    SC vs NC vs FL vs resident vs non-resident... HELP!

    Hi everyone. I have a question, but first here's my situation:

    --Lived in Florida, got my "concealed weapon or firearm license" (it does not say resident or non-resident permit, but does have my old FL address on it)
    --Then lived in North Carolina, got my "NC Concealed handgun permit" (again, does not say res or non-res, and has my old NC address on it)
    --Just moved to South Carolina where I now live... my drivers license is a SC drivers license...

    Do I need to get a SC concealed permit, or do my other permits suffice for carrying concealed? Any help would be great, it seems impossible to find any info on this after searching for hours... Thanks!

    NC does not work as a non resident. It's only good as long as you are a resident of the state.

    Ok so would the FL permit qualify as a non-resident now that I don't live there any more?

    It will qualify as non-res but be sure to change the address on the permit, as far as North Carolina we do not issue non-res permits so it is no longer valid.

    South Carolina does NOT honor non resident permits. You're looking for a way to screw yourself to the wall. Get the SC permit.

    You need to get a SC permit. Beside the fact that SC does not honor non-resident permits, there is the question of validity of your other 2 permits, since you are no longer residents of the states. When I moved to VA from OK my OK permit ceased to be valid when I established my VA residency.

    Also call FL and have your address changed just so it's correct for other states where you can use it.

    For Florida, you need to notify the Dept. of Ag. of your new address, which you can do online here: https://licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/li...hgaddr790.html

    However, South Carolina does not recognize your Florida license now, as you are no longer a Florida resident. For a list of states with Florida reciprocity, see http://licgweb.doacs.state.fl.us/new...led_carry.html

    Welcome to the forum, Mike9c.

    Per previous responses, you will need to get a SC CWP. Technically, there are exceptions where some non-resident CWPs are honored, but it requires that you own and pay property taxes here in SC. We have some legislation on the table right now that will hopefully correct some of this nonsense. Here's a link that should be able to address the details around your question:

    One, if your permit was issued to you as a resident by any state, that's a resident permit and only valid while you maintain residency, just as if a DL. Two, you need to apply for a SC permit if that's the state in which you reside (work, maintain a dwelling, vehicles are registered, etc.).

    Florida will only honor another state's resident permit if:
    1. That state has a reciprocy agreement with FL;
    or
    2. you are a resident of that same state. FL does not honor someone from, for example, NY having a PA non-resident permit as that person is not a resident of PA. In other words, non-resident permits issued in other states are not honored, only those isuued by FL.

    I believe a SC permit is honored in both NC and FL.

    Owning property in SC can qualify you for a non-resident SC CWP, but it does not allow the state to recognize non-resident permits from other states.

    Thanks so much for all of the info everyone, and also for the links! I'm definitely getting my SC permit even if my other permits WHERE acceptable. If nothing else, If I ever did have to use my firearm I would want my local permit for court purposes (it just looks better).

    So I need to change my address on my Florida permit? Will that turn my permit into a non-res permit and will they send me a new card? Will this start my expiration date over again for that permit?

    Florida only issues one permit, and makes no distinction between resident and non-resident.

    When you change your address, you have the option of getting a new card, but they don't require it. In fact, the new CWFLs don't have the address on them at all.

    Changing the address does not change the expiration date.
