Georgia PATCON – 31 Mar/1 April – Hard Labor Creek State Park

More detail to follow, but here’s the place. Of course, our patriotic brothers and sisters from around the Southeast are invited, too.

There’ll be a nearby place to shoot as well (again, detail to follow), but this is neither going to be a speechifying session or a gun show.

From an email to a supporter:

Here’s my draft “plan” for the shindig:

Once we have a quorum (1100 or so on Saturday), we say:

Guys, we’re here to work. Folks who want to go shoot can do that, and we’ll have a volunteer to lead you over there.

There are a group of categories that need work, so I’d ask anybody who is here to work to self-select into the area where they can be most useful. Each group will then self-organize and start hashing through the issues. Each subject matter group will give a readout of their progress at 1730, with Sunday’s session to close the gaps from today.

The groups include:

-Operations During “Peacetime”/Political Actions

-Intel – Collection, Analysis, and Dissemination

-Food/Water – Production, Preservation, Storage, and Utilization

-Commo – RF and Internet/How do we stay in touch as things come apart

-Medical – How do we get trained up as far as we can go, along with associated med supply acquisition/storage

-Shooting/Ammunition: What opps currently exist in GA and what do we need to bring?

– Mobility/Transport – How do we move when gas is $10/gal if it is even available?

    Its on guys.

    Shooting will be at the local Charlie Elliot Wildlife Management Area.
    50 yd and 100yd range
    Shooting requires a new permission slip called the GORP (stupid name)
    Check out the details here

    A single day pass is available.

    Its a good range but can be crowded.

    • “Individuals who have a valid WMA License, Honorary License, Sportsmen’s License, Lifetime License or Three-Day Hunting and Fishing License.”

      To note, if you’ve already got your WMA or Hunting License, you’re covered, and are OK to shoot at the range.

      They will check as well. They’ve checked me before.

  2. I shoot at this range once a week. Charlie Elliott. One range master is cool as hell, he’s a younger guy, the other guy is an older guy, he’s a real ball breaker. As stated, sometimes its busy as hell, other times, there is literally nobody there. I can pretty much bet you that, on these days at this time, it will be busy. Sometimes there can be some real douches out there as well.

    Hell yes, this stuff has me pumped. Can’t wait to meet some of you guys.

    I can literally walk to Hard Labor Creek from my home.

    Charlie Elliott is about a 30 minute drive.

    I’ll be bringing a neighbor of mine, who is also really excited to come.

    I can’t wait for this.

  3. Go Georgia,

    Lets see some more too.

  4. Ohh also, on your way to Charlie Elliott, you are going to go through two small towns where the speed limits dip way down, WATCH YOUR F’IN SPEED! One of these little towns in particular has some ball busting outback Nazi types working for them. Watch out. Stand up for your rights, though, if they try to pull anything. They like to set up traps, and they give tickets like they were passing out candy. I’m talking just for 5mph over. They might even try to basically force there way for a search if they see you are the patriot type. Just stand by your rights, and try to record everything if you get pulled over. Also, try to go back roads around the heart of the small towns, do not go down the main drag of the town either. I know I don’t, and I live in one of them. Best of luck gents.

  5. Weapons: Bows and arrows, explosives, fireworks, slingshots, fishing spears or any device that discharges projectiles by any means is prohibited. Firearms must be unloaded, cased and stored, unless a person possesses a valid weapons-carry license for a firearm that is valid in Georgia. A person possessing a valid weapon-carry license to carry a firearm valid in this state may carry such firearm on Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites, except on sites where carrying such firearm is prohibited by federal law. Firearms except those that are unloaded, cased and stored are not permitted on sites that are leased, federal Army Corps of Engineers property, including:
    Red Top Mountain
    George T. Bagby
    Florence Marina
    Bobby Brown
    Richard B. Russell
    Elijah Clark

    Reciprocal Firearms Agreements
    Some states have reciprocal firearms agreements with Georgia, and their citizens may possess a firearm as long as they possess a valid weapons carry permit from their respective state. These include:
    Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

    Make sure you check out this section. There is more too it.

      This is business did you plan on marching in a parade?
      If you dont have a permission slip from nanny (carry permit) then keep them in the truck till you hit the range.
      We are not going out here to protest thats a different time and place. This is for planning and getting our shit together. If we have to suck it up and follow their stupid rules for this then so be it.

    • Grenadier1

      Thank you however for pointing this out for anyone not aware of GA law for parks.
      Some folks dont pay attention to it and we dont want to give any opportunity for problems to be created.

      • “Some folks dont pay attention to it and we dont want to give any opportunity for problems to be created.”

        That’s why I posted it. I don’t want to give any opportunity for problems to be created.

        Unfortunately, I do have one of those nanny carry permits. F’in BS, I know, but I try to remain out of jail for as long as possible so I can be there for my family if festivities kick off. I’ll have at least a sidearm on me, that I carry everyday, no matter where I go. We need Constitutional Carry in Georgia something awful.

        Also, nobody has been able to answer the question on long guns. I know you DO NOT need a permit to carry a long gun in the open in Georgia, if other wise legal to own and carry, so 18 yo or older none felon, violent misd, ect, and I see no reason that would change inside the State Park. So if you want to be armed, but do not have a carry permit (GWCL) you could always carry your long gun at the park. I’ll probably keep my long guns in the truck, as I do not make it a habit to carry them on me, and this should be just like any other day.

        Agreed, I can’t wait to get to business, and look forward to participating. I’ll see ya’ll out there.

        • Grenadier1

          Good to go!
          Was not sure of your motivation there and thought you might be pointing out the absurdity of a PATCOM with gun restrictions. I know it is what it is but I was not ready to give access to my private land for this so I suggested HLC to Concerned American and he ran with it. We have been exchanging ideas in the background and have some good material to go over. Hope everyone sounds off thats planning on attending.

          • No problem, Grenadier1, I can see how you could have suspected that, but its all good. Glad to see we’re on the same level.

            I would not have given access to my private land for a PatCon, either.

            I think HLC is a perfect places for a PatCon, and I couldn’t applaud ya’ll anymore for picking this location.

            I can’t wait to see the good information that you all have put together.


              Just curious,…why are you and Grenadier1 so convicted about not having a PATCON on your private land?

              • Grenadier1

                I dont know many of you yet.
                Some of you guys I have met face to face some of you I have not.

  6. It’s On Man! Bring on the Revolution… er, Re-founding.

  7. good work Gents!

    • Glad to see you are going to be there, Tom. I really enjoyed your speech up in NC when I saw you at the RTC up there.

      As well, I really enjoyed your book, and your recent article on the COTUS and militia.

  11. 0800: Colors – which would those be?
