    I do a fair amount of travelling to a few states, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Florida, Ohio, South Carolina.

    For those that allow it, what would be the benefits of getting non-resident permits?? Does it give me more options while in those states?

    Does reciprocity with Georgia not cover that same type thing?

    Thanks for your advice. I'll keep looking into this.


    Thanks! :D

    Not sure about all of them, but South Carolina does not honor Georgia licenses - nor does it offer a nonresident license.

    Tennessee - Good to go on a Georgia license.

    Alabammy - Good to go on a Georgia license.

    Florida - Good to go on a Georgia license, but getting a nonresident there will allow you to carry in the majority of states in the U.S., something Georgia's license will not do.

    Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio - I do not know off the top of my head.

    I don't think SC is allowed even with a FL license.
    Florida only has about 6-7 more reciprocal states than Georgia... one of those I believe is Ohio.
    Ohio - does not recognize Georgia's license.
    Kentucky - Good to go on a Georgia license.
    Missouri - Good to go on a Georgia license.

    Hey Malum, don't strain you brain just go to the reciprocity page in the Firearms license section. http://www.georgiapacking.org/gflr.php

    Utah is a better deal for GA residents. You pick up more states and the renewal costs are much lower. The downside is finding a Utah instructor.

    Would not go that route. They have just tighten up there regulations again. They now require instructors to requalify every three years because of abuses in the system.

    There are no Utah instructors in the metro Atl area that I know of.

    Florida is a lot easier to get but next time I am going for Utah.
