    TN Premit holder going to Savannah GA....

    OK,

    Read Handgunlaw, and I know GA honors TN permit. It appears the laws are real similar to TN. Is there anything that I should be extra careful with?

    Also I have always flown Delta, tomorrow I'll be flying US Air, has anybody had any problems with them? Their web site says it about the same as Delta, except, you are to lock the suitcase it and you keep the key. Delta says you have to use a TSA approved lock. So I called US Air customer, which was not US by the way, They told me no. Once TSA has looked at it and accepted it, you keep the only key.

    Any comments welcome......

    First thing is to check out Welcome to GeorgiaPacking.org as there seems to be quite a few there that live in Savannah or the Savannah area.

    I'd mainly watch out for public gatherings such as street concerts that spring up with very little notice. Of course stay away from publicly owned buildings and school owned buildings. Sporting events and churches/church property (that's a lot of areas in Savannah) are no-no's also.
    Every city/county seems to have their own ordinances for knives so just remember that in Ga you carry permit only applies to your firearms. You can be arrested for carrying a very insignificant pocket knife depending on where you are.

    The good: you will be able to legally carry in restaurants where alcohol is served as long as you don't drink and you can carry in state park areas. All of the islands should be okay for carry, IIRC.

    Carry anywhere in the car is legal. It's up to you whether you notify LEO or not. If you are discovered carrying and are asked to leave private property by an employee of the property/business, do it or it's criminal trespassing.

    Voice recorders are inexpensive and always nice to have around. Ga is a single party consent state so it is perfectly legal for you to record any conversations you are involved in.

    This is just stuff off the top of my head, so be sure to check out GeorgiaPacking. Enjoy your trip.

    The TN permit only covers handguns as well so that is the same.

    Have a safe trip TankDriver! Have fun too.

    Usually to be considered a Public Gathering, an admission has to be charged - see opinion of AG - even though people are gathered at McDonalds - not considered to be a Public Gathering. Resturants that serve alcohol are ok. Churches are off limits - this is one of those out of sync Public Gatherings. Bars are not ok. Everything else pretty much the same. No need to inform. If keeping it concealed - should be no issue - although open carry is ok - but rogue LEOs may cause trouble - just as in TN.

    Ga gun laws

    Georgia code section 16-11-126 (spec. (f)) Don't bother bringing an ankle holster unless your a tanker driver and a cop. If that code section does not help you try this link.

    georgia.gov - Georgia's Firearm Permit Reciprocity

    Also try Kevin Barry's Irish Pub on River Street. Have to leave the firearm locked up, but well worth it.

    what? there is no paid admission argument, any thing where people gather for a specific event can be construed as a public gathering

    Wynne v. State 123 Ga. 566 1905 A public Fourth of July barbecue "at which negroes and some white people gathered, to the number of some 400 or 500," is a public gathering.


    Jordan v. State 166 Ga. App. 417 1983 Possessing a loaded weapon on Loganville Auto Auction grounds when many people are present in the parking lot constitutes the offense of carrying a deadly weapon to a public gathering.

    just recently flew us air with a gun from pa to dfw and back. as long as ya meet the tsa requirements your good to go. they didn't even mind me haveing the ammo in the same luggage as the case the weapon was locked in.(though they did keep asking if i was on orders trying to save me the $15 for luggage fees)

    X2 on the Irish Pub

    Make sure your packing after dark on River street. Thats where a guy tried to mug me, but since he had an empty pistol, he ended up on the short end of the stick (I posted the story somewhere on here.) Edit: http://www.defensivecarry.com/vbulle...17-post59.html

    Other than that, Savannah is a fun place. I was stationed there for 3 years.
    Confuse a liberal, use logic and facts.

    Thanks eveyone.

    This has been the day it FROZE over. My flight was to leave Memphis at 6:05. It left at 9:00 am because of delay at Charlotte . Then they canceled my flight to Savannah. Had to rebook. I'll be setting here till 10:10 tonight, but my luggage went on ahead of me, I hope. WITH my pistol, and some items I need for my class in the suitcase.......

    Not a good day......
