That my Permit does not allow me to lawfully carry on federal property, in schools (where there appears to be a lack of self defense capability when BG decides that the rules no longer apply to him) and that there is no way that I will ever be able to visit family in NY state while in posession of my, legally owned, firearm.

That most are pistol permits rather than weapon permits.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

Being mostly surrounded by states that we don't have reciprocity with forcing us to get non-res permits from other states. At least West Virginia likes us.
Btw...obxned, you can come up a bit farther north, we don't mind y'all a bit. Btw, you can count our restrictions on one hand and have a few fingers left over.

I'm pretty sure its been aforementioned, but I'll still say it.
(In no order)
-Having to disarm for certain places
-That its a PISTOL permit, not a concealed WEAPONS permit. Sometimes I think I'd love to conceal something other than my trusty S&W or p3at.
-The trend more and more towards "posted" places. In Va we don't have 30.06 signs, but theres alot of places with "No concealed weapons" or "No weapons" signs, its a trespassing offence. But still a criminal offense.
-That I get paranoid when it rains because I don't want it to get wet!

Although I don't travel all that much, reciprocity, complex TSA and airline regs, and inconsistency among state laws including the ones with reciprocity, all combine to make an out of state travel experience something that requires more research and preparation than necessary.
Beyond reciprocity, the most frustrating thing I find is the present ammo shortage in .380.

Finding a way to carry 100% concealed under the following requirements:
Dress shirt--must be tucked in
Dress slacks--must fit reasonably well.
Must be able to remain secret for a full day under intense scrutiny by curious young females with wandering eyes, in an office type environment.
That's tough! and Frustrating!
The problem with private businesses, is that I rarely notice a sign as I walk inside because I'm usually engrossed in conversation with the people people I'm with when I enter a place. I simply don't look for them.
I've also never seen people greeting everyone as they enter asking if they are carrying a gun so I don't worry about it.
Maybe that makes me a bad person, but I've never done a bad thing with my gun, and never will.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
My wife asking: Is that a new gun? Is that a new holster? Do you really need to carry so many guns? Why to you have to buy all that junk? Isn't one gun enough?
Other than this, just the ordinary limitations.

Yes my friend, that to is a cross I bear
Any government official, business owner, private citizen, employer that believes he has the right to bypass the second amendment.
