    I'm new to the OC and CC. Can anyone help me with the rules and/or regulations on open and concealed? I have my carry permit.

    GA is a long way from the PNW. This group is mostly made up of OR and WA folks and we mostly focus on that.

    Hopefully someone can help you out though.

    Your state has a really chinsy way of listing the laws, they use lexisnexis...

    Here is a starting point:
    http://www.georgiapacking.org/law.php

    Afterwards, look at the actual laws, which I can't easily post, so you'll have to browse to them.
    http://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/gacode/Default.asp
    Read everything in
    Chapter 11 - Offenses Against Public Order and Safety
    Article 4 - Dangerous Instrumentalitties and Practices
    Part 3 - Carrying and Possession of Firearms.

    This will include everything that you need to know.

    Not quite sure why you would make that inquiry on this forum. As noted above, this is the Pac Northwest, not the deep southeast. Rules are different here.

    #1 piece of advice is to find your state's (or whatever state you are going to) laws on firearms and self-defense and study them. Don't just read them, but study them, dig in, look up definitions, and ask questions. Don't expect the "right" answers from local PD, you will probably know more than they do. Find a local (GA) board online where you can ask question, and if you need to, call a lawyer to answer more detailed questions. If you carry a gun, it would not be a bad idea to have a phone number to call inc case you need to use it.
