Village of West Milwaukee - On January, Badger Guns Inc. no longer could sell guns at 2339 S. 43rd St. The U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) revoked the gun selling license for violating the Gun Control Act. Badger Guns was previously operated by Adam Allan.
The first of the month, it exchanged ownership to Michael Allan, who acquired the occupancy permit from West Milwaukee on October 21, to operate the Brew City Shooter's Supply, Inc. at the same location. He hasn't yet applied for a gun dealing license with the ATF.
Currently, Brew City Shooter's Supply has the shooting range opened, sells ammo, weapons related supplies and a gun repair shop. The Badger Gun Inc. in conjunction with Concealed Carry LLC. offer a Conceal Carry in Wisconsin (CCW) handgun training course at the location, according to the Concealed Carry LLC. certificate of completion.
The four hour Wisconsin Department of Justice (WIDOJ) handgun training course offered by Concealed Carry LLC., includes weapons training on loading and unloading a revolver and pistol semi-automatic handguns, as well as live target range shooting, which is one of the few courses being offered in the Milwaukee area.
The course costs only $95 and follows the WIDOJ guidelines and required training to apply for a CCW permit with the state.
The CCW course is provided by both certified NRA instructor Walter J. Allan and Allen B. Ripple, a Wisconsin State Firearms certified instructor.
During last Saturday's noon course, a diverse group of people took the training, composed of 6 Blacks, 1 White and 8 Hispanics. The diversity of those taking the course shows that many residents in the area are taking advantage of the CCW training at the Brew City Shooter's location.
Most other CCW training sessions throughout the state don't offer the shooting range aspect of it, because it is not required by state law or the WIDOJ.
The current waiting period to be issued a CCW permit by the WIDOJ is more than 40 days due to the large volume of those applying for the CCW license. The CCW license is recognized and valid in 26 states.
