    Hello i currently live in New Jersey planning on moving to PA by next year. Now I'm a gun owner in my state with a ccw. I would like to know do I have to register my firearm in pa and how? Also can I use my ccw in that state? If not what would be the requirements on getting the ccw in this state? And is it easy to get a ccw in PA? I know PA is a gun friendly state that I know of unlike NJ. Thanks

    Go to: www.pafoa.org to get the information you will need to obtain your CCW permit, it is a fairly simple and inexpensive process, once you have obtained residency.

    There is NO concealed carry permit reciprocity between PA & NJ, your NJ CCW permit is not valid in PA.

    According to the pafoa.org website, no you do not need to register your firearms with PA officials when you become a resident of the commonwealth.

    Can I get a non resident in the mean time? And to get that do I need to present my ccw from my current state?

    yes. go to the sheriff's office in the county closest to you with your jersey lisence and fill out the forms. it will only cost you about $25, and most applications clear within a month. it will be good for 5 years.

    where are you planning on moving to in pa? if possible, go to that county to get your CHL. I will be going for my resident CHL next month, (finishing a 4 month move this weekend) but i have had a PA CHL for close to ten years now as a NY resident. once you move into PA and get your DL, you will need to apply for your resident CHL, as your jersey one will likely no longer be valid.

    bast of luck, and hope to hear you are moving in soon.
