    Like the title says... Almost immediately after I get back from my current deployment I'll be packing up and moving from Utah to Virginia, specifically the Newport News/Hampton area. I know my UT concealed carry permit is good, but are there any strange gun laws unique to VA?

    No CCW in any place that serves alcohol. But you can open carry there. I.e. Foodcourt at mall that serves beer - in mall concealed, eat in the court the gun must be visible.
    One handgun every 30 days unless you have a CCW.
    To buy an "assault weapon " (AR/AK/etc) you need proof of US citizenship like a passport, birthcert or voter reg card.
    Don't drive to DC, NYC or MA with your guns.

    I'll be at Langley AFB...

    Thanks for the info, I'd read up a little on the local laws... the alcohol situation is an odd one, but I can live with it.

    I would think that in any state, if you have a run in with law enforcement, you're required to inform them that you're carrying. I know that's the case in MI.

    Nothing I found out about. Don't need to declare your long guns. For CCW you just need to show proof that you've taken a gun safety course (I assume the AF can help with that), pay the fee. I don't carry, but have fun playing.

    Don't know where in the area you can shoot much. Camp Allen (Norfolk)has a range for military folks, fairly cheap. You can rent from them too.

    Welcome to the area. The geography and traffic are bitches. I'm down on the Norfolk side of things.

    I live in Va and am not a felon and have a legal handgun, so can I carry it as long as its visible without a permit?
