    Default Re: Erie County CCW Application Form

    So a bit of an update post influx of applications. I went in today for the first time to get the LTCF, brought in the form all filled in and signed. Sheriff Merski was in the area told me Steelers fans were free today. Like the man already I thought.

    Anyway onto the actual process, dropped my $20 down went back saw the clerk he entered the information told me 2 to 3 weeks to receive it in the mail. Ok by me given the nature of the world we live in. Get ready to get on the elevator and Sheriff Merski with of a couple of his deputies also get on for the ride down.

    Anyway he asks what I was told for time frame told him 2 to 3 weeks, he chuckles and say try 3 to 5 days. Sounds like they're well caught up and honestly can handle a quick turn around from the 80 to 90 a day they had been getting from election time through Sandy Hook.

    So anyone who had been waiting, fill out your paperwork get your 20 bucks and get to the 4th floor.

    In person only. Bring your money, ID and permit from your state of residence. They will mail it back to you generally (your PA permit) but you MUST apply in person.

    Check out the Sheriff's Office you are going to online and by calling first. NOT ALL are non-resident friendly. Erie is. So is Centre for sure, Sheriff Danny Nau is outstanding.

    I am presently resident in Toronto but will be changing that to FL soon enough. PA State Police will NOT permit me to submit a CPIC check (same as NICS) directly from RCMP, nor will they put me through the PA state system (PICS?). PA does not use NICS so having all the permits in the world from other states will mean nothing, except for that permit from your home state, should they ask.

    Good luck. Sheriff Nau's office is like greased lightening with apps and I hear nothing but good things about Erie. We are going to be taking a trip stateside this summer and my permits from other states cover me in PA, but would like to have the PA permit nonetheless. Once we close on our property in FL will become a US resident again and get the FL resident permit as well as PA non-resident. We travel so much it is "the more the merrier" until a National Reciprocity Act is passed that will protect us everywhere.

    NY has gotten so bad that even with permits from several other states and from Canada (i.e. I am legal where I start and end my journey) I gather that NY state is nail biting territory as you are likely to be charged/arrested despite FOPA.

    Be sure you know the LATEST laws and procedures in every state you will be travelling through and that you have either a lockable TRUNK or TWO safes in the back of your SUV, one for the gun, the other for the EMPTY mags and ammo. That's what we do. TWO safes in the back of each SUV. Harbour Freight $50 for a decent one (get the one with rubber buttons if you can, the plastic keypads break with luggage in the back).

    Safe travels or as Sheriff Nau says "Happy Trails".

    Is this application good for Ohio residents as well, or is there a non-resident application?

    It's amazing what love will do to people.

    We'll be moving south as soon as she retires.

    Thanks for the info. The more permits the merrier!

    So, although I'll probably never be in Philadelphia, is that place the only Class 1 city?

    Carrying in Pittsburgh, f'rinstance, is OK?

    Thanks for any help.
