I was told you pretty much can just show up and get one as long as you have your CT permit/license...I'm going to go that route in Harris when we go to look at the property.

The other question I had -- Is that I've read up on the law and the LCM provision.

Magazines per what I've been told aren't constituted as firearms or parts there-of.


So If I wanted something bigger than 10, it's doable as long as I leave it in PA, yes?
I'm confused. The part in red, are you referring to CT or to PA? As far as I know PA doesn't prohibit so called LCM's. Our state laws governing large capacity magazines does not apply while outside of CT. That means that while in PA you can have as many magazines as you want and they can be in any capacity you want. Take 33rnd Glock magazines if you want to PA. You can even buy magazines in PA if you wanted to. You would be violating the CT law if you brought back into this state any magazines holding more than 10 rounds that you haven't declared to the state of CT.

Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.

Just watch out for the burning coal shafts around Honesdale, Carbondale and Union Dale. Don't need to be falling into any sinkholes, burning or otherwise...

Darn! I wonder if any of the Payes are still in Union Dale or even sweet Malia McGinnis, whatever became of her? Mmmmm!

That's what I'm asking.


Thanks again SB!

Thank you!  Perfect, about 40min from some family on the NJ side.  Will be taking a trip there next week.

You will need to provide "reasons" for carrying there. They also ask for 2 references, can't remember if they need to be PA residents or not, though

Maybe different counties / sheriffs in PA have different requirements....my wife and I got our PA LTCF in Berks county (Reading), no references were required.  We were asked why are we requesting the LTCF and I said, we are thinking of moving to the free state of PA and would be looking for a home and we like to have protection driving around....the sheriff says OK, just make sure you know the laws traveling from CT through NY and NJ. LTCF was issued in 10 minutes, I think the sheriff did a background check and that was it.

An old thread, but have not seen any recent discussions on the topic.

Has anyone had any recent experience with the PA Non Resident Permit application? In particular the Doylestown location?

It appears that the process has not changed, but thought I would check.

TIA

You essentially need to go to Scranton. - Other boarder towns won’t issue in my experience.

I went to Doylestown around two months ago and the process was smooth. Brought my form pre filled with info, paid my fee in cash and walked out with my permit in 15 minutes.
They will not issue you a non resident permit if the pistol permit from your state has any restrictions I.e. premesis only, target / hunting etc. It has to be full carry. They saw my ct permit and werent sure if it was unrestricted so they asked another deputy on their staff who confirmed the ct permit doesnt have restrictions on full carry and they issued my non res permit.
