    If you only have a NY CCW then it appears yes, carrying would be illegal.

    Typically this is why people pick up a Florida non-resident permit...widely accepted and from what I hear easy to get. My home state of Virginia also has a favorable non-resident permit but choosing Florida gets you both FL and VA whereas choosing VA would get you almost everything the FL one does except FL itself.

    You could get a NH for $20 for four years and it cover's PA.

    I'm not 100 % but I hear if you got a permit for another state. You can carry in PA in your car. But You cannot carry outside of Your car. Your car is a extension of Your house.

    Please check and print if You find it. www.handgunlaw.us

    True, but FL does get you a heck of a lot more states than NH.

    I agree 100%, I have FL also. NH fill out one page and photo copy your permit and send it off with $20 and wait a few weeks.
    FL $117 if I remember right, fingerprints and a lot more paperwork and wait 60 to 90 days. Well worth getting either of them. I have used both of them when I travel.

    I found it in The Traveler's Guide to the Firearm Laws of the Fifty States. I'm not to sure of some of the info I found it this book. Your better checking the PA State Police site.

    Get a PA permit. Takes a week by mail.
    No photo-No prints-just a couple of photo copies, a check and a signature.

    Not true. PA honors all 50 states permits while in your vehicle only.

    Reference 6106 (11) of the PA code. Link

    i think that only applies to transporting; i think if you want to actually carry it on you, you need to have a permit/license that's from a state with reciprocity with PA; that includes non-resident permits. carrying in a vehicle is considered "concealed," and as was stated, PA doesn't recognize NY permits for CC.

    i just think it's a good idea to have multiple permits, anyway. i've just sent away for my NH license, and i'm waiting for a course within driving distance to qualify for my UT and FL licenses.

    No I'm pretty sure it means you can have a loaded gun in your car, as long as it stays in the car. For some reason that link doesn't state the second part of the law

    "regardless of whether a reciprocity agreement exists between the Commonwealth and the state under the section 6109".

    Get your FL permit, it will come in handy in many places.

    Stay armed...FL helps...stay safe!

    you are correct:

    Carrying a handgun in a vehicle requires a valid PA LTCF or a carry license from ANY other state.

    ref: 18 PACS 6106
    "carrying" means carrying.
