I can still hit pretty good with a mouse... Penn. is a "Shall Issue State", we're also an open carry state. In most cases that means if you can legally own a fire-arm the county sheriff has to take your money and issue you a license to carry. No where on the application nor on the license itself does the word CONCEALED ever appear, it is a license to carry.
What the license does for most honest folks is to loosen up the pain in the ass rules for vehicle transport. Want to drive and carry ?, ride a motorcycle, bicycle, garden tractor, horse, or even a horse drawn cart or buggy ? You need a Pa. license to carry fire-arms.
No training required, there is a background check and a questionable personal reference requirement. $25.00 and good for five years. Aside from the political B/S of the different attourney generals involved, the lack of required training is in my opinion the major drawback in our getting reciprocity with a lot of other states.
And as Dave said. "The bad guys do it, so might as well"...
