    You can have your gun in a shut not locked glovebox and transport it to your rented room if you are not otherwise prohibited. I'll cite the law in a moment.

    SECTION 23-31-230. Carrying concealed weapons between automobile and accommodation.

    Notwithstanding any provision of law, any person may carry a concealable weapon from an automobile or other motorized conveyance to a room or other accommodation he has rented and upon which an accommodations tax has been paid.

    SECTION 16-23-20. Unlawful carrying of handgun; exceptions.

    It is unlawful for anyone to carry about the person any handgun, whether concealed or not, except as follows, unless otherwise specifically prohibited by law:

    (9) a person in a vehicle if the handgun is:

    (a) secured in a closed glove compartment, closed console, closed trunk, or in a closed container secured by an integral fastener and transported in the luggage compartment of the vehicle; however, this item is not violated if the glove compartment, console, or trunk is opened in the presence of a law enforcement officer for the sole purpose of retrieving a driver's license, registration, or proof of insurance; or

    Correct. Basically, it will be secured in your car when your not at your beach accommodation. When in your rental/hotel room/ etc. - it will be in your room.

    Technically, since you are the legal "possessor" of the room/cabin - you should be able to carry it openly on your person only while inside the confines of that room/cabin. You can't walk outside or into a hallway with it.

    Actually I suspect SC will continue to try to move forward with relaxing gun carry laws. There have been some attempts and they gain ground every time.

    As for NC - As long as we stay watchful and hold our ground - I don't see the anti's ever being successful in NC

    That is not so! The only effective grassroots, i.e., unaffiliated, gun rights groups is evidently still under court order in an anction brought by the Loonies. South Carolina is firmly in the grip of its affiliated gun group Gun Owners of SC. You do not know what you are about.

    SECTION 16-23-20. Unlawful carrying of handgun; exceptions.

    Whatever your thoughts on getting a CHP, and I know some chaff at the idea of paying the man for permission to carry, which is really down right silly and stubborn to a fault compared to not being able to have your gun with you to defend your life.

    Want a constitutional CC, you're not going to accomplish it by refusing to apply for a CHP.

    sooooo.....in the time it took you to look up the info and type out your sarcastic "IPSE" response...you could've looked up some information that actually helped the OP..."just saying glad you posted the outdated stuff tho"...get some frign SA. You are not dealing with children here who do not see the assholism in your responses....and regularly.
    Read, re-read, and back off and re-read again before you hit submit reply. We're all on the same side here. You make half of us want to ignore your posts because you think you're a know it all, an Admin, or a Mod.

    Glad you posted a bunch of BS that helps NO-ONE......ipse, you made my point.

    Good luck in SC J-SIN. SC is not gun friendly. You've already seen some good links to the mentality you'll see there.

    Thank you. It is not sarcasm, but it is ignorance.

    There has not been a substantive advance in the right to carry a gun in South Carolina since the principals of Grassroots Gun Rights South Carolina collaborated in the writing and passage of South Carolina's Law Abiding Citizens Self-Defense Act of 1996. Subsequently GRGRSC was enjoined from further activism by court action brought by Loonies affiliated with the organization mentioned in SECTION 23-31-210. Definitions.(5) "Proof of training" (b), which business model is to sell dispensations from the infringement of the COTUS Second Amendment and SC Constitution Article I, Section 20.

    Constitutional Carry and open carry are still effectively infringed. SECTION 16-23-20. Unlawful carrying of handgun; exceptions. It is unlawful for anyone to carry about the person any handgun, whether concealed or not, except as follows, unless otherwise specifically prohibited by law:

    Hope you had a good time. I just got back from Myrtle Beach. I have my CHP and was able to carry. Not as comfortable as OC and I had to get a new holster so I could carry. Not a bad one for what it does. I also brought my lockable gun case with me so I could lock my pistol up in the truck while we were at the pool or the beach. I don't trust the safes in those rooms very much.

    so razor, from your perspective, my post about nightmare's posted information was sarcasm with nightmare stating my post was based on ignorance.

