Anyone know the laws for car carry in SC?  I know there's no reciprocity but I'm wondering if I can keep it loaded in my glove box?

Click on SC.  I hear that site is pretty good, but I have not used it.

From the above linked site:

RV/Car Carry Without A Permit/License
Anyone who can legally own a firearm can carry it loaded if contained in a closed Glove Box, Console or Trunk. Their law is very specific on the only locations where it can be carried.
SECTION 16-23-10. Definitions.
When used in this article:
(1) “Handgun” means any firearm designed to expel a projectile and designed to be fired from the hand, but shall not include any firearm generally recognized or classified as an antique, curiosity, or collector’s item, or any that does not fire fixed cartridges.
(10) “Luggage compartment” means the trunk of a motor vehicle which has a trunk; however, with respect to a motor vehicle which does not have a trunk, the term “luggage compartment” refers to the area of the motor vehicle in which the manufacturer designed that luggage be carried or to the area of the motor vehicle in which luggage is customarily carried. In a station wagon, van, hatchback vehicle, or sport utility vehicle, the term “luggage compartment” refers to the area behind, but not under, the rearmost seat. In a truck, the term “ luggage compartment” refers to the area behind the rearmost seat, but not under the front seat.

SC does NOT honor GA's CCW. That state sucks with regards to reseprocity. Read the statue but I believe you have to have it locked up with ammo locked seperatly. SC badly needs to fix that....
