When I stated earlier today about how pleasant an experience it was to obtain a concealed carry handgun permit in Pa, I did not complete the answer as orginally asked. Once I showed my NYS pistol permit, there was no attempt made for me to provide references for the PA application. My picture was taken and soon I was handed my laminated PA permit. I failed to mention that when I arrived, I was accompanied by the other three members of my golf foresome. All of us had NYS permits and we all left the office with our PA permits. I have made mention of this occurance many times on many firearm forums and once again repeat the pleasant way the sheriff and his staff handled everything. All of us obtained what we came for and left with much information from the staff as they answered all our questions as if it were an election year and they were all running for office.
