If you want to know more about how reciprocity agreements affect your ability to carry in other states, please contact us, and we'll do our best to help you figure out which resident and/or non-resident permit(s) may best meet your individual out-of-state carrying needs. 

Our UTAH/Multi-state/BASIC class will provide the training necessary to apply for a Utah Non-resident concealed firearms permit. The Utah Non-resident permit adds reciprocity with three (3) additional states (Delaware, Washington state, and Wisconsin) for those with a VA permit alone. Plus, it provides reciprocity in several states for residents of DC and MD. You may wish to consider obtaining one or more other non-resident permits, as well, in order to increase (or overlap) your reciprocity even more.

We do concealed carry training for DC and/or MD, too! Our UTAH/Multi-state/BASIC and ADVANCED concealed carry classes can help to fulfill some or all of the requirements for DC and/or MD permits.

At DISCOVER SHOOTING, we teach both experienced and inexperienced students.  We offer group and individual (1:1) class settings.

We also help our students with the required paperwork for permit applications, because it can be daunting to make sure all the documents you need are included. Plus, we’ll help with the paperwork, even for folks who didn’t (or didn’t need to) do their training with us, for one reason or another — e.g., those who currently serve or previously served, in the military, etc.

Check details here on our website, then contact us at DISCOVER SHOOTING to discuss how we can fulfill your firearms training needs!

Located in Northern VA, primarily we serve students who are residents of VA, DC, MD, PA and WV, but we also can serve students from other states, by special arrangement.  We travel to do training, as well.  Ask us for details!

The next Nation's Gun Show will be held AT the dulles expo center (chantilly, va), on JUNE 7, 8, and 9, 2019!


These are the hours that the show will be open:


Friday, JUNE 7:  3pm8pm

Saturday, JUNE 8:  9am5pm

Sunday, JUNE 9:  10am5pm


Please come and see us at our table at the gun show.  While there, you can sign up for a class — and possibly receive an exclusive “Gun Show Discount” — or, just stop by to say, "hi" to us! 


You'll find our table along the middle of the back wall – we're located near the men's and ladies' rooms doors.  From the main entrance, look all the way across the hall to the back wall, and you should see the very tall display with a banner for UTAH/Multi-state Concealed Carry Classes, a large U.S. Concealed Carry Map, and other banners high above our table! 


NOTE:  We have one of the tallest displays at the show, so our table should be fairly easy to find.



We offer an exclusive "Gun Show Discount" on our UTAH/Multi-state/BASIC classes, for those who register – in person at our table at the Nation's Gun Show, whenever the show is held at the Dulles Expo Center, in Chantilly VA. 


DISCOUNTS on some of our classes also regularly are available to those who currently serve, or previously served, in the MILITARY, as well as for those who are (or have been) LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS (yes, some want civilian permits, particularly if they did not serve long enough to qualify under “LEOSA”), FIREFIGHTERS, EMS PERSONNEL, TEACHERS, STUDENTS, VCDL (Virginia Citizen’s Defense League) members, and MSI (Maryland Shall Issue) members, and in certain other cases.  In some cases, family members may be eligible for discounts, too!  Other types of discounts also are possible – e.g., group discounts, couples' discounts, etc.  Ask us for more information!
