    South Carolina - Reciprocity/Non-Resident

    Anybody from South Carolina here? South Carolina is one of the few states I cannot carry in that I spend time in a couple times each year. I would like to follow the rules, but don't see any legal way I can.

    Unfortunately, You may be SOL. With the combination of SC and NH CWP's, Florida is still one of the few states where we can't carry. POLITICS!

    I don't know if it would work, but you might try taking the Utah class and get their non-resident permit. That might bridge the gap (I say might because the way the reciprocity chart reads, SC may not honor any state's "non-resident" permit).

    The only other option is buy some land in SC. Then, you can get an SC non-resident permit.

    Hope this helped.

    Pending for the SC pols

    H 3212 would require South Carolina to recognize valid Right-to-Carry permits issued by other states. NRA has been working for several years to improve the current reciprocity standard for permits, which are rather restrictive, and this bill would establish a straight recognition standard. H 3212 is currently on the Senate Calendar, and could be taken up by the full Senate in the near future.

    Might not help you to carry on your person, but carry in a vehicle is legal in SC.
    (At least it's something)

    Full laws here:
    South Carolina Law Enforcement Division

    (9) a person in a vehicle if the handgun is secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle; however, this item is not violated if the glove compartment, console, or trunk is opened in the presence of a law enforcement officer for the sole purpose of retrieving a driver’s license, registration, or proof of insurance;

    I also go down to SC twice a year -- Am I correct in assuming that vehicle carry and carrying inside the residence (in my case a condo) is legal, as long as I don't venture out into public?

    Correct, and you may carry on private property with the permission of the owner. Condo or motel room is fine. If you own the condo you could apply for a SC CWP. SC will issue to non-residents who own property in SC and AFAIK a condo meets the requirements.

    Maybe 2,000 of us could buy a SC lot together?

    You can always apply for a non-resident FL permit. Then you are legal in GA also.

    Actually, the NH non-resident permit covers GA. The patchwork quilt of state-by-state reciprocity is ridiculous, and it has nothing to do with the safety of the public; it is all politically motivated.
