    Since Pennsylvania has no form of Registration, you are just fine to carry any weapon that you legally own (Or, if you have a LTCF, any weapon that you have borrowed with the permission of the owner)

    18 Pa.C.S. §6111.4. Registration of firearms.
    Notwithstanding any section of this chapter to the contrary, nothing in this chapter shall be construed to allow any government or law enforcement agency or any agent thereof to create, maintain or operate any registry of firearm ownership within this Commonwealth. For the purposes of this section only, the term "firearm" shall include any weapon that is designed to or may readily be converted to expel any projectile by the action of an explosive or the frame or receiver of any such weapon.
    § 6115. Loans on, or lending or giving firearms prohibited.
    (a) Offense defined.--No person shall make any loan secured by mortgage, deposit or pledge of a firearm, nor, except as provided in subsection (b), shall any person lend or give a firearm to another or otherwise deliver a firearm contrary to the provisions of this subchapter.

    (b) Exception.--
    (1) Subsection (a) shall not apply if any of the following apply: (i) The person who receives the firearm is licensed to carry a firearm under section 6109 (relating to licenses).

    So you can't pawn a gun in PA unless you have a license to carry? Or is that just a city ordinance?

    Actually if you read that, I don't believe that you are allowed to use a firearm as collateral on a loan period

    re-read it:
    No person shall make any loan secured by mortgage, deposit or pledge of a firearm,
    -
    nor,
    except as provided in subsection (b), shall any person lend or give a firearm to another or otherwise deliver a firearm contrary to the provisions of this subchapter.
    I changed the formatting so you can see the break down of the sentence a little more clearly...

    The first part has no exceptions. Only the second part of it, relating to lending a firearm to another person.
