    Question Visiting Ridgway, PA

    Next month, I'll be flying into Pittsburg then visiting Ridgway for a week. I've done some research on PA concealed carry law, places forbidden to carry, etc but still have a question.

    Does PA have State Preemption? Is it enough for me to know what's legal or not according to State law or can counties/cities have more restrictive rules?

    Guess I should mention I'll be depending on my non-resident Utah and Florida permits to keep me legal.

    yes, PA has state preemption.

    and the ridgway area is pretty firearms friendly anyway.

    make sure to check out the allegheny national forest while you are there.

    oh...and pittsburgh has an "h" at the end.

    So it's pronounced Pits Burf?
    I bet Victor Borge liked that! I loved his routine on Ghoti being pronounced 'fish'.

    I think one out of every 12 people here has a LTCF (CCW). I only know one house hold that doesn't have at least one firearm. I don't think you will have any trouble. If you are going some place to eat, try Gunners in Saint Marys it is owned by the same person who runs the local gun shop.

    I'm baffled why anybody would be flying across the country with Ridgway as a destination

    Wow... What in the world is in Ridgway? The only time I go there is to drive to the A.N.F. Go to St.Marys Straub Brewery for the tour and free beer... Also go to Johnsonburg if you want to smell something "fun" Also the Elk are a nice thing to watch, if ya head a bit east... Hell why would you want to go to Ridgway? It would be like me saying I am gong on vacation to Driftwood ahahaha... Well enjoy your stay...

    Head over to St. Mary's and check out Elk County Ammo and Arms. Nice place. I bought an xr-100 there. They have a nice selection and friendly staff. They even had a Barrett .50.
