Concealed Weapons Permit (CWP)

South Carolina CWP classes are held the first weekend of every month.

Still working on this page; Sept. 2017, sb

updates coming soon on new laws and issues; July 2017.
South Carolina Law requires a minimum of 8 hours of  training (2014/15, has brought new state laws and we may teach as required); from a Sled Certified Instructor, to be eligible for a Concealed Weapon Permit (CWP). Over the years we have found one day is not enough time. We cover a lot of information.
For most, this is the only formal training they ever attend. (You don't know what you don't know) Our classes are taught in two 6/7 hour sessions. The required shooting chapter of the class is usually at the end of the second day. Those that are common with shooting from a concealed carry mode can shoot the SLED
CWP Qualifier at any pre-arranged time. Experience has found though, over the years; that at the end of two days of dynamic classroom work we become in
one word, again; kind of exhausted. Not a problem, some will shoot on Sunday and some will shoot on another day, with no extra fees. This is for safety issues and the instuctor shooter connection. The full CWP class starts promply at 10:05 AM on Saturday and Sunday then go untill 3 or 4:00 depending on the students. We have a 2-Hour DVD and 1-Hour reading requirement for "Homework" at registration. We will have short breaks throughout and can send out for lunch. Bring what you need for an all day event.

This class will cover:
  • Statutory and case law in SC relating to handguns and use of deadly force
  • Handgun use and safety
  • Proper storage practices for handguns that reduce possibility of accidental injury to children.
  • A SLED provided written examination and shooting proficiency test.
  • Study Handouts and all the help you need to file the proper forms with SLED.
