    Since permits are issued by the Sheriff in the county one resides in I suggest your buddy contact the sheriff's office.

    Depends upon your state laws, and if it was felony or not. Here, not if you've had 2 misdeamors for it and it hasn't been at least 5 yrs... and if a felony ... NO.

    Re: can you get a conceal permit if you have had a owi?

    I have a permit so the answer is yes.

    Redemption is what it is. More than one strike, however, may lead to less than desirable results.

    Check: OWI Law in Iowa @ legis.iowa.gov.

    Unless the statutes have recently changed (since the 2007 writing of that guide), it looks like a first offense for IA OWI is a "serious misdemeanor" punishable by up to 1yr in jail. (IA Code 321J.2)

    And according to the IA CHL application form, the questions regarding prior convictions/adjudications specifically is looking for evidence of either pending or prior felonies or aggravated misdemeanors in which the penalty that could have been applied exceeded 1yr:

    1. Do you have charges pending in any state for a felony, or any other crime for which the court could sentence you to imprisonment for more than one year?

    2. Have you ever been convicted in any court of a felony, or any other crime involving a firearm or explosives for which the court could have sentenced you to imprisonment for more than one year, even if you received a shorter sentence including probation?

    3. Have you been convicted in any court within the previous three years of a serious or aggravated misdemeanor defined in Iowa Code Ch. 708 not involving a firearm or explosives for which the court could have imprisoned you for more than one year, even if you received a shorter sentence including probation?
    On the face of it, it looks like the "serious misdemeanor" of a OWI wouldn't meet the restriction that the CHL application has on pending/prior felonies or aggravated misdemeanors. The county sheriff should be able to answer the question.

    Was it also his only time? The OP seems to indicate that it may not have been. If there have been multiple OWIs, then I would recommend he get his drinking under control first then worry about a CCW.
