    You can see that on the first map on SC Law Enforcement Division (SLED) site at which shows which states they honor. This brings to 29 the number of states South Carolina honors.
    https://www.sled.sc.gov/cwp.html#reciprocity


    There is a major problem on the SLED 2nd map which shows states they are saying honors the South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit. They are showing Colorado, Nevada, New Hampshire and Washington honor their License. These 4 states do not honor the South Carolina Permit. So be aware SC Permit Holders as what SLED is stating could get you arrested when you believed you were perfectly legal. You can see that for yourself at the links below. I have used their contact email to tell them of these errors and have left voice mail with those who are in charge of this and have received no replies. With these major errors on who honors them I am concerned there may be errors in who they honor. You can contact SLED at [email protected] or at 803.896.7015

    Colorado - https://cbi.stg.colorado.gov/sectio...unit/concealed-handgun-permit-chp-reciprocity

    Nevada - https://rccd.nv.gov/uploadedFiles/gsdnvgov/content/Resources/2021 State listx(16 July 21).pdf

    New Hampshire
    - https://www.nhsp.dos.nh.gov/our-ser...s-and-licensing/pistol-and-revolver-licensing This really doesn’t matter as NH is a Permitless Carry State but they shouldn’t list it as a state that honors the SC CWP when they don’t.

    Washington - https://www.atg.wa.gov/concealed-weapons

    SLED is also reporting that Utah doesn’t honor the South Carolina CWP. Utah honors all other states permit/licenses. https://bci.utah.gov/concealed-firearm/reciprocity-with-other-states/

    Update: Looks like someone in SLED got the word. They have removed the map showing what states that honored their permit that showed WA, DE, NH and CO honoring the SC permit when they didn’t. Hoping they put it back but with the correct listing. I didn’t hear from them so someone out there must have made contact that got their attention. Thank You! Gary Slider

    Thanks for the update, curious as to why they don't accept their close neighbor Florida though?

    bennj, SC does honor FL. They just added those 4 states to the list. SC honors 29 other states. Just go to https://handgunlaw.us and click on the initials of any state on the map and that states page will open. The map at the top of each states page shows what states honor that states permit. The next section down list the states that that state honors if they honor any at all.

    Of course you are correct about that, but it doesn't apply to non-residents. I am in NJ and applied for a FL ccw license about 2 months ago. I didn't mean to misinform anyone, and hope SC and other states with similar restrictions reverse course.

    Colorado honors states that honor their license and meet other basic criteria. Colorado doesn't even require the state in question to have a similar licensing system.

    If SC honors a CO permit, they should receive reciprocity as the law stands.

    SC does not honor CO and has never stated they did. SC put out that CO honored them when they didn't. SC also stated that NH, NV and WA honored them when they didn't. This was the problem. SC was stating states honored them when they didn't. This could have gotten SC permit holders arrested.
