i'm from VA, and i'm under 21 by a scant year and a half, so unfortunately i can't get my ccw, and i'm too chicken to open carry...yet.
so, i discovered that VA honors idaho's non-res permits, but that idaho requires a visit when you apply for one. anyone know if the visit is always required, or if it's just prefered? shellin out five hundred bucks for a plane ticket is kind of hard for a poor student, if ya know what i mean!
First, Virginia does not honor Idaho's permits. See the Virginia State Police reciprocity/recognition site.
Second, Va. Code § 18.2-308(P), Virginia's reciprocity/recognition law, denies recognition to permits held by individuals under 21 years old.
Third, Idaho is may-issue for 18-to-20-year-olds, meaning your chances of getting an Idaho permit are probably low. See Idaho Code § 18-3302(1)(l) & (11).
I sympathize with your situation, but the only advice I can give you is to consider OC for now and then get your VA CHP as soon as you turn 21.
