DC Concealed Carry Training in Virginia

DC Concealed Carry Training in Virginia – Indeed! If you travel to DC, you’ll need a DC Permit as DC does not honor any other state carry permits.

DC Concealed Carry Training in VirginiaThe Good News is you no longer have to provide a valid reason to carry in DC. In legal terms they’ve moved from a “may issue” to a “shall issue” jurisdiction in early October 2017.

Even Better News…

“But I don’t live in DC.”

Pursuant to the DC regulations for Concealed Carry…

You must live “Within the United States and a license to carry a pistol concealed upon his or her person issued by the lawful authorities of any State or subdivision of the United States;”


“Within the United States and meets all registration and licensing requirements pursuant to the Act;”

No state issued carry permit is valid while in DC. The only way to legally conceal carry in DC is with a DC permit.

Therefore, it’s necessary that if you travel to DC, and wish to carry, you’ll need a DC Carry Permit.
