    I know that some of my favorite restaurants are off limits to carry. I know that it's a misdemeanor to carry there. My question is this: IF I were ti get caught carrying at Stoney River, would just pay a fine? go to jail? lose my permit? all of the above?

    Maybe. Maybe. Yes.

    Carrying a deadly weapon to a public gathering is a misdemeanor which in the great police state of Georgia means that you can be fined up to $1000 and imprisoned up to a year. And from what I understand you'll have to wait atleast 3 years after your "punishment" before you're even eligable to apply for a GFL again.

    My advice is to stay away from "public gatherings" altogether. If that is not possible, then conceal, conceal, conceal the best you can. If you're discovered then I would invoke subsection (d) of the public gathering law.

    Do what you have to do.

    Part of that plan centers around having a good rig, so one can feel confident that they are not showing their weapon off.

    Of course, Rammstein is not likely to post your bail. :wink:

    P.S. Rammstein, isn't it a little irritating listening to devil music in German? :lol:

    Entschuldigen mich? Ich verstehen Sie nicht.

    My breadth of musical taste is quite vast actually. Some weeks I only listen to classical along with just music just made by cellos (which is actually very good). Last week I was listening to rap. This week I am listening to a lot of mellow music, think Marley and 311.

    With 25Gbs of music I could listen for 16 days straight and not hear the same song twice.

    +1 on the music. Friday when I left the office, I forgot to turn off my Ipod. When I got to the office this morning, the same playlist was still running. :D

    As far as the original question is concerned, I use a good rig. I carry either a G19 or G17 in a Comptac Shirt Tucker or Galco Stow and GO depending on what my plans are. I'm also considering changing my carry piece to a G26 or something along the lines of a Bersa Thunder. I really want a Walther PPK, but don't think it's in the budget.

    It's a misdemeanor as others said. If your piece gets seen, there is probably a small chance the cops will get called.. larger if you are somewhere in a major city I guess.. Unless you are acting a fool, there is also a decent chance that they will take you outside, run your info, check your permit and let you go. Will the cops arrest someone who carried a gun into a prohibited place? Maybe. Probably much worse if you get caught in the courthouse or school than an Applebees though.

    The best way is to work to change the law as Malum said. That way, you don't have to fear anything.

    If you must carry... conceal well or get something small. Those Kel-Tec .380's are so small it's scary. I wear long T-shirts or will wrap my hoodie or long sleeve shirt around my waist. I look kinda stupid but nobody is going to see anything. I look pretty stupid anyways haha.

    It's pretty easy to avoid places serving alcohol alltogether. I rarely go in a place that serves once I adjusted my habits. If you get caught, you run the risk of getting in trouble... factor that into your decisions. Maybe it's an excuse to find more restaurants?

    Bleh to the PPK. Heavy. .380. Slices up my hand. You would probably be better off with a Kahr or Kel-Tec 9mm if you go that route. Even a .38spl J-Frame.
