    I know that you can't carry (edit: *concealed *) in a place with an ABC license, but what about the actual ABC store? Also, I know that it's state-regulated, so is it preempted in any way?

    My understanding of this is the liscense has to be an on premise liscense.

    i.e. and ABC store you can CC.

    Correct me if I am wrong on this guys, as I am still a newb.

    You can OC in a place with an ABC license, just no CC in a place licensed for on-premises consumption. You can OC or CC (with a permit) in a VA ABC store as they're not licensed for on-premises consumption.

    "on-premises consumption" is the key!

    I OC into ABC stores around Alexandria all the time. Never had a problem. (VABC near Panera on Duke & one in Arlington near that Thai place we had that meet at).

    OC'd at the ABC here in Dumfries (234) near I95. Got into a conversation with the manager about what type of sidearm I had, etc. etc. Was very friendly and both clerks offered me help getting what I needed.

    I OC'ed in the ABC store in Springfield yesterday. I picked up a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label for my friend's bday/graduation present. I told the manager that i couldnt believe i was spending $200+ for a bottle of liquor, but it's for a good friend. I moved forward to use the credit card machine and he then saw my 229 Elite and said something to the effect of "This is probably the safest bottle of Blue Label ever!" I laughed and smiled and wished him a good day.

    happy carrying,

    Yep, done it many times.
