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.
