    Hello everyone.

    I am from Ireland andI am going to visit Virgina in May of 2008.

    Am I correct in my understanding of Virginia State Law that if I have permission from the ATF to bring my sidearm into the United States, that I can open carry or am I required to look to the State Police for a permit / licence ?

    Hereshoping that you guys and gals can help !



    Stay safe ..... and stand up for your rights or it will be like Ireland..

    5 Million people here and less than 3000 handgun permits ! None of them open carry!

    If you are legally allowed to possess a gun, you can legally open carry it.

    If only everything were that easy. Haha! Despite some of its issues with a lot of gun laws, Virginia I think is one of the, if not THE most firearm friendly state... at least as far as states I've lived in go.

    If you happen to travel near Yorktown or Williamsburg please let us know. Consider this an official invitation to enjoy one of our open carry dinners.

    I also live close enough to a private range that I can walk over and shoot - I would be gald to spend some time at the range shooting if you are interested.

    Kind regards.

    Yeah, welcome over on your visit to the fine state of Virginia. I'm a native with a long lineage as is my wife (hers goes back to 1636).

    What part of Virginia are you planning to visit?

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Its a long border, but rest assured no matter where you are, there are at least a few of our 3,000 members who would be happy to show you some "Old Dominion" hospitality. Renegade lives right around the corner from me in York County, so one or both of us can show you around if you get to that area. I second his offer about the Lafayette Gun Club. I'm sure you would enjoy some time there. The Tidewater dinner group would probably set up one of their dinners if you could give us some advance warning. We have had some guests from abroad in the past.

    Stay in touch.

    It's a shame that Ireland has been so disarmed. I gotta say...from the point of view of a tyrant, Irishmen would be the FIRST that need to be disarmed. You Irish have an amazing history of standing up to tyrants.

    Ditto. I'm a lot further north than you guys, but if he gets up here, he's more than welcome to spend some time here...

    Hee hee hee hee....

    By all means, Ironsight, let us know where you end up. I'm near part of the WV/VA border, myself. I also wouldn't be against taking a bit of a drive.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
