    I believe that you can obtain a non-resident PA permit. Do you have a NJ handgun permit? Or go for the gold and get a FL non resident permit that has reciprocity with 33 other states.

    Since NJ has a CC law you would need a NJ CC Permit to get a PA non-resident permit.

    Go to Handgunlaw.us and click on PA for information. You could also go for VA or Fla non-resident permit. Fla would give the most states but also has a large back-up of applications.

    You could move to a state that actually allows you your rights under the constitution

    To be covered in PA, get the FL permit. It's worth the wait. The UT permit is less expensive, works in PA, but FL won't honor a non-resident permit.

    Tried to get the PA non-resident permit. Refused because I don't have a NJ carry permit. Nobody gets a NJ permit unless you are a big contributor to Corzine. I have the UT and FL non-resident permits, so I can carry in PA anyhow. Just wanted to get the PA permit because I'm planning to move there from NJ the day after I retire.

    If it has a signature on it. Also if you were ever in the military your DD 214 will work.


    And, Florida is finally starting to catch up on their backlog, but I don't think either Florida or Utah are making their "60 day be law" deadlines yet. More like 90 days...

    Florida is definitely the way to go. Where are you in NJ? Contact me via PM or e-mail (see my profile) and I'll give you all the "insider" info.

    Adios,

    As two others have mentioned, the FL permit is going to work for ya'.
    The added prize here is that FL is one of about six states that will only recognize permits from states where you're a resident....BUT...if you have the FL permit, you'll be good to go when you visit here as a non-resident, and you couldn't find a better 'winter escape'.
