For all those who have been waiting, the Governor signed into law South Carolina's first non resident CCW. The only snag is that one must own property in SC to obtain said CCW.

Not a big deal, there's ways around this requirement (EG).

Additionally, SC's first stand your ground law was signed into law on Friday as well.

Good job South Carolina!

Woo Hoo, if they get rid of the Real Property clause (or someone smarter than I could show me how to get around it), the permit would be FREE to ME :banana:

payment of a fifty-dollar application fee. This fee must be waived for disabled veterans and retired law enforcement officers; and

*I think that all states should have this clause in their permit laws :tongue: (you know, the I've got mine, the heck with yours attitude)

Easy enough to own property in order to satisfy the requirement: Someone buy or currently owns a plot of land and sell shares of land ownership.

That, or a group of people buy a time share in SC......Times shares can be deeded.

That's a step in the right direction. Now if they'd just honor GA resident's permits.........


Guess I need to find some property in SC now :aargh4:

CCW Law - SC

Hello Steel Horse:

I appreciate the info, as I just closed a deal on a land purchase and now having a home built in Beaufort county. I have been wondering on how to ascertain a CCW in South Carolina, as I will re-locate there in June of 2007. I currently reside in the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts....

Thank you,

Stephen:icon_neutral:

Stand your Ground

Steel horse thanks for the info!

Do you have a link that reviews the new "stand your ground" legislation for SC? Thanks!

I envy you.

I grew up in MA, lived in NC and SC for 6 years before coming back to MA.

Wife and I really loved it there! We plan on eventually settling down for good somewhere in the Carolina's. Living in MA is the pitts.

Now I need to find out how to get some land in SC so I can get a CCW permit for when we visit friends there (covered in NC with my NH permit). Best of luck.

It drives me nuts that SC is the only state in the south that i can't carry in. What sucks is that i travel in the state regularly for work. How is there away around it? I don't see a non-resident permit i can get that is honored in SC.

You know I was just researching this yesterday, heh...I drive down to FL a lot so I frequent NC, SC, and GA as well...Since I'm covered in NC w/ my CCW in VA. I'll have my CCW for NH soon which covers me in GA, this left SC. I either buy property there or go to TX get an ID and take a safety class. If I ever vacation in TX maybe I'll do just that...SC is slowly going in the right direction though. So I'll just wait unless someone has any suggestions.

I own several Time Share properties in Hilton Head. I called BCSO and they told me that that was a new question to them. I have legal property deeds to a specific address in Hilton Head even though it is not a permanent residence, and am CCW permitted in KY & FL. They told me that it appeared that time share was sufficient but that it was up to State authorities. Any other comments on this?

MangoJoe,

Heck, I would try it out to see what happens. Worse case is they say no and give you back your money.

Mango, sounds like you may be the test case.

I spend a lot of time in SC, so I would love to be able to "get legal" to carry in their state. I also happen to have a friend that owns 15 acres in Aiken County. It is undeveloped and mostly brush, he is thinking about making it a hunting lease. Looks like I need to talk him into selling me a small piece of it.

Buy a time share on Hilton Head and you should qualify...

Hello SC...From FL...

I live in Florida and know very little about SC. How close is SC to recognizing FL...what is the problem, exactly? :confused: Does anyone know?
I have camped in SC in years past. Now that I carry 24/7, I have kind of stayed away from SC...it's a matter of principle for me.:stups:
Any info woudl be appreciated...:banana:

Hello Everyone:

I just applied for a South Carolina CCW (mailed it out on Friday 22 Sep) and hoping for the best. I am hoping that they accept the supporting documentation for evidence of property owned.

I will keep everyone advised. I own a time share on Hilton Head Island and a piece of property (under construction) in Beaufort County.

Hey there secinv :wave:

I live in Bft Cnty, and am just guessing, but are you building in the Hwy 278 area of the county?

If for some reason you don't get your permit, when you move into the area, let me know and I can hook you up with our CCW instructor. I just finished my class about 2 weeks ago and mailed everything off yesterday.

SC options WITHOUT ccw permit

While this is not nearly as good as having your permit, you (and others) might want to keep in mind that the law already allows concealed carry while traveling in your vehicle in your unlocked glove box or console (NOT on your person, however) and also allows for concealed transport from your vehicle to a hotel/motel room and back to your vehicle (in absence of the specific restrictions, this WOULD presumably be legally allowed on your person): (See Attached JPG for exact replication of the code)

The attachment prints nicely to be trimmed out and folded in half to yield a business card sized reference that I personally laminated and carry with me in absence of a SC ccw permit. Remember that not everyone you encounter knows the law and it's a lot more effective to be able to refer to a specific title, chapter, article and section by exact quote than just to cite that "the SC law allows this type of carry"

Good luck with your permit, please keep us up to date on the results of listing your timeshare as your means to be a "qulified nonresident", but in the mean time, Be safe and happy packing! :smile:

CCW South Carolina

Hi Sean:

You are correct and looking forward to leaving the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts for South Carolina.

My application was received one week ago, so waiting on the response from SLED. I am hoping that they approve everything that was enclosed for this permit.

Thank you,

Stephen
