View Full Version : Experiences Getting Permits in Iowa

February 6th, 2012, 06:13 PM
I have taken the PGI shooters safety course and worked on several professional shows.
I have a friend who has some land that would allow for 2" shells (according to NFPA 1123), for a private party (not for commerce, fireworks totally purchased by me, for a couple of friends).

I was just wondering if anyone has had experience getting a permit in Dubuque, County, as they would be my AHJ?

Do they require a PGI shooters certificate, or is a ATF type 54 good enough for DBQ County?
Do they require you to have more than home owners insurance?
Were there any fees involved?
