Well, I checked with my County Sheriff and Iowa Code is written in such a way that they must accept on-line courses as well. I took the course from American Firearms Training and got my certificate. We'll see if the Sheriff accepts my application this week. Stay tuned!
I take it by your post that your state does not require any proof of safe gun handling or proficiency in being able to hit a target.
