    Cheapest option for VA concealed carry course?

    I'm looking to get my wife into a course to qualify her for her Virginia CHP. When I got mine, I took the Utah CFP course, and had the instructor write me a certificate for VA as well. I understand basically any firearm safety course will work for the CHP, so I was looking for the cheapest/easiest option for her. Any suggestions?

    If you want cheap and easy there is a good online course. Costs just $39.99.

    It doesn't beat hands-on training, but if she is already competent with a firearms then it should be more than enough.

    Yeah I'm comfortable enough training her myself on carrying, and she has the operation/shooting down. I would never promote taking a "shortcut" and not being actually competent/qualified enough to carry, just want to make that clear.

    Gotcha, that online course would be perfect then.

    The least expensive way would be a Hunter's Safety course as most are offered free of charge, assuming she doesn't have a DD214 (Veteran US Armed Services) which offset the need for any further training.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Send her to one of our courses at She Can Shoot. We are women teaching women. I don't recommend you teach her. Too much stress having a family member teach.

    We teach both men and women.
