    Is CCW Class Required in GA?

    Hi All,

    I've read on different areas on this site that a CCW Class is required before some states will issue a person their CCW License. Is that the same here in GA?

    I found my county's permit process online (https://dklbweb.dekalbga.org/courts/probate/pistol.htm#) and the process didn't say anything about taking a CCW Class. Although I plan to take additional handgun training classes in the future I wanted to know if this was a requirement before I took a half day off work to go down to the courthouse and police station and apply for my permit, only to find out that I need to take a CCW class first.

    Unless there's some special rule in your county (and I don't think they can do that) then no. Just go through the process at the courthouse, wait a while, and you got it!

    No class necessary. Some of us are waiting longer than others! I'm into week 6 now and getting impatient. Called the probate court and sheriff and got transferred round until I gave up and went back to work. What will you be carrying? Murdoch and I are CW9 'brothers".

    Man, I would love to have a Kahr CW9 or PM9 but the price is a little much for me right now. I think I'm going to try to carry my Ruger P95 but I also plan to pick up something that's more concealable like a Bersa .380, the new Ruger LCP, Glock 26, XD9 SC, Kel-Tec PF9 or P11. So many options.

    What do you guys think about those options? Also, which range do you frequent in GA?

    I've shot the G26...I like it alright. Good mag capacity but wasn't a fan of the trigger (compared to Kahr). Really, I chose against it based on the thickness (might have been different if Glock did single stack).

    Shot a Kel-Tec and REALLY didn't like the trigger. Also, I wanted something I could put 1000s of rounds through reliably and comfortably. Kel-Tec didn't fit this.

    I feel you on the Kahr price...that's what ended up confirming the CW9 over the PM9. Worth every penny, though.

    I frequent American Classic Marksman over in Norcross due to proximity. $300 for a year and all the time I want (plus free rentals, which helped me make my decision) . Haven't really explored other range options.

    I stopped by American Classic Marksman for the first time a few weeks back. Seems like they have a good set up there. They were telling me that they offered several classes and I also found out that the Atlanta IDPA shoots there every Wednesday.

    It's a little out of the way for me but I like the setup. I usually go to Georgia Range and Guns down in Forest Park. They have the Basic Firearms course but not much else from what I can tell. They offer one on one instruction if you want it.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I'm further south than you, so I can't help you on ranges.. I picked up my CW9 for just over $400. And I've had exactly 1 FTF/Malfunction over 350+ rounds, which was likely a bad primer (cheap range ammo).
