    Im possibly going to a outdoor show next month thats offering a 3hour conceald carry class..They give you a lecture and paperwork, everything to get your license, when your done all you have to do is drop the stuff in the mail and pay a small fee for the state of iowa to send you out the certificate, since the show cant process those fees. Its $73 for the class, or $85 total and that grants you access to the rest of the show. They are vaild in over 30 states, but not my home state. Does it sound worth it? This show is also like a 3 hour ride from my house each way

    Its up to you whether you want whats owed to you (for a small fee) or not. You as an American deserve the right to carry a weapon concealed during these turbulent times. But I dont think its worth it if you don't live there. Get your own states first then if you see use for other states go take the class and get it. BTW gun stores around here sell a gun and comes with a free concealed carry license class. To me $85 plus 6 hours of gas for the class that doesn't give you your license where you live seems pricey.

    IIRC NJ is like NY - a CC is pretty much impossible to get.

    It would depend on how often you travel outside of your state to a state that is carry friendly and covered by this Iowa permit. Most of the states that do not support concealed carry are in the northeast.

    Have you looked into the Florida and Utah non-resident permits?

    A non-resident of Iowa cannot get an non-professional permit.
    A non-resident can apply for a professional permit, provided their job requires carrying a weapon.

    I agree with SManZ; look into a non-resident Utah permit.

    if you have a hunters education certificate from your state or the nra or a handgun safety course etc. etc. you can request a packet from florida's dept of ag and submit your finger prints and a copy of the training to florida along with 117$ and you will receive a Florida CCW iirc they have reciprocity with about 34 other states

    i just sent off for my florida permit so i can get reciprocity with Virginia and Delaware in case i drive to philly this year

    this permit is good for 30 plus states, I think its closer to 40 actually. NJ I cant get a CC for the hell of it, you need a vaild reason. I travel out of state now and then, but it would be nice to know I have it if I need it. Even if I cant carry in my own state, I figured it would be good to have it.

    If you want to see what states honor other CCW permits, go to www.handgunlaw.us
    Then click on "Create License Map"

    You can quickly see who will honor your permit.

    DEFINATELY get yourself familiar with your local conceal carry laws.

    I wouldn't apply for anything unless its local or you have an FULL understanding of the system (so to speak).

    Here in PA, you can go to the courthouse...have your CC license in a matter of 10 minutes (depending on how many people are in line ahead of you).
    This is a neat site also.
