    Tried googling for you and found that pepper spray and stun guns ARE legal in PA - but nothing specific about carrying pepperball guns.

    Suggest checking with:

    a) local chapter of paint ball clubs / leagues:  see what laws govern the use/carry/licensing (if any) for their guns.  Yours will probably be the same (just the ammo is different).

    b) local chapter of the NRA:  bet they would know or could find out for you.

    c) See if the state has a Hunter Education program and licensing system.  Whilst your question is not directly in line with their mandate, I bet they would understand the gun laws well enough to offer an opinion.

    Hope this helps.

    As far as concealed or open carry, they are treated like any other gun.
