    I lived in Georgia for a number of years...just recently moved.
    Here, take a look at this...

    Summary
    Georgia is not a traditional open carry state. However, open carry IS legal with a Georgia permit. It is also worthy of note that you MAY openly carry a firearm without a permit in a motor vehicle.

    But don't take my word for it or the internet for that matter.
    It's best to go and ask your local sheriff. Good luck! :wavey:

    Yes, your GFL or GWL (if recently issued) does allow for open or concealed carry.

    The key words here are highlighted in red. The gun may be concealed, not must or shall be concealed.

    Also bear in mind that GA Senate Bill 308, which was signed by Gov. Purdue last month, takes away the language requiring the use of a holster.
