    Hello from Iraq!

    Howdy, everyone.

    I am currently living and working in Iraq as a military contractor. 27 year Army veteran. I am told I have a loving wife and two gorgeous teenaged daughters living in Iowa, but have been far from home for most of the last 9 years.

    As an Iowa resident of a "no-issue" county, it looks like I'll be able to legally carry in the US for the first time in my life (the irony is that I have legally carried in a bunch of normally gun-unfriendly countries my entire career) and want to learn as much as I can before I apply.

    Look forward to learning lots.
