i got my iowa ccw permit today!! ive been waiting so long since down here its still not shall issue, you have to justify. i thought i wouldnt qualify since i have no specific threat against my person, but finally i applied saying that i believe in the right to bear arms and i want to be able to do so for personal defense, in particular since i spend a lot of time on the road. much to my surprise it was no problem at all. took a class that ive already taken before in another state, went to qualify with my p3at this morning and now im sitting here with a permit in my hand and a blister on my trigger finger knuckle ;D 50 shots of wwb in 10 minutes, i did goof up and ended up with 98% but other than that no problems at all. when my qp3at was new it would sometimes be a bit picky with wwb when it started to get dirty but now that its broken in it doesnt seem to be a problem at all anymore. one thing though: i accidentally dry-fired it once. a single occurance like that isnt gonna hurt it is it?
