    Congrats on your permit!

    Congrats.

    One word of warning, try to either find a good comprehensive book on GA carry laws or find someone that specializes in them.

    When I lived in GA and had mine, the laws (in my mind) were hard to comprehend as to where you could and couldn't carry.

    One thing that comes to mind is (if it's still on the books) that you couldn't carry in a legal place if a school function was taking place.

    Also, IIRC, there was also something about gatherings and what made a gathering and what didn't.

    Too many "gray areas" when it comes to GA CCW. It is your responsibility to know the law concerning CCW (and not the LEO's, etc..).

    Wayne, you are absolutely right. I have been on Georgiapacking.org's forum and all that gets talked about is how vague GA's CCW laws are. We have a couple case laws that help our cause and, as always, a few that hurt our cause. As far as I know, there isn't any good breakdown of GA's laws, like there is in FL, b/c they are so vague and up for interpertation.

    There are alot of holes and gray areas in the laws here and it is a shame, especially compared to most other states.

    But the best you can do is read as much as you can and make decisions for yourself.

    Thanks again all for the support and the kind words.

    Made my first carried trip to Home Depot and I felt fine. Kinda easier though, wearing a sweater and a coat, but I felt comfortable nonetheless. Didn't make it to Wal-Mart though. Will have to grab those nachos another time.

    Thanks again,
    It's not polite to call people name's, you idiot!

    Heck atleast you got a letter. SC just send it in an envelope w/ a piece of paper used for your address.

    That's it. No letter, no "hey you are now responsible", nothing.

    Here in Oklahoma you get a letter telling you that your permit is ready. You then get to head to the county sheriff's office to show ID and pick it up. Of course, I was looking every day for the darned thing, so when I saw something from the OSBI I knew what it was and went directly to the courthouse to pick it up.
