    Utah Concealed Firearm Permit class - Richmond, Va Saturday, January 29, 2011

    Proactive Shooters' next Utah permit class will be held on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at the Bass Pro Shop in Ashland, Virginia (just north of Richmond).

    The class runs about 6 hours and the cost for the class is $85. Concealed carry enthusiasts know that the Utah permit is the permit to have! The Utah non-resident permit is now valid in 30 states! (34 when combined with a Virginia resident permit)

    Come take the class and see why Proactive Shooters is the leader in Utah permit classes in Virginia! You may register online at www.ProactiveShooters.com

    You are not breaking down and giving in to "Da Man", are you?

    But then, IIRC, you sat through a class once while someone else was attending in order to pay the poll tax.

    Or are you .........?

    Nah. Couldn't be.

    stay safe.

    No....but Jane has talked about one and as you remember, I don't like her taking the classes alone.

    I know Proshooter will give a very comprehensive class and the last one made a good news article.

    If someone has a VA CHP, how many more States are added? And which States?

    And to add my own question:
    Is there a VCDL discount? And, if so, how much is that?

    We do not currently have a special discount set up, but our cost is lower than many of our competitors so there is a savings there.

    Other than someone who plans to travel to those four states not covered by Virginia, the best value for a Utah permit, at least in my opinion, is that Utah knows the value in keeping a "Concealed" permit holders information concealed from those who have no business in knowing that you have it.

    Unlike Virginia, where your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, boss, jealous ex-girlfriend, maniac ex-husband, local newspaper reporter, etc, etc, can walk into the local Clerk of the Court office and view your application, and know that you have been issued the permit.

    TFred does make an excellent point, and that is one reason that alot of students take the course and obtain the Utah permit.

    If the class is half as good as your VA class, I have no doubt that it truly is the best Utah class in the state... not that I have any reason to doubt in the first place! Not to mention that I respect an instructor who uses this board for more than his personal gains and advertising grounds!

    Keep on keeping on, Jim.

    The class is 6 hours, but if you have duties to attend to back at the farm, I can cut it down to 5 hours, 55 minutes.

    Thank you Curtis! That is very nice of you to say. I do really enjoy teaching the Utah permit class. There's quite a bit of material, but its all good and valuable information whether you open carry or carry concealed. Besides, spending a day with fellow gun owners talking guns is fun!

    Hopefully you'll have a seat left if and when Jane decides Jim.
    I didn't look at the date (It's a Saturday) so I'll be at the farm even if I drive back for breakfast.

    I do want to sit in on another one though.

    It's a CHP in Va Zenreal (as if it matters) but no, you don't need one.

    If you and Jane cannot make it to this one, we do one every month. We'll get you in there!

    As Peter said, you do not need a Va permit first. There are no pre-requisites for the class.

    In fact, you can use this class to also obtain a Va permit or, you can carry in Va with just a Utah permit. Lots of options.
