    Thank You, Pennsylvania!

    Mailed off my non-resident application on the 7th, it was issued on the 12th and returned to me by the 15th! Faster than I would have believed possible, and now I can carry pretty much anywhere I travel/visit without worrying about which side of a state line I'm on. Even my non-carrying .5 is pleased to know her fella can carry without worry now.

    You do realize that is the last one you'll get? They are changing the law and it will go in effect real soon. Unless of course you want to GO THERE to get it.

    No, the law isn't changing. That article that was posted a while back was full of misinterpretations. There is nothing in our statutes regarding licensing that requires non-res applicants to apply in person.
    Some Sheriffs seem to think there is, but they're wrong.

    Can you provide some more info that shows we can still get non resident permits through the mail after the new law goes into effect?

    I can provide info that shows that PA law does not require non-res applicants to apply in person. There really isn't a new law. It was passed in 2005. It must be implemented by the end of March 2011, so there should be no problems for anyone until next year.

    HOUSE BILL 1717 P.N. 2918

    There really shouldn't be any problems after March of next year either.

    The relevant change:
    21 (4) The sheriff [may also] shall require a photograph of
    22 the licensee on the license. The photograph shall be in a
    23 form compatible with the Commonwealth Photo Imaging Network.
    The language of the statute was changed from "may also", to "shall" "require a photograph."
    It simply requires that a photo of the licensee be on all LTCFs. A digital photo, sent online by out of state applicants, would be "in a
    form compatible with the Commonwealth Photo Imaging Network."
    There's nothing that will prevent Sheriffs from issuing non-res LTCFs basically the same way they have been. Unfortunately, some of them don't seem to understand.

    I hadthe same experience. Sent and returned within 1 1/2 weeks. Sent my application to Centre County. Was able to add 4 states to my CC list.
