I currently have my CCW in Boulder County, Colorado. Although my mailing address is there, I actually full-time in my RV.
With that said, South Dakota is much easier to use as a residence for full-time RV'ers so I plan to make the move there next month. My only real question is the transfer of my CCW. Do I need a physical address in SD to get a CCW or will a PO Box do the trick?
Seems to me like you need a physical address to meet the requirements of SD Codified Laws:
South Dakota Codified Laws
A PO Box does not establish residency. Call the sheriff of the county you plan to reside in...I would think that if you rent a space with a physical address for a month, you could use that rental agreement as proof of residency in that county.23-7-7.1.
