    Question PA Application Question

    Only real question I have on the application is the:

    "REASON FOR A LICENSE TO CARRY FIREARMS:" question -

    The options are:
    SELF-DEFENSE
    EMPLOYMENT
    HUNTING/FISHING
    TARGET SHOOTING
    GUN COLLECTING
    OTHER

    Being from New York, this is a "trick" question for us, depending on which County Judge you're going thru you can be denied for the wrong selection.

    As an out of state applicant, which option does the forum suggest be used?

    Thanks!!

    Being from NY you need to check "other".
    This immediately informs the clerk to place your app in the circular file.



    There is no trick. It's on all the applications, probably some throwback from before Pa was shall issue....IDK

    Regardless off what you check it will likely be printed with "self defense."
    All ltcf's have the same privileges. regardless.

    You check Other and then write in "The Constitution, motherfucker"
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    Then hand over $20 and wait for your "rights" to be approved.

    His first post, he might not get the joke! The rest of us chuckled

    Self defense is what to check. If you check anything else, they will "correct" it.
    The most dangerous place in America is a "gun free" zone.

    As others have said it doesn't really matter. I always put self defense, but it will probably say self defense no matter what you put.


    Next time I renew now I'm going to be very tempted to put "Constitution Motherfucker".

    I'm from NYC also.
    I checked self defense no problem.
    I'd rather have a gun in my hand then a cop on the phone.
