Georgia, New Law Recognizes Virginia Concealed Handgun Permits

Virginia – -( The Georgia Governor has just signed legislation which clarifies that Georgia honors Virginia CHPs! (Our Governor in Virginia vetoed a Virginia bill that would have fixed the problem from our end.)

The new law goes into effect immediately, BUT DO NOT CARRY outside your vehicle in Georgia until the Georgia Attorney General shows Virginia permits as being honored on his website.

(The Georgia Attorney General is similar to our own Attorney General when it comes to guns and reciprocity. And, like our Attorney General, the Georgia General Assembly has just put him in his place.)

If you have a Florida or Utah nonresident CHP, you are good to go as usual.

I will advise once the Georgia Attorney General acknowledges Virginia permits are valid in Georgia.

Virginia owes a sincere debt of gratitude to my counterpart, Jerry Henry, and his group, Georgia Carry, to the Georgia General Assembly, especially State Representatives Powell, Jasperse, Clark, Lumsden, and Collins, and to Georgia Governor Nathan Deal.

Until the Georgia Attorney General acknowledges that Virginia permits are valid, Georgia Carry/VCDL/EM Bod Sadtler will keep moving forward with existing litigation against the Georgia Attorney General.

Stay tuned!

If I live in Georgia and get a Virginia CCW permit will Georgia up hold it


I have to go down to Florida end of May. The NRA website shows it as being legal. Is this correct?

If I am right it is okay in NC, SC and Florida. Please confirm.

Chris, he needs a “50-state box” that is lockable for travel, not a holster. If he is going to carry a firearm into states his permit is not recognized, he must have the firearm unloaded and locked in the box, preferably with ammo locked in another, out of reach in the vehicle. Pelican makes great boxes for this but they are expensive. Look for alternates on Amazon. Also, always check the gun laws of any state you travel to. Some are worth avoiding.


Look up “MDJ Custom Holsters” . They have an extensive line of custom made hybrid holsters that you can order for the pistol you have. very good website. Most are less than $40 and free shipping. Ordered one for my Canik TP9SA and received it in 4 days. Perfect fit and has adjustable retention. Very pleased with it.

Well, “concealed is concealed”, so just “carry on”.


I am not a rep for any company but two sellers that are available for online sources are Davidson’s Gallery of guns @ and Grab a Gun @ Both offer AR-15’s for sale BUT they must be shipped to and sold via a FFL holder. Also check with your local dealers to see their prices. Prices right now are more reasonable than the liberals desire but never trust a liberal. Good luck.

Chris Cramer - Sfetku

To whom it may concern, my name is Chris Cramer – Sfetku. After finding a receipt for ammo my husband Emmett Sfetku I decided to reach out to you. My husband is on permanent disability and suffers from so much pain every hour of every day, although he never complains about it or shows. He takes pain pills from his Dr but he hates taking those. He does everything for me and my 2 kids as well as his 2 daughters and his/our 5 grandchildren from his daughters. They live in WI And doesn’t get to see them much since… Read more »


For a holster, I might recommend you look for some online. When I went to the NRA annual show a couple weekends ago, I noticed that there were several online, but mine most resembles the DTOM Premium LEATHER (not synthetic) Universal IWB or OWB Ambidextrous Belt SLIDE Holster. Mine is made of heavy fabric, making it comfortable both inside and outside the pants. Several shoulder holsters are also available on Amazon.
