(No permit required to buy in SC, or most other southern states.)
If he'd been out in public, he would have needed a concealed carry permit. Since he was on private property, if the homeowner has no issue with him being armed, they probably cannot charge him with any sort of possession issue.
Otherwise it sounds like pretty straightforward self-defense, legally speaking... I doubt he will be charged with anything.

Great story. I'm eager to get my CHL in July for reasons just like this.

LICENSE OR PERMIT TO PURCHASE
Is a license/permit required to buy handguns? No
Georgia - No state requirement that handgun buyers obtain a handgun license or undergo any type of safety training prior to buying a handgun.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Thank God. This is just another prime example of why we must resist those who seek to infringe upon the Second Amendent, who wish to leave law-abiding citizens entirely at the mercy of murderers and thugs.
Lot of training.
