Hello, I'm new to open carry and was wondering if I'm allowed to use a skateboard or longboard while having my handgun holstered and visible? Thank you.
If you're going to carry a firearm I strongly suggest learning the regulations surrounding it. Start with www.tinyurl.com/OpenCarry-WI Also be sure to take a training class to learn some of the regulations regarding use of force and defending yourself.

Well, if you are old enough to carry you are too old to roll around on a skateboard. I learned that lesson the very hard way. And it took several lessons to convince me. But a busted backside bone put me around the bend on it.

Yes. You're carrying openly.
Doesn't matter if you're on foot, a bicycle, motorcycle, roller skates, skateboard, etc.
Don't need a CCL unless you're OC on public property within 1000' of the edge of a school property.

Learn the laws (some of which you had to certify you'd read & understood when you sent in for your CCL).
You could take a free course through Wisconsin Carry, also join the membership & have a group that's got your back.
Find the WI Carry Facebook page, join, and read the documents for more useful info.

As for your run-in with the HC cops, detailed in your other thread, definitely contact Nik Clark (president of WI Carry)!!!
Email him now, today (either through the website, or Nik @ wisconsincarry . org), and call in to his radio show tonight. It starts at 8pm.
