I will be taking a ccw class next week for sc. I am seperating from military in May and moving to nc. Do i need to retake class etc. Or can i just keep renewing through sc? Also...i have a fl drivers license. When i seperate from military in sc will i need a sc DL to carry or am i "grandfathered" in? Side note: im not getting discharged with any negative, just served my time. Which brings up another question...sorry! I have had numerous firearms training and range dates with military though i cant seem to qualify with our handgun (sig p229) cant shoot it to save my life but i am an excellent marksman with other .40's...will i still need this class with the training ive had or does it only count if i qualify at range with military? Thanks for any feedback, 1st post! Love the forums by the way.
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.
If you own property in SC you can apply for a non resident permit from there and be able to carry in NC on that but you'd be doing yourself a fair disservice since the class for NC has a lot to offer in training on the NC laws governing the use of deadly force and concealed carry laws specific to the state.
For a NC permit you must attend the state certified class. One other benefit to the NC carry permit is that you will not have to get a pistol purchase permit from the sheriff every time you want to buy a handgun. You have to do this if you don't have a NC carry permit.
If I can help on questions about the NC permit feel free to ask.
Thanks for the service too!

Do yourself a favor, keep your florida drivers license (as long as you have a place to live there or are a resident somehow) and get your florida permit.
Since your questions have been answered I'll welcome you from Wisconsin.

Once you separate from the service, unless you return to FL you'll have to obtain a DL for NC if that's where you're going to reside permanently. You can obtain a FL CWFL using your DD-214 as proof of firearms training, but like Bullseye pointed out, with the NC permit you won't have to ask sheriff mommy for permission to buy a gun.
