    First of all I beleive you can't carry a pistol into a post office; I'm not sure though. A guy I know carried his pistol in the post office concealed; I saw him printing and I told him after we left that I thought post offices were off limits. He swore it wasn't.

    And the signs on the wall saying its against Federal Law didn't settle the argument?

    In GA post offices are off-limits because of the public gathering law anyway. They are gov't buildings.

    There is debate over whether or not the federal law makes them off limits since it allows carry "for other lawful purposes."

    BUT, in GA all publicly owned buildings are off limits, so it's not up for debate.
