    Legal Transport Intrastate (SC)

    Hi All:

    Long time lurker, first time poster.

    Can anyone point me to a statute either state (SC) or federal about allowing someone else to transport your firearm for you?

    I'm in a bit of a bind and have friends and family with me and want to know if its legal to let someone take my sidearm locked and unloaded in their trunk to my house from my current location, a few hours earlier than I will arrive.

    Thanks in advance for the on-target replies!!

    SECTION 16-23-20. Unlawful carrying of handgun; exceptions.
    It is unlawful for anyone to carry about the person any handgun, whether concealed or not, except as follows,
    unless otherwise specifically prohibited by law:..

    (8) a person in his home or upon his real property or a person who has the permission of the owner or the
    person in legal possession or the person in legal control of the home or real property;

    (9) a person in a vehicle if the handgun is secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed
    trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of
    the vehicle; however, this item is not violated if the glove compartment, console, or trunk is opened in the
    presence of a law enforcement officer for the sole purpose of retrieving a driver’s license, registration, or
    proof of insurance;

    (15) a person while transferring a handgun directly from or to a vehicle and a location specified in this
    section where one may legally possess the handgun

    There is NO GUN REGISTRATION...

    However, the only restriction I can think of is ensuring whoever is transporting your firearm is NOT a prohibited person (i.e. felon)

    Other than that, you're not going to find laws on what you can do....only laws that prohibit activity. If your friends/family aren't felons, you're fine.

    There is NO GUN REGISTRATION.....

    Suggest you go to Gunlaws.com and print out all SC laws on the subject and read them to get some idea of the situation.A lot will be legal gibberish but you'll get some benefit from it.
    Doing this for more than your home state is a pain but a good idea for SC.
