Hello and let me start by saying, hello I am new to Georgia

Now on renewing GFL. I live in Carroll Co. Last time I renewed my GFL was Feb/2006. I had no troubles at all renewing my Lic. I went to the Probate Court payed the $15.00 renewal fee and that was that. The only thing that I regret was that at the time my GFL would of expired in Aug/2006 so I renewed early because I didn't think I would of been in town to renew it before it would of expired in turn I lost a few months off of my GFL other then that I received my renewed Lic. not to long from the I can't remember how long it took to receive the new Lic. in the mail though. Now I took a friend of mine that at the time was fairly new to the State Of Ga. who lives in Cobb Co. to get his first GFL and the process was straight forward it took about 1hr he received his GFL. about 3 months later his wife received it faster about 2months.

I've read your post several times, and I'm not sure what statement you are making, or what questions you have. If you could add some additional info and clarify your comments, I expect that you will receive some replies.

Again, welcome to the forum :)
I think you are asking about not receiving your GWL before your current one expires. If that is the case, at the time of renewal you can ask for a temp GWL.

Temporary Renewal License

* Any person who holds a license under this Code section to carry a pistol or revolver may, at the time he applies for a renewal of the license, also apply for a temporary renewal license if less than 90 days remain before expiration of the license he then holds or if his previous license has expired within the last 30 days.
* Unless the judge of the probate court knows or is made aware of any fact which would make the applicant ineligible for a five-year renewal license, the judge shall at the time of application issue a temporary renewal license to the applicant.
* Such a temporary renewal license shall be in the form of a paper receipt indicating the date on which the court received the renewal application and shall show the name, address, sex, age, and race of the applicant and that the temporary renewal license expires 90 days from the date of issue.
* During its period of validity the temporary renewal permit, if carried on or about the holder's person together with the holder's previous license, shall be valid in the same manner and for the same purposes as a five-year license.
* A $1.00 fee shall be charged by the probate court for issuance of a temporary renewal license.

For those that have to renew in the next few months in a county known for delays, it would probably be a good idea to get a temporary renewal when you apply.
