Not sure how VA will handle your application considering your past history in your own state. With your own permit being rejected and a hearing pending VA may deny you. You might want to check with a lawyer before you waste your money.
Persons Not Qualified to Obtain a Permit:
http://www.vsp.state.va.us/Firearms_...dHandgunPermitAn individual, who it is alleged, in a sworn written statement submitted by the sheriff, chief of police or attorney for the Commonwealth in the opinion of such sheriff, chief of police or attorney for the Commonwealth, is likely to use a weapon unlawfully or negligently to endanger others. The statement of the sheriff, chief of police or the attorney for the Commonwealth shall be based upon personal knowledge or upon the sworn written statement of a competent person having personal knowledge.
Also your wrong about the cost. That $50 is for residents only. Nonresidents have to pay $100 according to the states website.
Application FeeAll completed application packages must include a money order or cashier’s check in the amount of $100.00, made payable to the Virginia State Police. Receipt of the application without payment will cause the unprocessed application package to be returned to the applicant. The application fee is non-refundable regardless of the final determination of eligibility.
Best of luck to you.
