Concealed weapons are weapons which are kept hidden on one's person, or under one's control not accessible to view. Lawful practice of concealed carry in Virginia requires a Concealed Carry Permit, which requires the completion of an approved firearms safety course to prove handgun competency. We understand that it may be difficult for the average citizen to find training or classes that are inexpensive. For this reason, Orange County Sheriff’s Office and Orange County Parks & Recreation have partnered to offer concealed carry classes at a minimum cost to Orange County Citizens and to those who work in Orange County. The training consists of education in the classroom to include safety, laws, shooting fundamentals, storage, maintenance, and legal considerations. Students will also have to demonstrate safe weapon handling on the range, and must bring their own firearm and ammunition. Instructors are Sheriff’s Office staff and DCJS Certified Firearms Instructors. Completion of this training course DOES NOT grant a concealed carry permit. Participant must still apply for the permit through clerk of the circuit court of the county or city in which he or she resides. For more information about concealed carry, visit: Resident Concealed Handgun Permits - Virginia State Police. Registration for the December 10, 2022 class must be completed no later than Wednesday, November 23, 2022 (at noon due to holiday). To register, complete a registration packet and return it to Orange County Parks & Recreation. Please note that the waiver page of this packet must be notarized. The $30 fee is due at the time of registration. Participants must provide their own firearm and manufacturer approved ammunition for the class.
