    That's probably a good idea. Be sure to post their reply verbatim to this thread.

    I know the OP mentioned concealed. However, as a GA resident I cannot legally carry a regular pistol openly or concealed in SC.

    So, it looks like there is the option of a black-powder pistol carried openly, if the laws haven't changed since 2010 on this.

    It's called the 2nd Amendment, and if all I can carry is a BP pistol openly, I'll take it. It's NOT skirting the law if it is not against the law. If I am arrested falsely, I assume I can sue and win at least my attorney's fees.

    Why should I be deprived of life or health (from a criminal attack if unarmed) just because I want to visit SC? I've lawfully carried in GA for over twenty years. Is my life or my family's lives worth less just because we cross state lines?

    That's what your question was!!!! I am a little confused by the responses to your question. There are so many laws that forbid things. It makes it difficult to be sure that " there is no law" that would punish you for taking the LIBERTY.
    Here in Texas there is no law or provided penalty for carrying a BP/curio openly.
    The lack there of means one is free to take the LIBERTY to do so.

    Get a Walker Colt replica and give it a whirl to find out. I suspect you will be tired enough in an hour or so to give up on the idea.

    Ask the LEOs in the areas you plan to carry your hog leg. It is like nuking from orbit, it's the only way to know for sure.

    In this country, you do have the right to be arrested. This right is routinely employed by protesters under civil disobedience.

    My guess for this situation is that it would likely play out like a FOPA issue in New York.

    In that state, FOPA is an "affirmative defense." The law may protect you from a guilty verdict, but it does not prevent confiscation of the properly transported firearm, it won't prevent arrest and booking, it won't eliminate the need to post bail, and it will still be a pain to recover your property. The affirmative defense only applies in court, not on the side of the road.

    So while it is possible the law may have a hole big enough to squeeze a BP pistol through, you may also find yourself exercising your right to remain silent. You may also learn about other non-gun statutes, perhaps something in the area of public nuisance, health and safety, any number of issues having nothing to do with federal 2A rights.

    Im taking required "Continuing Legal Education" (CLEs) courses right now. I have one playing in the background.

    The one I am currently listening to is titled "Drafting Gun Trusts". I mention all this, as one of the first topics announced was "What is a firearm?". And I dont mean as in explaining what is a pistol or rifle to people that never saw a gun before, I mean as in the OPs initial post. Ie what counts, under what set of laws/definitions? Do black powder weapons count? Etc.

    Interesting topic.

    We have post after post pointing out the value of a reliable gun when it is needed most. I'm not sure why anyone would to carry the BP version when a reliable model is best. After all, the only reason to carry is for defensive purposes (I'm not talking about going hunting).

    Sir, QkShooter answered your question with legal quotes on the first page of this thread. It may not be legally a handgun, but it DOES fit your states definition of a Deadly Weapon, and is barred from carry.
    A 1911 is Not an obsession, it's simply a recognition that it's THE Gun. :-) All others are runner ups. And hey, if all else fails, aim for the nose and fling it to knock out your foe. Let's see y'all do that with a kel-Tec. ;-)
