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.
Hi and Welcome. There's a good number of folks on here from VA. Glad to have you.

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.
