Drove from South Carolina to Florida for Thansgiving dinner and to help celebrate my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary, drivning through Georgia is a pain! Since I don't have reciprocity in GA, I had to disarm, unload and lock up my firearms, what a hassel! I had one already lock in a case in my truck box, seperate from ammunition, had to stop before crossing into GA and dowith the other. Once in Florida I rearmed and contunued on to the villages where my in-laws live. Same routine on the way home yesterday, never again!

I applied to PA about 18 months ago. PA was giving a lot of grief to reciprocol permits so for $20 and 10 day wait I have a PA non resident.

I wish SC offered the same non-resident consideration. But at least I can move the gun from my belt to my console or glove box as I drive through and remain legal.

"This code section does not forbid the carrying of a loaded handgun in any private motor vehicle by a person who is not licensed, but also who is not prohibited from possessing a firearm, in an open manner and totally exposed to view. For those who are not listed as ineligible for a license (found below in the "Firearm License Carrying" section) may also place the gun anywhere inside the vehicle." quoted from www.Georgiapacking.org/law.php Found under section entitled "Long Version" , Heading entitled "concealed weapons , 2nd paragraph.

Am I missing anything ?

The only thing you had to do was put your gun on the seat. Georgia law states that your gun has to be visible on the seat.

Pa is so easy to get so why not just go on and get it and you're covered. Takes around 10 days.

Pa. supposedly accepts my Kentucky CC license, but given my knowledge of Pa State Troopers and their frequent delusions of Godhood, I decided to get the Pa license. Twenty some dollars and 2 weeks later I was done.

Florida has a reciprocy with Ga. (as well as SC, NC, AL, etc.) which means my FL CWP is good in Ga. also, or else there would be no reciprocal agreement. I did see where Nv is no longer on FLs reciprocal list.

WHAT ???!!! Georgia allows unlicensed open carry in a vehicle, visible or in glove box.. See:OpenCarry.org - State Information For Georgia If I'm wrong, please correct me ASAP, since I'm going there within two weeks. Thanks.


he is ineligible to receive a GA license(doesnt meet the residency requirement) with that said he could open carry but with current case law the courts have held that it is impossible

Bingo. That will be my problem in two weeks visiting the Blairsville area. Another state where I have to lock up, unloaded in the trunk. CRAP.:buttkick:

Here I researched the state law and then got got tripped up by the court case law.......thanks guys for the good info.

Which is what was determined in the other thread I referenced, which is what prompted the call to the GA AG. I think is bull myself, open carry can be achieved in a vehicle, seems to work fine in NC and other places, but regardless, as the title states, I will be applying for a PA permit ASAP.

Got my PA Permit in 13 days, that included the 2 day Thanksgiving holiday.

Got to love Sheriff Nau in Centre County. Now I'm legal Georgia.
