            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, John D. Ackerman, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Greer, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  (10 pages)

            Mark Everett appeals his convictions for first-degree robbery and being a felon in possession of a firearm.  He argues the robbery verdict was against the weight of the evidence, trial counsel was ineffective in failing to object to opinion and vouching testimony, and there was insufficient evidence to support the felon in possession conviction.  OPINION HOLDS: The credible evidence did not preponderate heavily against the first-degree robbery verdict, counsel was not ineffective as alleged, and there is substantial evidence supporting the felon-in-possession conviction.  We therefore affirm.
