    I applied for my GFL on November 29th, 2005. When I applied I was told that it would take "a couple of months." Today (Jaunuary 27, 2006) is the 60th day so I called the Probate Court and asked them about the status of my GFL. I was told that it usually takes "12 weeks, and sometimes more."

    Congrats. I am assuming ink fingerprints (rather than Livescan)?

    Time for renewal, mine expires 02/14/2011. Boy time flies!

    Entered the main courthouse building and had to go through a metal detector. Went in to probate court 01/19/2011. No wait. They wanted to see DL. Paid $75 dollars cash (can only be cash). Filled out forms. Most things seemed to be updated with "weapons license." They treated it like new all over again, not like a renual.
    Did not ask for SSN or job info. They did not ask to see my current "GFL" either. I am not certain but I think one of the forms did have a spot for SSN but I left it blank and they didn't say anything, but I'm not certain about this. Anyway, a probate court employee did the prints in the office on a small livescan machine, no ink. Ink for the one print actually for the GWL. I asked about getting a temp. for $1. They said they don't do that anymore because the background checks come back so fast now and that I should get my GWL in about 2 weeks so why waste the dollar? I said, "Okay." I will post here when I get the GWL in the mail. Easy process.

    Nice looking for a laminated GWL (best I've ever seen). Marked "Georgia Weapons Carry License" on front and back.

    I just applied for my license today (3/31/11), the staff at the court house were very nice and pretty quick. Although, they won't let you apply between 11:30 and 2:00, due to people going to lunch. I'll keep everyone posted on how long it takes to receive my license.
