    1. A license is required to carry openly or concealed in Georgia.

    2. A Georgia resident must have a Georgia Firearms License (GFL) to carry in Georgia. GA residents cannot use other states' non-resident licenses to carry in Georgia.

    3. You can apply for your GFL as soon as you have something indicating that you live in the county where you intend to apply. (Driver's License, power bill, lease agreement, etc...)

    4. While state law dictates that licenses must be issued within 60 days of application, most counties ignore that law and usually take up to 6 months.


    For reliable information regarding GFLs, do not call your local law enforcement. Check out these online resources instead: http://www.georgiapacking.org http://www.georgiacarry.org

    sixhost, mzmtg has answered all of your questions. I suggest you do visit the link he provided. In addition, this web site also states that a license is required for open carry (which is why Georgia is orange on the map).

    One suggestion - don't ask the police for advice on carry. You are more likely to get false information than not.

    The laws are available here and over at Georgiapacking.org.
