    Georgia CWP ?

    I have a SC CWP and am going to work in GA for about 4-5 months. I have been trying to research the GA laws, but can't find anything about getting a non residence CWP or even if they offer it.

    Any help?

    By the way, GA does not have reciprocity with SC.

    Georgia doesn't issue non-resident permits. You have to get a Pennsylvania or other honored state's non-resident permit. I'm in Georgia and my only option to carry in South Carolina is to buy property.

    Your fastest option would be to get a PA non-resident permit from Centre County, PA. I have heard that it takes only 2 weeks. Utah and NH will also work (that's what I have), but they take longer, and Utah requires you to take a class by their certified instructors (there are certified Utah instructors in SC).

    I'm thinking I read somewhere that PA is requiring people to show up in person to apply for permits now. Can anyone verify this?
    You can also try New Hampshire. Theirs cost a bit more and is only 4 years, but they issue non-resident and GA honors them.

    I am is SC also

    The Florida permit will let you carry in Georgia. Its good in 35 states. Combined with the SC permit, most of the USA is covered.

    It usually takes 2 weeks to get.

    I got the NH non-res back when it was dirt cheap but since they went up I will be getting FL non-res when it's time to renew.

    369 is a great resource and online community for researching Georgia's gun laws.