    well, the information posted by nightmare which stated:

    quote That is not so! The only effective grassroots, i.e., unaffiliated, gun rights groups is evidently still under court order in an anction (sic) brought by the Loonies. South Carolina is firmly in the grip of its affiliated gun group Gun Owners of SC. You do not know what you are about. unquote.

    and nightmare posted a link to support his hyperbole statement to show the information as viable, and is informative to the OP in response to their query.

    being SC's neighbour and a regular and active traveler to those states around me, i was interested in discerning further viable information for my own edification.

    lo & behold, i find nightmare's cite they posted showed a horribly outdated website which in no way supported his comments, thus causing misleading information being posted. what you perceive as sarcasm on my part, was, in fact, substantiation and collaboration to my post's initial statement to save others the time to validate for themselves my statement. just clicking on each page was significantly outdated and thus worthless information to the question at hand.

    razor, while i appreciate your concern on how i spend my time, however, it is my contention, those who post should provide substantiated and viable information instead of personal and biased hyperbole for those readers who might not take the time to validate the information presented.

    you may of course not waste your time reading my post and take nightmare's post as Gospel, i for one will stick my hand in His side to validate what i am seeing.

    ipse

    addendum: it appears SC as backward as TX and therefore will CC upon any trips south

    Get offended much? I don't think I have agreed much with solus, but that doesn't mean I am uber-sensative. In this case - he was pointing out a logical and real flaw with Nightmare's posting. We are supposedly all adults, so don't take things so personal. Remember - tone is hard to convey in the written word.

    Read, re-read, and back off and re-read again before you hit submit reply.
    Might want to do the same yourself....

    We're all on the same side here. You make half of us want to ignore your posts because you think you're a know it all, an Admin, or a Mod.
    Yes, solus does come across badly at times. But we are all on the same side, generally speaking. Thus - pointing out when someone has OUTDATED information that could cause harm to another - it is useful, provided people are willing to pay attention and learn.

    So what do you call quoting a website that can't even accurately note who the governor is?

    There has not been a substantive advance in the right to carry a gun in South Carolina since the principals of Grassroots Gun Rights South Carolina collaborated in the writing and passage of South Carolina's Law Abiding Citizens Self-Defense Act of 1996. Subsequently GRGRSC was enjoined from further activism by court action brought by Loonies affiliated with the organization mentioned in SECTION 23-31-210. Definitions.(5) "Proof of training" (b), which business model is to sell dispensations from the infringement of the COTUS Second Amendment and SC Constitution Article I, Section 20.
    In the last 3 years, you have had legislation introduced (though defeated) that has raised awareness and increased pressure on the legislature. SC currently has a very pro-gun governor - one who came out in support of the bill to allow for open carry. It's like football - you don't throw for a touchdown every time and complain when you don't get anywhere - you run plays that move the ball more and more toward your goal.

    Constitutional Carry and open carry are still effectively infringed. SECTION 16-23-20. Unlawful carrying of handgun; exceptions. It is unlawful for anyone to carry about the person any handgun, whether concealed or not, except as follows, unless otherwise specifically prohibited by law:
    Very true. So support those legislators who want to change this. Sue the state over the infringement. Or at least provide timely information about a subject you are rightly passionate about. Failure to do so calls your credibility into question. Not something you would want an anti' to say about you - so better get corrected here, among friends - than out there arguing for a right and making yourself look out of date and uninformed.

    scfirearms.org is the stale website of GRGRSC. That y'all didn't bother to read beyond the top page is suggestive.

    forgive me for being obtuse at this juncture in my adult life, but beyond what top page? and you now state the website you posted is stale website, which one do you wish the OP and other readers to go to for information on this topic?

    there are a great many things i have done in my life, mind reading is not among them...say what you mean, mean what you say...

    not butt hurt and not particularly over sensitive....I just don't like condescending people that "talk down" to folks......in almost every post.....all over the OC board....that's all.

    Thanks for not being too damaging on the follow on posts.

    @solus Don't apologize for being "obtuse" ahead of time, just don't be obtuse, ask the question in a polite respectful manner and you'll usually get a polite respectful response.

    I truly still look forward to meeting you guys. I'm OCONUS APO AE and won't be home for awhile to enjoy my CONUS 2A...but I do enjoy reading about your experiences.
