    I posted last week about how great the PA process is in comparison to MD. Today I rode back to York with a couple of friends who were picking up their permits. There was a different woman working and the experience was equally good.

    As everyone has said, MD could learn a thing or two about the process from PA. The thing that stands out to me is how welcoming PA is. MD makes you feel like scum for wanting a permit and PA treats you... well, like they are helping you exercise a right. There’s the “it’s easier than you think” wording on the permit website, super friendly staff at the York courthouse, accommodating hours, low cost, fast turnaround, and even a “congratulations“ email when you are approved.

    Thank you Pennsylvania.
    It's one of several things I miss about my home state.

    I applied Monday, got approved Wednesday, picking up Friday.

    Very impressed, I’m sure those investigators are swamped.
