There are currently two bills going through the legislature which would be beneficial for some of our shooting programs. House file 527 passed on a 75-24 vote a couple of weeks ago and Senate file 425 is awaiting debate in the Senate but it is stalled.

These bills are very similar and would change some of the firearms regulations in Iowa for the better. The big one for us is removing the age restriction on handguns for persons under 21. Current Iowa law prohibits anyone under the age of 14 from handling handguns. Not even with parental supervision.

One provision that is in both bills would eliminate this and then the youngsters who are 12 and 13 years of age could participate in organized shooting competitions like the Scholastic Pistol Program.

Here is a link to the Iowa Firearms Coalition web site which gives full explanations of what is going on. From there you can...

Are you looking for a new shooting challenge?

Have you ever thought about competitive shooting, but didn’t know where to start?

The Ankeny Ikes Practical Shooters is here to help. We are holding a Competitive Shooting 101 clinic on May 16, 2015 from 9 am to 1 pm.

This clinic will give you a chance to try each one of them in a controlled environment focused entirely on the beginning competitive shooter.

Space is limited to 32 participants. To sign up for the clinic, email Scott Arnburg at ShootingSports@ankenyIkes.org.
