I want to travel by pickup from my house to Michigan via Wisconsin. I want to target shoot on property that is in the family. Questons:
1) no extended cab--can I put a ban-era AR and a preban Polytech AK behind the seat?
2)Would I even be allowed by law to transport to and from through these states for this purpose?
Or should I just leave my babies at home?
Case them for sure.
But I don't know about any of the real legalities.
In Wisconsin you are good if they are unloaded and cased, they don't even have to be locked. I don't know anything about Michigan.
Here you go:

cased and unloaded is the rule for WI. i wouldn't worry at all about bringing your stuff here to shoot. machine guns are legal here..i go blasting out at a gravel pit all the time and i've never been hassled before. as long as your stuff is legal, don't worry about it.
