    York County, PA, CCP

    Hello,

    I may be relocating to York County, PA from Vermont for work. I've got my non-res PA CCP from Center County. How difficult is it to convert to a resident permit in York County?

    AFAIK, your non-resident LTCF (License To Carry Firearms) is just fine until it expires. You should check The Pennsylvania Firearms Owners Association at pafoa.org. Lots of great Pa. specific info.

    To get a resident LTCF you just have to apply with the Sheriff of your county. They have 45 days to either issue a license or a denial. Most counties in Pa. don't take anywhere near the full 45 days.

    Good to know that my non-res license is probably good until it expires. Does anyone know if the sheriff in York county leans pro- or anti-?

    You could probley go in and get it changed from Non Res to Res. I don't see why not.

    Knowing how ass backwards some state and federal government policies are, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if you were to have to re-apply and go through another wait. Thats how it goes when your spending someone else's (ours) money!

    Nope. In Pa. the county Sheriff is responsible for issuing LTCFs. So, if you move to a different county, you have to apply to your new Sheriff. However, as a resident, you don't have to do anything until your current license expires.

    The OP's non-resident license was issued by the Center County Sheriff. He'll be moving to York County.

    Yeah, they call it a renewal but you do have to go through the whole process every five years. Most counties don't make you wait very long though. My county, for instance, takes about 20 minutes if you apply at the Sheriffs Office in the County Courthouse. If you apply at your local satellite Sheriff Station it might take 3 or 4 days.

    Unfortunately, some counties make you wait the full 45 days allowed to them under the law. A few even claim (illegally) that they have 45 business days.

    VTFatB*d,
    I'll ask around and see what I can find out about York County wait times and such.

    You should not need to do anything until renewal time. Then change the type from non resident to resident.

    It could be worse - one county south of York and he'd be out of luck (for carrying) in MD.

    Can you elaborate a little? I haven't finalized the decision to move, and more information might be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    Go ahead and move

    I believe you said york county right. There is more to york county than just york. Stay out of york and its all good. If and when you do re apply it goes quick. I have heard of some going in and waiting for it.
    Others just a week or two. Come down and look around. Just try to
    avoid york city.

    If I head down, I'll be working in Hanover, so no worries (I think). What's up with York city? How's Hanover?
