Will a firearms endorsement allow me to carry concealed?

FAQ Organization

No. Unless otherwise exempted by law, to carry concealed in the course of his/her duties, an individual must have in his/her possession a valid registration with a firearms endorsement; permission of employer; and a valid concealed handgun permit.

Locksmiths and employees of an Electronic Security Services Business with the exception of alarm respondents are exempt from the requirement to have a firearm endorsement when such person carries with him a valid concealed handgun permit issued in accordance with 18.2-308 of the Code of Virginia.
