LCTF Question

My husband and I applied for LCTF's so that we don't have to worry about stopping at Wawa or camping while on a hunting trip and still being able to legally stash our guns in the trunk of our car. My interview went OK and I said the LCTF was for hunting purposes only, no self-defense (we only plan to have hunting arms, stashed and locked at all times). The officer took that information clarifying a couple times that I did not want the LCTF for self-defense and put my application in. When my husband went in to apply, he said the same thing about wanting the LCTF solely for hunting purposes and the officer he spoke with said the only reason accepted for issuing an LCTF is self-defense and he did not need one for hunting (even if he's stopping at Wawa, etc.) and that he HAD to indicate self defense to obtain one. Does anyone know if this is correct - that they will only issue an LCTF in the case of wanting it for self-defense? We're in Philly. It's a long process and I'm nervous about getting denied and then having trouble making reasonable plans for going to the range.

Re: LCTF Question

A LTCF is good for ALL REASONS; hunting, self-defense, target shooting, etc.

It does not matter what reason you check for wanting the LTCF and most places will automatically mark "self-defense".

Re: LCTF Question

I think you have to do it in the county you live... I hate stuff like this and I'm a worrywart. We've invested a lot of time and energy into this new hobby. I'll be upset if they decide it's not legitimate...

Re: LCTF Question

Yeah, it was really confusing. It asks on the form itself and gives the options for hunting/fishing and target shooting which is what I checked.

Re: LCTF Question

If it"s only for hunting, you can get a sportsman permit, You"re pistol can"t be concealed, it has to be in plain sight.

Re: LCTF Question

Like I said, no matter what reason you check or what reason is marked on the LTCF, it is good for ALL reasons.

Just mark it for self-defense and be done with it. No one says you have to carry it for anything other than when you go hunting, but it will cover you in a wider variety of situations.

There is an old saying;

Better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.

This statement is misleading: "You"re pistol can"t be concealed"

The Sportsman's Permit allows for the firearm to be concealed while hunting.

Wrong, it can be concealed while hunting, fishing or trapping.
