    Greetings from South Carolina

    Greetings all. I am new here and am taking my CWP class the first Saturday of April. I've lived in South Carolina for just over a year and Travel back and forth between here and Florida quite often. I'm considering in addition to getting the SC CWP, also getting the Florida CWP. So that I can carry while going through GA. Then I read about the NH CWP for those who have their CWP already, is only $20 (just send a photo copy of your cwp) and that sure seems much easier than Florida's and the $114 for their license. It looks to me that the combination of the two licenses (NH and SC) will give me the same reciprocity of having (SC and FL). Can anyone tell me if there is a reason I should pick one over the other when it comes to FL vs NH and their Non Resident CWP.

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    My personal opinion would be Florida. It's a picture ID and IIRC Florida is actively working on expanding reciprocity. I, however, admit I know nothing about NH CWP.

    I'd pick Florida's. If I'm not mistaken the permit is signed by Charles Bronson!!
    That would be pretty cool to have!

    Welcome from Florence, SC
    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.

    Welcome from Michigan!

    I'd suggest you ask your question again in the "Concealed Carry Issues" section of the Forum.
