    Greetings,

    I'm a FL resident w/ a FL CWP, and I have a question regarding carrying in GA. I poked around a bit on GeorgiaPacking.org, but I still need some clarification.

    I'll be staying in a GA state park soon, and it appears I can't have a loaded firearm in the park. If I read it correctly, the firearm must be unloaded and stored so as not to be readily accessible.

    What I'm looking for is clarification on "readily accessible". What qualifies as being not readily accessible? Stored in the trunk? Stored in a locked box? Unlocked glove box? Links to examples or info would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, a good summary of the differences between GA & FL concealed carry laws would be superb.

    Thanks for your help.

    Here is the most complete collection of information on GA's carry laws: http://www.georgiapacking.org/law.php

    I don't know what "readily accessible" means, but I do know that getting caught with a loaded, accessible gun results in a misdemeanor trespassing charge.

    So....take that for what it's worth.
