    NC resident carrying in Virginia

    I am a NC resident and NC ccw holder. I tried googling this...

    The family and I plan on attending Pirate-Fest in Hampton VA. NC and VA have reciprocity. Anything I need to be aware of? Any surprise laws? I see no carrying in any place that serves alcohol, but we have kids so not planning on that anyway. I may just leave my CCW home to avoid any issues.

    The law changed. You can carry concealed in places that serve alcohol.
    Don't know about any other restrictions. Just use common sense and stay concealed. Check Handgunlaw.com.

    You are fine. Effective July 1, VA changed the law and you can carry concealed in a place that serves alcohol, but you cannot drink. You can open carry in VA as well. No restrictions on places that charge admission or public gatherings like NC.

    One noteworthy difference is in VA you do not have to notify an LEO that you are carrying. It's my understanding this differs from NC where disclosure is mandatory.

    Check out the Virginia State Police website for gun laws.

    State laws supercede local laws on carrying firearms...so no local yokel laws on carrying (although some places do try)....

    +1 on the 1 July law change regarding carrying in places that serve alcohol (there are no "bars" per se). It has always been in VA you could not carry concealed in restaurants that serve alcohol--you could ALWAYS open carry. Now the law says you can conceal carry, but can't drink...but the law is silent on open carrying and drinking....how funny is that?

    Excellent info. The laws I found I guess were outdated. Appreciate the info!
