Interesting Gun Fact

Since I started buying guns I have accumulated a let's say not a small collection. I prefer to not say exactly how many guns I own for two reasons.

-First reason - To be honest I'm not sure. I sort of lost count. :)

-Second reason - I've had to do something the last couple of weeks that I really don't like to do. I sold a few guns.

Yes, it's true. Guns are almost like money. At least they can be turned in to cash very quickly. I do recommend that if you find yourself needng money and you have a gun you want to part with - don't sell it to a gun store or try and pawn it. You will be able to get much more for your gun if you find a trustworthy individual and sell it to them. In order to sell a gun to an individual in the State of Georgia you do not need to fill out any type of paper work as long as they live in Georgia and are not prohibited from owning a gun.
Heck you might even be able to sell your gun to me. :)
I like it when guns are on sale.

Walther PPS 9mm

The Walther PPS is one of my favorite handguns.
This from the Walther website-

Walther PPS - More Conceal, Less Carry

The Walther Police Pistol Slim (PPS) model narrows the margin between concealment and confidence by packing Walther innovation into an unbelievable 1.04 inch profile. It's amazing how much professional-grade design actually fits into this lightweight sub-compact. Available in either 9mm or .40S&W, the PPS packs in more power. All in all, the PPS embodies both the legendary quality and tradition of innovation that make it not just a great pistol — but a great Walther pistol.

Gun Information and Your Rights

After I got my first gun I was very concerned that I not do anything that would get me in to trouble with it. While on the internet I discovered two very helpful sites.

GeorgiaCarry.Org is Georgia’s no-compromise voice for gun owners.

GCO believes that citizens of Georgia and the United States have the right to own and carry the firearm of their choice for any reason other than to commit a crime.
GCO works tirelessly to ensure that the rights of gun owners are not compromised by the Georgia General Assembly, local officials, and those who ostensibly support gun rights while they work behind the scenes to erode our liberties. GCO is a non-partisan, grassroots organization, and GCO works for gun owners, not politicians. We are not interested in “access” or being “inside players.” We will not protect or make excuses for politicians who say they are our “friends” and then demonstrate otherwise by voting against us.

Public policy is controlled by the people who consistently show up and stay involved. GCO believes informed, active gun owners are the best defense against those who endeavor to infringe our liberties. To that end, GCO works tirelessly to keep our membership informed and active, and our members respond with equal passion and commitment.

On you can find:

1 - An up to date list of pro and anti gun Bills in the Georgia General Assembly
2 - House and Senate Report cards based on gun related bills they sponsored and voted on.
3 - Georgia Gun Laws in plain English including Deadly Force and Stand Your Ground
4 - Georgia Attorney General Firearm Related UnOfficial Opinions
5 - Firearm Caselaw from the Appellate and Supreme Courts of Georgia.
6 - Weapons Related Georgia Code
7 - Probate Court contact information for all 159 Georgia Counties with a growing list of the actual firearm license process for each county; also accessible through the dropdown box on the left of the menubar at the top of every page
8 - A Firearm Discussion forum to talk about News, Guns, Bills, Laws, Concealed Carry, and the Georgia Weapons License
9 - Places Off Limits to weapons even if you have a Weapons License
10 - License Renewal Guide explaining the changes to the renewal process that went into effect 7-1-06

I joined Georgia Carry and presently serve as the State Membership Coordinator.
