gazambo - send a PM to any of the people in your area listed on the list in the first post. Those folks have stated that they will help as best they can. If you do not get any help off this list, send me a PM and I will make some calls and get you some help.

Adamant, you are welcome to stop on up in Minocqua for the firearms fun weekend and meet some of us. It is only an hour and a half from Stevens Point. Check the "Firearms Fun Weekend" thread just below this one for all the details.

Yes that would def help ease some of the anxiety that goes along with OC for the first time. I hold a Non resident Conceal Carry Permit out of Utah which allows me to carry in many States other than this one at the moment. So even with conceal Carry the very first time there was a level of anxiety. So to have a so called seasoned OC'r would be awesome to say the least.
Lets hope our Law Makers get this one right!!! Constitutional Carry is the only real Conceal Carry Bill!!!! Yet they act as though it is hollowed ground never walked on. So then tell me why Arizona, Vermont and Alaska are Constitutional Carry and I hear soon to be Wyoming.
Anyway Thanks for having such an awesome forum and def Thanks for starting a group such as this to show that we are everyday people who believe in protecting ourselves as our forefathers intended. We are not a bunch of gun toting crazy people. After all the criminals pay no attention to laws or regulations what so ever. So stop punishing those of us who follow the law. Well most of the time anyway. Ok Im guilty of doing 75 in a 65 :banana:

Wondering if there are any OC'ers in Oshkosh or that OC here??
I don't know anyone off hand in Oshkosh. There are a few in Green Bay and Appleton.

I've never OC'd off my property. (I will when I cut the grass/rake etc. Inside I do all day/night as I work from home). I was lucky enough to find Nik from Wisconsin Carry to take me out to some stores and shadow me. We haven't gone yet, but I'm really looking forward to it.

I'm a new member here but I didn't see a place to introduce myself. I've been reading the posts for a few weeks now and I finally signed up. I find all the topics very informative and I want to thank all of you for starting this forum.

Bob, feel free to come to Lizzie this Friday (the 1st) and hang out. Either that or to Starbucks in Delavan on the 3rd. Look for the posts in the sticky section for details.

Thanks Protias.

I can't do Lizzy's because I work 2nd shift. I'll try to do Starbucks this Sunday. That's a good day and time for me.

Kemo - The people are there. If you don't find someone in a few days, send me a PM. I know a few people in that area that don't spend much time here on OCDO.
