    Go to http://handgunlaw.us for Georgia rules and to determine if GA accepts VA permit. I know they accept Alabama and I have carried in GA. One of the oddities of GA law is that you are required to carry in a holster. I do, but requiring it is a little unusual.

    You are right about the holster req, I just read the requirement on
    georgiapacking.org and the definition of a holster is fairly loose, meaning any device or hip grip commonly used is a legal holster.
    Hand gun law says no to Va.

    I think that holster rule is a very good law, and it should be defined as a device that covers the trigger!

    If it is not in the US Constitution then the Federal Government should not be doing it.

    Quick like a bunny - get a NH non-resident permit. $20, a 1-page app, simple w/ no hassle. Accepted by Ga.

    OK - how does this fit in w/ your sig line? Not trying to be a wise-ass, but I don't remember this requirement being listed in ref document...

    His sig line says the FEDERAL government. That has nothing to do with what a state does.

    Looking at Georgia's laws, very confusing. I will be flying there next month, my Idaho permit is good there, but weird laws and too damn many to keep track of. Wondering if worth the hassle.

    Yes, I fully realize that it makes ref to COTUS, not the state. I made the comment based on the "incremental" infringement trend- by gov in general. Any gov stipulation re: how a holster should be made? Why? While I agree with the basic intent here, I do not agree w/ gov getting into the act - it's just one more step in the process...
