When my wife and I got ours in Norfolk they didn't ask for weapon proof or finger prints. I know of 3 co workers that have gotten theirs in the last couple months and same goes for them no proof or finger printing as they are active duty.
I don't know what the issue is as too why the changed or proof even for active duty.
Has anyone else recently run into this issue or know of anyone who it has happened too.
I did ask the clerk about the change and she said it has always been like this. Same goes for the lady at the police station on Va Beach Blvd where I took them to get prints taken. WhenI informed her that my wife and I's wasn't the same or those of my co workers she wanted my info and said they would have to review the application to verify it was done correctly. I didn't give it to her. But they only charged my friend and his wife $45 for the permit. I paid $50 and thought it was still the same.
Live fire - if that is what you mean by "proficiency" is not required.
