Sadly, permits are available in VA but I live so close to MD and DC it's not worth the trouble. A few miles in the wrong direction and you could be in big trouble.
It is wise to find out exactly what the laws are for your state. I would ask an instructor, lawyer, or read the law. The police probably know, but don't be too sure.
A friend of mine was nearly arrested in FL for carrying a large knife concealed. The police didn't think a CCP covered knives only guns. He spent an hour on the side of road while they looked it up.
The attitude of the police and citizens varies greatly by state as well. In FL it was considered normal to own a gun. In Md they consider you a right wing nut, crazy dangerous person, or a criminal.
