    Visiting AL/GA State Line

    I'm going to be spending a few days in Georgia, but the city is on the state line with Alabama (I'm brushing up on the laws for both states) and I was wondering if there were any "gotcha" laws I need to be particularly aware of. I have a TN HCP. Thanks in advance.

    Ammo Questions

    imported post I know that .357 revolvers can fire .38 ammo, and I was curious if other firearms had some similar crossovers, especially auto-loaders. Could a 10MM auto chamber, fire, and rechamber a .40 reliably? Could a .22LR auto use .22 short? Could a .357 Sig auto use .38 ammo?
