SC CWP holder visiting GA question

Going to be staying in a cabin in GA for a few days. While there I'm going to do a few walking trails. I know that a SC CWP is no good in GA, but does that also bar me from carrying a pistol on these trails? I'm going to assume it does. I tried to sift through the GA public safety site, but its a damn mess (too me at least).

At first, I was concerned with Bob cats and bears, but I've been told by some co workers that getting your ass robbed out worse is a real possibility in the mountains and basically there are people who just wait for tourists to come stay at the cabins. Paranoia, probably but it does make me think.

Probably not enough time for you but get a Utah nonres permit and you would be covered in Georgia. Utah gives you about six more states I think. You can find a Utah class in SC.

As a recent transplant to Georgia, I noticed very few states share reciprocity with the Palmetto State. Is there a particular reason for this?

Don't know what the law is but just wondered if open carry is an option since you'll be walking trails in the woods? I use an app called Legal Heat to keep me up on reciprocity and related legal issues. May want to check it out if you haven't already.

In GA, you must have a "Georgia Firearms Permit" for concealed AND open carry, except when hunting. I have yet to come across a person who open carries though (firing ranges and gun stores excluded).

Legal Heat says what Frank says. Interesting though, it also states that long gun open carry is accepted with no permit. Go figure!

Only in reference to hunting. I wouldn't try that in the middle of Atlanta, or a state park.

+1

I can carry in almost every state in the union with SC and NH. Process is super simple. Fill out form include copy of SC permit and add money.

My KY is good in GA. Why SC and GA not friendly?

I wish I knew. As a College of Charleston alumni, I'd like to be able to carry when visiting Charleston.

SC will not acept GA because there are no training requirements. Since SC won't accept GA, GA reciprocated..

GA & AL do not have reciprocity with SC due to their not requiring training classes. SC requires 8-hr classroom, including legal talk, photograph, fingerprints, and testing on the classroom lecture. After the class, SC requires a demonstration of proficiency with a handgun. A B-52 target, at 3 yds, 5 yds, 10 yds, IIRC. Have to have at least 70% in the black, which is overly easy, but required.

I have a FL non-resident CWP for the simple reason that FL has reciprocity with GA, and I'm just 30 miles from the Savannah River.

FYI. Alabama now recognizes South Carolina's, and all other state permits.

I open carry in Savannah all the time. I open carried on River Street on many occasions, even sat in Wet Willies for lunch next to a table full of cops and while I saw them looking at my 1911, nobody said anything to me. Oddly, that was the only time I recall seeing anyone looking at it.
