    Default Is a PICS check required if you have a LTCF?

    I searched before posting this and I couldn't find a previous thread, so please for give me if this has been discussed before.

    I noticed on form 4473 block 23 that no NICS (PICS) check is required if the buyer has a valid permit from the state etc.

    The instructions for this block reference this (see part (d)):

    So, what is the deal? Are PA residents with a valid LTCF exempt from a NICS/PICS check? I must be missing something here. Perhaps PA's LTCF is not on the approved list or there is a PA law that won't allow this.

    Yes. In Pennsylvania, you must go through a PICS check every time you purchase a gun from a FFL, even if you have your LTCF.

    IIRC, in some states, if you have your LTC(or whatever the respective state calls it), you do not have to undergo background checks.

    South Dakota was one of those states where you could skip the check if you had a permit. (I was stationed there 1990-1994) - Main reason I got my permit was for the cash and carry capability for pistol sales due to SD having a waiting period. If I remember correctly, Dealer called issuing county's sheriffs office and verified you had a valid Concealed Permit, then you were good to go. I liked it!
