Just thought I'd record and share getting my Virginia CHP here in the great city of Arlington. I've filled-out the Virginia Application For Concealed Handgun Permit forms. I called the Arlington Sherrifs Department, and was forwarded to the Arlington County Circuit Court, which is where the paper-work needs to be submitted. I spoke at length to a Miss Jones, who explained that I needed to get my application notorized, and do my finger-print card, both of which can be done in the same county building (at the Sherrif's office) as the circuit court. I have a feeling that I need to get passport pictures to turn in with my application, but that wasn't mentioned. One note is that there is absolutely no information on applying for a permit on the Arlington county government web-site. I have a feeling that they don't want to make the process easy. I've had my Michigan CPL since they were available, but evidently that's not good enough for showing proficiency with a handgun, so now I'm calling the NRA looking for an on-line course that I can complete to go with my application.
