It is not difficult to purchase a gun in Wisconsin. There are a few things you will need to do to make sure the process goes smoothly.
Consult with a gun retailer or firearms dealer in Wisconsin to inquire about purchasing a gun. You will need to fill out at least two forms when buying a gun from a dealer:
- A firearms transaction record, or Form 4473.
- A worksheet on responsible firearm ownership You may also be asked to provide photo identification, such as a driver’s license.
Assuming you pass the background check (more on that later), you will then pay for the gun and take it home with you. If you are purchasing a long gun (rifle or shotgun), you will need to have it registered with the state within five days of taking possession.
You do not need a license to own a gun in Wisconsin, but you must be at least 18 years old to purchase one. There is no waiting period to purchase a gun in Wisconsin.
You will, however, need to pass a background check before you can purchase a gun from a dealer. The FBI will conduct the background check, which will include a review of your criminal history and mental health records. You will not need to pass a background check if you are purchasing a gun from a private seller. However, it is still illegal to sell a gun to someone who is not allowed to possess one.
It is also important to note that there are some restrictions on who can own a gun in Wisconsin:
- You cannot own a gun if you have been convicted of a felony or certain misdemeanors, or if you have been adjudicated mentally ill.
- You also cannot purchase a gun if you are under the age of 21.
If you have any questions about whether you are eligible to purchase a gun in Wisconsin, you should consult with a gun retailer or firearms dealer. You can also find more information on the Wisconsin Department of Justice website.

First, you need to decide what type of gun you want. There are many different types of guns available on the market, so it is important to do your research before making a purchase. Once you have decided on the type of gun you want, you need to find a reputable dealer. You can find a list of dealers in your area by visiting the website of the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Once you have found a Dealer, you will need to fill out an application for a background check. The dealer will then run your information through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). If you pass the background check, you will be able to purchase the gun.
You will also need to purchase a Pistol Permit from the Wisconsin Department of Justice. You can find more information about Pistol Permits on their website.
