Virginia honors CCPs issued in South Carolina. Why does South Carolina not honor permits from Virginia?
I don't know the technical reason, but in Oregon we don't recognize any other state permits, which is nuts. Thats like saying we are the only ones competent enough to train and choose responsible citizens for carry licenses.

Many states will not recognize another states permits unless that state adopts the same licensing requirements. Thats why a national program might be a good thing, in the sense we would not be in violation of the law if we carried in all states. The downside is, of course, a national license tracking program on carry licensees. Which they have access to through NICS anyway.

There is a Bill in process to fix the reciprocity issues i South Carolina.

NRA continues to work with legislators on several critical bills. The first bill, H 3212, is headed for Conference Committee, but is awaiting the assignment of conferees. This legislation was originally introduced and passed by the House as a bill that would establish a straight recognition standard for right-to-carry (RTC) permits in South Carolina. In other words, as long as a visitor to South Carolina had a valid RTC permit issued by another state, South Carolina would recognize it as valid in the Palmetto State. NRA fully supports this proposal, however, some in the Senate have shown opposition to such a standard, and to ensure passage of this bill, NRA worked with State Senators Jim Ritchie (R-13) and Jake Knotts (R-23) to come up with good language that would pass in the Senate. This new language would improve the current conditional reciprocity standard currently in effect in South Carolina. If the Senate language is adopted, it will expand the number of states that recognize a South Carolina RTC permit, as well as the number of states South Carolina will recognize. NRA will continue to work with members of the Senate and House to ensure the best possible language is passed. The least we will accept is the language passed by the Senate, which, as previously stated, would be an improvement over the current law.
