    Question Driving to Myrtle Beach, can I CC or OC on my way there?

    Hey everybody, I'm driving to Myrtle Beach tomorrow and I was not sure if I was going to bring a firearm or not? Im taking the family on vacation there, we rented a condo on the beach.
    Once again I'm looking for your expertise in this area... Can I cc on the way there? Will there be states that don't have a recipacle CPL laws?

    Thx in adviance, T-Mack

    So to me it looks like the states I would be driving through accept Michigan permits?

    Ive OC and CC in OH WV VA but not the Carolinas

    need to brush up on all of them, i was surprised when I seen WVA had no handguns sign in the rest area and I found conflicting info on weither like ohio hose signs has weight of law

    VA no issue at all, I've been around VA many times in the last couple years with zero issues.

    You OCing on the bike??? again in Oh, WVA and VA no issues at all.

    Just remember SC is a no OC state. But CC is okay with a MI CPL.

    Check out the "Pack & Go" feature at carryconcealed.net
    http://apps.carryconcealed.net/packngo/index.php

    Just click on the states you're transiting. It'll give you a printable summary of both CC and OC restrictions and reciprocity.

    Except that it is wrong. Besides that, it works great. (sarcasm) Although the states which are wrong are ostensibly not on the op's trip, I think an error in two state's acceptance indicates to me it is not well researched. Oh, if you are wondering which states are incorrect, Hint: M-a-i-n-e and W-i-s-c-o-n-s-i-n

    However, at the top of the pdf found here: http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/michigan.pdf , there is a map that shows all of the states which honor the MI CPL.

    Sure, it's standard. But that in no way negates what I said. Both of the states I mentioned above have accepted the MI CPL since November. I emailed the website last December and the errors still remain. If you are suggesting that everyone should just talk to an attorney....all I can say is YES, that would be wise but it is still important to give as accurate information as possible.
    Handgunlaw.us also has a similar disclaimer. But, at handgunlaw.us, when I've emailed the website regarding errors, Gary Slider changes it... sometimes within minutes. Also, when NM decided to drop recognition of the MI CPL last week, Mr Slider changed the website information immediately... and changed it back when NM decided they had made an error. I prefer to get my information from reliable sources, instead of depending on those who refuse to change information even months after being informed of the error. Handgunlaw.us also gives links to the law so the reader can even see it for him-/herself.
