    Default Definition of "Concealed CaRRY"

    Hi Folks.

    I am a recent trans-plant from Florida. I was Uncle Sams "Go-Fer" in the late 50's, & I was a member of NYPD back in the 60's & 70's.

    I just received my Pa. LTCF permit, but must admit to Much Confusion regarding what constitutes

    "Concealed" under the Pa. Penal Law.

    Any info will be appreciated.

    Bobo

    You do not need to be "concealed" under PA law. Open, half open, printing or hidden, as long as you have your LTCF.

    Concealed versus open is not defined in the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes. I don't know why, but in your case, and unlike Florida, once you have your
    Pa LTCF, you can carry open, concealed, half-and-half, duct-tape it to your forehead, what ever floats your boat.
    While many claim to support the right, precious few support the practice.

    "There is no legal definition, so you should stick with the dictionary definition. Concealed means hidden from plain view. "


    And so you know, if you have a ltcf..... that does not mean you have to conceal carry, you can open carry if you so choose.

    Also it does not give you the right to "limb" someone.

    Bobo, did you ever meet Serpico?

    I know you're not him, he's older by about five years.

    I'm sure more than one ex-NYPDer did a double take when he/she first spotted a Pennsylvania OCer.

    As a former New Yorker, and more recently a former Floridian, welcome to Freedom. Here one can get a License to Carry Firearms, unlike New York City, and there's no training requirement, unlike Florida, and it's only twenty bucks, on a one-page application, with no interviews (except Philadelphia), no detailed, in-depth reason requirement, no list of hanguns, no psych evaluation, no physical exam, no blood sample, no nothing.
