    You cannot carry in restaurants that serve alcohol.

    SECTION 23-31-235. Sign requirements.

    Welcome to SC!

    The signs hold legal weight. Even if they're not exactly as the law requires, the responding LEO will probably take into account the INTENT of the sign and force you to honor it.

    Printing is ok as long as it's not identifiable as a gun.

    An accidental, brief "flash" is ok "as long as an effort is being made to conceal."

    You may carry your weapon transferring it from the car to your motel room without being violated.

    If you reach for ID in your car, and that open compartment exposes your weapon, you are not violated, but I'd damn sure inform the cop it was in there BEFORE reaching.

    Most financial institutions do not allow guns of any type.

    Watch your speed - FYI, State Troopers in SC often drive unmarked Dodge Chargers and large SUVs. I-85 between Anderson and Spartanburg is particularly bad.

    If you have a reciprocal CWP, you may carry concealed in your car. Otherwise, your gun must be in a closed (not locked) compartment attached to the car, like a glove box or console.

    You MUST inform if asked for ID, like in a traffic stop. You MUST carry your permit with you if carrying.

    SC is fairly liberal about gun carry, and the LEOs I've run into have been very professional about the situation. The LEO may confiscate your weapon for the duration of the stop - don't argue, he's insuring his safety. Some will simply tell you to keep your hands away from it.

    Concealed means concealed. Don't ask, don't tell. What they don't know won't hurt them. All three work well here.

    Enjoy your stay!

    What Keltye said except I will disagree about most banks and financial institutions. I live in Myrtle Beach and in almost 6 years have only seen 1 legal sign and that was on a IHOP.

    The signs have to be EXACTLY as described in the law or they are no good.
    "The theory that the children of the Commonwealth are the charge of the Commonwealth is a pagan one, derived from heathen Sparta and Platoís heathen republic, and connected by regular, logical sequence with legalized prostitution and the dissolution of the conjugal tie." R.L. Dabney

    True...BUT...I wouldn't argue the point with a store or institution manager and certainly wouldn't argue with the LEO he summons to have you removed from the premises.

    The controlling entity has the right to refuse service for almost ANY reason, AND to have to evicted and/or arrested if you don't comply. There are any number of charges a LEO can use to force you to leave - quietly or not. Don't push it, you won't win.

    One more thing...if you get off the Interstate in the Duncan, Lyman, Welford area of Hwy. 29 - do not, I repeat DO NOT speed!!! It's a known speed trap and they'll nail an OOS tag fur sur.
