App went into the mail on June 5. License issued June 8. Envelope postmarked June 11. In my mailbox June 14. That is what I call a quick turn around. I may have cheated a little though. Besides a copy of my Alabama DL and a copy of my Alabama Pistol Permit I also included a copy of my FFL. I figured that would do more good than them calling either of the references I put on the app. They don't know either one of them, but they do know the initials ATF which means I have had a background check by the FBI. Whatever, I have it and I don't have to worry about whether my New Hampshire NR permit is good in PA. I am covered in every state we will go through this summer except Maryland. On I-81 that looks to be a distance of less than 20 miles. Since we will be in a van and I won't be driving the firearms will be unloaded while rolling through the last mile of WV and the pistols put in a Center of Mass in-car gun safe. The ammo will be in another locked container behind the back seat. When we cross into PA everything comes back out.

I second QK's comment.
Glad it came so fast but it seems most folks do get them pretty darned quick.

Took me six months to get my NY permit... 1 week for PA once I had that
on the new permit...

You think that 20 miles on I-81 is inconveniet, I freaking live here.
Glad to hear the quick turnarounds are still occurring. I sent my application off earlier this week after seeing the announcement that some PA officials might not be recognizing the NH Non-Res license any longer.
Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
