Good Day,

Im a VA resident, member of Virginia Civilian Defense League and would like some advice/guidance. I have applied as a business owner for my wear and carry license and have my interview with the MD State Troopers next week; I would love some tips on the interview. I am a NRA instructor and a MD HQL instructor and applied under the G&S of having a cash and carry business plus carrying thousands of dollars of equipment as both a pro-photographer as well as when I am conducting firearms instruction.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Welcome and best of luck going through the process. For the interview, don't expand on questions you are asked, just answer the question and wait for the next one. Otherwise it's pretty straight forward. As for your permit, your situation sounds similar to mine, with you having several G&S reasons. I received a restricted permit, and appealed my restrictions to the HPRB and received an unrestricted permit, based on my activities overlapping each other. Once you get your restricted permit, I would encourage you to appeal to the HPRB for an unrestricted.
