    My family and I plan to vacation at Myrtle Beach, SC this summer. I have an Indiana resident Concealed Carry Permit. From other reseach I have done on the net, I see that theredoesn't seem to bereciprocity for IN permits in SC (tho' it seems to go the other way). Anyhow, I guess my questionsare simple... What can I do to carry my weapon while on vacation? Is it legal to keepmy weaponin my hotel room (locked in a gunsafe, of course)? Is it legal to carry in my vehicle?

    or... Should I just stay home? =)

    Any info/advice from SC members is appreciated.. thx!

    T,

    If you check out this thread, I think you'll find most of the info you're looking for in the posts and in the links. If you'd still like further clarification, don't hesitate to ask either on forum or by PM, I'm always happy to help.

    Whatever you do, don't stay home.The Beach is a great place to visit in the summertime.

    Thanks for the reply and information!

    IF I read the info you linked tocorrectly, and not being a lawyer, I am not sure I did...

    I cannot(?) carry concealed or open in SC. But, I can have my weapon in the car, in the glovebox, or console (loaded)... And, I can have my weapon in my hotel room (loaded).

    Thanks, T.

    Correct. You can bring it with you and have it in your car glove box, console or trunk (luggage area for SUV's) loaded or unloaded. The glove box does not have to be locked.

    Once you get to you motel you can take it out of your car and carry it OC or CC (better to conceal so you don't scare anyone but legal either way) and keep it in your room.

    If you are on priate property and the owner say OK then you can OC or CC. You can also OC or CC while fishing or hunting as long as you have a fishing ro hunting license. If you want to do some surf fishing then you can strap it on and OC while you fish. Have a great time but stay away from Atlantic Beach.

    If I may horn in on this existing thread, since more likely than not the carry questions apply to me too...

    Need advice re: Myrtle Beach spring break accomodations

    My son and some friends want to go to Myrtle Beach after graduation (high school) and have secured a house on 2nd Avenue South, but Google's street view gives me some pause.

    We are also considering locations on North and South Ocean Blvd., and of course one or more parents will be in Myrtle Beach, though not in the property being rented (unless required).

    We're looking for a low cost, safe, fun area and would be appreciative of any insight or suggestions.

    I'd be glad to answer questions anyone may have.

    Thanks fellas.

    My recommendation is to get out of Myrtle Beach and get a place on North Myrtle Beach. It's only a mile or so up the road but it's much less crowded and cheaper to boot. That's what my wife and I do when we go for a weekend.

    We always stay at Floyd's Motel on 2nd Ave N, 843-280-3026. It's a little Mom & Pop (Pat & Ed?) place half a block from the beach. It used to have a great view, but it's getting surrounded by big ugly boxes (condos). Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
