(Note:I am under 21,and DONOT have my CCW license yet,nor own a handgun yet.) If I understand correctly: There are parts in VA that you HAVE to carry concealed if you are carrying,and parts in VA that you must have open carry. Places that serve alcohol on premises you had to have your gun in plain site. I do know some people that had to stop going to their favorite bars b/c they were open carrying.
I am wondering if getting my permit is worth all the trouble and possibly fouling up on knowledge of the laws and getting arrested/charged with something

You are guilty of a 5th degree misconduct with a gun if you break the rules in AS 11.61.220:
"AS 11.61.220.d.1.C Any place where intoxicating liquor is sold for
consumption on the premises, except a restaurant where the
person carrying the firearm did not consume intoxicating
I sit humbly corrected... and will now go refresh myself on all those rules...
In NM, you can be found guilty of a felony for carrying in a place that serves, regardless of whether the signage was visible: it's strict liability here. State v. Torres, 2003-NMCA-101, 134 N.M. 194, 75 P.3d 410 (Ct. App. 2003).
Yea Erich I inadvertently carried into a Wall mart in Northern NM right after colorado got resprisciosity and did not untill later realise that i had commited a felony , and strict liability one at that . Thankfully no incident or notice was taken . I did the same thing in TX entering a hospital that did not have 30.06 signs clearly posted at the entrance i used . Once i learned of the respective statutes tho i respect them .
Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.
In addition to whatever mandatory training your State requires, you would be well advised to enroll in a class or classes taught by competent, professional instructors. If you can't, or won't, make this committment, then you should not carry a gun.
Is it "worth all the trouble" to do this? You bet it is.
When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier.
I am not a holder yet. Thats why I am doing everything I can to research it :) . I appreciate your imput.
It can be a hassle at times but nowhere near the hassle of getting mugged, beaten or killed by some lowlife in search of drug money.
[QUOTE=Fjolnirsson;34635]That's one of the reasons I'm glad to be in Oregon. Bars, churches, schools, all good in Oregon. Only place I can't carry are prisons and courthouses. Possibly the Post Office, but that depends on how you interpret "lawful purpose". Sometimes I hear folks talking about where they can't carry, and it hardly seems worth the trouble.
Post offices are off limits. United states post offices are federal facilities and carry is prohibited under federal law!
In Texas if there is no 51% sign on the establishment you can carry.
If it is not in the US Constitution then the Federal Government should not be doing it.

One of the few good things about Minnesota. No laws against carrying places that serve or sell alcohol. But we do have a .04 blood alcohol limit for carrying.
In Indiana you can carry into a bar resturant. I am not sure if you can drink or not. When I carry and plan to go out to dinner or what not I choose not to drink. It also gives others in my group a DD.
