I've had a permit since 79. I find it unbelievable there are no requirements, no carry manual, no instructions, nothing. You pay the $25, you need two signatures from friends saying your "ok", they do a background check and that's it.
It is so messed up, no one seems to really know what the laws are, where you can or can not carry and how (at least in every county I have had one).
When I was 21 and just got out of the military, the City of Bethlehem's COP revoked my carry permit after a meeting with him, stating no one but police could carry (via his discretion), so I went back to the Sheriff and he reinstated it the next day.
Used to be you could not carry in Philly or Pittsburg. Now, I am told you can carry anywhere but the airport, courthouse, federal buildings and any others with a no carry placard. Again, nothing in writing, and you are on your own. Considering the consequences of it all, you would think this would be better handled for many reasons, instead of being just another means of revenue for the State.
