Re: Question: Need a Reliable rifle.

Thank you I will probably go for a WASR 10/63 or an N-PAP, and see if i can get a stamped to lighten the load. In terms of price point sub 1500 is fine with me. When I was growing up my grandfather used to bring an old SKS with him when we went camping, and it was cheap rifle that worked even throug...

Question: Need a Reliable rifle.

First off finally got my CHL ... only took DPS 4 months. Anyway I'm in the market to buy a reliable rifle for when I go camping/backpacking. Please someone feel free to call me an idiot if I am way off track on this but I'm thinking more like an AR, AK, SKS type gun so I have a good reliable self de...

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

Thank you for all the responses. I did get to speak to Mr. Cotton via phone and it sounds like I should be ok to get my CHL.

I'm still open to anymore weigh in if anyone believes differently.

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

After reading the agreement, The agreement does not state that the charges where to be dropped after 150 hours, but because that was a verbal agreement that they would be dropped as per request of the accuser the charges where then later dismissed as reflected on the county record previously posted....

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

From a little looking around it looks like the max is 12 months. Im still checking to find an official source Edit: So It looks like the max for that charge is 1 year. So the real question is what does it mean to be "Truly Dismissed". The county record states dismissed (screenshot above), when I cal...

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

To the link above:

the plea was Nolo Contendre to 18.2-57(A) but I did not serve confinement.


Reading my plea agreement under the section "Sentence" it states "Deferred".

To: Mr. Charles L. Cotton
If you are still practicing I will be happy to visit with you to go over the details of this.

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

Here is a snapshot of the county record. http://s29.postimg.org/gd6pwxwdz/Final_Disposition.jpg screen shots I guess I was under the impression I was under deferred adjudication until 150h then the charges where dismissed. here is a web link to the Virginia law: http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp5...

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

Welcome to the forum. Is there somewhere I can get a firm yes/no before I drop 200-300 on the CHL? Only DPS can give you a firm yes/no and I never heard of them giving a firm yes without an application and fee. Ask ten people and get a dozen opinions. Here's one more. I think you have to wait until...

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

There are no other issues that will effect my eligibility, this was an isolated incident. Don't even have a traffic violation past this mistake.

Re: Need Help Check elegibility.

I was thinking of just going into a local police station and asking with my court papers in-hand but I was not sure if they would help me.
