I'm thinking no-go, even for 16-11-130 exempted. Its federal property, right?

I would think so, unless you're gonna watch it across the street along US 41 and SR 280. I saw the GaSDF had a secure area established complete with walk through metal detectors and hand wands screening everyone coming on the the airstrip tarmac to watch. So I think the establishment of a secure area alone would put a person on notice that weapons weren't allowed

my :2cents: anyway

Of all places it should, but doesn't. Think Ft. Hood. Military bases have rapidly becoming soft targets that terrorists will continue to exploit.

Edited for highlighted change.

I can sit on my deck and watch some of the flying. They are passing right over my house! NO traffic, no crowds and no walking!

I'm thinking of taking my wife's car and parking on the roof of the parking garage at Life Univ (she has a student parking pass) to watch.

Went today, parked on base, armed military security searching cars (we got there early, I heard they stopped this after volume increased).. bag searches and metal detectors at the entrances - which are already on base property, so they probably wouldn't just turn you away if they found a gun. After asking one of the MPs about LEOs carrying, they said on-duty in uniform only.

Hope that helps anyone thinking about going! :righton:

Well, I kinda figured it was federal property with Navy and Air Reserve being there. Although I guess the Navy side is gone now, I think.

However, that doesn't necessarily apply to every military installation in the state. National Guard armories, for instance.

Ya know seajay, I used to think you were an all-right guy. Now, not so sure....

At least ya can take some pix and post them for us poor folk who live on the other side of the world so we can see what we missed.

In addition to the Federal Base thing... Lockheed Martin does not allow firearms at ANY of its facilities unless you are uniformed, on-duty LEO. So even if one was "exempt", you would still be asked to leave if "someone" saw your firearm.

Dobbins Air force Base. Drive up to the gate and inform the guard you have a firearm and need an escort to the armory. They will secure your firearm there and you can get it when you leave. Better call to make sure though.

It is also worth mention that they lobbied to have language added to HB 89 putting them outside the scope of the amended parking lot rules.
