If you have a Florida Permit, you can carry in Georgia, but not in South Carolina. You can have a loaded pistol in the pocket or console in SC.

Correct, Trunk, Console, or glove box. But if you go to NC, you have to move it out in the open. Dash, passanger seat, etc..... very odd. I travel there and forget to move it all the time.

Whats the difference between carrying in GA and carrying in SC in your pocket???? I'm confused.

Incorrect for the statements made about SC and NC.

I live in SC and CWP or not, you can still have a loaded handgun in the glovebox or console, but not in any door pocket.

As for NC, I recently traveld there and called the NC DOJ to clarify their stupid laws. Basically, if it is in the glove box, it is concealed (lets assume you don;t have a CWP)...if it is out on the dash, it is considered a "threat to a LEO."

I have a CWP for SC and NC carry, so I just had it in the console and took my chances that that classified as "on or about my person."

Why not just call the proper authorities and get the correct info directly from "the horses mouth"

bryant is correct. In South Carolina,it is legal to carry a loaded weapon in a glove box, console, or any compartment that closes. It does NOT have to be locked. This applies whether you have a CWP or not. It is not OK to carry in a backpack, bag, purse, etc. It has to be a closed compartment like listed above.

Opps, I meant glove box or console. Don't know where pocket came from. GA has reciprocity with FL for concealed carry. NC also.
