Wisconsin Firearm Safe Storage Facilities

An even safer way to keep firearms at a distance is by storing your firearms with your local firearm retailer, gun smith or range.

The locations in purple on the map below provide firearm storage at no or minimal cost. Call them in advance for costs, restrictions, or any other information before going in-person to the store and double check whether the facility is providing the gun storage service prior to referring someone in crisis to a firearm store.

Instructions for anyone using the storage map:

The firearm facilities noted on the map are voluntarily providing this service and can refuse to provide storage for anyone.  Be sure that you have the firearm(s) unloaded, when you take them in.
