West Virginia Firearms Update

House Bill 4145 makes WV a constitutional carry state. This means, under certain conditions, a person may legally carry a concealed firearm without a permit. However, if you want or need reciprocity, you must still go through the permit process. Besides, training is a good thing!

West Virginia UPDATE March 4, 2016:

The new version of the NRA Basic Pistol Course, needed to obtain a concealed carry permit in West Virginia, is online at The cost is $60 for the online training, payable through PayPal. You’ll need a Windows or Apple computer and a connection to the Internet. Then course is also supported on many hand held devices.

Although I am a certified instructor, I am taking the course as a student to get the full student experience. I’ll report later how it all went. Remember, under this new system, you will need to take the online course and see an instructor for the hands on and range portions of the certification.
