    Out of State Permit and Reciprocity, what do you think?

    Would love to get everyone's take on this. I'm licensed in my home State of GA, but SC does not honor reciprocity. I'm in Savannah, so I"m right on the border and would like to carry into SC legally. The Florida non-resident permit would allow me to do this. Any thoughts would be appreciated, especially from LEO from SC.

    South Carolina does not recognize non resident permits. You have to be a resident of the state that issues your permit for it to be good in SC.

    Yup. Check out:

    Concealed Carry Permit Reciprocity Maps

    A Florida non-resident permit is just going to get you in deep doo-doo while carrying in SC.

    I'm not a SC LEO, but as a SC resident, I've had many discussions with friends in GA on this topic. To my great chagrin, it appears that SC is a finicky state that requires that you own land in SC, in order to have a non-resident permit. Good luck and keep us posted if you can find a way around this.

    I think the only way around this is to buy a very small piece of property, then you can apply for non resident permit. this sounds like an expensive option. Although, if you are there enough, your life and saftey are worth it.

    The map appears a bit skewed. Being an Arkansas resident, transplant, the map shows almost all blue. Yet the foot notes state that SC although in blue, does not allow.

    So I'm not sure I'd trust this map. Even the AR State Police site shows a drop list of the states that have reciprocal agreements with Arkansas. Check out this link, am I reading it wrong?

    Don't know if it is still the law and/or if the businesses still exist, but at one time SC also allowed the owners (no restriction on % of ownership) of businesses in SC to qualify for a resident permit, also.

    Naturally, there were some private (non-public traded limited partnerships) businesses where, for a very reasonable cost, you could become a "partner."

    I'm from SC but don't agree with the reciprocal laws here either. Wish it would change but until we get some more pro-gun leaders here it's not. But as mentioned above, at least you can have it in your glove compartment.

    I don't exactly understand why they are not accepted nationally anyway. I see little difference between DL and CCW

    Here we go again.Everybody is hoping and wishing but until that day comes.

    I would go the route on buying into a business or buy the smallest parcel of land. No house needed.Just the dirt.

    I would say get the Florida permit and be legal in SC. I live in Virginia and my job occasionally sends me to Brunswick, GA (FLETC). My Virginia permit is valid in all the states I would be in except GA. I got a NH permit before they went up in price and am legal in GA. I know HR 218 and it may not apply in my situation (Department of the Army Civilian Police) so just to be safe I used the non-LEO methods of staying legal.
