Residents of reciprocal states who hold permits issued by their states of residence may carry
concealed firearms in South Carolina, but must abide by the restrictions in the South Carolina
CWP law. For that reason, out of state residents of reciprocal states should familiarize
themselves with restricted carry locations and other provisions of South Carolina law posted
on this website. South Carolina permittees who carry firearms in reciprocal states are
likewise responsible for familiarizing themselves with the applicable laws and regulations of
the reciprocal state. Web sites of those states may be accessed by selecting the desired state
name listed above.
As of March 1, 2016, South Carolina and Virginia no longer have concealed weapon permit reciprocity. Proposed legislative changes to Virginia law may permanently re-instate reciprocity with South Carolina prior to March 1st and this website will be updated accordingly.
