I was researching Iowa law since I am about to get my permit to carry from MN and wanted to be sure I understood what I can do as far as transporting my weapon when traveling through Iowa. I found this and this would seem to say that even if my pistol was locked in a case per 926a my magazine would need to be unloaded as well, unless 926a fulfills the requirement of "except as permitted by law". Thanks for any assistance you can give.
