            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Des Moines County, John G. Linn, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and May and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Ahlers, J.  (7 pages)

            Terrance Lee Clopton appeals his convictions for possessing a firearm as a felon and carrying a concealed weapon.  He challenges the sufficiency of the evidence supporting both convictions.  OPINION HOLDS: Clopton failed to preserve error on his challenge to the sufficiency of the evidence on the concealed-weapon conviction, and we do not address it.  A witness testified Clopton was in actual possession of a handgun, which provides sufficient evidence to support the felon-in-possession conviction.
