... in Pennsylvania. Had to go to the Scranton area for a bit today. Don't have a PA CCW... so OC is permitted there. No one noticed, said anything, no problems whatsoever. The worst part was covering it when I crossed back into the PRNY. You can OC in a vehicle so long as you have a CCW from PA or another state. Pretty cool.

Here I am in a supermarket in PA.

It was weird at first - because it was a new experience for me. But reading on some of the OC forums - most interactions with folks and LE tend to be positive.

I live and work 10 miles from the border. It's weird knowing that 10 miles away, there is a place that respects the freedoms our forefathers granted us. It's even weirder that I should have to worry about whether or not the state I'm in respects freedoms specifically enumerated in the sacred document of our land, with unmistakably strong language such as "shall not be infringed."

i think its funny how in all these other states OC is nothing new and you need a permit to CC, whereas NYS u need a permit to CC but never OC

I understand that you can't move your job, but can't you move house? I know it's not always that simple when you're deep in a mortgage, family, etc. Just wondering if there were any other reasons. Personally I'd be living in a house over the border before you could say "Amish." ;)

Was Just in PA last weekend at a pretty large show (700 tables) and let me tell you it was alot different than NY! Any pistol you wanted to see from the case was no questions asked... Did not need to see your permit or give you the 3rd degree..... And alot of class three stuff to drool over!

If I moved, I wouldn't have a NY permit, so then I wouldn't be able to take a firearm with me 90% of the time when I left the house (to go to work).

Interesting. I have PA permit also but If I ever went there for any business I probably would OC to see what it feels like but I probably would be really nervous just like the OP.Esp if I was to bump into law enforcement. Great job though. Good post.

Awhile back, the city of Philly was harrassing OCer's, I wonder if it's still that way or have they been sued into doing the right thing.

I'm not sure how comfortable as a civilian I'd be with myself Open Carrying, I'm just so used to concealed carry now /shrug
I'm glad PA and other states have the option though. I almost wish NY could separate itself from the Albany area north.. call it New New York ( ;) ) or whatever, but jeezus. Hell, I'd be fine with Little Vermont.

They've improved immensely, from what I've been reading.

On the flip side, it seems the office that issues LTCFs in Philly has been bending over backwards to make up reasons for denial.

I'd rename upstate to Free New York
