My son flew in to Atlanta airport last night, home on leave from Fort Sam Houston. Thanks to a visit to GPDO Forum earlier this week, I knew I could carry inside finally. And so, I did. Just a small pistol under my shirt and jacket.

We walked past 3 Atlanta police officers, one of them escorting someone in handcuffs. Couldn't help thinking, "Leonard?" :lol:

No problems, no issues. Not even news, except that Atlanta decided to make it so. The expansion of rights continues. Thanks, GCO.

I'll do it. If I end up face down in cuffs, then my wallet will be getting bigger in the future and people will be educated on the new law :D

I rode the MARTA train from Chamblee station to the airport, ate in the airport at paschal's, and returned to Chamblee station with a slung ak-47 type pistol carried openly. I was not questioned, nor asked for my carry permit /license. I was in the airport approximately an hour plus the time waiting for the train and transpost to and from. I spoke with several people and n one seemed threatened or bothered. One person followed me out of the bathroom, I didn't want to talk with him because he looked as if he wanted to argue. If I had been stopped my biggest dilema would have been which ID to show, my AZ or FL permit / license. :lol:

I was in Atlanta to take the Utah carry permit course taught by a member who was banned on this forum. The postal receipt is postage of the envelope I mailed to Utah with my application for yet another permit because Tennessee suspended mine and won't give it back.

I have everything which transpired on audio.


I didn't carry on post office property.

If that's true, wow, just wow. Talk about muzzling the attack dogs.

Didn't MP or someone point out that SB308 only allows GA residents with a GA License to carry at the airport?

I don't read the statute that way. If MP's interpretation is correct non-resident's can't carry to a large number of places including parks.

GA gives full reciprocity to permits holders from AZ and FL.

IANAL

maybe that orange paint all over your AK / Draco pistol really helped. They assumed it was a fake / toy / airsoft?
Still, I'm really surprised that the cops at the airport (in an "abundance of caution") didn't stop you for questioning, at least.

It can't be an toy/airsoft, it doesn't have an orange tip. :screwy:

It is a University of Tennessee Draco.

I knew someone would ask that which is why you'll see my post was edited (about 7 minutes before you posted). :)

Last time I rode Marta (Oct 2010), they stopped for extra time at Lindberg station while local and DHS police searched inside and outside the cars. Dressed for war, carbines, thigh holsters, desert boots, cameras on their helmets...and lots of manpower.

A drill of some kind (I hope). Glad you missed that particular incident. They did not look like folks who cared much about state issued carry permits.

You know I always imagined the famous Orange AK to look..., well more professional. I was thinking it was Powder coated, not haphazardly rattle-canned.
