DC Concealed Carry Lic

As a VA resident we can apply for DC Carry permit. Has anyone done this yet? Do the classes you have already taken apply to those that are needed for the DC class?
Have any pointers?
Any update on how it went would be appreciated.

Re: Gun store wont release my gun to me

Talk to your local circuit court and ask them how to go about this. Get names and paperwork with signatures. You can give gifts to family members of weapons. Get it in writing and bring it with you along with a ph number the gun dealer can call. Go during court hours to the gun store.

Re: AR-15 For Home defense

You can get them in 9mm so there would be less of a chance for it to go further than you want.

Re: Please Help!!! I Would Like Some Help Picking My Next Gun

I have the compact version of that gun the Sig 228.
Try a 320 Compact Xframe. You can put optics on it. Sig or Leupold only for optics. I bought one and am going to order an optic.
I have a scope on a few of my handguns, Thompson Center Contender. I have a .22, .223 and red dot on the .44

Re: Get ready

AS a motorcycle rider I always had zip lock bags that kept my gear dry. Brother was going to Europe to go and tour by back pack. I said let me pack for you. He and his buddy go to the hostels. They walked quite a bit and it did rain often. They get to the hostel for the evening. He opens my packed b...

Re: What is 15 in AR-15?

Car 9 is how the AR-15 in 9MM was referred to. Don't think they made one that was not collapsible or was an Hbar.

Outers rifle rest

Outers Rifle Rest. Hunting season is here. Just because you bought the same ammo you used last year does not mean it will impact in the same spot. Manufacturers do change powers and bullets. Powder manufacturers change the formulas for the powders. It's a very competitive business. I did work at a p...

Re: Safe Dealers in Northern VA?

The proper way to move a safe by your lonesome. Get a good hand cart and a low height floor jack. 2 pcs card board for the jack and towel over that. Lift the door off the safe with the jack and put it on the hand cart. Ratchet strap it to the cart. That's about half the weight of the safe. Move it t...

VA Unconstitutional laws have to be abolished

There are a few sites where there is advertising to sell and buy guns. With these new laws comes the extra burden that I must have a background check for each and every new purchase. It appears that no FFL in Northern VA wants to do a private transfer. They have just made selling and buying of priva...

Re: Hunting doe with a 357 snub nose? legal and ethical?

The vital spot is a dinner plate sized target. So most people could hit that a good distance out especially since every tree is a rest.

The biggest question is what happened to the laws that let each city/or county adopt their own laws? Did that get shelved??

Re: Please Help!!! I Would Like Some Help Picking My Next Gun

I was going to suggest the 228 which is the shorter version of the 226 or the Sig320 X frame. It's a compact that's no so much compact. Great sights and it's a 15 rounder.
The 228 is also listed as a Sig 11. Could not find a better gun than the 226.
