Or if you are active military with proper ID.Welcome to GPDO, tem01. In Georgia, to carry a loaded long gun in plain view, you don't need to have a weapons license. To carry a pistol openly or concealed you need to either have a GWCL or a license from a reciprocal state.
Way more than just a few years, if that was ever true. I have had a GWCL for over 25 years, and the law has always allowed concealed carry with it. And open carry too, for as long as I recall.IIRC, when I got my first "Pistol Toters License" you could only
open carry. That was a few years ago. ldtimer:
That is up for dispute, and Tom Bowers as AG gave an official opinion that the license was for carrying openly only and that concealed carry was a crime.
I think in '76 you still could only open carry and in very limited places.
