License to Carry?

License to Carry?

One of the questions we often get from customers is, “Should I get my concealed carry permit?”  Our staff agrees that it is well worth the $20 and a little bit of running around.

A concealed carry permit is for more than just personal protection.  Having your permit can make transmitting your handgun more convenient.  We encourage you to read the PA laws regarding carrying firearms at following link: (http://www.pafoa.org/law/carrying-firearms/concealed-carry ).

Applying for your permit is easy!  It is good to start the process online.  Go to your county sheriff’s  website (see links below) and see exactly what is required for the county you reside in.  Each county has a slightly different process.  You can fill out the application before you head out.  Websites will also give you hours of operation and fees.  In general, the cost is around $20.00.
