    Should I chance it?

    My SC CCW ran out today. I applied 90 days early as per regulations. Talked to rep from SLED today. She said that it had recently been approved to continue to allow carry until new license is sent, because SLED is behind,BUT many LEOs do not yet know this. What do you think? Is it worth the hassle if LEO doesn't know this new law,and thinks I'm carrying on an expired license.

    I'm not sure i would take the chance with a phone ok . They would have to fax or email a letter to give a grace period but by that time you think they could sent your permit . IANAL

    If you are legal, I sure would. If SC is a "must inform" state (which I believe you are), I would carry a copy of the law that says that you can carry once you are approved, even if you do not have your permit in your possession.

    If your state statutes require you to have actual in-force evidence on you, if requested to prove your CHL, then you might well have troubles if stopped and asked.

    If, however, SLED assures you the statutes simply require an in-force CHL, and LE does the look-up, and there's no statute requiring you to lawfully have the in-force CHL with you, then you might chance it.

    SLED might be able to fax something to you, as confirmation, if it's going to be days or weeks before it arrives. But, if they're behind anyway ...

    I would just await arrival of the mail, myself.

    I'm sending in my renewal in about the end of Aug.It expires Nov 30th.If SLED hasn't sent mine back in time,i will make sure,to keep my receipt,from money order,and gonna carry on.

    I can't remember how long it took,to get mine renewed in 2009,but,it came back in time.I guess,SLED is jammed up.

    Just do this..."...if a current (SC) CWP holder's permit expires while awaiting completion of the renewal process, the expired holder's permit will be considered valid as long as the permit holder has a renewal receipt in possession with their expired permit. In other words, if you carry your renewal receipt with your expired permit, you'll be legal."

    I had mine renewed in 2010,so,i'm good for a little bit.When i renewed back then,it came back,before it expired.

    That said,if it's still like that,the next time,and mine expires,before,i get my new one back,i will keep my receipt,and i'm going to carry mine.
