    Over the last several years GA has come a long way in educating LEO's about the scope of the GWCL - Georgia Weapons Carry License. And carry covers both open and closed.

    Yep, it's good to live in a state in which you are not assumed to be a criminal up to no good if you are OC or CC-ing.

    Yeah, not sure how that works as far as reciprocity goes. I know you can carry here, and that you have to obey GA law when you do, but I have no idea how it works if you have a concealed carry permit from FL (or anywhere else for that matter).

    Come on up to VA. OC does not require a permit here.

    Looks to me like my permit is fine in Georgia, but open carry is out for me. That's fine, I actually prefer concealed, but there are times when I'm working the property that I would like to not have to worry about exposure.

    Ga. used to be the same but was changed a few years ago.

    If you own the property you are on, you don't need a permit.

    Are you sure about that? States that have CCW reciprocity usually give out of state permits the same privileges as in-state permits.

    Georgia statute specifically states that OC is for Georgia permit holders only.

    Unless of course I'm on my own property, then I can carry at will. So when I'm here:

    I can open carry all I want.

    If I had a regular job I would seriously consider relocating from the state of Illinois.
