    When you go to the gunshop tell the owners your exact situation and show them your documentation. They will know if it is OK to sell to you. If they say no and can not give you a clear reason why you might want to try another shop for a second opinion. They might be uninformed or just do not want to deal with it. But don't go from place to place trying to buy something. If two gunshops say they cant sell to you contact a lawyer.

    You probably can't get a firearm (handgun) without being a resident of PA.

    A non-resident can get an LTCF. That is how I got mine.

    If I recall correctly...you have to be a resident of another (U.S.) state and have an equivalent license/permit from that state. So that puts you out of luck.

    Absolutely, Ive been researching for a while and I dont think LCTF is a viable option for me! But since I only intent to go to shooting ranges, it should not matter. Thanks for the feed back!

    Welcome! I would suggest that you to get in touch with our member Xringshooter. He is a local (State College / Lemont) FFL that is VERY experienced in transferring firearms to non-immigrant aliens (mostly international students attending Penn State) such as you.

    After you buy a firearm how often do you call the police or the BATF to make sure everything is OK and the sale was allowed?
