    Jim if I had the money then I would have been there for the course in a flash but hopefully I will be soon, I gotto check if I as a Canadian Citizen can get a Utah Non-Resident Permit because if I can then I will save up some money so I can be there soon.

    I recently checked if I could buy a pistol there in VA but for that I have to have a non-immigrant documentation number that I can apply for at the border so that might not be a problem but I also have to stay in VA for at least 90 Days before I can buy one so for now I can only get the Utah permit.

    Unfortunately not yet but I am about to apply for a restricted weapons licence here in Quebec so I can buy a handgun (We have to first pass a non-restricted weapons course which teaches us about hunting rifles and afterwards we can go the restricted weapons course to be allowed to purchase and own handguns ONLY for range use) and use it on the range but I do have a US Bank Account so I was planning on storing the handgun in a safe deposit box in either Norfolk or Virginia Beach while I was away from Virginia and carrying it while I was down there because I think it would be a lot harder if I would try and bring my Canadian Handgun into the US and also presently I don't have a drivers licence so I would be taking Greyhound down and they don't allow it so I don't have much choice in the matter.

    One thing that bothers me though is that I recently came across user comments on a Salt Lake City newspaper talking about Utah not allowing Canadians a non-resident permit anymore so I have to contact BCI in Utah to find out what is going on and if I can get it or not.

    But no matter what, I will move to Virginia as soon as I can come Hell or high water.

    I guess that shows how determined I am. =oP

    Just got off the phone with BCI and they are extremely nice and helpful.

    I found out through one of the Managers that they no longer allows Canadian Residents to apply for a Non-Resident Permit due to the fact that they can't get information from the Canadian Police in regards to if the applicant has a protective order against him/her or not but I would think that if the person has a protective order against him/her then they wouldn't be allowed to have a restricted handgun licence or as it is called here PAL.

    Looks like I will have to pay the exhorbitant fees for a Florida Licence instead but I digress.

    I hope everybody graduates the training and I wish you and your students good luck Jim.

    Thank you!

    Interest has been very, very high. I'm very pleased.

    We may end up scheduling a secondclass in July if the demand stays high.

    Congrats, I was told by the manager for BCI that as soon as I establish residency in Virginia they would have no problems with issuing me a non-resident permit so now I got to hurry up and finish my education so I can move. =oP

    You can also apply for your Virginia permit on the very first day that you live in Virginia.

    Hmm, yeah that is true and I can take the Utah course when I have settled in because I doubt I will be going anywhere for a while after I move to Virginia.

    But until then I am gonna take the two classes here and try the various pistols and buy the one I like shooting and holding the best but I definetly want to try the new Springfield XD-M .40 caliber because .40 caliber sounds like the best round as in recoil and also in stopping power with a 165 grain bullet but I gotto learn more about ballistics and the various calculations, but research is fun. :P

    For a defensive handgun, we reccomend either a .40 or a .357 Sig round

    Just an FYI.....

    We will be taking registrations for our Utah class at the Richmond Showplace gun show this weekend.

    If you haven't already signed up, we expect interest to be high so I recommend doing so quickly. If this class fills up, we plan to schedule another one quickly.

    Thanks!

    You can OC, no problem.

    You CC if you have a permit valid in Va.

    The only issue is that we do not allow any live ammunition in the classroom, so you'll be carrying an empty gun. We don't allow any ammo for safety reasons.
