I renewed my Concealed Carry Permit in Pennsylvania today and I am happy to report that there were no real hassles at all. I changed county residency in the last 5 yrs, so it was considered a new application and not a renewal. $20, one photo ID, a completed form, and 19 minutes of my time, including going to the wrong court building initially and I have my permit slated to be mailed and arrive in 2 to 6 weeks. So, no hassles at all, and I think it is cheaper now than it was 5 yrs ago (something like $31 or $39 then). Other states (Commonwealths) may not be so hassle-free, I have heard. What are your experiences? Oh, very importantly -- a Concealed Carry permit IS required in Pennsylvania if you transport a weapon anywhere in a vehicle -- to the range, up the road to hunt a neighbor's lot, to travel to the local gun show and set up a table. Not everyone in Pennsylvania may be aware of this.
