    Centre County is wonderful to work with! I moved and sent in my new address. Well, a couple of days later I got my permit with the new address and a yellow sticky note telling me that I had to submit $5 for the address change! It is wonderful that they kept it simple and sent the permit without having to send a letter, have me submit the $5, send the permit and submit the signature portion. Wonderful bunch to work with!! I wish all were as good/easy to work with.

    not all county sheriffs approve out of state residents LTCF, very few counties do that and soon there will be no counties that will unless you come in person. That helps fear of a mistaken identity.

    Not true. Most Sheriffs will issue non-res LTCFs, as they are required by law to do. The few that refuse to issue non-res LTCFs are in violation of Commonwealth law.

    and soon there will be no counties that will unless you come in person. That helps fear of a mistaken identity.
    As I pointed out earlier in this thread, any Sheriff who believes that they may only issue to applicants who apply in person is mistaken.
    Fear of mistaken identity? Huh?

    All right, I've been wondering about this for a while; are non-resident permits for people who live in a state without reciprocity? For instance, I live in WV. As we have reciprocity with PA is there any reason at all I would need a non-resident permit for PA? I'm only twenty minutes south, and drive through PA every time I want to go to the nearest Cabelas.

Even my non-carrying .5 is pleased to know her fella can carry without worry now.
    You're welcome and congrats!

    Since PA has reciprocity with WV, you do not need to get a non-resident PA permit. My situation is like yours, but reversed. I live in PA, but work in WV, KY and VA. Since all three have reciprocity with PA, I'm good to go.

    However, I do sometimes travel through OH, so I'm in need of a non-resident permit there..

    The only reason I can think of would be if a PA non-res LTCF would give you reciprocity with a state, or states, that WV doesn't have an agreement with, but PA does. OTOH, they're cheap, and if you spend time in PA, having a PA issued license could help you out if you ever encounter a PA LEO who isn't up to speed on reciprocity.

    Just got my PA non-res too, mailed the app on Monday and got the permit in the mail on Saturday. God bless em, I'm thinking of moving there.....

    The only other 2 non-res permits I'm chasing now are Connecticut (because I work there) and Florida, cause it really covers a lot of the country.

    I just got Utah and Florida. That gives me about 34 states, give or take a couple, that I'm legal to carry in. Utah gives one more than Florida and is half the cost.

    I have to chime in with a BIG thank you to Centre County PA. I also received my CC from them in less than a week!
    Maybe someone from the state of IL will read these posts

    Sent my wife's non-resident application off to Centre County Sheriff on 8 April 2010 and it was approved on 12 April 2010. Received back in the mail on 16 April 2010. Now that is fast by any standard.
