    South Carolina Non-Resident Question

    Since Georgia and South Carolina refuse to play nice together, what is the best approach to carry legally in South Carolina?
    I am going to be traveling there on a regular basis from Georgia and I don't want to be doing that "naked"

    South Carolina Non-Resident Question

    Since S.C. Does not recognize out of state non-resident permits, your only option would be to option would be to get an SC nonresident permit.. But you must own land in s.c. To do it.

    Correct...if you dont own land/home here you cant get one. I wish everyone just got along. I travel from SC to FL a lot and have to lock it in the truck while in GA. A pain.

    In Massachusetts, we have the same problem. We're bordered by RI, NH, VT, and CT with ME and VT close by. None of those states recognize a MA CCW despite the fact that we have some of the most rigorous gun laws in the country. I support the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act...but both anti-gun and pro-gun forces oppose it, for very different reasons of course.

    Since MA refuses to recognize any other state permit, why should they expect other states to recognize theirs?

    That's because Massachussetts likes to blame NH, VT, and ME for selling all the weapons used in MA violent crimes. At least that what the big billboard by Fenway claimed for years.

    I also travel from GA to SC a lot. I've read the SC law a couple of times and I read it to say you can keep a gun in the car as long as it isn't visible. When I make the trip I keep mine in the center consol.

    I actually have a follow up question regarding property ownership - does the law specify a minimum amount of land? Also, how does it apply to rented property? If my schedule stays the way it looks it might, I am wondering if I could buy a grave plot and count that as owning land? Or, maybe I could use a company lease? I don't live there, but I might have a business address; is that enough?
