No fingerprints. None of my references were from PA. Only downside is that it's a hike to get there from Ohio. It's pretty much in the middle of PA like the name implies. Have to renew in person. No mail in applications but most everyone knows that by now. Just for reference it's probably 3.5 hours from Youngstown.
Drove by Mercer County on the way. They do not take renewals unless the original license is from there.

BB62, have the Pennsylvania groups equivalent to OFCC had any luck with these troublesome counties in their own state? If not, I don't see how folks like us who don't reside, vote or spend money there on any regular basis could expect to get traction.
JustaShooter wrote:FYI, Crawford, Erie and Butler counties are also non-resident friendly and much closer to Ohio, though I don't know their policies on renewals where the original is not from their county. But since the application process for a new license isn't any different than a renewal, applying for a new license in one of those counties instead of a renewal wouldn't be a hardship IMO.

A reminder postcard? What a classy and professional way to do business... Centre County rocks....
