Georgia Department of Law, from the office of Thurbert E. Baker, Attorney General


Montana added by Attorney General Baker to List of States Entitled to Georgia's Firearm Permit Reciprocity

March 27, 2002

Attorney General Thurbert Baker announced today an addition to Georgia’s program of reciprocal recognition to firearms permit holders from other states. Legislation passed in 1996 allowed Georgia to grant this privilege to citizens of states which recognized Georgia firearms permits.

The State of Montana has now determined that it will honor Georgia firearms permits effective March 31, 2002. Therefore, effective March 31, 2002, Georgia will recognize firearms permits issued by Montana.

With this revision, Georgia now reciprocates in recognizing firearms licenses with the following states:

Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Wyoming.
