    Gunrunners Shows will be returning to the Atlanta Farmers' Market on February 5 and 6.

    Please come help GCO increase our membership by volunteering at the recruitment table! (and it's lots of fun, too).

    These shows are usually well attended, so we would like to have plenty of folks to man the table - at least 3 people per slot would be great!
    The Farmers' Market is easy to get to - Exit 237 off of I-75, in Forest Park (map).

    Additionally, Gunrunners is offering a $1 discount coupon good at this show - here.

    Please post, PM, or email to let us know what hours and days you are available -
    Goldwing ([email protected]) or Teeter ([email protected]).

    Thank You for helping make GCO the great organization that it is!

    Awwwe c-mon man

    Admittedly the dealers were thin... but I did pick up a NIB Ruger 22/45 Mark 3 for 275 out the door.

    This was at the Jan 1st show, not sure if thats the one you were talking about. Also on that weekend there was another show in Norcross or Marietta I think.....I attributed the lack of dealers to that.

    Just my .02

    That's true. Our goal is to grow GeorgiaCarry.org - there are Georgia battles still to fight (think DeKalb County) and more looming on the horizon (think Bloomberg and Obama). The Farmers' Market shows are sometimes good and sometimes not, but we usually gain a few new dedicated GCO members at each event. And that's what it's about.

    I can be there after 1pm on Saturday and help out with the afternoon shift on Sunday.
    I'm coming from Lawrenceville if anyone wants to ride with me.

    For volunteers working the show, our table is on the right wall after you enter the show and we're the third table past the snack bar.
    Hope to see you there.

    Brian,did our friend from the Keystone state ever see the light?I think O.C.G.A. § 16-11-126 Paragraph e is what he refuses to understand((e) Any person licensed to carry a handgun or weapon in any other state whose laws recognize and give effect to a license issued pursuant to this part shall be authorized to carry a weapon in this state, but only while the licensee is not a resident of this state; provided, however, that such licensee shall carry the weapon in compliance with the laws of this state.
