when i moved i was told that you do not need to change the address because it it valid in the whole state. not sure if this is correct but worked for me

Your drivers license is valid in the whole country, but you have to have the correct address on it. It's a valid form of I.D., so I'm betting you would need to have your current(correct) address on it. I could be wrong though

For the record, Pennsylvania does NOT issue concealed carry permits, Pennsylvania issues LTCF's "License to Carry a Firearm" You are under no obligation to conceal your weapon, and can in fact carry openly with no license at all in most of the State.

My son had this same issue when he moved down to Lancaster cty from Schuylkill. Sheriff told him no provision for address change. Keep license until it expires, then go to current county seat for new one. If checked by LEO simply tell them you recently moved. They should be aware that people move from time to time.

When I moved to another county I inquired about renewing my license from the old county since it is only a few minutes drive to the Sheriff's office and is actually closer to me than the York County Sheriff’s office. They told me I had to apply to the county in which I lived in. I then called York County Sherriff's office to see if I could just do a renewal since I had a valid license in another county that was about to expire. They said I had to apply for a new license since my old license was from another county. It took about two weeks to be approved.

That's true, but there's a lot of debate about it, and that local police may harass you about it. Consensus seems to be conceal it, and what they (general public) don't know don't hurt.

There is no debate about. Open carry is 100% legal in PA, and has been for a while. This year, the fact that open carry is legal in PA was included in police officers yearly required updates.

Any officer you does not understand this should take note of the recent decision by a Federal Judge in New Mexico where several police officers were denied "qualified immunity" for their involvement with a person carrying openly.

In other words, these officers can now be persoanlly sued by the person who was legally carrying openly.
