    Concealed carry is legal with a South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permits (CWP) or a license/permit from a state that South Carolina honors. CWPs are issued to residents, non-residents who own property in the state and military personnel stationed in South Carolina. Concealed carry permits require a firearms training course that has been approved by the state. The minimum age to obtain a CWP is 21 years old. In terms of reciprocity, South Carolina does not honor non-resident permits from other states. Some areas are off-limits, including schools and courthouses.



    If it is ever your misfortune to be attacked, alertness will have given you a little warning, decisiveness will have given you a proper course to pursue, and if that course is to counterattack, carry it out with everything you've got! Be indignant. Be angry. Be aggressive.

    SC only honors resident CC permits from the states with which it has reciprocity. It does not honor non-resident permits from those states. So you would need to have a resident permit from NC. For instance, if you only had a non-resident permit from VA, SC would not accept that.

    I find their wording misleading sometimes. Such as the first sentence: "Concealed carry is legal with a South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permits (CWP) or a license/permit from a state that South Carolina honors." That sentence, taken alone, is not true. It is legal only with a resident permit. They say that later, but if you just read the first sentence, it is wrong. USCCA does not make the laws in SC, they only report them and reporting is only as good as the writing.

    Perhaps this will help South Carolina Law Enforcement Division

    Florida does likewise, will not honor any permit of which one is not a resident. Prevents acceptance of those who collect permits like Eagle Scout merit badges.

    Doesn’t Florida however offer a non-resident permit? A friend of mine has several to allow carry in more states. Not sure which all he had IN is honored by like 28states and with one of his others he gained like 10 more I believe in which he could carry.

    Florida offers a Concealed Weapons and Firearm License (CWFL), which it issues to residents and non-residents alike. There is no distinction between resident and non-resident on the license itself. It doesn't even list an address on it, so it is not lawful "ID" and lawful ID must be presented with the license upon request. Technically I'd say you might be a non-resident with a Florida license.

    Use the concealed carry site. Type in select North Carolina. The map will show what states accept NC permit. Apparently SC will accept a NC resident permit.

    The SC LE web site lists states that SC has reciprocity. Rather than trusting the third party web site (concealed carry) it is better to check the gov source of the state you want to travel to. Also call that states LE or DOJ to be sure.

    From the SC website.
    So a NC resident permit holder should be OK.

    As a comparison.
    The concealed carry tool is set up to provide states that accept the reference state.
    So if you identify NC as the reference state in the tool, then the map presents all state status. This also shows that SC accepts the NC resident permit.

    Contact the SC Attorney General's Office, or start with www.handgunlaw.us, Gary Slider does a very good job keeping up with state requirements.

    I think the agency in South Carolina is going to be listed under the acronym SLED South Carolina Law Enforcement Division
