OC and CC question...

Ok.. So I will be travelling to GA again.. and this time I will be in and out late at night...

So without sounding like a Troll..Let the good times rolllll..... :)
here are my questions and circumstances...

1. I have a current NC CC permit. I had a GA Permit about 15 years ago as an AD Marine....
2. I carry a 1911 with a nice black leather Galico with retention and normally 1 or sometimes 2 extra magazines.
3. There will be several dinners I will be attending-- I dont drink
4. I'm average statured.. (5'6 165) Meaning it is not always easy to conceal a big gun on my frame....

so the questions:

If I CC but take off my concealing jacket should I be worried about responses?
In Decauter, Conyers, Covington, and Duluth......
I mean my permit appears to be reciprocal and the only thing would be shock factor.
Do you see problems?

Have any of you seen problems with OC in these areas?

If I am printing, is that a problem? I mean if OC is legal, should I be concerned?
yea I know if I am CC and print, I might as well OC.. BUT I have found few can ID a CC from printing unless they have carried...

Have any of you transitioned from CC to OC in a restaurant or anywhere else? anything happen?

I look forward to hearing from yall...


Later,
J

No. No. No. No. No. Yes. No.

Short simple and to the point....
Are you SURE you are a Navy LCDR ?? When I was a young Marine on AD.. The only LCDR's I interfaced with could have put the Pope to sleep with long monotone speeches.....

thanks!

With all due respect to what has been said. Verify everyting by reading the laws on the state website itself then feel free to discuss what you learned. Are you willing to trust your future to someone you don't know on the internet? I do respect Navys knowledge but the principle is sound.

Chapter 11

Article 4

Part 3

O.C.G.A. § 16-11-126 (2011)

§ 16-11-126. Having or carrying handguns, long guns, or other weapons; license requirement; exceptions for homes, motor vehicles, and other locations and conditions; penalties for violations


(a) Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun may have or carry on his or her person a weapon or long gun on his or her property or inside his or her home, motor vehicle, or place of business without a valid weapons carry license.

(b) Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun may have or carry on his or her person a long gun without a valid weapons carry license, provided that if the long gun is loaded, it shall only be carried in an open and fully exposed manner.

(c) Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun may have or carry any handgun provided that it is enclosed in a case and unloaded.

(d) Any person who is not prohibited by law from possessing a handgun or long gun who is eligible for a weapons carry license may transport a handgun or long gun in any private passenger motor vehicle; provided, however, that private property owners or persons in legal control of property through a lease, rental agreement, licensing agreement, contract, or any other agreement to control access to such property shall have the right to forbid possession of a weapon or long gun on their property, except as provided in Code Section 16-11-135.

(e) Any person licensed to carry a handgun or weapon in any other state whose laws recognize and give effect to a license issued pursuant to this part shall be authorized to carry a weapon in this state, but only while the licensee is not a resident of this state; provided, however, that such licensee shall carry the weapon in compliance with the laws of this state.

(f) Any person with a valid hunting or fishing license on his or her person, or any person not required by law to have a hunting or fishing license, who is engaged in legal hunting, fishing, or sport shooting when the person has the permission of the owner of the land on which the activities are being conducted may have or carry on his or her person a handgun or long gun without a valid weapons carry license while hunting, fishing, or engaging in sport shooting.

(g) Notwithstanding Code Sections 12-3-10, 27-3-1.1, 27-3-6, and 16-12-122 through 16-12-127, any person with a valid weapons carry license may carry a weapon in all parks, historic sites, or recreational areas, as such term is defined in Code Section 12-3-10, including all publicly owned buildings located in such parks, historic sites, and recreational areas, in wildlife management areas, and on public transportation; provided, however, that a person shall not carry a handgun into a place where it is prohibited by federal law.

(h) (1) No person shall carry a weapon without a valid weapons carry license unless he or she meets one of the exceptions to having such license as provided in subsections (a) through (g) of this Code section.

(2) A person commits the offense of carrying a weapon without a license when he or she violates the provisions of paragraph (1) of this subsection.

Nothing about open carry in Georgia Statutes. Open carry is treated EXACTLY as concealed carry is.

Yep. You are correct. Just wanted to get opinions of trouble. I had read most of what Navy posted already.

I've carried in 5 states with no issues and always research but Georgia is shall we say unique in the area of problems.

Well my trip is about over... No issues .. A few raised eyebrows and a few looks... Nothing out of sorts.
The only thing I heard was at a hotel breakfast area. A kid told his mom that he was scared because of that man... She said "honey I think he is a policeman.... "
I didn't say a word...
My carry rig is a leather Galico with retention.

A family dinner at a local restaurant was funny... A cousin I rarely see asked me was my handgun real...
I handed him my extra magazine and said well it wouldn't be useful if it wasn't.....
