I live in NJ, so the only time I've ever carried a gun was on the range. I've done LFI 1,2 and 3 as well as Gabe Suarez' Interactive Gunfighting course.I have an nonresident VA CCW and start a new job down there on Tuesday (1/2/06). I will be renting a room in a private home temporarily and at the moment, have no idea of what kind of neighborhood it is or how secure the house/room will be. (The lady tells me it is a safe neighborhood, but she is trying to rent out the room)
The only carry gun I have is a full size 1911 with an IWB holster.
The job is with a company that rents office space, so it doesn't control the parking lot. I don't have a gun safe in the car, and I don't want to show up on the first day carrying.
Does anyone have any suggestions or things I should know about relative to carrying in VA? (I intend to take a VA CCW course ASAP after I'm down there)
