    So here is my question....I am active duty with a Texas CHL (concealed carry, not a permit like Georgia's). So, with that am I also open to the exclusions for the military members? I am sorry it takes so long to get a permit in GA...just ridiculous. TX sin't much better...about 60-90 days depending, but we don't have open carry...in Texas...go figure.

    In short, you can carry open or concealed in GA without having to worry about the prohibited places that restrict those of us with a GFL. At least that's the theory; I am not aware of anyone putting this statute to the test.

    I believe that the public transporation prohibitions still applies, though.

    Your Texas license is only valid in GA if you do not reside here. If you are stationed in GA, you can apply for a GFL if you wish, but the exemption in 16-11-130 should make that unnecessary (unless you want it for use while outside of GA).

    16-11-124 has that "offical duty" language in it. 16-11-130 does not.
