Get your Pa License reinstated or dont let it expire. Utah only from i know has resaprisity with PA if you are a resident of Utah . Otherwise everyone would get a utah license an believe they have resaprosity in 35 or so states. Thats not the case. Sorry for the spelling errors. Be well . Cookie Bronx Ny
New York residents must go in person to a county in Pennsylvania and obtain a LTC. Centre County is done in one trip. Other Counties will not honor a restricted concealed carry. Must be Unrestricted!
Pennsylvania requires two Character References.

apply online to Honesdale (wayne county) sherrifs dept, they turned mine around in under a day. Applied sunday afternoon, got an email monday morning to come get it. They never even bothered to call my references.
I heard recently that the Sheriff stopped issuing to restricted New York pistol licenses. One of my friends who hunts my property used me as a reference. I received the letter from Wayne County and Faxed it over to the office. He had it in 3 weeks. This was over a year ago, when they started the online application. When you renew the LTC, no character references required!

Hi. I am a resident of NY and have my NY pistol license. It notes Sportsperson/Residence. County Clerk has not timeframe on when/if they will issue a license with the restriction removed. I want to apply for my PA license in Wayne county. Does anyone have recent experience on if Wayne county will issue a license to a NY resident with the restriction noted?

If not Wayne, County, will how about Adams county or Centre County?

thanks,
Centre County will issue a restricted pistol license. It’s done in 30 minutes or less in person. Wayne County is done online. You will need two character references. My friend last hunting season used me as a reference and I faxed it to the office. I have heard that Wayne County may not be giving a Pennsylvania LTC to a non resident with restrictions.
I would visit the online website and see if they post that requirement for unrestricted pistol license from a non resident.

I called Wayne County and can confirm they will not issue a LTC if your NY permit notes sportsman and or residence. I wound up going out to Centre County and was done in 45 minutes. Would have been faster but she said the computer background checks were slow that day.

thanks,

Mike
My friend was with a Restricted License. He did the online application, no mention of restrictions. This was November 2020, he received the notification in a few weeks. It worked out great since he was hunting upstate and only 40 minutes away from Honesdale.
He was going to drive to Centre County which is almost 4 hours away from his home.
