    Hello from Virginia

    Hi all ;) If there are any other members from Va - feel free to drop me a PM and say hi.


    I am not handgun savvy but was in the US Army - so I am not totally ignorant of weapons.

    I am considering purchasing a handgun for home defense and thought I may as well look into CCW as well. I live in the state of Virginia. If you have any info on what requirements my state has, I would appreciate all the help I can get.

    I would also like to search around and take a safety course.

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Welcome from PA! There's a lot of VA members here, at least two of which work in the training industry, also check out the VCDLs (Virginia Civil Defense League) webiste for some of the requirements and info relating to CCW Permits.

    Welcome
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Welcome from Montana.

    Feel free to drop by the Veterans Roll Call thread and tell us about your Army service.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    here are two essential sites
    http://www.vsp.state.va.us/Firearms.shtm

    http://www.handgunlaw.us/


    basically va is a must issue state take a hand gun safety course or show a proficiency badge from your service have to go to the county clerk for the application they send you to your local police for the back ground check takes a few weeks and you get the ccw. You do not need to register to buy a gun they do instant background when you buy. welcome and hope this helps
