    ccw changing states and seperating from military

    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!

    NC Bullseye summed it up well but I will add that a North Carolina permit will give you reciprocity with many more states than a South Carolina permit will.

    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.

    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.
