    I know the base's policies but I need to know SC's law. I have a CCP from Alabama. I do not really care about carrying in SC as most of my time will be on the base. My question is, what are the rules for the gun being in my vehicle from the time I hit the SC line until I get to the base? Glovebox or trunk only? Loaded, unloaded?

    Thanks!
