    Frankly, I'd expect a slap on the wrist in PA. Most cops are pretty forgiving, however expect to be treated as a criminal until they verify your LTCF

    ยง 6122. Proof of license and exception.
    (a) General rule.--When carrying a firearm concealed on or
    about one's person or in a vehicle, an individual licensed to
    carry a firearm shall, upon lawful demand of a law enforcement
    officer, produce the license for inspection. Failure to produce
    such license either at the time of arrest or at the preliminary
    hearing shall create a rebuttable presumption of nonlicensure.
    (b) Exception.--An individual carrying a firearm on or about
    his person or in a vehicle and claiming an exception under
    section 6106(b) (relating to firearms not to be carried without
    a license) shall, upon lawful demand of a law enforcement
    officer, produce satisfactory evidence of qualification for
    exception.

    I am ignorant of the PA gun laws, but would it be possible to just OC until you get the trunk opened?

    Here in KY, if one cannot produce a CDWL while CCing, one gets a 25 buck non criminal slap on the wrist. This, of course, cannot happen if concealed is truly concealed,unless a cop runs your plates during a traffic stop. We just OC or glovebox carry anyway, both legal without a stinkin' permit!

    Or is it that you guys in PA need a permit for OC and CC? Please forgive my lack of knowledge here.

    Here in pa you can open carry without a permit as long as you are on foot,

    ANY states permit is good for carry in a car,

    and a pa ltcf or recoginized permit such as Fl, Va, Tn, etc, etc is neded to conceal.


    but he would have been ok anyhow as he was ABLE to produce ltcf if needed once car was opened....( and i'm sure the LEO could loan a hammer to get the window "open" for you.....:P)

    well, if locked in the car, it's nothing to call AAA and get back in.

    FWIW, i always carry several photocopies of all CCW's in my car... just in case.
