Moving guns into PA

Maryland may finally be too much for me.

I am thinking about moving North of the Mason Dixon line. Preliminary thinking for now. I am just doing my homework.

Is there any hassle to move guns into PA?

I am talking registered handguns and a few unregulated long guns (per MD law). Nothing turret mounted or anything crazy.

Donít think so. Nothing you can own in MD that you canít have in PA.

You might be hassled for a whole 8 minutes to get a CCW permit if you don't already have a PA accepted permit.

Enjoy the freedom if you do in fact make it to free country.

I've thought about the same but mostly because of real estate prices.. What's always held me back were the public schools as I have younger kids.

Both of those things are factoring in.

Real estate is dirt cheap up there. Laws are less draconian. Schools can be good in Central PA from what I understand but it's not a universal thing. Each little town can be very different from the next.

The guns are an after thought really. I'd just like to know if there are hoops to jump through so I'm not surprised later.

An old Baltimore County cop I know who moved to PA did this

He said a few days after he sent his application in the local police station called him to come pick up his CCW permit

He was so shocked that he thought it was a trap...like he had come up on a warrant search by mistake and they were luring him to the station to arrest him. After spending his career as a Maryland coo he couldn't believe how easy it was

When he got there he never even talked to a cop. The receptionist just handed him his permit

This was 20 years ago but still...funny as hell

I'm from Harrisburg PA. The easiest way to explain it is as follows.... There is no concept of Baltimore County Schools or Baltimore County Taxes. There is a Towson SD and taxes, Catonsville SD and taxes, Essex SD and taxes, etc. Now Cockeysville and Hunt Valley may share a school district, but they are still different townships, so one could live in Cockeysville and still get the Hunt Valley schools. This way they would only pay the crazy school taxes, but not the crazy township tax as well.
In a nutshell, the quality of schools and tax rates vary significantly based upon the school district and municipality combination.

Where about are you looking for housing?
Do you plan on commuting to MD for work?

I was approved in 5 days, including weekend, in York County. They didnít contact my references.
