    Disabled Vet and the Concealed Handgun License (CHL) application

    As a note of interest to any SC disabled vet, When I took my SC CHL course the instructor did not know the details concerning the application process for disabled vet's.
    I am 10% disabled and wasn't sure whether the part about disabled vet's getting their CHL for free applied to me or not. Some benefits only apply to higher percentages of disability.
    A call to SLED confirmed that it did, so I got the CHL without paying the fee.
    If you are a disabled vet this info is for you......

    Yep, 10% and above is free! Renewals are free also. The last time I renewed my CWP I did it online. Went through quick and easy with no charge.

    I wonder if Minnesota is the same way? I'm a 30% disabled vet, and that would have been GREAT to know when I went through.

    Good to know that. I'll post a link to this on SC Gun Talk as well.

    I've never had to pay for mine. Also if you use the online renewal it knows if you are a disabled vet and after 3 or 4 keystrokes you are done with no charge.
