    Talking Va one handgun a month, not for CHP holder

    Some of you may already know this, but in VA, if you have a CWP, you are not held to the one handgun a month, I found that out while picking up my G21 coming back from Glock.

    After looking on the State Police site, It's right there.

    1 a month exceptions

    Yep! It's good to have that kind of leeway.

    Always good to have a class system in place. Certain classes exempted from some things, other classes exempted from others.

    Good old Doug Wilder. The gun of the month govenor.

    All I can say is thank God for TEXAS. Here in Texas there are no limits to how many guns a person can purchase with or without a CCW permit. As long as you pass a background check you can purchase as many as your wallet allows. I talked to a local ATF agent once and he said, "Son, this is Texas you could buy a hundred at a time if you wanted to. As long as you pass the background check." I've seen collectors and other leave gun shops with an arm load full of arms. Now I'm not sure about crime statistics here in the area but I think it's pretty neat for law abiding citizens to have the option to purchase as many weapons as they'd like.

    limits for one, is no different than limits for ALL. They have no right telling one group of citizens they can buy more than 1 a month, but others cannot. This is such a bad law it's not even funny.

    what's next... people with a "free speech permit" that cost them $200 can say what they want all month.. but others can only speak during the daytime hours?

    Just a cotton pickin minute here! This is not establishing a class system. It used to be that everyone in VA was subject to the OGAM (One Gun A Month) law (thanks to some freedom hating legislators and a RAT governor who is currently the gun hating mayor of Richmond). We tried to get it rescinded, but the best we could get was to have them exempt CHP holders from the OGAM law. We have been very successful at chipping away at the gun control infrastructure that used to have such a hold on Virginians. We are shall issue, open carry legal, and fully pre-empted (can you say those last two about Texas?) . Give us some time and we'll get rid of the rest of these idiotic laws like OGAM and our stupid "restaurant ban"

    not intending to discredit the hard work of people to change the laws.

    the class system, was set up by the govt. not you or any other gun owner.

    When I was a VA resident I thought that it meant I had to buy one gun a month. That's what my local gun dealer told me.

    I tried my best but couldn't keep up for the entire time. Law enforcement was always exempted. Also if one goes to their local VSP (Virginia State Police) barracks you can request and get issued a multiple handgun purchase form. You just have to go through their process. In Leesburg it took about 5 days when I did it a few years back. After that you get your own file with the VSP.

    I can't complain much about VA. I can buy as many handguns as I want here in MO, but have to spend the time (about 100 minutes round trip), gas money and fees ($10) to go get a permit to acquire for each one. Just so that the sheriff could deny blacks and any other "undesirables" the ability to buy handguns back in the day. Doing the math on all the costs it added $96 to my most recent aquisition of 3 handguns.

    No limit in Colorado. I only once bought pistols in consecutive months anyway, so even then I was barely up to the Virginia maximum.
