    Default 2017 LTCFs by County and Firearm Transfer Metrics

    Attached hereto [click on a bulleted phrase] find statistics for LTCF issuance and firearm transfers for 2017 consisting of:

    LTCFs issued (2003-17) [graphic]
    Handgun Transfers (2003-17) [graphic]
    Long-gun Transfers (2003-17) [graphic]
    LTCFs by County (Alphabetical)
    LTCFs by County Rank (% high to low)

    Note that LTCF statistics are not adjusted for revocations, deaths or issuance to out-of-state residents due to lack of any available records.
    LTCF issued data from the Pennsylvania State Police published documents. Population data from estimates provided by the US Census Bureau.

    Some interesting factoids -

    .............Total LTCFs issued Statewide in 2017: 290,958

    .............Total Statewide Active LTCFs: 1,317,922


    Trends comparing 2017 to 2016:
    .............LTCF issuance: -3.2% [-9,607]
    .............Long Gun Transfers: -7.9% [-28,976]
    .............Handgun Transfers: -7.6% [-36,379]

    Thank you for posting. Great information.

    Second only to Florida who has about 1.75 million. I moved to PA in 2010, a definite solid increase in all areas since then. You're welcome!!

    Ok, maybe it wasn't all me.

    I found this site to have some interesting info as well with a good graph showing all states in order. (2017 data)
