    New Member from Virginia

    Hello to all. I am new to the CCW world and brand-new to this forum, as I just recently received my permit from the State of Virginia. I carry a Ruger LC9 and am still becoming familiar with it at the range and carrying it concealed.

    I have already learned a lot just browsing through various forums on this site, and am looking forward to continuing my education in the world of concealed carry. I look forward to any general advice or stories, especially anything relating to Virginia-state laws on the topic of concealment.

    Background: Iím active-duty (Army) and just recently returned from a three-year assignment in Germany, which is one of the safest places I have ever lived. It was only shortly after I returned back to the States that I realized that things have to change on my behalf if I want to protect myself, my family and my property. Iím also a Harley rider, so Iíll gladly take any advice on how to ride concealed!

    Welcome from Southwestern Virginia. My jacket covers my OWB carry when I ride with no problem so I carry just like I normally do.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! Thanks for your continuing service in the Army. Planning on staying in until retirement? I highly recommend it, lol. If it weren't for that monthly retirement check I'd be cooked because I lost my job several years ago & don't plan on looking any further for the present. There's nothing there anyhow.

    Welcome from the Richmond area.

    As for the riding your bike and remaining concealed, it's the same procedures. Just a reminder, your in VA, open carry is 100% legal, so if it becomes viewable while riding, no foul/no penalty.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.
