Default Got my ticket

My wife is out of town so I decided to go to take the CCW class on Thursday nite. (The arm injury delayed me earlier in the year)

Pretty interesting discussion regarding the legalities of carrying. No shooting is required in Iowa, but the instructor did have a laser training gun that was kind of fun to play with. After seeing how one of the guys in the class handled the training gun, I kind of wish Iowa would require a test of shooting proficiency. Scar-ry...

For anyone in eastern Iowa looking to take the class, I'd recommend the class I attended... http://www.gunsafetygroup.com/

So I went down the the Sheriff's office Friday morning and they processed my permit while I waited. Probably took all of 15 minutes. All told, the Iowa process from training to card in hand took probably 4 hours.

That's the best I ever heard of, time wise.

It took four weeks, here in Florida, even

going to the county seat, and processing the

application directly through their computerized system.

I'm guessing the background check down here was either more thorough,

or done before the permit is issued, rather than as a follow-up.

Congratulations, be safe, and carry often.

Congrats Scott. That was an awesome turnaround for your license.
I thought it was quick when I got my AZ CCW. By mail, total of 6 days.
Be safe.
