    I am holding a legal seminar on Virginia self-defense laws near Dulles on Saturday, August 22 from 10am - 1pm. I am also discounting the seminar. $65 for VCDL members, $75 for everyone else.

    I cover quite a bit in three hours:

    "For the cost of 200 rounds of .45 ACP (if you can find it) you will get a much deeper understanding of self-defense in the Commonwealth of Virginia from an attorney. Plenty of shooters are willing to invest in their shooting skills but not many invest in their understanding of the legal boundaries of self-defense.

    The seminar covers the following topics:

    Purchase and possession of arms in the Commonwealth of Virginia
    General legal guidelines for the use of force
    Justification versus Excuse
    Self-defense
    Virginia's lack of a "castle doctrine" - and why it (mostly) doesn't matter
    Defense of Others
    Defense of Property
    What is "open carry" and what is "concealed carry" in Virginia? Not quite what you think.
    Interacting with Law Enforcement Officers
    Travelling armed: planes, trains, and automobiles
    What to do when in other jurisdictions: a practical "travelling" mode for reciprocal states

    The travelling part is not just one subject; it is covered throughout the brief so that students have an idea how to deal with the laws governing self-defense in other states. The important part is knowing how they generally differ from Virginia (and they differ a lot)."

    A legal seminar is not a concealed handgun course - it is a legal class on the statutes and case law governing the open or concealed carry of a handgun. This DOES NOT meet the Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) requirements. Rather, this is intended for people who already have a CHP but are not versed in the law. If you received your CHP after a basic concealed handgun course with no discussion of the legal implications of using a handgun in self-defense, this is for you. Disclaimer: The information provided in the seminar is not intended as individualized legal advice. I am not your lawyer. You are not my client. Participation in this seminar is expressly intended NOT to create an attorney-client relationship. Students will sign a waiver and agree to hold harmless Defensive Force Instructors, LLC before class starts.

    My resume: I am a former Special Forces soldier, International Defensive Pistol Association Master-Class competitor, and an attorney in Virginia. I teach NRA certified handgun courses and specialized concealed carry courses on the side.

    Carry On.

    Ed;

    This looks interesting. I attended a seminar hosted by one of our members (a lawyer), Saturday a week ago in Linden but it's always good to get as much info on this topic as you can. Do you know if you can OC in the Marriott?


    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    If I'm in town I'll be there.

    You don't see many courses offering advice on the legal aspect of VA law.
