I was born and rasied in SC, but left the state at the age of 21 because of my job. It has been a number of years since I left, but I am thinking about moving back and was wondering what the process is for purchasing a handgun. The state I currently live in requires a background check, 10 day waiting period, and a 25 question gun safety test. Also, are there any recommended gun shops in the Charleston SC area...thx!
