    BTW, VERY COOL that recognition of all other states' permits is included in the IA bill. I would gladly have gotten an IA permit, but no need.

    They'll probably deny you until the law goes into effect. They rarely issue non-resident permits.

    IA is 50' or 75' depending on which target you choose...B-3 or B-13. In either case I think those distances are a bit far...

    But...now I don't have to worry about that

    Both houses of the Iowa legislature have overwhelming approved a bill, which the governor is expected to sign, making Iowa a "shall issue" state as of January 1, 2011. (As we all know, Iowa had remained strangely retrograde in its policy on CCW.) The language in the bill also states
    that Iowa will grant reciprocity to all other states. So starting next year, if you have a CCW permit in any state, you're good in Iowa. Apparently, your permit doesn't have to be resident, either, so a Maryland or New Jersey resident with a Florida or Utah permit will be able to carry in Iowa. (Iowa residents will need an Iowa permit, though.)

    Not sure about what Iowa will do about non-resident permits, but for most of us, that won't matter
    .
    Does anyone know the REAL effective date of this?? NEXT YEAR??? 9 Months later??? Sure would appreciate any factual information on the effective date.

    Thanks for any info.

    The very post that you have quoted says "As of January 1, 2011..."

    And here is verification from the NRA. (Last bullet point in the article.)
