    Who told you not to check self defense?

  3. My son-in-law who just got his NY permit. Someone told him that when he was applying for the NY permit. I want to carry my pistol in PA for more than hunting, I want to carry it when I travel camping in and through PA so I want to check the box for personal defense but he thought I should check for hunting and collecting only. I am curious what others have checked who have received a PA permit.

    My PA permit is from McKean Co. where most of my family resides and have for about 150+ years, mine is similar to a drivers license with photo, and in block 6. Reason To Carrry states; Self Defense. Now I go to the Sherrifs office to renew mine, it takes all of about 10 minutes. It has my NYS address but nothing else to indicate it is Non-Resident and is identical to my previous "Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms"

    For your PA License check Self Defense. I've heard of people who have checked ALL of the boxes and on the license will be printed "Self Defense". Self defense option is just fine.

  6. Centre County is a paper slip with no photo.Many people I know put down hunting & self defense and get the "Self-Defense" which is fine.Just have a valid PA hunting license and carry a revolver no semi-automatics allowed while hunting in PA.

  7. Thanks, I am checking self-defense, hunting & fishing, target shooting, and gun collecting. That should cover it!

    Interesting. Chester County's Sheriff's page says the following:

    License to carry a firearm will be issued to Chester County residents only, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF: out of state sworn police officers with proper identification.

    SHERIFF: Firearms Permit Application

    Is that legal?

    No it is not. By statute she must accept applications from and SHALL ISSUE to Chester County residents AND any non-PA resident that has a home state license if such state issues such license.

    (b) Place of application.--An individual who is 21 years of age or older may apply to a sheriff for a license to carry a firearm concealed on or about his person or in a vehicle within this Commonwealth. If the applicant is a resident of this Commonwealth, he shall make application with the sheriff of the county in which he resides or, if a resident of a city of the first class, with the chief of police of that city.

    ...

    (ix) A resident of another state who does not possess a current license or permit or similar document to carry a firearm issued by that state if a license is provided for by the laws of that state, as published annually in the Federal Register by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms of the Department of the Treasury under 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(19) (relating to definitions).

    Sheriff Welsh...being President of the PA Sheriff's Assoc...should know this.

    I was in Lancaster today. I went to the Sheriff's office and had my permit in twenty minutes. Came on a plastic card.
