I'm moving to Exton soon and found this on Chester county Sheriff's web site. On the application for LTCF under reason for license it has target shooting, hunting & fishing, and gun collecting. You need a weapons permit for that stuff in Pa?
Firearms Permit FAQ
Q. Is the License to carry a firearm issued in Chester County valid in other parts of the Commonwealth?
A. YES. The License to Carry a Firearm issued in Chester County is valid throughout Pennsylvania, including state parks and the City of Philadelphia. Please keep in mind that there are some areas where it is prohibited to carry a firearm: schools, courts (both county and district), and county properties (parks, and anywhere it may be posted). Starting January 2010, it will be legal to carry in Federal Parks. Please check with the park you are visiting regarding their rules.
Q. Is the license valid for just one gun I wish to carry?
A. NO. The license is good for any weapon you own.
Q. Do I need a license for target shooting?
A. NO. You should transport the weapon(s) to and from the range unloaded. Transport the ammo in a separate area of the vehicle. Put the weapon(s) in the trunk of your vehicle, wrapped up or in a case. The weapon(s) should not be accessible to anyone in the vehicle. You must go directly to and from the range.
