    W.VA reciprocity?

    Sorry, quick question. I thought I saw that W.VA has a reciprocity agreement with VA as to CHP. Just wanted to make sure its ok to drive into W.VA. Does anyone have experience doing this or getting stopped by the police while there? what happened?
    I was curious because there is a casino there not too far from the border that a family member goes to called charleston raceway or something. as an aside, i would assume that casino would be a posted, no gun place?

    And it's Charles Town Races & Slots...no where near Charleston. Although now I guess it's technically called Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races. I used to go there all the time when I was 18. Now they raised the age to 21 so I'm not allowed in there.

    I assume no place is posted and I don't go out of my way to look for signs.

    .no where near Charleston.
    I used to have some friends who owned a B&B in Charles Town. It wasn't uncommon for them to get a phone call saying, "hey, we just pulled into town but we can't find your place!" Hey, you're only five hours away.

    That reminds me of the guy who was flying to Oakland, Ca. and got on the wrong plane - to Auckland, New Zealand.

    Coming back from my mothers funeral in Chicago my flight to Norfolk got cancelled. After standing in line forever the person at the desk started listing other flights that could get me close. Since Richmond, BWI, Dulles, Raleigh were all full she mentioned Fayetteville. I said bingo put me on that one. So two hours later they started boarding for Fayetteville Arkansas! I would have been a bit longer of a drive than from Fayetteville, NC like I had planned. I wound up staying in the airport for 15 hours and going back to a hotel for $150 a night. :-(
