    It's not illegal to drink with a firearm im your possession. It's not even illegal to drink and carry.

    There are real lawyers here. Learn a few things from them first. I'm still learning.

    Do not trust what you've been told even from a LEO. Always verify.

    You can freely view the GA code by going to http://www.legis.ga.gov/en-US/default.aspx and then clicking "Georgia Code" listed under "GA Government".

    This will lead you to the OCGA at LexisNexus where you can search through Georgia Laws and the Georgia Constitution to your hearts content.

    Most of the weapon laws are under Title 16, Chapter 11, Article 4 but a few are scattered about under other code sections.

    Being able to browse the Georgia Code is a immensely valuable resource. For example, get a ticket in your vehicle then browse Title 40.

    Many people will tell you what the law is. The onus is on you to verify it.

    Also, remember that you can go to GeorgiaCarry.org, click on the link at the bottom of the page for Georgia Weapons Laws, and at the top of that page of the reproduction of the key laws, you'll find the Lexis Nexis link to the OCGA.

    Unfortunately, if you print and get patted down by a LEO, you lose your license upon conviction. That's why I bought a .17 HMR revolver to carry when I go vote, as that is one of the legal options.
