Resident LTCF, now moved out of state

I've scoured the State Police websites, and other handgun law websites but found no info to answer my question.

I have a PA Resident LTCF. It's date is good to 2020. In Nov I moved over the border to MD. Is my LTCF still valid in PA until it expires? MD is a state that has LTCF on the books, but will not issue- so I am unable to get a MD LTCF which is required by PA for PA to issue me a non-resident LTCF.

I'd still like to carry when I'm in PA, but have yet to find a solution as a MD resident. There are some really crappy things about living in MD...

That is tricky. You should be able to find your answer here. Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association Discussion Forum

I know that a PA LTCF is good until it expires or revoked. There is no difference in appearance between a non-resident and resident.

That's exactly the reasoning I've been going with. It was issued according to the law, and not yet expired.

The law also states that you have to be a resident of PA. You are no longer a resident of PA you are a resident of MD, your LCTF is not valid, same as your drivers lic. except you get a short grace period for the DL.


Carrying Firearms in Pennsylvania
Quote:
Individuals who are 21 years of age or older and are NOT Pennsylvania residents may apply for a license by submitting a completed Application for a Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms to any Pennsylvania County Sheriff’s office along with the required fee. A Pennsylvania license cannot be issued to a resident of another state who does not possess a current license or permit or similar document to carry a firearm issued by their home state if a license is provided for by the laws of that state, as published annually in the Federal Register by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms of the Department of the Treasury.

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.

The way I read all the wording is that you have have to be a PA Resident to be issued a resident LTCF; which I was. I haven't found anything that says the LTCF is no longer valid if you change residency; whether it's to a county other than where issued or a whole nother state.

You also do not have to change your address when you move. The only reason you would want to is to get your notification of expiration when the sheriff sends it out.

That is why I said the answer was tricky. There are few lawyers on the site I posted that can help.

dude, bottom line, why the heck did you move to The Peoples Republic of Maryland?! The last time I move back to PA from TN many years ago, I was simply searching for a job closer to PA. My wife who was home on maternity leave did my job hunting. I told her, under no circumstances, will we ever live in: MD,NJ,NY,MA etc. I told her don't even bother looking at jobs there!

A license to carry is valid until expired or revoked. Moving to another state does not invalidate the license.

If you are a PA resident, you cannot carry on anything other than a PA license to carry. In other words, you could not be a PA resident and carry on another states license. But this does not apply to you.

In order to get a PA resident license to carry, you must be a resident of PA. Once you are issued the license, it’s good until expired or revoked. Moving to another state doesn’t matter. This is what applies to you.

However, I do not believe MD accepts PAs LTC.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!
