New Mexico, though a different situation, last year refused to recognize permits of surrounding states. I think I recall there was a big outcry that caused them to reverse their decision within days. Tourists and hunters were going to boycott NM and other states weren't going to honor NM licenses as well. It all came down to money.

The Pa. AG says she doesn't like the idea of Pa. residents who were unable to get concealed permits in Pa. to carry with non resident Fla.permits. Easy fix is just restrict Pa.residents using them. I think this comes down to money as well to some extent, cause now individuals will have to obtain a non resident Pa. license that will put money into Pa. as opposed to Fla..

But there will be those no longer wanting to go to Pa. without their gun and that will be a loss as well. I stay at my friend's vacation home when there and he's also pissed. We once found a bear hugging a tree in his driveway, but we were in a vehicle at the time. People walk their dogs and run into them as well, which makes having a gun handy. Maybe he can get rid of that house and buy another one in Vermont where there's no licensing.

Does PA even offer a non resident CCW at all?

Yes they do. I don't know what they charge, but I recently renewed my Fla. lic for $125, which required I pay for finger prints again. I felt that was unnecessary. That $$ was thrown into the crapper as far as I'm concerned. Being retired LE I'll probably just qualify under HR218 and carry in all states. Only problem is you have to re qualify every year. Nothing ever seems to come easy where guns are concern nowadays.

Seems kinda backwards, seeing how there are more states than just Florida issuing non resident permits.

Yes but you are SOL like me...you need to have a license issued by your state of residence first. Since NJ technically is a "may issue" state although they functionally are a no CCW state we are f'd.

Have UT but PA requires a resident permit if your states issues one before they will issue a non-res.

PA may regret what that lib dem AG did. She accomplished nothing but to turn off frequent visitors like myself. Blowing 4, or 500 bucks in Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes Barre may be a thing of the past. All my purchases of ammo and misc items at Walmart will cease. Rifle, shotgun and misc. purchases at my favorite gun shop will end unfortunately. Those $100 plus dinners that I take my wife out for in order to get away with things with my buddy will be kaputt and that will go for my buddy and his wife, as well. The AG may have been elected to office, but it obvious that she's gonna be losing revenue for Pa. and is obviously a schmuck.
