Ok, I don't want to discuss the politics of this, but rather the personal advantages and disadvantages. For example, in order to get one they fingerprint you and you're "on record." Flipside is you get to carry a gun. I've been contemplating getting one, not so I can carry everyday, but so that I can carry when needed. During the summer I travel to some shady places in the state for work. Probably don't NEED to have a cc permit, but it'd be nice. I dunno, just thinking out loud. Are there any major disadvantages for the occasional carrier? Thanks Ary Oh yeah, any Virginians on here carry?
