I'm happy for you B.N. Welcome to the VA club. I know that wait period seems like years
I'm just glad I live in a county that has a relatively easy process.
Was getting yours a hassle? I have heard in NOVA that some anti-gun judges/clerks like to make you wait the max amount of time before approval. In Montgomery county, all I had to do was fill out the form online, print the certificate from my online "concealed carry class," and pay my 15 bucks to the county clerks office. 1 month later they called me to come pick it up.
