    I presume the "license" indicated to open carry is the same as the concealed carry license? Just making sure.

    Also, does GA not offer non-resident permits? I'm currently in GA attending medical school, and am also reserve Army so I kept my SC residency.

    One addition
    While my license is in SC (and I don't pay taxes on my Army income because I'm a SC resident), my wife is a GA and I do get an electric bill and stuff in my own name.

    There is only a Georgia Firearms Licence (GFL) - it covers you for both concealed and open carry. With limited exceptions, carrying either way without a GFL is "not a good thing". For the price and convenience, it's hard to beat.

    If you will check the thread "I am moving to Evans, GA." on this page you will a more thorough reply than mine.

    Hooahdoc, If you are a SC resident and have a sc permit just file for a new hampshire non-resident permit for $20 and you'll gain GA, AL, and MS with NH's reciprocity agreements.

    Got it, I'll do this. I assume from the responses that GA does not have a non-resident permit

    I'm not sure.

    Go to handgunlaw.us and click on "create license map", enter SC and NH and it will show you your reciprocity states. Note - CO, and FL will be included on the map, but remember they will not honor a non-resident permit.

    If you are active military - you can carry in GA without a permt or GFL. Infact you can carry in more places than someone with a GFL. But you hav to be on "active" duty for this to apply.

    You do not have to be active military for this to apply, you just have to be in the military service of the state or the United States. It is true that you can carry in more places than people just with a GFL. Just show your military ID.

    There is an attorney general's opinion where the question was asked can active duty carry without a GFL and the answer was yes. They only answered the question that was asked without much elaboration. This has been misconstrued by people that think you have to be active duty for this to apply. Read the law yourself. It is 16-11-130.

    Here's a link:

    Even better! There had always been much deliberation in GA whether it had to be Active - but I like the AG's opinion.
