Virginia Gun Owners Forum Celebrates One Year ^ | 16 March, 2010 | VGOF

Virginia - -( March 1st, 2010 marked the one year anniversary of Virginia Gun Owners Forum (VGOF), an online forum community at

After the 2008 elections and the democrat controlled senate many gun owners feared that their ability to purchase and own firearms would be legislatively restricted, so Rick Sandlin began work on VGOF – with the vision of creating a one stop shop for all information relating to firearm ownership in Virginia.

Over 1200 individual users frequent VGOF, a bulletin board based forum to discuss anything from the latest Bushmaster rifle to state & national gun politics. As you browse through the forums you’ll find a general discussion section, range & gunsmith reviews, as well as eager young marksmen looking for advice and war veterans eager to give it. As a user you can profit from many experts in gun law, gun safety, reloading, and general gun knowledge.

Most of the information is pertinent to gun owners local to Virginia and VGOF even includes a calendar of local gun shows and gun-related events.

VGOF also serves as a first rate warning center for any infringement on your gun rights under the Second Amendment. Members will report in warnings from the National Rifle Association (NRA), the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL), and from main stream media outlets. In any given day at the VGOF, several articles will be posted, digested and discussed amongst the members.

The members are what really makes the VGOF community something special. There are members from all walks of life; democrats, independents, republicans, veterans, soldiers, gun store owners, gunsmiths, safety instructors, business owners and individuals. These members band together to create a place to grow their knowledge base and share experiences regarding firearms and firearm ownership.

Finally, if you were thinking this was just an online community you would be quite mistaken. VGOF features a healthy roster of community events, such as meet & greets, open carry picnics, and other outings for members and their friends. Additionally, the online marketplace allows for members to connect with each other to buy sell & trade firearms through the sites marketplace.

So consider stopping by and saying hello to Rick & the members, diving into the generous amount of online content, and learning a few new tricks from the fellow gun owners on the site.

How does the Old Dominion stack up against North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Delaware on the gun law scale?

I’m a gun owner who wants to leave New Jersey for a more conservative, pro-gun state.

VA is very pro gun and by far the best of the three you mentioned

- no registration, open carry for everyone everywhere except for schools, federal buildings, state parks (still being resolved), easy purchase of guns for non-felons (just a form/check for record w/State Police, and generally very easy to get CCW permit if your record is clean. Local county court approves CCW’s, some get approved in 1 week! Most don’t take fingerprints.

COME ON DOWN! You’ll love it here after the Peoples Republic of NJ.
