    Looking for anyone who has OC'd in Augusta Area

    Since moving to Georgia in 2005, I have been endorsed to carry. after our new Governor signed the new law....I have been hesitant to open carry since moving to Richmond County....let alone Columbia or other counties in the CSRA. I always pull over before crossing the state line to lock box my weapon, and anywhere else it's posted not allowing weapons.
    I would probably feel most comfortable in a restaurant at first, maybe a big box store.....any experiences to share to ease my anxiety ??

    OC w/permit is legal in Georgia, in a vehicle no permit needed. Your personal comfort level will improve the more you OC. Consider making the first few excursions with an experienced hand - the buddy system is a good prescription for newbie nerves.

    I've OC'd all over Augusta, no one bats an eye. I'm usually there a couple times a month at least. It's a huge non-event after you become accustomed to the fact that most people don't notice/care.
