    I'm moving to Iowa

    So I just got a job offer for station manager for my airline in Dubuque, IA. So to the cornfields I go

    Now I just gotta find out which state to live in, as Dubuque is right by IL, IA, and WI. Which state should I move to?

    I'd check out each area, look at what your money can buy, and what your commute would be like.

    Iowa is better than Illinois by far. Especially if you're into guns.

    Iowa and Wisconsin is a wash. I like them both.

    One thing to check on is taxes,, state income, sales tax, property tax..

    My son lives in WA and it chaps my ass when he tells me about taxes there compared to Kansas.

    Move to the state that's closest to your workplace, to reduce your commute time and gasoline consumption.

    I don't know if it even applies to you (CCW or not) but WI does NOT have allow non-leo's to carry concealed and I don't believe Illinois does either.

    You are correct sir.

    In Ilinoise, you also have to have a FOID card to purhcase ammo, firearms and even OWN a friggin firearm. How stupid is that.


    Over by Dubuque, you should be able to get a CCW pretty easliy. The counties that I live in and work in, not so much.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    The Wisconsin Supreme court a year or two back overturned a conviction for carrying concealed saying the law was unconstitutional. I also sent an email the WAG when I saw he wrote a brief asking the US Supreme Court to not side with Washington DC. THERE IS HOPE YET!!!

    There's a lot of us out there. My state is shall issue for CCW's and we have negligible problems with them. I hope the USSC really settles the issue once and for all on the side of the 2nd.

    You sure? I looked at some Iowa carry forum, and it listed Dubuque county as almost impossible to get one

    That is a possiblity. I sometimes get my gun friendly areas mixed up in my state.

    Was it www.iowacarry.org if so, that is a good site. They are trying to make Iowa a shall issue state.

    Yes indeed it was. Here's the map. As you can see, Dubuque county is red, while Jackson county just to the south is green...sigh...
