Florida has reciprocity with Georgia on concealed carry of firearms. What I can't find out is whether you can carry an automatic knife legally concealed in Georgia with a weapons permit/license. Anybody know for sure ?

I don't think that you can, FLA's permit is a concealed WEAPONS permit, it isn't limited to just guns, many states only issue concealed gun permits. Visit GA's website for clarification
This is the best I could do...a little like trying to decipher Florida statutes!
O.C.G.A. § 16-11-126
Carrying a concealed weapon
(a) A person commits the offense of carrying a concealed weapon when such person knowingly has or carries about his or her person, unless in an open manner and fully exposed to view, any bludgeon, knuckles whether made from metal, thermoplastic, wood, or other similar material, firearm, knife designed for the purpose of offense and defense, or any other dangerous or deadly weapon or instrument of like character outside of his or her home or place of business, except as permitted under this Code section.
(b) Upon conviction of the offense of carrying a concealed weapon, a person shall be punished as follows:

As a younger man I subscribed to quick witted philosophical wording, yet as I age I realize I knew nothing about that wording, wisdom truly comes from variations in one's life over periods of time, not from mirroring someone else's thoughts or words..
milkmanjoe asks "Could a short shotgun be the answer to home defense?"
Yes, I would think it would be the best defense, but you have to ask...is 4 inches worth 200 dollars. I think it is. I just pray to God that I never have to prove it. The SBS taken in to evidence by the local PD just seems to open a can of worms. Winchester makes a low recoil buckshot that is wonderful. PS ghost ring rear site with tritium front is kind of cool.
Any more questions, take it to the class three thread.
