    PA concealed carry license

    I am not clear on the need for a picture on an application for a non-resident CCL. It looks as though I don't.

    Would not like it to bounce back because of this.




    Thanks Bill

    I got mine about two years ago and the picture was optional. I think they charged me five bucks for it.

    Just got mine about a month ago. No pic required. The actual permit you will get has a place for a pic, but printed in the space is "no picture required" (or something similar).

    I happened to be in PA when I got my PA non-resident permit. The photo was optional, but without it you needed to have a picture ID with you as well as the LTCF whenever you carried.

    I'm from PA and they take your picture when you apply for the resident permit. I find that odd that we need the pic, but non-residents don't. But I find a lot odd (lol).

    I was a resident, and actually still own a home there and am currently in PA. My CWP is PA although I now have a Georgia DL. I'm guessing that the PA-CWP is no longer valid but does anyone know?

    I find it odd that the permit is a flimsy piece of 20# paper.

    PA has not yet instituted a Statewide form for licenses.
    The law is in place for one but it's still in development.

    Some counties have been doing laminated photo licenses and some
    counties still do a plain paper license.

    My county gave me both.

    Maybe it's just me, but I'd want my pic on it...eliminates a lot of potential problems. IMHO

    You think that is odd, in VA a resident permit does not require photo's, but a non-resident must provide 2 photo's with their permit application.
