Question: If I have permits in 2 other states and have taken the required course in each of those states and I also have all the military background and training on handguns, do I still need to attend a course in Iowa prior to obtaining a CCW there? I'm moving to the Davenport area in September due to my upcoming assignment to Rock Island Arsenal, IL. I refuse to live in Illinois, obviously. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
