Good people to deal with in Iowa
I figure I'd start a thread for Iowa HK enthusiasts to list dealers, FFLs, and others in the industry that are good people to work with.
I will start out the list by naming C.A.P.S. Iowa, (www.capsiowa.com), which is an approved training course for getting your Concealed Carry Permit in Polk, Dallas, and some other surrounding counties. Marlo, the instructor, is a retired Iowa State Patrol Captain, a cowboy shooter, and a heck of a nice guy. If you're looking to get you CCW license and live in the greater Des Moines area, I'd recommend him.
Also, if you're looking for ammo, check out Frontier Outfitting in Urbandale, IA. They are nice guys who really know their stuff. They are (or will be, as of early April 2008) Iowa's largest supplier of ammunition of all makes and calibers, including reloading supplies. Real good prices too. They beat Scheels' price on Hornady TAP defensive rounds in .40s&w by over $7 for a box of 20 rounds. Plus, you can feel good knowing you shopped locally.
That's it from me for now, but please list your favorite retailers, ranges, stores, etc. for all of us Iowans to benefit from!
