    dont know about OC for out of state, but you DO NEED A LTCF for carry in a car.
    Once you get in the car it is considered concealed.

    or a LTCF from a state with a reciprical agreement

    Corrections

    You need a license from any state to carry in a car (CC or OC)

    This is by statute, not because it is considered concealed. It's just specificaly prohibited (carry in a car without license)

    thanks, learn something new every day around here.

    so, it doesnt matter if we have a agreement with them then?

    But I still cannot have my gun in a car in a state without an agreement with us?

    No agreement needed for in a vehicle. Licenses from ANY state are honored for in car carrying/transporting.

    Correct, for car carry. CC on foot requires a license from a reciprocal state.

    The AG has the controlling say over reciprocity. He has said that a license to carry from any state is OK for vehicle carry.

    PA's laws have no bearing on other states. You have to follow the law of the land you are in. As for MD - you'd have to have a MD license/permit or fall under one of their exemptions.

    States with agreements will honor our PA LTCF as if it were one of their own. Some states dont require a license or permit in a vehicle being considered an extension to one's place of abode. You have to know the laws of any state in which you travel.
