    Default PA Firearms Dealer's License in MontCo?

    I know that in Berks, you need to get your PA Dealer's License from the Sheriff. I also know that in certain other locations in PA, you get this license from the Chief of Police. Does anyone know where you get this license in Montgomery County? (Specifically Pottstown)

    Thanks in advance.

    May be helpful to you.

    From the Pennsylvania Uniform Firearms Act:


    6113. Licensing of dealers.

    (a) General rule.--The chief or head of any police force or
    police department of a city, and, elsewhere, the sheriff of the
    county, shall grant to reputable applicants licenses, in form
    prescribed by the Pennsylvania State Police, effective for three
    years from date of issue, permitting the licensee to sell
    firearms direct to the consumer, subject to the following
    conditions in addition to those specified in section 6111
    (relating to sale or transfer of firearms), for breach of any of
    which the license shall be forfeited and the licensee subject to
    punishment as provided in this subchapter:
    (1) The business shall be carried on only upon the
    premises designated in the license or at a lawful gun show or
    meet.
    (2) The license, or a copy thereof, certified by the
    issuing authority, shall be displayed on the premises where
    it can easily be read.
    (3) No firearm shall be sold in violation of any
    provision of this subchapter.
    (4) No firearm shall be sold under any circumstances
    unless the purchaser is personally known to the seller or
    shall present clear evidence of the purchaser's identity.
    (5) A true record in triplicate shall be made of every
    firearm sold, in a book kept for the purpose, the form of
    which may be prescribed by the Pennsylvania State Police, and
    shall be personally signed by the purchaser and by the person
    effecting the sale, each in the presence of the other, and
    shall contain the information required by section 6111. The
    record shall be maintained by the licensee for a period of 20
    years.
    (6) No firearm as defined in section 6102 (relating to
    definitions) shall be displayed in any part of any premises
    where it can readily be seen from the outside. In the event
    that the Commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police shall
    find a clear and present danger to public safety within this
    Commonwealth or any area thereof, firearms shall be stored
    and safeguarded pursuant to regulations to be established by
    the Pennsylvania State Police by the licensee during the
    hours when the licensee is closed for business.
    (7) The dealer shall possess all applicable current
    revenue licenses.
    (b) Fee.--The fee for issuing said license shall be $30,
    which fee shall be paid into the county treasury.
    (c) Revocation.--Any license granted under subsection (a) of
    this section may be revoked for cause by the person issuing the
    same, upon written notice to the holder thereof.
    (d) Definitions.--For the purposes of this section and
    section 6112 (relating to retail dealer required to be licensed)
    only unless otherwise specifically provided, the term "firearm"
    shall include any weapon that is designed to or may readily be
    converted to expel any projectile by the action of an explosive
    or the frame or receiver of any such weapon.

    Nov. 22, 1995, P.L.621, No.66, eff. imd.; June 18, 1998,

    Thanks. I had read that, but it doesn't specify who issues for my area.

Then take all the paperwork back to the Sheriff's office in Norristown where you can obtain your license. Expect to wait about a week for the local PD and 30 minutes at the Sheriff's office. There are several threads in this sub forum about Montco and issuing LTCFs.

    Thanks; however, I'm looking for a Firearms Dealers License, not a LTCF.

    Haha, right. I'm sorry I did not read that properly. My reading comprehension is slim to none at this point because I'm burned out on school work.

    Your state license to deal in firearms comes from the county sheriff, except for Philadelphia (and maybe some of the larger cities). I'm in State College and mine came from the Sheriffs Office of Centre County.

    6113. Licensing of dealers.
    (a) General rule.--The chief or head of any police force or
    police department of a city, and, elsewhere, the sheriff of the
    county, shall grant to reputable applicants licenses, in form
    prescribed by the Pennsylvania State Police, effective for three
    years from date of issue, permitting the licensee to sell
    firearms direct to the consumer, subject to the following
    conditions in addition to those specified in section 6111
    (relating to sale or transfer of firearms), for breach of any of
    which the license shall be forfeited and the licensee subject to
    punishment as provided in this subchapter:

    So the LEO section of the FFL application would be submitted to the local sheriff as well or would that be best submitted to the local chief?

    Take it to the sheriff, in these matters he/she is the one to give the ok and sign off on the paperwork.
