Going to see a friend
I am live in Georgia and I am going from my school to see a friend that goes to school in charlotte Nc. I will be traveling through SC (where my permit is not honored) and I will end up in NC where my permit is honored. I have read over laws of Nc and Sc and and Sc says that you can have a gun in your car or vehicle but it has to be in the glove box and such. Here come my dilemma first I will be traveling with my friends girlfriend and I am not sure I want to take my gun off and stash it just while going through SC and also in Nc you are not allowed to carry in any establishment that serves alcohol. I am one that hates to break laws but I hate to her shot or robbed more that that. So I can decide if I will just go deep concealment or what. If anyone can shed some light on this situation it would be greatly appreciated.

So are you asking if it's okay to break the law since you don't want to disarm where you are legally required to do so?
If not, then yes, you have to disarm and store it as required by SC law and in NC you have to disarm and store it while at a location that sells alcohol for on site consumption.

Well, its your permit that will go by-by if you get caught, so I say make up your own mind. That way you can't blame me.....

Put the gun in a 'rug' for the trip through SC, she (probably) won't know what it is, and you can get to it legally if the need arises.

You could always go around SC, although your friend's girlfriend would probably wonder why you're taking the long route rather than the direct one (might be awkward). To cover, just say you have arrest warrants in SC due to unpaid parking tickets. It's the excuse I use when I avoid driving through Illinois.

At the GA-SC line make a pit stop and just put it in the glove box or console and lock the cover. You can get to it if needed. Make a pit stop inside the NC line and while she is inside tending to business you can re-conceal it. Sorry, best I can offer.

Keep it in your glove box or center console the whole trip. You will need to keep it there while going to a restaurant in NC anyways. That way your friend will never know, it's legal and its within an arms reach while in your car.
You're more likely to get caught by the police while carrying the gun illegally than you are to use the gun in self-defense driving on I-85 between Charlotte and Atlanta anyways. Those state troopers love to pull over out of state plates looking for drug runners.

Just leave it in the glove box problem solved and permit still intact

Let me see if I have this right. You have 2 choices:
1. You can do it legally and still have the weapon available to you if you need it.
2. You can ignore the law and face the possibility of a felony conviction, loss of you weapon, loss of your permit and loss of a lot of cash in legal fees?
Doesn't appear to take a brain surgeon to decide which is the right choice. JMHO

First welcome to the board you will get alot of knowledge here as I did and do everyday. Do you think anybody here is going to tell you it is OK to do something illegal? You are going to get pulled apart quickly.
Here is a thought why dont you (A) tell the GF why dont you go inside a get a table while I go park the park? Let me pull the car up?
or (B) open the converstation about firearms? (she may know more than yourself)
(B2) Teach her about firearms and how to protect herself ?
(C) maybe she has a smoking hot friend who loves guns she can set you up with?
