    New VA Non-Res CCW Permit holder here.

    New to this site and started browsing after I sent in my packages for FL and VA last month. Mailed them both out on the same day. VA got theirs on Feb 17. The permit was processed and lamintated on Feb 25 and in my mailbox March 7. I thought I'd be waiting months.

    I live in the republic of New Jersey (no ccw), so I can't do a wally world walk. I'd have to drive over to PA. Maybe I can do a Cabela's walk.

    Still waiting on FL...

    Welcome and congrats. They laminated your VA permit? I think I got cheated, I had to laminate my own. Good luck own FL.

    Maybe VA is moving out of the stone age. My resident license is nothing more than a business card. VA has gone to a new laser printed license now, so hopefully they will also use the same process for CHL's. Welcome aboard.

    Thanks, all.

    Took a closer look at the card. It looks like one of those DIY business cards where you print out a full 8.5x11 page, then tear it apart along the fine perforations to the size of a business card.

    Looks like the lamination is mainly to get the photo onto the card. The photo that I sent in wasn't scanned into a system and printed as a whole (kinda like my driver's lic.). The photo looks to just be laid on top of the card and the whole thing laminated. The edge lamination are pretty thin where the photo is, so I'll have to be careful not to bend the card and seperate the laminated plastic.

    Does the resident permits have a photo on it?

    I received mine in Jan. 2008, and there is no photo on it.

    Take your license to Staples and they can laminate better than the Commonwealth of Virginia did.

    I guess the photo ones are only for no-res permits.

    Welcome from Amelia county Virginia. I'm jealous. My Virginia resident permit took 43 days after I had to resubmit the application because a county investigator did not know the law.

    Took me by surprise when I came home and I had my 2nd envelope from the Commonwealth of Virginia. The first was a receipt for my payment just last week and this one with the permit enclosed. I felt the hard outline of the card in the envelope, so I figured it wasn't a denial letter or something.

    I also enclosed copies of any and all gov't documents in with my application.
    NJ FID card
    US Passport
    NRA Basic Pistol Cert. (Required)
    NJ Driver's Lic.

    I am also a recent FID holder (Sept 2008), so my background has been recently done, but I don't know if that would help any in getting the application processed faster.

    They wouldn't have helped. The whole issue was that I'd been charged with a misdemeanor 34 years previously(not convicted) He claimed that I had answered a question wrong because I had not listed it. I paid to run my own background check, which came back with no convictions found. I resubmitted my application with a copy of my own background check and included a copy of the Va statute showing that I only had to list misdemeanor "convictions" in the last 5 years. I got my permit 45 days after the resubmission. The only catch was that I wound up paying for 3 background checks, so a permit which, in my county of residence should have only cost me $15 wound up costing me $45. Of course, that is what most localities charge anyhow.
