Trailblzrkym: Well, if you were one of my 4 adult daughters, I'd tell you to take BOTH the .45 AND the shotgun--although if you could borrow somebody else's shotgun with a conventional stock it would be easier to jury-rig up a safari sling that would make the shotgun much easier to handle Safari Rifle Sling, Gun Slings, Hunting Accessories, Hunting : Cabela's with a little fore-thought you could rig up something--or, forget the pistol and take TWO shotguns Never such a thing as 'Too much gun", esp for women who LOOK like easy prey to two-legged predators.........

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

Take your recently expired New Hampshire in with you when you go for your Georgia. Maybe they can hurry things up for you a little bit if they know you have a hike planned.

they actually are quoting 3-5 business days but I just had two friends apply for theirs and they both waited about 20-23 days. I can't wait that long BUT I think I will talk to the Probate Judge. If he/she can expedite it under special circumstances that'd be awesome. Plus my NICS check will come back right away, fast and easy because I'm the only person in the freaking world with my actual name. lol So maybe I'll get lucky. Thanks for the info, you're the best!

I imagine two women will always look like easy prey to most human predators but what a surprise it would be to have your behind handed to you by a couple of lowly female hikers. bwahahahahahaa (evil laughter continues for an awkwardly long time....) cough. cough.... not that I'm looking for trouble or anything. :)

If all else fails, check and see if any small game seasons may be open ( squirrel, rabbit, etc. ) If so, get your hunting license and carry your shotgun. You don't HAVE to shoot any 4 legged critters, but you'd be legal. You are getting close to turkey season, check Ga. rules and pay attention to required shot size if you go that route. They are specific as to shot and gun capacity. No big problem, just know before you go. P.S. you will probably have to get a turkey stamp also.
