What's the problem between SC and Georgia not honoring each other's permits? Neither state is OC I believe. I know SC is not, so does anybody know why there is no reciprocity agreement? I occasionally travel to Savannah and am curious as to what is allowed in GA. I know I can have the weapon in the car under GA law, same as SC, but apparently can't carry it anywhere on my SC permit.

I think you are correct..........

did some searching and it appears that GA has no "training" requirement similar to the SC CWP class and qualification requirement. Based on that alone, it would appear that GA should honor an SC permit, because it seems that SC has a higher standard of training requirement (even though it's only an 8 hour class). Well, I'm sure politics also enters into it.

Pretty much covered. As has been notes SC requires training, GA does not.

GA says "We'll recognize anyone who recognizes ours."
SC says "We won't recognize anyone's who doesn't require training, and you can't get out of it by getting a non-resident permit from a state we Do recognize."

GA says, "Call me, maybe."

so once again..............

Political BS trumps all, and the common man goes away with nothing.........

we are stupid for sending the same jerks back to office each time they come up for reconfirmation.

just a guess.......

but I think it's because MS has open carry and SC does not. SC requires training and the permit for CC, but does not have OC as a general law. MS allows OC but I think requires a permit for CC. SC doesn't reciprocate with Alabama either, and Alabama has OC also. SC does reciprocate with NC, but NC has "limited" open carry, which can be limited by individual localities, so I'm not really sure if SC considers that true "OC". It's confusing but it's the only reason I can see at this point. Somebody else may have a better explanation.

Maybe....Still makes no sense to me since in SC I would still need my permit for CC, I cant OC in SC anyways.
