ShootistPRS The definition of residency as listed in 27 CFR 478.11 as required in 2010-6 ATF ruling:

State of residence. The State in which an individual resides. An individual resides in a State if he or she is present in a State with the intention of making a home in that State. If an individual is on active duty as a member of the Armed Forces, the individual's State of residence is the State in which his or her permanent duty station is located, as stated in 18 U.S.C. 921(b). The following are examples that illustrate this definition:
Example 1.
A maintains a home in State X. A travels to State Y on a hunting, fishing, business, or other type of trip. A does not become a resident of State Y by reason of such trip.

Since the question is whether or not the person is a resident and the definition used in the document excludes his visitation as "residency" he cannot purchase a gun out of state.
For your example, that would be correct.

And your example in no way, shape or form comes anywhere close to the OP's situation.
OP isn't on a "trip" or visit..........HE'S LIVING THERE.
All he has to do is get a government issued document that shows his name and current address in GA. (and the example of the RV'ers is the same)
