Virginia CHL online
« on: February 20, 2017, 03:13:53 PM »
I received a piece of mail about getting a Virginia CHL online from some outfit.  Tore it up and tossed it.  Today, my neighbor received the same thing online.  It purports to offer an online course leading to a concealed handgun license by online study.  When I checked the Virgina statute -- 


http://law.lis.virginia.gov/vacode/title18.2/chapter7/section18.2-308.02/

It appears it is possible under. Section 18.2-308.02(B)(7) to obtain a CHL by online course from a qualified instructor, but this still looks like a scam and the promotion leaves a lot of unfo out, like having to have notarized application, etc.


Has anyone else. Received this?  Is it a scam?

I've seen ads for Utah CCW class online, mostly on FB and the shooting forums I use.  They don't seem to include fingerprinting and photo fees.  The cost is about double what one would pay for live classroom, which usually does include the fees and the required range time.

I wouldn't bite for what I can see.  I'd bet double er nothin' that it's the same outfit and they're tailoring the ad to mention your state or the state your Internet server happens to be.
Winter is coming.

I can't say I hate the government, but I am proudly distrustful of them.

Yes, it specifically says Texas residents can get the Virginia license.  Probably change wording for each state they target.  They sent it to my neighbor who is 87 years old and needs a walker to get around.  Well, I guess he could carry concealed in his bag on the walker.

What is an enhanced conceal license?

A lot of states are now honoring other states that honor their licenses. A lot of states honor FL's CWL.
