    New Pa Resident needs help with the laws...

    Hi there, I'm moving from Va to Pittsburgh Pa this friday. I have always been a avid fan of OC even though i do have my CWP. i am still a Va resident just attending school at Pennsylvania Gunsmith School. Can you guys tell me the do's and do not's of open and conceal carry in Pa?

    Too much to type.

    Start here... http://forum.pafoa.org/concealed-ope...nsylvania.html

    And then this... http://forum.pafoa.org/open-carry-14...re-you-do.html

    That should get you off to a good start.
    While many claim to support the right to keep and bear arms, precious few support the practice.

    our laws are close ennough to yours that it should be easy to remember them. plus, your VA license is good here, until you establish residency here, no matter what any ********* DA from Philly thinks. once you're a resident, though, you'll need to get a PA LTCF.

    You seem to be agreeing with that ********* DA.... ???

    VA license is good even after establishing residency....

    i'm not sure about that. PA is one of those states that don't recognize dual residency, or at least makes it very difficult. once my parents received their PA driver's ID, their NY ones become null and void. a non-resident VA license would be good in PA, but i'm not sure a VA resident license would be considered viable for a PA resident, or vice versa.

    of course, a VA resident with a FL or UT permit would be fine. again, i'm no lawyer, or even a paralegal. until someone actually posts the statute pertaining to this, and proves me wrong, i'm going to assume i'm correct, because safe is better than sorry.

    and to the person who proves me wrong, i owe you a beer the next time you're in my area.

    I don't have one...does VA make a distinction between Resident and Non on the permit...other than the address?
