sorry, meant concealed........and your answer is what i understand the laws to be as well, I.E. I am a Pa resident, but do NOT have a PA permit, I have a FL permit. That said according to some it would be illegal to conceal with the fl permit because i don't have a pa permit.......I have never seen any law that says that....matter of fact i find just the opposite.... http://www.pafoa.org/concealed-carry
Could you specify whether you mean open or concealed carry?
Pennsylvania, like most states requires people to have permit to carry a concealed firearm as regulated by the following statute:
PCS Title 18, Chapter 61, Subchapter A, 6106
This license can be in the form of Pennsylvania's "License To Carry Firearms" (LTCF) or a permit issued by another state that Pennsylvania recognizes as valid through a reciprocity agreement.
(a) Offense defined.--Any person who carries a firearm in any vehicle or any person who carries a firearm concealed on or about his person, except in his place of abode or fixed place of business, without a valid and lawfully issued license under this chapter commits a felony of the third degree.
