Greetings. New NoVA member here. CHP applied for - no reason to believe it won't be approved. But I'm on the fence about actually carrying in public. Main reason for CHP was to make matters easier when driving around the area, to/from range, etc. For now, I'm spending a lot of time reading the laws and others' opinions for and against CC. Next step is I plan on taking some more training (NRA personal protection classes), plus getting plenty more range time to practice.
Then and only then I will decide if CC is for me. But I appreciate the wisdom and opinions here, so I will be doing plenty of reading. Thanks!

I can't think of any reasons not to carry concealed if you do so legally where permitted.
