    Open carry in Chesapeake VA questions...

    When I look up information on carrying most of what I find is info for carrying concealed. I want to open carry but I have a couple questions.

    Can I carry loaded or does it have to be unloaded?

    Can I carry openly without any kind of permit?

    Head on down to the VA subforum. Many there are experts in their respective opinions.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare

    As long as you are 18 and not a prohibited person you can carry with one in the pipe and you do not need a permit. Visit the Virginia sub-forum to get all of the details for carry in Virginia. There are a few gotchas such as the prohibition in all of an airport carrier building (even outside of the secure area).

    Poor turn of a phrase...perhaps?
