    Also curious. I've only seen one open carrier ever, at a Walmart. No one was freaking out.

    I know this doesn't really answer your question, but I think you might get a better feel on how well OC is accepted at OpenCarry.org | ?A Right Unexercised is a Right Lost? .

    I've never seen anyone openly carrying in the Milwaukee area.

    I see it every once and a while out here in Waukesha county & Washington county. I stick with cc. but I have several friends that just started to oc about 2 months ago and its just no big deal anymore. Never had any issues when with them. They are all permit holder and instructors like myself. I suppose you could argue that we really don't go any where. ( Like Milwaukee county )

    Yep Madison police took me to the ground for no reason. They got a few punches in for fun until a Milwaukee officer put a stop to it.
    He was there helping with Problems in Madison.
    Remember Milwaukee COP told his officers to take them to the ground and make it hurt ,take the gun make them sue to get it back.
    In Wisconsin it all depends on the political swing of the area. Madison has been sued many times already. DA said so what .

    The day Gov. Walker signed the CC we were all OC. It was a great day . 20 years of work and a different Gov vetoing it twice.

    I've only seen two people OC in SE Wisconsin. The first time a few people quietly commented but that was all, and the second time nobody seemed to notice. This has all been outside of Milwaukee County, though.

    I think Wisconsin is like most other states. In the country OC will be more excepted. The Big city, not so much.

    I hear that outside of Madison and Milwaukee it's not too bad, although since Wisconsin hasn't had CCW very long, you can probably expect some raised eyebrows.
    Hakkaa päälle!

    Madison is crazy town. Mad-Town

    I have never seen anyone open carry in Wisconsin. A buddy said that he has done it a few times and had no problems.

    Maybe because COP said he has told his officers to take any open carry to the ground take the weapon and make them fight him in court to get it back .
