Since it came up
Ive been patiently awaiting my pistol. and the chance to exercise my right to carry it. Ill be turning 21 on Sept 12. As if on cue, theres a gun show in Harmarville Sept 15-16th.
I know theres a waiting period to get the gun, so how does that work with regard to the gun show? If its a two day long affair, how can one purchase and receive his or her firearm? Is there a way to get the process started in advance so I can walk out of the show with my hardware?
Also, where do I get the application for my CCW (license to Carry Concealed Weapon)? Will I absolutely need a PA drivers license or will my FLA DL suffice? I think I heard a 45 day period to gain approval, but does anybody know the likelihood of it coming back sooner?
I suppose I could google all of this, as I had intended to do prior to all of this taking place, but like I said, it came up.
They only way to go home with a hand gun when you do not already have a carry permit is to "buy" it before the show. At least as far I as I know. I can take one home right off, but I have my permit already.
You will have to go to the courthouse downtown to get the permit. I have had mine for... 13 years so I do not recall the procedure or wait time. I know I had to go back though.
