    I live in DeKalb county, the address on my drivers license is in DeKalb. Can I apply for a GFL in another county (in this case Lowndes)?

    It sounds like you are a resident of DeKalb. You must apply in the same county in which you live.

    Do you have a utility bill (from this or last month) with your name on it addressed in that county (Lowndes)?

    Other than having that proof you have a residence there, Lowndes Probate Court will not accept your application.

    They typically want a gas, electric or water bill.

    Viper32cm,

    You must apply where you are domiciled.

    "The judge of the probate court of each county may, on application under oath and on payment of a fee of $15.00, issue a license or renewal license valid for a period of five years to any person whose domicile is in that county . . . which license or renewal license shall authorize that person to carry any pistol or revolver in any county of this state notwithstanding any change in that persońs county of residence or state of domicile."
