    I have been in the Atlanta area for over ten years. I would stay away from inside the perimeter ( i.e. inside I 285 ) and if you are considering Gwinnett you need to know the traffic is bad and its definitely urban sprawl. Consider the Cumming area (Forsyth County) and Dawsonville ( Dawson County ). Both are growing, north of the city by about 60 to 80 miles, offer you a choice of city/rural and reasonable housing. Also a big plus is its easier to obtain your GFL ( GA Firearms License ) and you have a very nice nationally recognized outdoor range close by - Riverbend Gun Club.

    My favorite is 16-11-122 which makes it a felony with a penalty of 20 years in prison for carrying within a “reasonable distance” of a bus stop. Have fun with that one while walking through downtown ATL. Since no exception is made, this would apply to unmarked school bus stops as well. Fun.
    Yes they are.....I keep 'em seperated due to my being a doofus ITR and because they represent two seperate headaches for me. The public transportation (122) is another pain under my hat as well.

    I still love Georgia (and GCO!) and hope the OP has enough information to make the decision best for him and his.

    thanks to everyone who replied. it looks like I may be up for a job with Gwinnett Co PD so I'll need to get used to the carry restrictions. I guess once I move south...I'm the one that everyone will think is talking funny. Need to lose my "yankee" accent.

    Heck nobody really notices anymore with all of the Northern transplants down here. I should know because I married one. When I go to Ohio though I get funny looks when I speak sometimes.

    Well if he gets a job as a police officer he won't have to worry about all of the restrictions!

    I am currently living in forest park. Within a year I will be moving with my wife to Gwinnett. I own a business up there, and the commute is terrible.

    Before purchasing a home in Gwinnett, I suggest you do some drive throughs. The neighborhoods change drastically within a 5 mile radius.

    There are some gorgeuos areas, though, and some amazing prices on homes in some areas.

    Just a minor point, but one most people don't realize until retirement. If you are a public servant who plans on retiring from GA, and about 12 other states...be sure to check on you ability to collect your state pension AND social security...some states consider that 'double dipping'...
