    Brad, Welcome to OCDO! If you have not already done so, please sign up for VCDL email alerts on the VCDL webpage.

    To address your questions:
    1: Virginia allows OC
    2: Getting a CHP is not hard, just have to take an approved class and submit the appropriate paperwork.

    This will answer the basic questions of VA's laws, but nothing is all inclusive.

Size:  9.4 KB and as Esanders said check out VCDL.org. If nothing else sign up for free alerts. I live in Accomack County and while you dont see a lot of open carry on the Eastern Shore it is perfectly legal. Not sure how Northampton County is but Accomack is fairly good for CHP.

    Send me a PM and I'd be glad to talk to you if you'd like.

    Virginia is a "shall issue" state - if no disqualifying factor(s), an application for a CHP must be issued within 45 days.

    There are numerous ways to satisfy the training requirements:

    1. Completing any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries or a similar agency of another state;

    2. Completing any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course;

    3. Completing any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by a law-enforcement agency, junior college, college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association or the Department of Criminal Justice Services;

    4. Completing any law-enforcement firearms safety or training course or class offered for security guards, investigators, special deputies, or any division or subdivision of law enforcement or security enforcement;

    5. Presenting evidence of equivalent experience with a firearm through participation in organized shooting competition or current military service or proof of an honorable discharge from any branch of the armed services;

    6. Obtaining or previously having held a license to carry a firearm in the Commonwealth or a locality thereof, unless such license has been revoked for cause;

    7. Completing any firearms training or safety course or class, including an electronic, video, or on-line course, conducted by a state-certified or National Rifle Association-certified firearms instructor;

    8. Completing any governmental police agency firearms training course and qualifying to carry a firearm in the course of normal police duties; or

    9. Completing any other firearms training which the court deems adequate.
