Pennsylvania retroprocity

I have an Ohio CCW permit. Once upon a time I had a PA non resident permit but they sadly no longer offer them through the mail and PA doesn't have reciprocity with Ohio. The nearest county that even offers a non resident permit, since we now have to apply in person, is a few hours drive. I understand that the Florida non resident permit isn't valid in PA anymore so, is there a non resident permit that is honored by PA that you can apply for through the mail or I'm I stuck making a trip if I want to carry in PA?

FL non-resident is still honored by PA:

Utah is another option and is cheaper than FL I believe.

BTW, it's "reciprocity".

Following a large number of google links that all say the same thing. I'd be happy to be corrected.

Does PA issue CCW permits to non-residents?

Yes, but have to apply in person. I think you also need to have a CCW permit from your home state to qualify, but I might be wrong.

County sheriffs office.

In Philly, I think you have to apply through the PD.

Doesn't FL also require a "home" permit when it's available?

Arizona non-resident ccw good too.

Also, AZ is good for Las Vegas, NV.

Florida ccw not valid in NV.

AZ ccw $60 first time/$43 renewal and can be done by mail.

FL $117 first time/ $107 renewal and can be done by mail.

Send photo copy of your OH ccw as proof of training. Need one time set of fingerprints.

Call Arizona DPS CCW unit at 602-256-6280 and they will send you a packet and answer any questions.

Maine and New Hampshire are both through the mail. Took a while to get my Maine permit but my understanding is NH isn't bad. You don't need to take any special classes for it either.

In PA you need a ccw to carry a firearm in a vehicle. Any ccw from any state is legal. You can OC with no ccw (except in philly). Just OC when you come here to PA. Many people do it everyday.

Thanks, I think I'll get an AZ permit. Can you request the packet online without needing to call them?

Yes, you have to have a CCW from your home state to qualify. The only exception is if your home state doesn't offer a CCW. As of 9/16/2012, the only state not to offer a CCW is Illinois. Thus Illinois residents can get a PA CCW without a home CCW.

PA law strictly interprets home state CCW. If you live in MA, NY, NJ, MD, or any other state where it is hard to get a CCW you do not qualify unless you have the permit.

I live in Ohio some 10 miles from PA. Before Ohio had CCW almost all my gun friends had a PA permit. When Ohio started the CCW system the PA permits were still valid until renewal. When Ohio residents renewed their PA permits they then needed a Ohio CCW.

BTW, I have a FL permit and not the PA permit.

A little off topic, but why did you get a Maine permit? Michigan permits have reciprocity with Maine and there are no States with non-resident permits that are honored where Michigan isn't.
