This isn't what you think. The worm has surely turned in Georgia (and in Georgia laws). Twenty to thirty years ago (when I first started carrying hand guns) the big debate was whether you could carry a firearm concealed with a GFL or only could carry openly. (This also relates to the State Patrol in the other thread. Sixteen year veteran so he is from this old school.) The debate was settled with the old "if the law doesn't prohibit it then it's legal". But we still walked around waiting to take the ride if caught. The lawmen all thought you needed to carry it open on your hip. There were no inside the waistband holsters (though I did carry in a shoulder holster under my coat). Now days the debate has turned around to can you carry open (without causing a panic) if you have a GWL. I wonder how I missed the middle ground when it was swinging the other way? The more things change the more they stay the same.
