    i live in iowa. i called to see if i could get a form for a permit mailed to me. but they said no. then i found out they are open the exact hours that normal law abiding citizens as myself work.... (9-4:30 m-f and they stop taking permits at 4:20; i work 8:30- 5 every day)

    i dont mind getting a permit, but a photocopy of my ID and 11 dollars should be enough for a permit to buy a gun.

    Does anyone know if I can mail it in?

    Im in polk county, Iowa.


    i was thinking i would print it off and send them a check

    Oh, and at the sheriff's dept. here, they keep their applications for pistol permits on a clipboard in the lobby, so even if you go in after hours, you could still at least pick one up.

    Thank God my state finally repealed that dumb law. For one of the few times, we had a gun law repealed. Similar situation though. Had to go to the sheriff's dept during business hours and fill out the form and give them $10. I feel your pain.

    All has to be done in person here, handgun office hours are something like 10am-3pm.

    Gun people are so weird. While you all seem to recogize the effect something like this has on your ability to exercise your 2nd amendment rights, I've also had people on very pro gun forums tell me I'm being ridiculous for being upset that people have to go down to their local sheriff's office during business hours to get a carry permit. I'm glad you all seem a little more genuine with your support for the 2nd.
