Hello friend. My name is Ely, and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
Generally speaking yes
. PA does not require a permit for the following:
PA does require a permit to carry handguns, however. And an NJ permit to carry is not recognized in PA. According to the Pennsylvania Attorney General here
However, if all one wants to do is to purchase a hand gun, rifle, or shotgun in PA, this should not be an issue for an NJ resident provided of course they do not have a criminal record
Laws change frequently and some shops have their own rules about selling to non-residents, so it is recommended to call ahead to the shop before going to purchase.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Good luck.
