I thought the fingerprinting submission for FBI background check was required of the ccw applicant in all states that issue ccw licenses; however I recently read this is not required for the Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms. I wonder if there are any others...

Indeed, no prints taken here for CCW application. I did tho have to do it for my FL non-res.

I think overall it is the exception rather than the rule, not having to do them.

It's an option at the County Sheriff's discretion in Montana. Mine doesn't require fingerprints.

Up to the individual county in Virginia

Most don't fingerprint. However, a bill recently in the state legilature would have removed the option altogether. Strangely, the most vocal opponent of removing the requirement was a county sheriff who doesn't even require it in his own county!

Go figure...

Yes for MA

No for NH

Note on NH NR - for NRs NH relies on the bg check that was done for your home/other state CCW that you must send a copy of to get your NH NR. That is how they turn them around in ~7 days (including USMail both ways).

Actually, it is up to the county in Virginia. A county may require fingerprints for the initial CWP application investigation (e.g., Chesterfield County does). HB1577, just passed and enacted by the state legislature and Governor (except for certain provisions which may not take effect until July 2007, if at all), eliminates the fingerprint requirements for renewal of an existing CWP.
