    I need to know pretty much everything in order to obtain a CCW. I've got a perfect driving record and lack-of criminal record. Ide like to know what I need and/or what I need to do. Also what Military Discharges will allow a permit. I know that an Honorable will be allowed but what about General Under Honorable and Other Than Honorable? I also know that bad conduct and dishonorable will bar you from the permit. Please clarify

    You aren't active duty?

    VA Code 18.2-308 par E #11
    Disqualified:

    "An individual who has been discharged from the Armed Forces of the United States under dishonorable conditions."

    You can use your 214 to fullfil the training requirement, they will also need copies because they require a 214 on any service members, for verification of discharge type I assume.

    Instructions for Permit Process in Fairfax County
    Download the app, read the PDF file on how to go through the process.

    Nobody needs to submit their DD Form 214, even if they were in the service - we went thru this with VA Beach some years ago - they stopped.

    Last year it was on Fairfax county's CHP procedures list. I just went and checked and saw it was revised last month and it is no longer there. I know it was there this time last year when I got mine. I guess they got the word....

    Read this... http://www.packing.org/state/virginia/

    All I did was fill out the form, take it and a self addressed and stamped envelope to the courthouse, sign it in front of the clerk with ID and I got the permit a few weeks later.

    I posted a link to FFX county that tells you exactly what you need to do. Different counties do things differnetly too. You are in Fairfax county? If not, nevermind. go to your county's circuit court website.

    Hmmm, Answers my question on what I dont need but not fully. I just dont want to pay 50 bucks and then get denied because i didnt give them proof of residency. Although a DL should meet that criteria.

    Does any page in the application need to be notarized?

    No you don't have to give your SSN. There is a link on the page I posted above. That is the procedures for FFX county. It will tell what you need for reesidency, what needs notarized etc. Also you wouldn't be denied for a application missing paperwork, it would marked incomplete.

    Sig, I just applied for mine this past Monday and it was easy.Here's the Fairfax CHP Application Process (fileattached) and it's what I used myself. Mike advised me that if I used my DD-214 (not mandatory) make sure you redact (black out and make unreadable) your SSN. They have no need for that and once it's filed with your application, it becomes Public Record and anyone can gain access to it.

    Here's a link to the thread I started with questions about my application: http://opencarry.mywowbb.com/forum54/1396.html

    Also, on the application your SSN is not required and optional. Do not fill it in and instead write "Not Disclosed, If Any" and leave it at that. Proof of residency is also BS, as Mike explained. I was able to get a computer printout of my Dom Power bill and used that.

    EDIT: Damn VAOpenCarry..you beat me to it!

    You sign there in front of the clerk, raise your right hand and swear it to be true then she signs and notarizes it right there.

    Thanks yall for holding my damn hand through this process haha. I really do appreciate it. I think i'll sign up for the concealed carry class at the NRA next week, (unless there are other classes for cheaper offered elsewhere)

    I do have one more question and this will be it! I promise...hopefully. When i was 16 or 17 i was "offroading" in my bronco II on a "road" which was "under construction" and in the center of that "road" there was a LEO waiting for me. Long story short I got charged with Trespassing and having an open container from which i took from my grammas house down the road and planned on drinking the rest of it when I got home. So the misdemeanors were Trespassing and Open container. I got the tickets and went on my way. I paid both of them immediatly following my court appearance. I was a "stupid kid" says the LEO's and that was it.

    In a situation like this and trying to get a CWP, would these events prohibit me from obtaining a CWP? and this leads me to ask another question. Question #9 on page 1. "Have you ever been convicted of an offense which would be considered either a felony or misdemeanor? (include convictions of driving under the influence and/or any offense for which you were convicted as a juvenile, which would have been a felony if committed by an adult.)"

    If YES would I complete part B to the best of my knowledge since i cant remember exactly which day or year i did it in.

    Wow, sorry you have to read all that

    Sig, that's a good question and I don't have a definitive answer for you. I would dare say thatit would have no bearing on your ability to get a CHP, but I could be totally wrong. Mike, you have any input on this? I've always understood the term "CONVICTED" to mean "in a court of law by a judge and/or jury".

    Also, VA has CHP's not CWP's, as they're for Concealed Handguns only, not Concealed Weapons such as knives and the such.

    Are your offenses felony's?, no.

    If you are not sure call the State Police and ask if you should put them on there. Or just put them on there with information to the best of your knowledge. These are not disqualifying 'crimes'.

    Or if you have the money, maybe sitting down with a lawyer. I imagine both of those offenses are minor and would not effect your application but only a lawyer would be able to tell you for sure.

    Your SSN is optional

    If you were convicted of 2 misdemeanors you have to wait 5yrs if one was a class 1, if not its 3 yrs(va state police site under resident permits #7&9).

    I believe the proof of residence is something extra they require as well that they have no business to ask for. Mike may be able to give you more information on that requirement. However, if you just want to give them something so help the process along, just give them a power bill or lease or whatever.

    key word is convicted. I am unsure what this means as there was no jury and it was a no contest on my part. Also it would not be a felony if commited by an adult.

    I believe pleading no contest is the same as a conviction.
