    In PA as far as the law goes, you can OC without a permit BUT that can be a double edged sword in my opinion.
    also- Pennsylvania will not honor Florida CCW Permits issued to out of state residents of Florida
    THAT came from

    There are some articles on this point. One argument is that it is legal since there is no law that prohibits it, I've never read the statute on that point when I live in Pittsburgh.

    I thought PA was a preemption state? Why can't you carry in Philly as you can in Pitt?

    Philly is a city of the first class so you must have a license OC or CC to carry there.....

    now OC is legal everywhere else in PA and as long as you have a license from any other state you can car carry......

    Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association has a wealth of info awesome flyer you can print out from there http://paopencarry.org/pdfs/Pennsylvania_Gun_Rights.pdf

    Since you are from NJ I would get a non resident PA permit, only $20 and PA can be a pain in the ass for other states non resident.

    Non-resident Florida CWPs are honored in PA.

    From the AG's site:
    Note: It has come to the attention of the Office of Attorney General that there has been confusion over the applicability of Pennsylvania's reciprocal privileges with regard to the residency status of an individual who has been issued a valid license/permit. It is the position of the Office of Attorney General that recognition within Pennsylvania is based on the issuance to an individual of a valid license/permit by the reciprocal contracting state, and not on the license/permit holder's place of residence.

    State law requires a license for OC in "cities of the first class."

    An applicant for PA non-res. LTCF must have a license/permit from their home state if such is available. N.J. does issue permits, just not very often. So, a N.J. resident must have a N.J. permit in order to be eligible for a PA non-res. LTCF.

    You don't need a permit to OC in PA on foot. Just make sure you have your FL CCL in your car and in Philly.

    The part I highlighted is incorrect. Pa does in fact honor Florida licenses to out of state residents, as per the PA attorney General.
    One more step and it's on!
