    Default Ok to use non-DelCo refs in DelCo LCF app?

    I'm preparing to apply for a Pa. LCF in Delaware County. I live in Delaware County. The two references I would like to use live in Philadelphia and Montgomery Counties. Will this be a problem? In another thread, current DelCo LCF holders have stated that the Sheriff is very nit-picky (e.g., he calls employers).

    I doubt it is legal to reject an app because the refs are out-of-county, but my aim here is to get my LCF with a minimum of hassle. The problem is that we moved to DelCo fairly recently, and all my known self-defense-friendly acquaintances are in PhilCo or MontCo.

    Any intelligence would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    My wife used a philly and bucks reference, she had hers in about 1 month. I saw nowhere on the app where it required a local reference.

    Thanks. Apparently Berks Co. and perhaps others have such a requirement. I appreciate the feedback.

    My wife and I both used out of county, one of mine was in Chester County, hers were in Dauphin County, no problems.

    Funny Chevmeister, my wife got hers very quickly and mine took just over 45 business days, he (Sheriff) must like giving them to ladies.

    One of my references lives out of state. Didn't have any problems.

    Depends on your county. DelCo does not require that the references be from DelCo. Chester County does, just check with the Sheriff's office prior to dropping the app off, they are usually very helpful and nice people to deal with.
