    Gunshop owners are not experts in gun laws. If you want an accurate answer to your questions you need to look up the specific laws of the states you're talking about being in or pay a lawyer. Don't trust the internet for accuracy. Seems to me a great deal of people are more worried about someone thinking you are carrying than actually trying to find the right gun for themselves. I can only relate to the laws in Texas but if your gun "prints" a little under your shirt or it even accidently gets exposed, it is NOT against the law. You will get in trouble if you expose or brandish your firearm on purpose. I've been carrying 18 years and surely must have "printed" and been seen one time or another. Nothing happens. I'm with Steve, carry the biggest gun you can for accuracy (longer sight radius, more power, probably more
    rounds, etc.). Accuracy is the prime factor regardless of caliber. Just my two bits. I personally carry a small (3") 1911 in .45 ACP.

    My winter months condo in the south I can't legally carry concealed because I don't own the property (I lease it).
    The only way to get a nonresident permit in South Carolina is to own real property there. Maybe you should consider spending winters down in Georgia where they will honor your PA permit.

    That is generally true however as I mentioned before in this case the shop owner is also a certified instructor for the state tests / permits - He holds the 8 hour classes a few times each month, with four (4) hours spent on gun laws and the other half on gun safety and the firing range.

    Although you should consult either a lawyer or the actual laws involved, here, I believe, is your answer:

    Pretty obviously, that's what the gunshop-owner/instructor was trying to tell you.

    Without a doubt. The other question is "Does that permit enable buying handguns in SC?"

    (Enough hijacking of the OP's thread, thanks).

    I tried them all! I finally chose the Beretta Nano as my EDC.

    Yes, I swapped it and it only took about 5 minutes using a penny and small punch.

    (10 minutes if you count repeating the process for the spring I forgot to move the first time. )

    Nor are they all experts on firearms. I wish more would realize this. They are no different than a car salesman. There are some that are knowledgeable in their craft, but still far from an expert.

    I've actually had more steer me wrong, than steer me right. For the most part, it's usually personal opinion.
