Firearms Safety In Iowa

Carrying and owning a firearm in Iowa gives you the ability to not only protect yourself, but also others, however it comes with great responsibilities. Being competent and secure in your abilities to carry your firearm is required for success. Owning a firearm in and of itself does not make you or your family safe.

Having the proper firearms training and the ability to make the correct decisions is all part of your Iowa permit to carry class experience.

Your Iowa Permit To Carry Class Firearms Training

Your Iowa permit to carry class will focus on safe handling and operation of your firearms and the rules and regulations of firearms ownership in Iowa, and may include a brief legal review of the use of your firearm in a personal defense situation.

Courses are designed not only for the novice gun owner, but also those whom wish to expand their firearms skills. Be sure that any course you take meets or exceeds the requirements as required by the State of Iowa.

Locating a course that has a curriculum that covers all areas and all types of firearms training can be an advantage to one that would primarily focus on just one specific type of training.
