In Iowa no less., i am somewhat surprised by this. I always heard that Iowa was a big hunting state and i would think that they would support a shooting club. Now Northwestern in chi-town that would not surprise me at all. ATF yeah you will get different answers depending how and who you talk too., there was a time when they were on the honest gun owners side, im not so sure anymore. Seen them screw up way to many times in the last 10 yrs or so.,the last being the fast&furious screwup and then the FBI has to come in a take care of the last and greatest mess the created. I think your college is really looking for a loophole though,they just see it as a major headache for them. But in corn country im sure surprised.
