How To Choose Shooting Accessories In Iowa
In choosing the right target shooting gloves in Iowa it is an important first step in becoming a competitive shooter. Although shooting gloves are usually used by competitive shooters they are also excellent for anyone shooting on a regular basis or large number of rounds. The proper fitting shooting glove that you choose can directly influence the scores you attain. Some things to consider while choosing your first pair of shooting gloves, the first is to choose between open and closed finder gloves. We prefer the open trigger finger design of shooting glove as it split the difference between the full finger shooting gloves and the all open finger shooting gloves. The trigger finger is the one open finger on these gloves, and the remaining 4 fingers are closed. This allows the shooter to feel the pressure on the trigger, while offering protection to the remaining fingers and thumb.
As part of any shooters list of shooting accessories in Iowa we recommend at a minimum; Shooting glasses, a spotting scope, shooting gloves, a multi-tool, a shooting bag, ear protection, a small first aid kit, target tape, gun cleaning supplies, and hand sanitizer, and a small hand towel.

The Iowa State Constitution States: Iowa has no State Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. However, the Iowa Constitution does guarantee certain inalienable rights—among which are “defending life” and “protecting property.”
On January 1, 2011, Iowa became a "shall issue" state for a permit to carry weapons on one's person. Applicants must successfully complete an approved training course. Iowa will honor any valid permit issued by any other state. Citizens do not have to be a resident of the state from which the permit was issued. However, an Iowa resident may only carry a firearm on his or her person with an Iowa-issued permit. A training course is required. If citizens have an Iowa permit to carry weapons, they do not need a permit to acquire pistols when purchasing a handgun. The permit is valid for 5 years before it must be renewed.
For an Iowa CCW Permit; Applications must be filed in person with the sheriff of the county of residence. There are exceptions for applications for nonresident professional permits and applications for professional permits for a state employee who needs to go armed to work, which are filed with the Iowa Department of Public Safety. The permit is valid for five years. Applicants must be 21 years old for a nonprofessional permit and 18 for a professional permit.
From an Iowa Democrat: State Rep. Dan Muhlbauer (D-Manilla) has caught a lot of flak over recent comments attributed to him in Carroll’s Daily Times Herald. Muhlbauer was quoted advocating for a statewide ban on semi-automatic and “big guns”, making “radical changes” on gun laws and having government “start taking them” from private citizens.
When Iowa's law on gun permits changed in 2011, it became a lot easier to legally own a firearm, according to Black Hawk County Sheriff Tony Thompson, even if the applicant has issues like mental illness or lack of proper training. That's when Iowa became a "shall-issue" state, meaning the discretion to deny a gun permit is greatly restricted. "One of the most dramatic things that impacted us was the ability to research mental health," he said.

In Tipton Iowa new gun control proposals have stirred intense debate the Cedar County Sheriff stood up for gun rights at a standing-room only forum in the basement of the Cedar County Courthouse .Sheriff Warren Wethington asked the democrats to host a forum on the topic he feels passionate about: gun control. "This is my attempt to reach across the aisle,” Sheriff Wethington said. "Any further infringement in gun laws is only going to hurt good people, and I'm not going to be a part of it,” he added. The sheriff shared his republican beliefs saying there are misconceptions about the proposed gun legislation. He shined the spot light on guns county residents own that could become part of the ban.
Sheriff Wethington also stated; “I’m the only sheriff in the state of Iowa that said I’m not going to assist the federal government in any federal gun laws,” The state has at least one Sheriff with a backbone and is willing to stand up for the 2nd amendment and the state of Iowa’s citizens gun rights. The other Sheriff’s of the state need to take notice…
For years, radical leftist zealot and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been on a rampage to dictate how you get to live your life. Whether it be banning soft drinks over 16oz, banning Styrofoam cups, forcing retailers to keep their tobacco products hidden from public sight, or limiting how much salt you can have on your food in restaurants – the elitist goals of Mayor Bloomberg know no limits. Gun owners will recognize the name of Mayor Bloomberg at once as he’s become perhaps the most public face to the most aggressive attempt to clamp down on our gun rights in a generation.
And while Mayor Bloomberg’s tyrannical fist may seem far away from gun owners in Iowa, it’s a lot closer than you think. While some anti-gunners couch their words and their agenda carefully and don’t reveal it fully, Mayor Bloomberg is very clear on his radical agendas. You see, Bloomberg’s ideas are starting to directly impact your gun rights in Iowa now too as Iowa mayors from Des Moines to Fairfield, and Dubuque to Cedar Falls are joining up with his organization.
