    Should I carry addresses of Gun Ranges with me to satisfy Fed Requirements, as if i am going target shooting? Can I be going to the "woods" or any other place to satisfy Fed Transport Requirements?

    Is there any other way to transport firearms legally interstate in order to remain legal and to accomplish my ultimate goal, to OC in PA?

    I am presuming that you are not otherwise restricted from ownership/possession in Md. or Pa. and are going direct from Md. to Pa.

    While in Md., obey Md. laws. When you cross into Pa., obey the laws of that state. End of story.

    Since you are not traveling through a state that does not otherwise allow possession of a gun, neither destination nor purpose is required.

    Doesn't PA have a permit/license requirement for transport in a vehicle unless transported unloaded/cased and to and from specific exempted locations?This was moot with any states license or permit for possession or carry. I would certainly double check that you would meet one of the exemptions.

    That's what I was asking. It's all thoretical, anyway, but I wanted to know if "heading to a gun range" via having address and directions would qualify as an exception in PA law, should I go there to OC.

    I'm good.

    You must have some state's carry permit, no? Any state's permit gets you car carry in PA.

    No permit needed to OC on foot, but needs accepted/reciprocal permit to carry in vehicle as I understand it.

    11. Any person while carrying a firearm in any vehicle, which person possesses a valid and lawfully issued license for that firearm which has been issued under the laws of the United States or any other state.

    So one can vehicle carry on the permit of a non-reciprocal state and when getting out simply go OC legally in accordance with Pa. laws.

    Well that means I learned two things today. Missed that somehow before or disremembered it. Thanks.

    If you feel it is due, you got it. My request was based on wanting to know, not to be offensive.

    No problem, just that you posted incorrect info, without a cite, I corrected it and then you asked for a cite. Mike beat me to it. Good on you Mike.

    As to the forum rule requiring a cite for such things, some of us ignore it when we know what's what and some of us ignore it when we are making stuff up. It is all good as far as I am concerned. Yata hey right back atcya.
