Hi,
First of I'd like to thank the board for being do helpful in getting me started in shooting. I think I would have ended up with a 10/22 if it weren't for this board among others. With that said I have another Iowa question. In Iowa if you have a Pistol permit that is manditory here, it allows you to bypass the backround check at shops, so my question is can you order a gun online without going throght an FFL with a valid Iowa weapons permit?

 An Iowa permit to purchase pistols or revolvers involves a background check when you apply. When you get your permit you may purchase handguns and long guns in state and the dealer does not have to do a background check for each purchase. You still have to go through an FFL if you order a firearm. The person(dealer) that you order from would have to ship it to your co-operating FFL for you to pick up there. Hope this helps a little.

Ditto siam.
The annual permit to purchase pistols is just that. Unless you want an old Mosin or a kit, you must go through an FFL.
By the way, did you buy an AR ?

Saim,
You betcha, because of my new job installing suround sound systems and car stero's after school I am now the pround owner of a Bushmaster 20" XM-15 with AK brake, a Bushy M-17s and a Calico Liberty 100. If you can't tell I'm realy getting into this. I think my next big purchase (after I get a new computer) is going to be a Beta C-mag for the AR
