Currently in Georgia visiting my Father and his wife. We just got back from the gun range in Athens. My Father wanted to purchase his first handgun for HD. He had never fired a gun other than basic in the Air Force and it was an M16. He said he has fired about 100 rounds in his life, I brought a case of handguns down for them to try and see if this was something they were interested in.

After shooting for about an hour, the two of them decided they wanted to buy some guns. My step mom picked out a Ruger 22/45 and my Dad picked out a S&W M&P 9mm. After filling out their respected 4473 forms, they paid and walked out with two brand new guns in boxes along with new hearing and vision protection and 100 round for their respected firearms.

I am now trying to figure out why I still live in NYS, and how long it will be before I live in Georgia. Checking the want adds and real estate listings.

The smell of freedom is so sweet. FUAC and Astorino in 2014 is my only hope.

Don't think you even need a permit to buy, just to carry, correct?
generally, no

Weapons Carry: You are not allowed to carry a weapon (as defined at the top of this page) without having a weapons carry license unless you fit one of the exceptions below (this is in general, there are some places off-limits to carry even with a Weapons Carry License):


  1. If you are not prohibited by law from possessing (see the definition under the "Possession" section at the top of this page) a firearm you may carry a weapon on your own property and in your own home, motor vehicle and place of business without needing a valid weapons carry license. (including the property that the business is located on IF the property is owned by the business owner). You do not have to have permission from the business owner in order to be exempt from carrying a concealed weapon without a license at your place of business (however that does NOT mean you cannot be fired for carrying without permission. If you cross any property in transit between your property, car or office then you would be in violation of the law.
  2. If you are not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm you may carry a long gun without needing a valid weapons carry license. However if it is loaded, you must carry the long gun in an open and fully exposed manner (this exemption is odd, a long gun is not defined as a weapon so I am not sure what law you would be breaking if you did carry a loaded long gun concealed).
  3. If you are not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm you may carry a handgun provided it is unloaded and enclosed inside a case (There is nothing that defines exactly what unloaded means, to be on the safe side you should assume it means no loaded magazine inserted into the gun).
  4. If you are not ineligible for a license to carry, you can carry in any private passenger motorized vehicle, provided that the owner (or other legal representative of the property) has not forbid possession of weapons or long guns on the property (the difference between this and the first one is that you can carry in someone else's car provided you could get a GWL and they do not forbid you possessing it in their car).
  5. If you have a valid hunting or fishing license or do not legally have to have one, you can carry a handgun or long gun while you are actively engaged in hunting, fishing or sport shooting with permission from the owner of the land you are on.
  6. If you have a license to carry from a state that honors the Georgia Weapons Carry License, as long as you are not a resident of Georgia and you follow Georgia laws while you are here (a map of states that honor the Georgia license is here).
Violation of this code section is a misdemeanor for the first offense and a felony if a second offense is committed within 5 years of the first. (16-11-125.1, 16-11-126 ) Note that a long gun is NOT defined as a "weapon" and that not all firearms are covered as a weapon or a long gun (a firearm with a barrel over 12 inches but under 18 inches is not a "long gun" or a "weapon" as it is defined in 16-11-125.1).

That is correct, you can carry loaded inside your car without a permit. To carry open or concealed in this state, you go to the county court and apply for a concealed weapons permit and they have 8 days to approve you, this includes knives longer than 5 inches.

Having a permit to just own a handgun is very uncommon because it isn't legal.

Except in the Communist State of New York...and Como, Schumer, Gliderbrand, Slaughter, keep getting voted in and they always vote the democratic Presidential candidate. Anyone want to guess what HAS to change, but won't. Yes blame the City, but check out this map. It will be interesting to see if the colors change in 2016. My guess probably not.

It is a permit to carry concealed...but the requirements are not to much. Basic NICS stuff, domestic violence, drug stuff, a class and i think thats about it.

Doesn't matter except for Reagan New York always goes to the Dem and then we complain about high taxes, gun rights, social programs an on an on. Schumer and Gliderband keep winning in landslides, Como wins and probably wqill this fall All I'm saying is we get what we vote for and that's why the state theme song is "I'm so blue"!

At the rate people are getting the FO of NY, I can't wait for the next census. Hopefully it lowers our impact on presidential elections.

Drug stuff? My NY, UT, FL and PA didn't ask. Other than have you been arrested for drugs or an addict or some ****.
More than that?
