    well you can just stick you pistol in your pants or pocket etc as long as you can tell its a pistol

    Caselaw on GeorgiaPacking.org, Stockdale v. State, 32 Ga. 225 (1861)

    A pistol carried by a man with no effort to conceal it; with the barrel inserted beneath the pantaloons in front, whilst the man's coat was unbuttoned, and the man had on no vest at the time; that the cock, cylinder, and caps of the pistol could be plainly and distinctly seen, and any person could know that it was a pistol, without any difficulty, is not concealed.

    Upholds Nunn v. State's constitutional right to bear arms openly, as that "decision has been constantly adhered to from that time to the present, and must continue to stand as the law of this Court on that subject."

    The court notes that it is "impossible for one to have and bear about his person a pistol or weapon of any kind, without having some part of the weapon concealed from view."

    This is the decision that originated the idea of putting others on notice that they are armed, and dangerous persons, to be avoided upon sight.

    Note that bear = carry, in the Supreme Court's estimation.

    its more carry tucked in the belt or inside the pants with the handle visible.... or in the hand because the state may not ban the carry of a pistol in the hand
