    Simple explanation for that. They want you to pay for a FL non-resident permit, if they honored NR permits they would lose out on all those fees.

    #1 - keep the gun concealed in South Carolina and don't draw attention to yourself and chances are 99.5% that you won't have a leo encounter that will involve your firearm to begin with.

    #2 - Your active duty permanent duty orders to Florida, your active duty military ID card, and your Florida permit should together establish that you have a Florida resident permit. (See 27 CFR 478.11 and ATF Rule 2001-5).

    Exactly.

    You are correct.

    Hypocrisy at its best.
