If you have a CHP and buying a gun at a gun shop, do you still have to do the instant background check?

..and you can buy more than one a month/30days/31days or whatever it is.

There is still the one/month rule isn't it?

If you have a CHP you can purchase more than one handgun/month:

VA code- 18.2-308.2:2

2. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to....

h. A person who holds a valid Virginia permit to carry a concealed handgun

...however I suspect they will be watching carefully. Many years ago I miscounted the days and was off by 1 when a purchased a handgun and they ran the NICS check--I had to come back the next day to pick up my new firearm.

As stated, you still have to go through the check, but my experience has been the process takes seconds. Your name flags very quickly as a "good guy", even when the system is running slow.

My checks take less than 5 mins. I did have one hicuup when my local dealer put in my birthdate incorrectly. He came back and said I was denied, I almost choked.... He then laughed and said it was his fault, he put my birthdate in wrong, and I had to sign the corrected portion of the forms.

It usually takes longer for the FFL dealer to ring me up than it takes for the background check.
