as well as the Attorney General..

'Don't sell out the farm', guys!

What they don't know might be to your advantage.

How many guns do you have? As many as I need, but not as many as I Want!!!!

Ruger Country up here, and they have some very nice instruments that look, feel, and shoot wonderfully.
They are working long days and many hours, can't keep up with production.
Many old timers have put off retirement to help fill the void for skilled, experienced labor.
A great company to work for....and a good member of the community for over 60 years here.

No, I can not get you any 'special deals', sure wish that was an option. Even employees have to wait for special order weapons. :!: :roll: ;)

I know people that moved to NH so they could OC.

If not for one family tie, I'd probably be up there today. I saw a job at Sig Sauer that was calling my name. :)

A good percentage of the time I leave my house I'm carrying concealed. Even though I can legally carry (open and concealed) it always makes me nervous that I'm going to be asked to leave certain places if they spot the outline on my side. Society isn't very gun friendly. :nono:

Anyway I have a glock 23 (40 cal) and a keltec p3at (.380)

I have OC on occasion in Pa. & was told a few times that if you have a concealed permit they would prefer that you carry concealed, guess its a lot easier on them. I do however always let them know if I`m carrying when stuck in one of the DUI checkpoints, better all around & they also then are focusing on the gun & permit & the drinking part is on the back burner. I would hate to reach for my wallet & have the cop that sometimes sneaks up on the passenger side see the gun.

Just knowing that residents were armed prompted them to move on to easier targets. Most criminals don't have a death wish.

Which sign would you post outside your house:
"There are no weapons in this home" or "Residents living in this home are armed" :?: :?: :?:
