WHAT IS THE SC CWP?


The CWP (Concealed Weapons Permit) program is a law that, upon successful completion of a basic training course, allows the holder to carry a concealed firearm in many public places in SC. The permit itself looks like a drivers license and fits in your wallet. And, should you ever decide that having an additional means of self-protection would make you feel more comfortable, you can legally conceal a firearm to help ensure the safety of yourself and your loved ones. We'll teach you how...!





HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY HAVE A CWP?


There are about 280,000 CWP holders in SC. Or about one of every 17 people!





HOW LONG IS THE CLASS and HOW MUCH IS IT?


Approximately 8hrs. You will actually be done in one day! The cost is 75 per person. Look below for discounts and what is included! You'll need to include a one-time application fee of $50 for SLED before you mail off your packet, but don't worry, we assemble the packet and explain everything.





WHAT WILL I LEARN?


The Class must be taught by a SLED Certified CWP Instructor. At LAKELANDS CWP we have two, and we work hard to make sure you learn at your pace to ensure the safety of yourself and your family. Our average Class size is 6-12 people only- this makes for a more comfortable, interactive environment. It works! You will learn about basic firearm function and maintenance, safety and storage practices, ammunition and loading/unloading, proper handling and firing as well as SC laws and restrictions. At LAKELANDS CWP we also leave plenty of time for your questions, and go over real-life examples of self-defense. And we welcome you back to future CWP Classes for a refresher, anytime, no charge!
