Got my Iowa Nonprofessional Permit to Carry Weapons today
#1
EASY PEASY Tongue

Walked toward the door of the office and saw a fellow outside organizing his trunk so I stopped to chat and intro myself. He turned out to be the Sheriff., We chatted about all things from Guinea Hens to chickens to the weather.

After chatting a bit I asked him about a name difference on my NRA gun class form from PA which is different than the one on my DL. He said no problem and that he would go in with me and get me my permit.

WOW! Just like Centre County in PA, this Sheriff seems to be extremely pro-citizen carry.

So far I/we love living out in the "middle of nowhere" IowaBig Grin

Where did you wind up?

My wife has family in Decatur County. When we went out to visit couple yrs ago they had pretty much convinced the wife to move to out there. Leon...population about 2,000. I picked up an PTC application but at the time they were NJ-style May Issue. When they went Shall Issue I was all set to send in my app...but the bill eliminated non-pro non-res permits..for the most part.

There are pre-ownership pics at link below. I will get some new pics up soon. Place is really empty being that we really do not own many things. We are hitting up garage sales every chance we get to add afordable necessities.

The permit was an affordable necessityBig Grin

Yes, I saw those, looks like a very neat place to make your own. Obviously not right away, but maybe soon, pics looking away from your property, or around the town. You already have one pic looking away from the house and it looks beautiful out there, even in the snow and ice.

Have fun with it. We're jealous. Cool

I do admire you, Publican. You're doing what my wife and I have dreamed of for years.

We're going to bang out this debt, learn to live on the minimum, and just go for it.
