The below information is designed to be a guide and not the final word. If you have specific questions, please refer to the South Carolina legislation at the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) at sled.sc.gov.

Residents of reciprocal states who hold permits issued by their states of residence may carry concealed firearms in South Carolina, but must abide by the restrictions in the South Carolina CWP law. For that reason, out of state residents of reciprocal states should familiarize themselves with restricted carry locations and other provisions of South Carolina law posted on this website.
