    At the GCO Summer lunch someone at my table mentioned that you can only renew you GFL within 90 day's of it expiring. I'm about to change my address on my DL and figured I would go ahead and renew my GFL which expires next July. I did a quick search and didn't find anything stating you can only renew within 90 days. Is this true?

    Looks like only if you want a temp. I wont need a temp since mine has plenty of time before it expires. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. I don't want to renew because of the address not matching I just want to get it over with while I have time in case I run into problems.


    (i) Temporary renewal licenses.

    (1) 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.

    Technially, there is no limit in the law. You are correct that the limit is only on getting a temporary renewal.

    HOWEVER, (it is a big however)
    As you can see by the list here https://www.georgiapacking.org/gflrenew.php about 2/3 down the page are a bunch of counties that ignore the fact that a temporary renewal permit even exists. Many of those counties and probably others not listed, don't care what the law does or does not say and will limit your renewal window (just this month I was told Chatham county limits to 14 days before expiration). I have also been told that some counties have said to come in 4-5 Months before expiration to renew so the potential delays will not affect them.

    It does not really matter since there is no difference in the renewal process from the initial application process now. This only matters if you are seeking a temporary. If HB 850 passes, it will not even matter then.
