    What Would You Do-SC CWP & FL vs UT

    So I finally got around to finishing up all my documents photos etc for my SC CWP, I mailed it off today to SLED in Columbia!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOHOOO Cant Wait!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have talked to a few other SC cwp holders and turn around is roughly 90-120 days from what I'm hearing, I just wanted to check and see what other SC cwp holders experienced time frame wise to recieve their permit. I figure with the holidays I hopefully plan on recieving it hopefully sometime in Febuary, maybe it will be a Bday present to me as mine is the 10th of FEB.

    I'm debating on whether to get my UT or FL non resident permit, I need to be able to carry in the entire southeast to include LA, MS, GA, FL, TN, AL, SC, & NC both would enable me to do so and with either/or I'll be legal in roughly 33 states, so the only issue is cost and the ability to apply for the FL permit w/o having my sc cwp already, (is this correct???), is UT the same or I need my Sc CWP first???

    UT is cheaper at 66.25$ vs FL 117.00$ But I have met the FL training req being active military but for UT I'll have to complete a course by a UT certified instructor which would even out the cost....

    What Shall I do....any suggestions..What Would You Do

    I searched and google my options before I asked just to be semi straight before i asked advice

    As for me the PA non resident permit along with my SCCWP works for me. I did have New Hampshire non resident til they went to $100.00. Good Luck!

    Whichever gets me GA.

    It took me almost the complete 90 days. I think I was about 2 days shy. My wife's came in about 4 days earlier.

    Just make sure that your NON-RESIDENT Florida permit or your NON-RESIDENT Utah permit will be valid in the states you want to carry in.

    I think there are five states that only accept resident CWP's. You SC permit gives you Fl and most of the other SE states. The PA permit will give you GA and a few others. That's what I did. If you absolutely had to have Miss and Alabama, I would sniff at the difference, considering you're only gaining those two states for the cost and time. Go for the Ut

    Re: What Would You Do-SC CWP & FL vs UT

    with taking the required class for UT ...price will be about the same as FL, & Im assuming since im ONLY like 3-4hrs from FL Ill get my FL faster since UT is on the opposite coast
    I have to have MS bc my mom & grandparents live in MS & Dad, brother n sister in LA

    AL will just be good for traveling from SC TO LA/MS

    Re: What Would You Do-SC CWP & FL vs UT

    I'm from SC. I took my class in the first weekend in January and received my CWP at the very end of March (30th or so). Like an earlier poster, my wife got hers a week before mine even though we took the same class and mailed in the info at the same time.
