    New member - new CWP holder - couple questions

    Hey everyone,
    New to the forum. I recently received my SC CWP about a month ago and haven't left home without it yet.
    I do have a question on obtaining either a FL or PA permit - so as to be covered in more states.

    Should I opt for FL? what is the process?
    I do travel quite a bit and would like to be able to CC on my road trips.

    If there is reciprocity then why bother? I can't think of a reason.
    It appears like you are ok in Florida

    It appears you are not ok in PA.

    Scroll to:
    Category 5: State does not recognize or grant licenses/permits to individuals from another state, currently does not extend reciprocal privileges to Pennsylvania license holders, or has not indicated current status.

    Welcome to the forum neighbor!

    FWIW, I got a New Hampshire permit after receiving my SC CWP. It's easy...fill out the application & send them a copy of your SC permit along with the $100.00 fee.

    Here is a link to the application:

    Florida firearms rules

    Florida is pretty reasonable with regard to CCW. However, as a non-resident, you would not be able to use a Florida CWP in some states. There are several states which ONLY reciprocate with Florida RESIDENT permits. Check it out at

    In short, you have to pay $117 (for 7 year permit) and show that you have taken a firearm course that shows competence. Courses vary from 2 hours to 6 hours and are widely available.

    Check the reciprocity map to see which one gives you the states that you want without going through so much expense or trouble to get. I know florida is harder to get than PA or even NH. NH is $100 for 4 years. PA is I think $26 for 5 years unless that has changed since my wife got hers. NH and PA are just a matter of downloading their application, filling it out and sending it in along with a photocopy of your driver license and SC permit. PA is real fast on approving their permits. Florida is a tougher process from what I understand. If you go with PA. Send it to Centre County. They had my wife's approved and back to her in a week and 2 days. Would have been faster if not for the weekend.

    Welcome from Florence, SC. I personally have a NH non resident permit along with my SC permit.
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Go for a NH non-resident permit. It's a little pricey, but it covers the rest of the South and about 35 other states, including the Northeast.
