    So according to the wording NR permits are good too.

    I normally open carry a 1911 in a GI flap holster- much more comfortable while hunting.

    Not to instigate the Fudds, but if one were hunting deer with a revolver, would it be legal to open carry an AR 15 type semi- for your personal protection, of course.

    Unless the AR 15 is a SBR then the answer is no.

    You will note in the law allowing the carrying of self-defense arms while hunting, quoted in post #1, that the tolling statute (34 PA CS §2525) only applies to "firearms" as defined in 18 PA CS §6102. As such long arms are not qualified.

    Thumbs up Re: YES, LTCF allows carry of semi-auto handguns, for self defense, while hunting in

    Does this statute include archery season? I am assuming it does but just wanted to get some feedback to support my interpretation of the law.

    This is a great forum I have really learned so much while being a member here. Thanks for all the great posts and sharing of information!

    Yes it does, all seasons. Carry on!

    Edit to add citation with my emphasis.
    Sec. 2525. Possession of firearm for protection of self or others.
    (a) General rule.—It is lawful for a law enforcement officer or any person who possesses a valid license to carry a firearm issued under 18 Pa C.S. Section 6109 (relating to licenses) to be in possession of a loaded or unloaded firearm while engaged in any activity regulated by this title.

Those arrows in your Quiver.Is not going to do anything,? That fast.? Right or Wrong.? This Law,? should of been changed Years ago.? But the Liberals here.? Are the same ones that Rammed the S.A.F.E. Act.? Down every honest Sportsmans throat.? Hopefully Next Month in November.? We get the chance to get rid of Gov. Como.? God willing.? & get in a Governor.? That will Repeal the S.A.F.E. Act.? Etc.?

    Rep point coming your way.
    Be careful treading there ! I know what you mean, and everyone else here does too, but a bear with a .45GAP bullet in him during Deer season and not in the overlap, or even DURING the overlap, is going to read like 'hunting with a semi-auto' to any WCO.
