    Virginia CHP Question--moving within the state

    I got my permit from Montgomery County, Virginia as I had residence there. Since then I have moved to a new locale within the state of Virginia; Chesterfield County.

    Do I have to get a new permit? Have the address on it changed?

    My permit doesn't expire until 2012, so I really don't want to have to go through the process again or pay any more $$ than I have to. However, my CHP is from Montgomery County Circuit Court and the address on it is my old address. I feel like this could be an issue with an anal retentive cop/or commonwealth's attorney.

    Permit is still valid.

    From VSP's website...
    The address on my Resident Concealed Handgun Permit is no longer correct. Is my permit still valid?
    Yes, but you may request a replacement permit if you wish. The clerk of a circuit court that issued a valid concealed handgun permit shall, upon presentation of the valid permit and proof of a new address of residence by the permit holder, issue a replacement permit specifying the permit holder's new address.

    The only real disadvantage is that some gun shops will not accept the CHP as a second form of ID when purchasing a new handgun because it doesn't have the current address.

    Sweet thanks for the advice. MC wouldn't mail me my permit when I initially got it because they needed to see me with a valid id before they gave it to me. I wonder if I will have to make a trip out that way to get it taken care of. I'll give them a call tomorrow. It'd give me a good excuse to go hangout/visit with my college buddies.

    If something does not have your current address on it you should never try to use it as an ID. Rather than as a 2nd form of ID think if you were a merchant and someone tried to cash a check and gave two ID's with different addresses. Which would you think is the correct one? I wouldn't accept either one then. Always best to have everything matching to avoid confusion unless you are trying to hide something.

    Not always true...

    I live in VA with an IL drivers license...and my CHP has an old address...with PCS orders, I never had a problem purchasing firearms.

    Further, with the old address, one doesn't have to deal with the repercussions of the next anti newspaper that decides to make a easily searchable by address database of CCW holders as was done not too long ago
