    After being back and forth between Georgia and my home state of Alabama for the past several months, I am now a resident of Georgia and I just got my Georgia firearms license last week.

    My name is Tim and my user name is TC61. I live in Fayetteville with my wife and step-daughter.

    I am 45 and have held a handgun permit since I turned 21. I have felt somewhat naked the past two months waiting on my GA permit.

    Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and hope to get to know some gun folks here and possibly find someone in this area to shoot with.

    And, if anyone can give me some tips or suggestions on concealed carry in GA that will help me, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks for the warm welcome folks! And, thanks for the invite, but I will have to decline because I already have plans to be in Alabama for the week-end.

    I should be okay to carry in AL with my GA permit if I understand correctly. Is this right?

    Thanks again!

    As long as you follows Alabama's carry laws.

    That map is looking better and better. Since open carry is legal in NM, I can drive west all the way across the country until I reach California. By deterring up through Utah and Idaho, I can even reach the Pacific Ocean through Oregon, where open carry is legal and there is a Supreme Court case protecting the right to carry openly in a belt holster while driving (but beware of preemption issues).

    Once I get my Utah non-resident license (as soon as they realize the error of their ways on the SSN issue, cave in, and issue it to me), that map will have a lot less red on it for me.

    Easier than following Georgia's.
