    Does that mean I can legally carry one in my "motorized conveyance" in SC? I thought that was prohibited w/o a SC permit or one from a state SC recognizes.

    Man, I'd hate to think I've been legal the last couple of trips...

    SC is working on a bill, H 3212, that is a Senate vote and Gov sig. away from being law, effective upon signature of the Governor. The legislature meets through June 9th. The bill grants reciprocity to all states licenses. If it's passed and signed and your trip is later in the month, you could be golden. Keep a watch right here!

    Yes, SC has had a law for a long time that you can keep one in the glove box without a permit. You can also carry it from there into your hotel room.

    If I can atleast have it in the car and hotel room...that's great. If they could sign the bill before I get there...that would be golden.

    No, I've just been facinated by the place ever since childhood. History...what can I say. I'd move there in a hearbeat under the right circumstances.

    Actually, my family is taking a vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC, towards the end of June. So, I'm hoping this gets passed there by then. 8)

    Otherwise, it'll just be in the car / condo. *sigh*

    When your there you MUST go to the Mad Boar at Barefoot Landing. Brew Pub with really good beers and great food to boot.

    Make sure you take a carriage tour of downtown, they usually last about an hour or so and they will take you everywhere. Bunch of my friends used to be tour guides during the tourist season. Also make sure you check out the market, battery, and Fort Sumter. If you watch "Gone with the wind" you'll recognized parts of Charleston, as well as "The Patriot" with Mel Gibson, it was filmed mostly out by John's Island.

    A really good place to go hang out after touring, is at the WindJammer on Isle of Palms, out past Mount Pleasant, as well as Front Beach. And Downtown has Wet Willies, Wild Wings, (best wings ever, something like 50 different flavors) and Tommy Condon's Irish Pub. Some of the best food in SC is at the Crab Shack, and Vickories (don't remember if it's spelled right).

    In Mt. Pleasant there is a Wild Wings that always has something going on, as well as other good resturants. If you get the chance, go to Red's Icehouse on Shem Creek. Used to be an icehouse for the shrimpers to bring their daily catch in and sell. A local, named Red bought it before he died, and it was turned into a restaurant/bar. Very nice atmosphere, and all the locals hang out there, very laid back and relaxing. When I lived there they had a crowsnest bar with overstuffed couches. It was about 20 ft in the air over Red's and overlooked Shem Creek Inlet to the ocean. Very nice place to take a date when the sun was going down.

    Yep, like I said I'd move there if everything was right. I can never seem to have enough time down there. Every time we leave, I always feel like I missed out on something.

    I know it is getting late at night when I imagine asbrand is Gimli (his avatar) saying the above post.
