Default ccw or in the open

Im just trying to find out some info. I have a ccw and i carry in the open as well as concealed, depending on what i feel like that day. A ccw permit is good for either in the open or concealed in the state of ga correct?

If I am in the woods OC . The rest for me is CC. Don't care to draw the attention or cause the anti's to get all a flustered or some newbe leo a chance to do something stupid. Plus I am simply very use to CC'n with 27 years of doing it.

Looks like here in TN we still have to have a carry license for Open Carry as well as Concealed Carry. A few months ago some guy on a sport bike went by me on rte 65 and he had a semi auto on his belt. I would prefer to not draw attention to myself either...

Heres a crazy idea-
Check on your state laws- a simple call to your local courthouse will do it

If you carry concealed it would make life easier.carrying open draws to much attention in most places

I just seriously don't think questions like that should be answered on a forum (even this one ) Even someone from your own state cud be wrong & you'd be the one to pay for it (mabe dearly) Get info like that 1st hand from the horses mouth Hell, get it in writing if possible - sum LEO's don't know all the laws
