    Carrying in South Carolina w/o permit

    I will be travelling through SC next week. I have a non-resident FL permit and I know that it is not recognized by SC. However SC seems to allow the carrying of a loaded gun in a vehicle as long as it is in a glove compartment even without a permit. Am I reading this correctly? Thanks.

    Looks like you can if it is in a closed container, such as the glovebox.

    You are correct. A handgun may be carried in a CLOSED compartment. The compartment does NOT have to be locked.

    Welcome to SC, have a great time while you're here!

    Have fun in Charleston... It has to be my favorite place in the whole state. If you like Civil War or WWII era history then you'll find lot's to do... Oh, and the lady's love the market but, you have to watch your wallet cause there's lots for them to buy.

    Agree with everyone. . . Carry in glove box or console and my be loaded.

    Also your hotel room is considered your home so no problems there either.

    A really nice range in Summerville near Charleston.

    Get out to Patriots Point as well... Enjoy your trip..
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
