    If you have your GFL, can you open carry on yourself while driving? Meaning can I have my pistol in a holster on my hip while driving or do I have to take it off and either place it in plan site or in a glove box?

    Yes. Anywhere on your person. Concealed or open. Concealed must be in a holster. IANAL.

    With or without a GFL, in Georgia, you can carry concealed or openly anywhere inside your vehicle.

    A holster is not required inside a vehicle, but I'd recommend one for keeping the firearm steady and in one location if possible.
