New to VA, lived in the USA for half my life, sadly in blue states as work required it, now finally off the anti-gun areas and after being over 30 days in VA i'm ready to shop.
Given the current political climate and having grown up under a dictatorship and knowing the "smell" of some things that are happening and others that may come and also having experienced only being able to fight government with just rocks, I am finally able to start defending my home, my family and myself from you know what...as i am  sure as F not going over that whole "thing" again without a fight.
I saw the list of gun shops and some of the results i got on my searches are not there, is there a reason for not recommending places like NOVA Armory?
I'm @ Fairfax, any recommendations for gun shops in the area? Willing to move around if needed to get a good selection and no "woke" shit.
thanks and gb

Welcome to the front lines.  There are a lot of good gun shops in the area and it's still easy to get a CCW but those days may be limited now that the blue rot has taken hold in NOtVA and Richmond.

It's still a lot less expensive to buy online and go through a local FFL.

Ryan at Outdoor Arms in Burke, VA

I used to patronize other shops in the area, but they seemingly raised their transfer prices/etc without really any improvement in the quality of their service. I wish them success, but I'm determined that I'm only using Ryan's home FFL going forward.

He's also the only FFL I've dealt with that offers very generous pricing for multiple gun transfers, wish I had known earlier.

Now he's a home FFL, so he doesn't really stock guns like any other store would - he's mainly a transfer FFL and a SOT if you get NFA items.

I don't have a gun store recommendation but, I would suggest getting your conceal handgun permit. It is easy to do and exempts you from the one handgun a month rule that took effect last year. All you need is a completed form, payment(not sure what your jurisdiction charges, mine charges $15) and proof of training(DD214 if you are prior military or if you don't have mil. experience the minimum requirement is a in person hunter safety course). The permit is good for 5 years and can be renewed by mail. I encourage you to look at the process your jurisdiction has for applying and do it.

Im now looking for CC classes and making an appointment to submit my application online before July 12th since they start doing it in person by then.
Thanks for all the replies, also looking into buying online and doing FFL transfer, I'm researching the NFA deal too, I would not mind having a machine gun at home :)

Consider driving an hour and coming out to one of the Culpeper County 2A groups activities; a great place to network, train and find some additonal quality vendors.

Finished course, now to Fairfax next week to submit application, I gotta look it up but, I assume I can buy a gun now and then after I get my permit I am no longer restricted to one a month correct? Asking cause it seems like permit can take up to 90 days?

Thanks again for all the info shared!

Asking cause it seems like permit can take up to 90 days? WONG! Once submitted, the courts have 45 days by law, to issue the permit or deny it and tell you why it was denied. If they go over 45 days, you can get a defacto permit from the courts until they make up there mind. Permit Process

Thanks again for all the info shared!

Cool.


OP, Cabela's in Gainesville (Prince William Co.) also sells firearms,
but I don't know if they've replenished their stock since the run on
guns and ammo that started last year.
