Only one permit, for the carry (open or concealed) of a pistol/handgun.

CCW= Conceal Carry Weapon - Georgia does not allow the concealing of anything other than firerarm(s) with a license (no concealed knife, baton, asp, sword etc).

Permit or license is just what a state calls it's own law. Georgia calls it a license. Georgia Firarms License to be exact.

This is a distinction that many miss. I moved up from FLA in 1998. FLA has a CCW.

So, it's counter-intuitive, but you could legally carry a a pistol concealed with a GFL, but violate the law by carrying a certain type of knife (any type of knife "designed for offense or defense" - I think this is close to the code language).

BTW - the city of ATL has an ordinance that limits knives to 3" blades or less.

Open or concealed, just make sure your gun is in a holster.
No holster required for open carry. :)

Anyway, for the original poster, there is one license (GFL). It is for pistols only (including tasers). You must have the GFL to carry a pistol openly or concealed. Knives and other weapons may not be concealed, but you can carry them openly without the GFL. Long guns may be carried openly without the GFL.

As long as you are not in one of the myriad of off-limits places you are good to open or conceal carry with the GFL.

With the exception of mzmtg's carry in hand idea. I am curious about how one would go about open carrying without a holster...Perhaps he could tie a piece of string around the trigger gaurd and hang it from his belt, or button on his shirt, like a yo yo.

I believe there are gun lanyards.
