With violence and guns crimes on the rise in the US, why should you subject yourself to being a victim of a serious crime?

By virtue of the Second Amendment and the State of South Carolina you can protect yourself and others. Given the right guidance, instruction, and knowledge, you can be a SC Concealed Weapons Permit Holder.

It takes about 5 hours to receive the training and instruction and conduct an actual performance qualification to become a permit holder and be legal.

The South Carolina Legislature has made it legal for you to carry a firearm to protect your life or someone else’s life in a life-or-death incident.

Don’t wait any longer…take the first steps and schedule your class now.

Emily Sanders

I’ve been meaning to get a CWP for awhile now. A friend recommended Buddy and his prices are very reasonable.  Very happy I “pulled the trigger” haha

Harold Green

I already knew a good bit about guns and gun laws, just happy that now I can legally carry a firearm.
