It became legal today to carry a concealed firearm in Wisconsin, with a valid Wi. permit, or a valid permit from a state that Wisconsin honors. http://www.handgunla...s/wisconsin.pdf

I have the Wisconsin CCW permit. It really is not a big deal to me to carry a handgun. Having been a police officer for many years, I commonly (and sometimes were required to carry) carried a Colt Combat Commander .45 ACP in an shoulder rig. But I wanted the permit now, to be legal of course. I carry when I am out walking. I could simply carry a revolver out in the open but I hate the idea of cars passing by seeing me armed. Understand, where I walk is in a national forest. My worries are not so much armed attackers, but bears, wolves, coyotes, and stray dogs. For instance, I was walking one afternoon and there on a hill not 50 yards from me stood a black bear, watching me walk by. Believe me... it bothered me. At least now, if an animal wanted to press the issue, I could make his day very uncomfortable.

Its also nice because if I want to transport the handgun, I don't have to unload it. When I used to bait bear, I would travel all over the forest on an ATV. And most places, I would park the ATV and then "walk in" with the bait. When you bait, you never go in unarmed. So at every station, I would have to load and unload the revolver when I was getting back on the road. And when you're doing several bait stations.. that loading and unloading is a PITA. This way, I can tuck the revolver loaded, in a holster, and drive the ATV anywhere I want. So its a matter of convenience.

I too have a ccw but do not often make use of it. It is a matter of convenience to me too.
