    LTCF through Centre County. My references were from out of state.

    Been in PA just over 4 years now. While I do "know people" here - no one I know personally knows that I have guns, let alone carry them around with me. I also prefer to keep it that way, for a variety of reasons. Additionally, I should not have to disclose it to any of them to secure an LTCF.

    I will have to renew through Allegheny County. Their site says references are not required for renewal. I'm hoping that since the one I have NOW isn't through them, they will not treat my renewal as an initial application and require the references - but if they do - I will use out of state ones.

    Okay, yeah. There's some dubiousness about "outsiders" here in certain parts of PA.

    But in 5 years you can't find 2 folks to vouch in the unlikely event they're called?

    I totally agree the whole thing is BS and shouldn't be on there... I completely support the lack-of-basis for the question being asked.

    But in 5 years ...? I'm not 'from 'round these parts' myself, yet I could easily turn up 2 folks I've met in the last 6 months whom I could ask to serve as references for an LTCF... And I'm obnoxious and disliked, generally.

    Exactly.

    I find it amusing that Philadelphia County of all places no longer requires references as the requirement was ruled in a class-action suit to directly violate the confidentiality that the state guarantees the applicant during the application process.

    Nice to know there are some good things about living in Philly.

    Im in the same boat. Been here 3 years. Almost 4 from Texas. Need two references. Does ANY reference count or does it have to be from Carbon County?
