What Is The Minimum Age To Purchase A Gun in PA?

In Pennsylvania, the minimum age to purchase a long gun (rifle, shotgun, or semi-automatic rifle) is 18, while the minimum age to purchase a handgun is 21. There is no waiting period, license or permit to purchase, or training required before or after purchasing a firearm.

Is PA An Open Carry State?

While Pennsylvania, excluding Philadelphia, is an open carry state, meaning individuals who purchase guns can carry them openly without a license, concealed carry requires a concealed carry license. To obtain this license, one must go through the county sheriff, submit an application, pay a fee, undergo a background check, and provide two non-family member references. The license is valid for 5 years and may be renewed.
