    The one I took included state law. Gun buster signs, transportation, restricted areas, etc.

    My LTC class did too, the instructor was a former police officer so he also gave us "unofficial" advice.

    Such as, if you are in a building that is not your home and someone is coming at you with a knife, yell "DROP THE KNIFE!" loudly to attempt to get witnesses to hear you. You can only shoot if you're backed into a corner and cannot exit safely. If you have an exit, you have to use it (stupid IMO) because there's no public "Castle Doctrine" here, just in your home.

    I live in Augusta, GA right on the border of South Carolina. I have a GA weapons carry license, but SC does not have reciprocity (hopefully this will change soon). Every once in a great while I travel into South Carolina, and wanted to know this very thing. I called the SLED concealed weapons permit phone number, and the lady that answered told me that it must be in a glove box, console, or trunk, locked or unlocked, loaded or unloaded. As long as its out of sight in one of those places, you're good.

    State law is a BIG part of the NC concealed handgun class. Both on the use of deadly force and also the laws governing concealed carry.

    This should answer your question...

    RV/Car Carry Without A Permit/License
    Anyone who can legally own a firearm can carry it loaded if contained in a closed Glove Box, Console or Trunk. Their law is very specific on the only locations where it can be carried.
    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.

    Easiest answer....check your DA's website or simply call your local Sheriff's Office or the office that issues CC permits in your jurisdiction.... You need straight, reproducible facts on this one.

    First Sgt & OldVet got it right, but don't forget if traveling north into NC the law is the opposite. You must have a CWP to keep it in a console or glove-box. You can however have it in the open. And this is by AG opinion rather than statute. Ain't this fun?

    The law says "In a closed compartment with an integral fastener." A latched glove box or console, with a lid, will do. It can be loaded or unloaded---your choice...

    Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, there were a lot of things that weren't discussed in my class that should of been. Luckily, my mother and sister ended up with a much better instructor and I was happy to hear them relaying correct information when they were telling me how their class went.

    Or just holster the gun on your hip and you don't have to worry about it.

    No, it says: "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;..."

    It does not say a closed glove box with a latched fastener, it says : "or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle;...",

    Meaning it can be carried in the luggage compartment as long as it's in a closed AND latched container, such as a gun case. This is for vehicles such as a SUV or Hatchback which do not have a separate trunk. One can hardly expect to have it in a closed, latched glove box AND in the luggage compartment. While most glove boxes and consules have some sort of latch, some do not, relying on spring hinges.

    Sorry...what? What's that? My state only has one kind of permit and it's not even required to transport or carry open. I guess you have more red tape to deal with then I thought. Nevermind.
