    Talking CCW renewal arrived. 7 year wait

    I just received my CCW renewal in the mail. Took 7 years to receive it. Old sheriff hated to issue CCW permits. Would refuse for any possible reason. "Theres a new Sheriff in town" and he is much more reasonable. Our county in Iowa was a red county when it came to issuance of CCW. Now it is a green county like all of them should be. By the way, our old sheriff had to resign after admitting to sexual harassment charges. This is the guy Iowa trusted to decide whom shall carry and protect them and theirs? At least we now have a Sheriff with integrity and honor in charge. Now we just need to fight to make Iowa a shall issue state, not a may issue. Now for a Cabelas run , I don't do wally world , but I do nachos, often!

    Your permit is county issued not state issued like my state? Sounds like a bunch of good ol' boy politics in the previous administration. Congrats on getting your permit!

    Wow, congrats! And I swear I will NEVER complain about a measly 6 months wait for mine again!

    The county sheriff in Iowa has full discretion of whom he will issue a CCW to. It is valid state wide, all counties, but issued for the state by the county sheriff. Some counties if you pass the BG check, your issued. Others if you pass the BG check, your denied because the sheriff doesn't like non-LEO's carrying weapons. Messed up I know, but better than WI and IL Small consolation don't you know.

    In my State they are issued by the City or County Police Agency. Luckily, they are required to issue it unless you are not eligible.

    Good 4 you, I guess its a blessing living in a Shall-Issue state. I received mine within 10 days after submitting the paperwork. And all by snail-mail too. I did not realize the type of crap people have to go through to get a CCW in a may-issue state. I really can't wait when our CCW will be recognized federally like a drivers license.


    Thats our next step

    Congratulations. It is plain nuts to have to wait seven years to be able to protect yourself. There are many things about Va that I don't care for, but it only took fifteen days to get my permit.

    So how long is it good for? Maybe you should start your next renewal now.
    Thanks,
