Very Simple. Go to your closest firearms dealer

and ask them who teaches the course. Most stores have a course at least every couple weeks and it can be finished in a weekend. I have had my permit for 25 years and back then the class was a 2 day class. Now I think they have consolidated it into a one 8 hour course.

I tell everyone that carrying a pistol SUCKS. It completely changes your life. It will dictate buildings that you cant go into. Restrooms can be a total pain in the ass. God forbid if you feel like dropping in to the local HS to watch a LAX game.....cant do that when you're heavy. Oh 99 deg heat....when the shorts and tshirt would be so great...well you still need to conceal so go find another layer to put on. It really can suck.

Carrying a pistol has to become completely second nature. It has to become a part of you just like your car keys and wallet. When you are "learning" to carry you need to do everything carrying. Mowing grass, washing the car, feeding the hogs, whatever.

The turn-around time for a renewal in Bed. County is about 5 weeks so its not to long. I believe VA set a law that it cant be longer than 6 weeks for approval from the Sheriff Dept or they are violating state law...don't hold me to that 6 weeks but its something like that.

With the current political landscape and a CCW is something you want to do...I would make it a priority.

My wife has her permit if for nothing else than if she jumps in my truck and I have a handgun under the seat or whatever....she isn't breaking the law.
