    Finally applied for my CHP

    Yesterday morning I sat at my desk and finally decided after having lived in the great Commonwealth for over six months it was time to get my CHP. So I did my online certificate, filled out my application, ran across the street to get a bank check for $50.00, and drove down to the circuit court.


    Handed everything to the clerk got a dated receipt and now I wait. She told me I will have my permit in no longer then 45 days. I asked if it really takes that long she said usually not depends how busy they are.

    Actually there are a few times that I would like to carry where OC is not widely accepted so I would rather conceal then stir the pot.

    Funny. Almost, but not quite, blow milk out of your nose funny. But funny.

    That could almost be a "provide your own caption" sort of thing.

    Sorry Jim do not feel the need to take a full basic safety class as I already have done twice over the years. However I somehow managed to lose both certificates during my travels.

    I will be in contact with you late spring early summer I would like you to help the other half with her basic shooting, and I am interested in taking your defensive handgun class.

    It's good to have a permit, so he can go to other states and carry, ALSO that crappy 1000foot law thingy.
    How come a DUI you can get your driver licence back, which it is a privilege. But if commiting a felon, even something non violent like stealing, you are denied your constitutional rights for the rest of your life?
    If you don't support the Second Amendment to the Constitution, what other parts of the Constitution do you reject?
    More restrictions on guns? how about restrictions on chainsaws and knives?

    A federal law which, to the best of my knowledge, has never been prosecuted as an independent charge.

    It certainly has never been prosecuted by local or state police.

    Well called the county clerk yesterday asking for status. She asked for my name then put me on hold. She came back and said the judge just signed it, but she had to do the card and that would take 1-2 weeks . I explained to her that 45 days would be up Sunday, and I would be down on Monday to collect either my card or my application to serve as my defacto permit signed by her as I am entitled to per Virginia Statue. Her remark to me was looks like someone has done their homework. I responded with yes maam. She said well will see and hung up. I received a phone call three hours later that it was ready so I drove right on down and picked it up.

    I told you they would pull that non sense, glad you held their feet to the fire.
    If you think like a Statist, act like one, or back some, you've given up on freedom and have gone over to the dark side.
    The easiest ex. but probably the most difficult to grasp for gun owners is that fool permission slip so many of you have, especially if you show it off with pride. You should recognize it as an embarrassment, an infringement, a travesty and an affront to a free person.

    Not sure what the problem is with getting the certificate on line. This is not to say that I do not support the training classe. But my question is, if you support constitutional carry, then people would not have to have training, just wondering what the difference is.
