    Hey guys, I want to get my permit to carry my handgun. I mainly want the permit so I don't have to worry about going directly to and from the range. This way I can do what I want and not have to worry about my gun being in the car and going straight home. I doubt I'd actually carry it on me, but ya never know. Where do I go to acquire the license? I've heard its only like $25 for 5 years. Also, do I need to take a class before I can carry? What happens when I get an additional weapon and want to alternate when I carry, do I have to get a new permit for that weapon?


    Thanks.

    I went to the County Sheriffs office, took about 10 minutes.
     
  3. go to your Chief Law Enforcement Officer, usually the county sheriff's office, you pay $20, have your picture taken, they send you your permit in about 3-5 days.
     
  4. since when is it $25? I got mine probably 6-8 months ago, it was $20

    :dunno:
     
  5. they didnt give me an option of photo or non-photo, mine has a photo, was only $20 :run:

    I think it's good in about 15 states actually. It's good in Missouri, which is why I have one. Non-res PA permit is not good in Florida though :wtc: .

    physically I'm only 8 miles from PA, but realistically for gun purposes it might as well be 1,000,000 :wtc:

    That's me :wiggle:

    Everyone I know owns guns and hunts... that's just how it is.

    I'm not a redneck though....although there are a TON of them around.
