For those people who don't know VA CC, it is one of the loosest in the country. Went to a gun show there last month and they literally had a trailer outside where you could get your CC in 2 hours with some class and paperwork. Kind of ridiculous if you ask me, but then again people were walking in, buying AR's and walking out same day...

Additionally, I would recommend doing a lot of shooting before you actually carry. I didn't like that advice when someone told me the first time (old time shooter who knew better), but it is very wise to have tons of rounds down range and be comfortable with your firearm platform before ever carrying. Make sure to invest in proper carry gear too, not this gun show or uncle mike's crap.
Your advice is sound and sensible but I love some of the language. I will translate for the other Aussies:


tons of rounds down range = practice a lot

firearm platform = gun

carry gear = holster
