But I did find that YES, LE can use Department issued ID cards without having a CCW as long as the card shows training qualification within 6 months from date of issue. You must also use a department comparable type weapon, (In other words, yes we can carry while waiting for our CCW permit, but get a CCW permit, because I don't want to have the department continue to dictate what I carry).

As CC permit holders and advocates of the 2nd amendments we need to keep something in mind. We are a minority group. As such, history tells us we have a long and hard road to haul. We will have to strive daily to show the majority that it is in all law abiding citizens best interest to allow the good citizens to bear arms and protect their families and property. The criminals have had it too easy for way too long.
49 states now have some type of carry and or castle doctrine laws. However, many of the laws are not as clear as they should be. In some states the laws are still somewhat restrictive.
We can never stop advocating for our 2nd amendment rights. Some of you may wonder why Smitty901 and others continue to want to see the number of permits issued at an all time high. Answer is simple, at 80,000+ issued it means we remain the minority in Wisconsin. For us to even come close to not being a minority we will need a minimum of 800,000 permits issued. You might ask why is that, its all about numbers for politicians.
800,000 votes carry more weight than 80,000

I've had my permit now for about 3 1/2 to 4 months.
MUCH unlike I was told before the law passed, I haven't had the urge to go on a killing spree or shoot anyone for cutting me off while driving.
I'm glad I could start carrying during winter and get used to the feel of it while being able to wear warm, bulky clothes that doesn't print. It gave me a lot of confidence and as I'm starting to experiment with clothes I'll be wearing this summer I'm feeling pretty good about my setup. My 3" SP 101 may be a little heavier than I'd prefer for carrying in the summer, but I can make do for now.
I was religiously at my mailbox everyday at 2:30 paying my respects as if it was some sort of idol for 2 weeks straight! The wait is tough but when you open the box and score it really is a great feeling
