A South Carolina Firearm Bill of Sale is a sales slip that is used to accompany the purchase and sale of a firearm of any kind in the state of South Carolina. The form records the personal details of all parties involved in the transaction and provides identifying information about the weapon being sold.
The state of South Carolina does not require a notary public's certification for firearm sales but it is generally a good idea to have a notary or witness to a sale in order to confirm a transaction has taken place. This can save any potential trouble which might occur should the seller or buyer contest the transaction at a later date.
A South Carolina Firearm Bill of Sale must be prepared in duplicate with both the seller and buyer keeping a copy of the form in their records. The form must include the following information:
State gun laws do not require buyers to register their newly-purchased firearm nor is a permit necessary to purchase or possess guns, pistols or rifles. Individuals are required to apply for a license only if they wish to conceal carry. A Concealed Handgun License (CHL) may be applied for at the office of the Chief of the State Law Enforcement Division. The CHL application costs $50. Applicants will need to show proof of purchase (a signed and notarized Bill of Sale), an ID, proof of state residency, a photograph of the applicant's face, and proof of proper weapon-handling training.
