That's exactly what I did -- I walked into a gun shop and struck up a conversation and berated him with 100 questions about concealed carry, Oregon gun laws, ammo, everything. I did make it worth his while since I purchased a handgun! But I learned a ton in that hour, and I was sold on CCL.
It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.
Just stop in at your closest PA Sheriff Dept. and you can pick up some specific information right there.
You might as well take advantage of the fact that PA. is Shall Issue and get yourself a License To Carry.
Here is mine for Allegheny County
Allegheny County Sheriff's Office - Firearms Division
Go here for easy to understand information. It might be a bit outdated
Scroll down the page to CARRY for info on a Sportsman's License.
It was $12.50 Pennsylvania: State Firearms Laws
You might as well just go and get your PA License To Carry Firearms though.
Make sure you have your two acceptable forms of ID and 2 references WITH addresses and phone numbers.
Call your local County Sheriff and find out what the fee is and take the exact amount in cash.
Make sure you don't have any outstanding warrants or tickets cause they will snatch you up right there when they are running your computer background check to process your LTC app.

Hello fellow Luzerne County resident.
The permit can be obtained at the Wilkes Barre court house, specifically the annex across river street (the building by the parking lot). Bring exact cash.
AFAIK hunting is with a non semi automatic during hunting season only. The rules of not having a loaded weapon touch a motor vehicle apply etc. I believe they are treated the same as rifles in this case. However to conceal it you would need the permit.
The hunting stuff I am not completely sure of, but the location to get the permit is where I went.
Was directed to the Sheriffs Office.
