Which States Will Recognize Wisconsin’s Concealed Carry Permit?

by Andy on July 12, 2011

New – Check out the new reciprocity page at ConcealedWisconsin.com for and interactive map showing reciprocity.

A lot of people in Wisconsin are asking, “which states will recognize Wisconsin’s Concealed Carry Permit?”  Concealed Carry Reciprocity is an important question, especially for those who travel across the boarder often and like to carry a weapon for self defense.

Unfortunately, the list won’t be finalized until other states have a chance to digest the law and determine if it meets their requirements for reciprocity.  However, according a post on OpenCarry.org by a member of Wisconsin Carry, Inc., a staffer for Republican Senator Glenn Grothman – 20th Senate District, replied to a request for a list of “likely” states that have similar standards to Wisconsin’s new law.

The list includes:

AL, AK, AZ, AR, CO, DE, FL, GA, IA, ID, IN, KS, KY, LA, MI, MS, MO, MT, NE, NH, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WV, WY

(List is subject to change)

This preliminary list is bound to change in the future, but as it stand right now, it is a pretty good list of states.  Being that I travel our neighboring state to the west frequently – I am a bit disappointed that Minnesota isn’t on the list, but given some time they may decide to reciprocate too.

i think all states should accept the concealed carry permits or the states that do not should have to take wisconsin hunters safety course to hunt or fish in our state fair is fair if our state is insupperior to concealed carry laws then take our hunters education course to hunt or fish in our state.

Looks like a very well done site. I’m an Il. resident who has a FL CC permit and am hoping that it will be honored by Wis. The irony of this is that it will make me legal in any state boardering mine, but not my own! (yet)

Thanks John. I hope that Illinois will soon recognize your 2nd Amendment right too.

I think the ccl issued by Wi should be honored in every state that has ccl being issued. Wi ccl requirements were well thought out and being one of the last states to issue them we had a chance to learn from the other states just what they have and if there were any problems. This site is great. DOJ is doing a good job. Thank you!

I travel in all the midwest states. Any state that won’t honor my concealed carry permit, I will travel around and spend my money in states that do honor my permit and rights.

I went through a 4 hour class for conceal carry here in Wisconsin and getting a conceal carry permit for having gone through hunters safety is not right you do not learn things in hunters safety that you learn in conceal classes they should put a stop to it and make the people that have them go through conceal carry class .

Thanks for the comment. I recommend that everyone take a training class, for their own understanding, but I am against mandatory classes in general, because the government is not supposed to infringe on your right to carry.
