    CCW problems

    Just a very short rant.
    Have had CCW in first in VA then SC for 17 years with no issue. Time to renew in SC. because of volume of applicants, I called SLED 120 days prior to expiration date. They said I can't put in application before 90 days. So, at 9am exactly 90 days prior to license expiration I sent in renewal request by email. Called last Friday, they had received everything at that time, and was told it would still be at least 4 to 6 weeks AFTER the license expire before I get the renewal. So, no carrying until then. I would think that if they specifically limit a person to 90 days they should do their part and get it back in time. Fat Chance

    Kinda like the IRS...if they owe you.....nice. If you owe them....avoid jail time! Friggin system anyway. It's not a two way street, it's you bow to the system and beg for mercy no matter what the law says.

    SLED upped the price of the CWP on their own, saying they were swamped and needed it to "facilitate efficiency" in serving the public.
    Governor Haley whacked them on the neck and made them lower it back down.

    Had the same happen to me so I got a PA permit so I was still legal......Looks like your state won't allow this unless you are a resident of the other state,,,,,If you have a pro carry legislator,,,,it might be worth a phone call or email.....

    Have you asked SLED if your permit is still good if you've applied for renewal and they're behind on reissuing it?

    I had the same thing with my Nevada permit and wrote them a letter asking for a 120 day temporary license while I waited for them to complete their backlog. They called and said I could come pickup my new permit. I would drop them a respectful letter requesting in writing an extension or temporary license they might suprise you. I sent mine to Sheriff directly.

    Good Luck

    I'm in the same boat as the OP. I sent mine in 90 days prior to expiring. It expired the 6th of July. They told me "leave your gun in your car, you can not carry until you receive your new permit".

    SUCKS.

    The problem is that you are using "logic". They aren't.

    Dang, you can't even apply for a FL non resident permit because SC will not recognize it.

    Here in El Paso County in Colorado the Sheriff is granting extensions to your current permit if they don't get your renewal done in time.

    That's just not right. Specifically disallowing renewals prior to 90 days, then failing to be capable of processing within 90 days. You had it ready to roll at 120 days. No excuse for this, you're right. I'd be a little disgusted with that process, too.

    Before Indiana went to lifetime permits, if you had your paperwork that showed you had applied for your new license in a timely way, you could carry with that, and your old permit, until the new one arrived. Before you assume you can't in SC, I'd at least investigate. It is true, however, that SC isn't the most gun friendly state in the Union.
