Can someone please explain or give me a link to a site that specifically states where I can an cannot carry in WI? I am a Minnesota Permit holder and WI has reciprocity with MN. Also one specific question I have is, in WI, when I am carrying do I have to keep it concealed or can I open carry as well? I just dont want to get into trouble for accidentally open carrying, like for example, in case my shirt rides up and exposes the pistol? Thank you I appreciate any comments?

To add to the post above mine, OC is legal in WI without needing a permit.
This should give you most of all you need to know about CC-ing in Wisconsin. I wouldn't worry about a "wardrobe malfunction," since open carry is also legal (but follows the same prohibited location laws as CC). http://www.doj.state.wi.us/dles/cib/...q-20111020.pdf (Page 40 for the prohibited locations)

I'm glad to see that our Wisconsin members are jumping right in to help with links.
I'll add another that the OP may not be aware of which is a good source of information on reciprocity and other state laws.
Click on your state to see what states honour your permist and click on another state to get information on need to inform, restricted areas etc.
You'll be just fine if you print or open carry. Now you'll have to read some of those links provided above to find out prohibited carry places.

Just for future reference when MN permit holders search this thread: As of 1/2013, the major legal difference in prohibited places between Minnesota and Wisconsin are taverns. You may not under any circumstance open carry in a place that serves alcohol in Wisconsin.

Thank you all. I will have some reading to do this morning before I head out to WI. I appreciate all the info!
