I'm glad to hear that it has gone so well for you. I lived in Charlottesville for two years just after I finished college. I wasn't carrying at that point, but I have always had the impression that Charlottesville would be one of the least carry-friendly places in Virginia, especially with the high concentration of academics and internationals. I hope my impression was wrong.
I may have to try OCing in Charlottesville if I get over there while I'm back in Virginia in July.
