    Help - Out of state ccw carrying question/issue

    I am a ohio resident that posses a out of state florida ccw license. I am planning to come to south carolina and my brother and I are going to drive our motorcycles down to florida. I would like to take my handgun with me. If I have a bag that is strapped to my motorcycle can I bring my handgun with me until I get to Georgia where I will stop and than carry my weapon concealed? Is this legal to do this in south carolina? If not, can you advise what I can do to bring my handgun with me legally? I have a sport bike and the type of bag will either me a saddle bag or a tank bag. Any ideas? Thanks for helping out of state fellow ccw member. your state does not allow non-resident ccw licenses for people that are not a resident of the non-resident license.

    Go to handgunlaw.us and see what the individual states allow.

    SC is now listed as recognizing FL CWFLs.

    My understanding is that SC only honors FL CCW if I was a Resident of Florida. I am a resident of Ohio with a NON-Resident Florida CCW license. Again, I want to bring my handgun in my luggage on my bike, since SC will not allow me to carry. Is this possible? Thanks...

    Just follow federal firearm transportation laws. Its all at handgunlaw.us. The Skinny version is Unload it, lock it up, and store ammo seperatly. Still check Handgunlaw.us, just incase Im mistaken or forgetting something.

    Question USCCA Pack & Go

    Anyone know what is up with USCCA Pack & Go site [http://www.carryconcealed.net/packngo]?

    Used to use it.

    Doesn't seem to work for me now.

    Is it member only? FWIIW -- I dropped my membership there after I found this site.

    Found it!

    Go to the page that said 'Page Not Found', scroll down, you'll see listing of all states. Select any state, when loaded, scroll down again, on left side of page you will find 'Pack-N-Go' Trip Planner.

    As TerriLi said;

    Federal transportations laws work just about everywhere, and you should not have any problems, with your unloaded pistol tucked away in your luggage.

    Exception: DC, Hawaii, New York city, and a few other republic of socialism federation.

    IF you plan to do this again, why don't you have an Ohio CHL?

    Last I heard, anyone who can legally own a handgun in SC can carry that handgun, loaded, and concealed in the vehicle, just not on their person.

    Right I just read this:

    (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 driverís license, registration, or proof of insurance;

    Thanks

    Before it was reciprocol my brother in law, a Florida lawyer, kept his handgun in the console or glove box and was good to go in SC. It can be loaded and the box/console does not have to be locked.

    Good question. There was like 4 reasons that I did not like the Ohio license.

    1) The process of getting one in that state was a pain in the butt. There was like 4 forms to fill out. That does not include the numerous other pieces of paper that I would need for all the addresses that I have lived at since 18 years of age. The kind of work that I do I regularly live at a different address every couple of years. It was a pain to remember all the addresses. Florida's license did not care about all the addresses. There is only 2 forms to fill out.

    2)I don't plan to live in Ohio long. So as soon you move your residency to a different state you lose your Ohio license. Florida it does not matter where you live.

    3)Florida's license lasts for 7 years and has more states that it good in than Ohio. I can also get it renewed over the mail. You cannot do that with Ohio. Also, the Florida license it covers more than just handguns. It can cover other "weapons". Ohio just a handgun.

    4)Ohio you have to go to the Sheriff's office and some of these offices have "some" Sheriffs like to abuse the law and make things difficult for you as well as sometimes they do not comply to the law like MUST issue at 45 days. (Trust me there is forums up in Ohio stating all of this from other people) I could see a bunch of issues here that I did not like. Florida you send your packet in to a single department, you do not get treated poorly or the possibly of being treated poorly is not there.

    If I was a resident of Ohio and knew that I would live in Ohio all my life and I could easily type all my addresses on a single piece of paper "maybe" I would went this route. However, for "me" it was a no brainer......Ohio was not the route to go.

    Out of curiousity, does Ohio honor your Florida non resident permit with you residing in Ohio? I realize that they recognize the non resident permit, but was wondering how it applies to people living in Ohio and using another state's non resident permit. THANKS
