    Driving the CCW I-75 gauntlet south to Ga.

    Christmas is coming and I have a Ohio CCW permit that is on computers, data available for all law-enforcement officers who might stop me and check my license. I prepare to drive the CCW I-75 gauntlet between Ohio and Georgia, hoping that I do not get stopped by or pestered by cops, especially by those few folks who are leery of armed civilians, possibly cutting into their territory and looking for fame and glory.

    Made that same trip last year. You should be okay. If all you have is an Ohio permit, remember to remove your CCW from your body, and put it in the glove compartment when you get to Georgia.

    You'll be the only guy on I-75 who isn't going 85 mph.

    Drive safely and obey the speed limits. If you don't give them a reason to stop you they won't.

    You might consider applying for a PA non-res permit, which would make you good to go in Georgia. Apply to Centre County, PA and you should have the permit before Christmas. They have been taking a week to 10 days or so. here is the link:

    Have a safe trip.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the Ga. officers. They've been good to me when I've been stopped. In fact, in late '05 I was stopped on I-75 by a county officer. He said it looked like I was swerving. All went well and after a short conversation about registering the firearms I had brought with me from Jersey and my occupation (I did a lot of traveling) he informed me that it was legal to have an exposed, loaded, C&L hangun with me in the car while on the road. I was truly surprised to find an officer letting that cat out of the bag. Shortly after that I was stopped in a small town called Willacoochee. I had my USP exposed, loaded and C&L on the passenger seat. I showed the officer (without touching it of course) and he didn't raise an eyebrow. In my experience with the officers here, it doesn't make them flinch one way or the other. I even got a ride from an on-duty officer and after declaring that I was armed he told me thanks for telling him but it wasn't a problem.
    Have a safe trip.

    I wouldn't be concerned about anywhere but the city of Atlanta. I make the trip down 75 at least a few times a year. Its no big deal... and I do drive fast.

    I drive it quite a bit. Obey the laws and you stand a very low chance of being stopped. Remember, there is no GA reciprocity for OH permits.

    I'll be making the same trip come the first of the year. But with my MI permit I'm good in all the states :)
