Virginia CHP Course
NRA Range 
11250 Waples Mill Rd.

FFT's Virginia Concealed Carry Course satisfies Virginia's CHP class requirement and focuses on the details of Virginia law, the rules and regulations surrounding concealed carry in the state of Virginia, and other important topics students need to understand prior to submitting an application for a Virginia Concealed Handgun Permit.

If you're ready to accept the responsibility of concealed carrying a firearm on a daily basis, this 3-hour class will explain everything you need to know before applying for your CHP, including the application process itself. Course topics include Virginia-specific firearm laws and restrictions, self-defense law, prohibited and restricted areas, situational awareness, brandishing, and reciprocity.

Price is $65 per adult.

Virginia state law does not require CHP applicants to shoot in order to prove competency so no range time is required. However, all students are welcome to shoot after class anyway and receive a short lesson on the fundamentals of pistol shooting.

Firearms and 50 rounds of .22 caliber ammunition can be provided for an additional $20 (other calibers available upon request but subject to price increase).
