Centre County Sheriff is still taking mail-in applications for a PA Non Resident License. New law in effect around 5/1/2011. After 5/1/11, you will have to make a trip to PA to Apply.

Catch is: you must have a CCW issued by your state of residence.

Unless you're permit collecting, stick with the UT, it's identical w/ 7 more states.

However, Philly is violating the rights of reciprocity permit holders. If you're in Philly much (and I happen to be) then a PA permit is quite useful.

The law in PA is that a non-resident is supposed to be able to get a LTCF(PA's CCW in other words) in any county they want. However, many of the sheriffs are refusing to do so. Anyone wanting to get a PA license may want to do that right away while they still can by mail.

Are there any compelling reasons beyond visiting Philly to get the PA permit? I have Florida, and have thought about getting Utah, however that will wait until I see where I am stationed next.

Its still going on I remember a post on on a few guys being violated awhile back. Arent the Philly PD being sued over that? I have a Missuri CCW but really don't plan on going to PA any time soon anyway.

It's very cheap(26$ for 5 years), that may be its biggest benefit. I believe they'll issue to residents of states that don't have a CCW(VT,IL,WI,DC), so if national reciprocity passes, those states may go and get PA's permit.

I got mine from Centre County a month or so ago figuring that by the time it expired I expected some form of national reciprocity to be in place.

Florida > Utah by two states.

Florida gives you Kansas and New Mexico, but you lose Minnesota.
Florida +1
Florida does not accept the non-resident Utah permit, so Florida is needed to carry in Florida.
Florida +2

Adding Nevada equalizes them, but Florida is easier to get than Utah.
