WV Concealed Handgun License Questions
I have some questions and I hope that some of you can help.
I understand that a license/permit is no longer needed to carry a handgun in West Virginia for people who are allowed to legally own guns and are over 21. The WV Concealed Handgun License still exists for reciprocity purposes.
- Is the WV CHL available to out of state applicants? The application form has a place state of residence and does not indicate whether residency is required.
- If the CHL is available to out of state applicants, are there specific sheriff's departments that are recommended for submitting an application (or some that are not recommended)?
The reason I am asking is because the WV CHL is valid in Minnesota because your laws are substantially similar to theirs and I am seeking a way to lawfully carry in MN without traveling to North Dakota to get one of their permits.
