There is always non-residency permits too, that are much more hassle-free to obtain. IE, Florida, Virginia, to name a few!

Zoey,

Visit Florida's state website, and apply. You just receive the packet in about 2-4 days. They state it may take up to 10 days. Mine arrived 4 days.

Follow the instructions, fill out the finger print index. Take a picture, and pay for the fee. You should get the permit some time in the mail if you do get accepted.

You can carry in about 34 states. Including PA. I heard PA gives much harder times when applying, FLORIDA may be worth the try.

Nothing to lose!

Zoey,

Obtaining a PA License to Carry Firearms can be as quick as 15 minutes or as long as 45 days depending on which county you reside/apply in. The fee is $20 and the license is valid for 5 years.

In oklahoma its $25 to the sheriff office in the county u live to do ur passport style photo and fingerprints, the CC course varies usually $60-$100 depending on who does it, and $100 to OSBI for a 5 year or $200 for a 10 year.
