Thread: Will be working in the Carolinas

  1. Will be working in the Carolinas

    Hello all!
    Starting this month I will be working in NC and SC. If I'm not mistaken, NC has reciprocity for GWL while not for SC.
    How can I move around SC with a firearm without violating their gun laws?
    Thanks in advance.

  3. In South Carolina, you can keep a loaded handgun in the glove compartment or center console of your vehicle. Actually, you can keep it in any closed compartment in your car. The compartment doesn't have to be locked or even have a lock but it does need to be closed. In North Carolina, your reciprocity allows you to keep it just about anywhere.

    Actually, I don't believe this is entirely true. You must have a South Carolina or reciprocal state permit to have a hand gun in any compartment in your car. Without a recognized permit, you may keep a loaded pistol in a closed glove compartment, closed center console, or a closed container secured with fasteners in your trunk. If you don't have a trunk, the container can be stored in the luggage area of the vehicle.

    I think that's what @Throttletop is basically saying.

    When in doubt, RTFM. See www.handgunlaw.us.

    "Any closed compartment in your car" is not correct if you don't have a recognized permit.
