I know OC is illegal in SC, but there are exceptions. One exception is as follows:

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:

(8) a person in his home or upon his real property or a person who has the permission of the owner or the person in legal possession or the person in legal control of the home or real property;


OC'd at my parents' house and around their yard. No issues.

I plan on OC'ing when I go back down to SC again when I go hunting with my Dad too. I fully expect some guff from the local swine. The exception is as follows:

(4) licensed hunters or fishermen who are engaged in hunting or fishing or going to or from their places of hunting or fishing while in a vehicle or on foot;

If there's already a SC OC thread, sorry! I didn't see it upon a few page search!

OC'd at the hunt club in Heath Springs area. Also been OCing in the yard and around the house. Nothing much to talk about, except that I really don't miss Rock Hill at all and the police presence here is borderline ridiculous.

Looking forward to deer season. Maybe I'll have time to hit the woods down here this year.
