    Only 5 months till the big day huh? I just took the Utah class myself in Colonial Heights at a small shop called The Smoking Gun. I'll PM you with some details.

    We routinely have numerous people make the trip from Maryland and beyond. I dont think it will be as long of a drive as you think. Ashland isnt all that far from NOVA. OUr next Utah class is just a week away.

    Pourshot does a class and he's in Stafford: http://www.4permits.com/

    I attended his basic pistol class when he was still doing it at Shooters and it was excellent. I've been meaning to take the Utah one from him...

    If learn2shoot.org is down, try e-mailing Bill at learn2shoot@gmail.com. I know he holds classes in Fredericksburg from time to time, but I'm not sure where else he does. He lives in NOVA, tho.

    +1 for Bruce too except that the OP asked for a class in NOVA.

    I know two NOVA guys that are both excellent. They are the websites posted.

    I know it does not seem like it, but NOVA is Stafford (exit 143)and above. It used to be Lorton (exit 161)and anything south was the boonies, but it keeps moving further out. Now, you are hearing Massaponax (exit 126) included in some conversations.

    Do you feel like you are in LA yet where the suburbs are considered part of the city for 1000 miles out?

    It's all good information to have. I live in NOVA, but wouldn't even consider going to Stafford for a class unless it was the only one around. OTOH, there may be folks down that way, who are also in NOVA, who wouldn't come up to Chantilly where there are regular classes.

    It's good to have all the information so folks can decide what works best for them.

    Funny - there is a group of instructors that teach in Chantilly and I have driven up there to help them out on occasion.

    Exactly my point, Bruce. If we have all the information that's out there, then we can decide what fits our situation the best.

    Personally, I have no need or desire for a Utah permit, so it doesn't matter to me one way or the other.

    the fingerprint requirement is what keeps me from getting a Utah (or any other permit that requires it). I'm not a criminal and will not be fingerprinted as such. Just a personal issue for me.

    You get fingerprinted on an FBI applicant card, just like if you were getting a security sensitive job. I dont think its all that big of a deal, but to each his own.

    The older I get the more I wish I had never had them taken. Just another government intrusion that is not needed....

    Maybe it's the fact that you are under 21? (OK OK so am I haha)

    Nova- I almost went to a party at GMU this weekend but we ended up at Ibiza in DC instead:celebrate
