This is a link to a summary of the Iowa law: Iowa Concealed Carry Permit Information

You may NOT carry a firearm inside city limits- open of concealed, without a permit.

If you have a concealed carry permit, you CAN carry in a bar. You cannot drink while carrying, nor be under the influence of a controlled substance.

You CAN drink while carrying in a bar in Iowa, if you are intoxicated (0.08) then your permit is automatically voided. Personally, I don't think alcohol and gunpowder should EVER be mixed.

EDIT you can check out the Iowa statutes at iowacarry.org

I don't go to bars myself. Too much drama and the beer costs too much. On the rare occasion that I drink, I get the beer at walmart or the liquor store that I can see from my front door, and I drink it at home with the one guy I drink with.

Can't view videos on my phone lol. But I wasn't trying to be funny, the only guy I drink with is my best friend from high school, we've known each other for about ten years now and I know how he's gonna act.

I'd knock back a few with my brother but he's stationed out there at el paso.
