Sell it or give it away to someone within the state of Virginia who can legally possess a firearm. No paperwork required, though you can record who you sold/gave the firearm to. Intrastate transfers are not usually regulated unless you live in a state with prohibitive gun laws. Alternatively, you can also sell it online to people in other states via equipment exchanges on forums and other means.
