Wisconsin recognizes resident Florida CCWs.  The restrictions are on people who posses a non resident Florida license issued before 8/1/2013.

WI does not recognize FL resident permits.

It only recognizes "Florida  license ISSUED OR RENEWED TO NON-FLORIDA RESIDENTS ON OR AFTER 08/01/2013."

Thanks for clarifying.  I read that all wrong.
Link Posted: 1/30/2021 10:42:49 PM EDT
So as a FL resident I can NOT conceal carry. But I can open carry?

You could legally open carry - except in prohibited areas - but why would you want to draw attention to yourself?  In Milwaukee, I'd think open carry would just make you a target for their seemingly large numbers of of street rats.  Just my opinion.

Isn't this "concealed carry bingo" game fun?

Interesting that the very same logic used to justify a statewide mask mandate (we need to avoid a patchwork of rules from place to place) doesn’t apply to constitutional rights....

In Florida  it has been law for long long time. You can carry in your glovebox ( whether or not locked)
A loaded gun.
Only the glove box as it is specific listed in the law.
Do not try a center console.  
You may carry ( in your hands ) a loaded firearm  that is cased in
Something made for encasing a Firearm
.it can be homemade..

Printing a Firearm is  unlawful.

I   carried in a small mens zipper hand bag.
Size of a Bible.
And my colt commander 😁

Walked away from Collier County with an apology letter from the sheriff  and a fat Check for  false arrest.
And return of my gun and 2 loaded mags. After presenting a letter of " no information "
The jail in Naples is kept very chilly.😉
I spent 7 hours  behind bars.
This was pre ccw in florida state. There was only county by county ccw back then( friends and family  plan) signed by  sheriff.
This was 1980ish.
Be safe , have fun.

I've been researching this a little further. I know for a fact that when the WI ccw reciprocity list was published back in the early days of our ccw law (which took effect on 11/1/2011) FL licenses were honored, both resident & non-res, provided you were NOT a resident of WI. I had a FL license since 2001, but had to wait for my WI license. I have relatives from FL who have a FL license, and theirs was good here on day 1 (I remember being a little pissed off about that situation, and also that we honored FL, but FL didn't honor WI). I also remember confirming that my bro-in-law from FL was able to legally carry here with his FL resident license when they visited in the summer of 2015. I'm 100% certain this was not always the way the reciprocity with FL was handled.

When did a liberal Dem become AG?

In looking through all the updates that have been posted on handgunlaw.com, they show an update posted on 8/9/19 that reads: "What Permits From Florida WI honors Updated in Permit/Licenses This State Honors Section". Over on the WI DOJ website, the reciprocity list there says it is "current" as of July 18, 2019. Apparently, that's about when it was determined that the background check done on FL residents wasn't sufficient enough to satisfy the WI law for reciprocity, and the list was modified to include FL non-resident licenses only are honored.

I'm a little confused about this "resident/non-resident" license.  I've got a WI permit and am a WI resident.  We own a home in FL where we spend the winter.  I have a FL permit and there is no indication on it as to being a "resident or non-resident" permit.  Am I correct in thinking that because we own a home here (FL), my permit is a resident one and if I didn't actually reside here, a non-resident permit would be issued and be different?  Just wondering, as I always understood that WI wouldn't honor a permit from a state that wouldn't honor a WI permit.

Resident and non resident licenses don't look any different, the only factor that determines if it's a resident or non-res license is the legal address of the license holder. If it's a FL address on the license, its a resident license. If the address of licensee is outside of FL it's a non resident license.

If your legal address is a WI address, then that's what should be on your FL license. Because it's a WI address, that makes it a license issued to a "non-resident" of FL. It's that simple.

WI's reciprocity is based on background checks that are performed on applicants before a license is issued. It's not a "you honor ours, we'll honor yours" system. WI requires that both a statewide check and a NICS check be performed before a license is issued. Any state that does both is honored by WI. FL and VA only do NICS checks on non resident applicants, therefore WI only honors those non resident licenses.

Florida permits don't have an address on them.

What? Mine did. My last FL license is currently "expired", since 9/18. I got a Utah instead, much easier/cheaper renewal, and almost identical reciprocity country wide. I haven't been in FL in decades, and don't plan to, so that was the only state I lost.

But I've had 3 consecutive FL licenses (including the one signed by "Charles Bronson"*) dating back to 2001. Two were 5 years each, and the third was for 7 years... 17 total years, 2001-2018. All 3 had my WI address on them. I still have all 3 in one of my gun safes.

*the Sec of State of FL in late 2000s, whose signature is on the license, was named Charles Bronson.

Mine was issued in 2017 - no address.  Now Nikki Fried, an anti-gun, liberal attorney, is the Dept. of Ag. Commissioner.  She's spent the last 2 years stepping all over herself, making it quite apparent she hasn't a clue, so hopefully any attempt by her to screw with the permit program will be stifled.

Huh.....Mine is 2016, and HAS my address. Nothing denoting res/non-res.

There's a picture of a sample FL ccw license at this link, and there is NOT an address on it.
