    I'm quite familiar with the laws for North Carolina and NYC but haven't taken the time to read up on Georgia's. :hs: I'm just looking for the basics (ie: age to own/shoot, gun range/license requirements etc etc).

    like all other states, according to federal law, it's 21 to purchase/possess handguns, 18 for rifles and shotguns. as for renting, no FFL-valuing range will rent a pistol to you if you're under 21, because at that point, you'd be in possession of it underage. now, if someone 21 or older rents it, it's a non-issue. as for ownership licensing, we live in a non-communist state, so there's no licensing of owners or their firearms under state law. you must still comply with any federal firearms laws, such as the NFA, as far as registration goes.

    GA allows concealed carry. once again, you must be 21, and in a couple weeks, i'll tell you the particulars of what to do to get your "Georgia Firearms Permit", which is what the carry permit is called.

    GA allows all NFA firearms. find a firearm-friendly CLEO to sign your form 4, or save up enough money to take a non-firearm-friendly one all the way to the federal supreme court for violating your 2nd amendment rights by not signing off on a form 4.

    I'll have to look into some of the ones around here (Stone Mountain) and see if I can find one that would look past my age and see the maturity within. :o
