Open carry in Pennsylvania
#1
I'm new to PA I've lived here for 6 months I applied for my ccw and I live in Pottsville PA I called the sheriff department and my permit should be here in a few days. But I'm going to reading today with my family and I don't trust it can I take my glock with me and open carry or no?

While you don't have an LTCF you cannot transport a firearm unless it is to one to one of the listed exceptions. Which means you cannot just drive somewhere so that you can OC while on foot.

Why does it take so long to get your permit? When I got mine I went to the Sheriff's office and left in less than 20 minutes permit in hand.

NO.

You are only legally covered if/when traveling directly to/from the exempted places.

Legally, the issuing authority may take 45 days to issue a license. Some of them go by business days, so it may take even longer than that. Others have already covered the driving somewhere and then strapping it on bit: you can't do it. You can still leave your house and walk around from there, if you want.

Also, its a License To Carry Firearms (LTCF), not a CCP or a CCW. CCP = Concealed Carry Permit, which PA doesn't issue, and CCW = Concealed Carry Weapon. Doesn't matter to me what you call it, but you're eventually gonna get corrected by some pedantic jerkoff about it, so it may as well be me.
