    I have to admit that I was surprised to hear Iowa wasn't a shall issue state.

    I'll be rooting for you.

    Hope you get it done.

    Also hope you push Iowa on reciprocity with other states.

    The way the bill reads now, as passed by the Senate (and hopefully by the House on Monday or Tuesday), Iowa will have reciprocity with other states. If I remember correctly, I think may even mean all other states that issue permits to carry to their residents. Note those out of state permits for out of state visitors will not be permit's to buy in Iowa though.

    Correct...when it passes the house IA will honor the permits/licenses from ALL other states. No mention is made as to it requiring Resident permits only. However, IA residents must have IA permits.

    NEW SECTION. 724.11A Recognition.
    3 26 A valid permit or license issued by another state to
    3 27 any nonresident of this state shall be considered to
    3 28 be a valid permit or license to carry weapons issued
    3 29 pursuant to this chapter, except that such permit or
    3 30 license shall not be considered to be a substitute for
    3 31 an annual permit to acquire pistols or revolvers issued
    3 32 pursuant to section 724.15.>

    Iowa has always been a conundrum to me. It has all the makings of being a gun friendly state, but yet it's not. I go there on a very infrequent basis (actually on my way to Lansing, IA as I type this) and would love for my Tennessee permit to be valid there.

    Nice wide open spaces make for a very relaxing drive on I-80. Well, until you get to, and through, Des Moines that is.

    Hope this works out for those of you in Iowa!
