    traveling from WI

    I will be vacationing in Iowa this spring. I currently live WI and hold a valid WI CCL.
    Can someone please share a link to the pertinent laws on carry in Iowa by an out of state CCL holder?

    Thanks.

    Here you go. Click on the first two non-advertisement links there.

    Alternately, there's more good info at http://iowafc.org/permits/

    The executive summary is:
    - do not carry in a school or school grounds, prison, federal building, casino, nor state capitol. Ignore signs everywhere else, they don't matter.
    - don't carry while intoxicated
    - no duty to notify
    - no duty to conceal
    - duty to retreat when it will not increase the risk to self/other

    I would suggest reading here: http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/iowa.pdf

    Apparently Iowa seems to have preemption like WI, but unlike WI, the Iowa state AG says local municipalities may restrict. So, if City Property/Parks are posted, don't carry there, including the "State Fairgrounds" and all University Property.

    Motor Homes: When a motor home is used as a residence (Parked) or place of business (Parked), no permit isrequired. When it is being used as transportation the firearm must be stored (unloaded and encased).
