Legal NY Pistol Permit holder here. I just called Potter County Sherriff's office and the (shockingly nice) woman I spoke with told me the Governor shut down all permits as of mid-March 2020? Pretty weird times. All I want is to legally be able to take my pistol to the camp range in the future. Times are tough and times are most definitely times are weird. God Bless America.

You can go to a range and shoot pistols without having a LTCF, if that is what you are referring to.

There is no permit required to possess or shoot a handgun at the range in PA.  It’s not like NY where you need to have guns listed on your permit or any of that be. LTCF is required for concealed carry, otherwise you can just take it to the range cased/unloaded and do your thing.

Secondly I’m not sure why they told you licenses were shut down since March, I just received my PA non resident ltcf about a month ago(I’m from ny also). I received it in the mail exactly one week after applying

Well you dont need a LTCF permit to shoot at a range... as stated.

Some counties will not issue an out of state LTCF at all, but thats been the norm for years.... The lady is mistaken, sort of. Back in March, 5 counties illegally stopped issuing new permits because of covid. I am pretty sure that has all been rectified. Potter county was not one of those 5 anyway.

I called the County Clerk in Coudersport and she stated I needed to call the Potter County Sheriff's office. I told her I was a NYS resident, who had a pistol permit. I said I wanted to get a PA pistol permit and she stated Gov. Wolf stopped allowing permits back in March XX. I asked her if she knew when they would be back online and she said I would need to look at the website for updates. I then asked how it worked and if I would be able to bring my pistol across state lines to go to camp and she advised me that I do not. Weird.

you do not have to get a out of state permit in the county of your destination.  I would check another county.

I think her info is wrong about the pistol.  call the state police to verify, or call the law offices of Josh Prince

Pa is an open carry state. Just open carry

Unless you have a LTCF you aren't open carrying during a state of emergency without running the risk of being prosecuted under 18 Pa.C.S. § 6107, which a violation of is a misdemeanor of the first degree, which is a federally prohibiting offense.
