I'm going to be spending a week in the Poconos soon and want to bring my pistol. Not that I can't go a week without shooting it, but my wife wants to try it (she can't here) and I'd feel much more comfortable not leaving it home for a week (just in case.. ya know)

I don't have the PA CCW license, just kept putting it off and never got around to it. Anyone know if it's still legal to bring it and just not concealed carry? Assuming I travel with it in a lock box in the trunk.

When are you leaving? If you get it in the mail tomorrow, chances are you'll have you non-res by Friday.

True... very true.

If this is not an option for you, call the local police department in the area you will be staying and ask. Very friendly folks in PA LE.

If you want to do the "locked box" thing, you can bring it along. (I think you may even be able to "open carry" while there, but don't take my word for it. Check for yourself). Now, just be careful while travelling through NYC and New Jersey. In Jersey, you can't bring hollow points, I've been told. Put the gun in 1 locked box, and the ammo in another locked box.

And, like someone else said, if you send out the Pa. application on Monday, you'll probably have it in a week or so.

And take the time to check out the local (for Jersey and Pa) laws for yourself.

I would not risk it I took mine and was stopped at the range by a PA park ranger in the poconos. I was asked for my PA permit along with my NY permit since I was not a resident of PA. He was very nice to me and had no problems letting me allow others to shoot the gun but he told me in order to shoot a handgun in PA on state property their must be at least one person with a PA pistol permit. I had my PA permit so it was not an issue he did however call somewhere to check the PA permit.  Also you have to watch out with transporting it thur NJ.

Thanks for the advice. An issue is certainly not something I'm looking for so I'll just get that application in the mail first thing Monday morning and hope it gets here in time.

Or just don't shoot on state property.
