    Can you recommend anyone for training up in Fairfax/Leesburg area? I'd go to Richmond but that is a bit of a hike :-p

    I want to get the lady lessons in shooting (she can shoot a 45 no issue, but not the best aim!) before she takes CHP classes.

    Hsmith - I dont know anyone personally up that way, but I'm sure there are some fine instructors here that will jump in from that area.

    Jim, thanks!

    I know someone in nuclear in SC, but he runs the reactor

    as a side note, they go through a lot of brass on site though for training, he is trying to get it for reloading

    And just remember this story from PVC/VCDL regarding nuclear security:

    - - - -

    Right after September 11, 2001, one of our members, who was a courier,
    was directed to deliver a part to a nuclear power plant.

    The member wasn't a dummy. He knew that security would be tight to
    the point of paranoid, so he unloaded his concealed handgun, left it
    in plain view on his seat, parked well back of the guard gate, and
    walked up to the guard gate unarmed.

    Indeed there was a young state trooper at the gate, in addition to
    normal security. The trooper noticed the EMPTY shoulder holster and
    asked the VCDL member if he had a gun. The VCDL member answered
    truthfully that he did back in his car.

    The trooper went the the member's car and proceeded to "read him the
    riot act." However, the officer was out of line as the member was
    doing nothing illegal.

    Then the officer asked, "Can I search your car?"

    The member thinking that he was a good guy and had absolutely nothing
    to hide, said, "Sure!"

    Bad, bad, bad mistake.

    The officer searched the inside of the car and then popped the trunk.

    The officer looked in the trunk and then stood up and advised the
    permit holder to put his hands behind his back and he arrested the
    permit holder.

    The shocked permit holder asked what the officer had found.

    The officer said, "You have a bolt cutter in the trunk. That is
    considered a burglary tool in Virginia. I am charging you with
    possession of burglary tools AND felony attempt to sabotage a nuclear
    power plant!"

    The member (and most of you, I'll bet) had no idea that having bolt

    cutters in your trunk was a crime! Remember, the law books can cover
    a huge amount of space in a library. Buried in those books are laws
    against more things than you can possibly imagine!

    The member went straight to PRISON for THREE DAYS, until he could be
    arraigned.

    In the end ALL charges were dropped, but the member was out some
    serious money, lost many night's sleep, and lost his job.

    There would have been similar results if the member had a teenage
    child who had hidden some drugs in the trunk, unbeknownst to his or
    her parents. The unsuspecting parent lets the police search the trunk
    and WHAMO - off to jail.

    Let me put it this way. If I said to you that I had a casino and the
    BEST you could do if you played absolutely perfectly was BREAK EVEN,
    would you come to my casino?

    NO.

    That is the same arrangement you have when you let the police search
    your car or step into your house during a "knock and talk." The best
    you can do is to NOT get arrested. The worst you can do is go to jail
    for something you didn't even know was illegal.

    Are all police bad and not to be trusted? Of course not! But
    remember that they are sworn and they may incorrectly believe you have
    something to hide and thus ask if they can search your car or come
    into your house. If they see something and you have given them
    permission to look, you're in a lot of trouble.

    Carry On.

    Go to http://www.nvtactical.com/index.html. It sounds all kinda high-speed low-drag, but ask for Tommy and he will do whatever she needs. The range that he used to use (He may have moved) is up 15 to the river, then left a few miles.

    He will train/shoot, rain or shine... ask me how I know! Aw, well, nobody melts.

    Another option for training is Piedmont Instructors at http://www.piedmontnrainstructors.com/ who hold classes in Basic Pistol and Personal Protection Inside the Home on a regular basis in Chantilly.
