Register a Gun in Wisconsin

Wisconsin is often considered one of the many states that are lenient when it comes to the registration and use of firearms. Wisconsin state law does not require that anyone who is eligible to obtain a gun license or permit for the purchase of shotguns, rifles, handguns, or other firearms, register or acquire state permission to do so. This being stated, all retailers, dealers, manufacturers, pawnbrokers, or businesses that sell firearms inside of the state are required to keep relatively detailed records of every individual sale and all purchases.  These records, by law, must be kept on-site of the location of business, and must be reproduced immediately upon request should any law enforcement official require the information. Wisconsin allows the carrying of concealed weapons with a state-issued license and requires the applicant to be at least 21 years of age. Open carry is completely legal in the state.

Where to Register – No registration of firearms is required in the state of Wisconsin for open carry.

Needed to Register – Since no registration is required, you will only be required to provide information while purchasing a weapon from a dealer which will be required to be produced at the point of purchase, and there will be a 48 hour waiting period prior to having the ability to pick up the weapon if eligible.
