I just looked it up on the Michigan website. http://michigan.gov/documents/ri-012_7736_7.pdf
Heres what it says that pertains to you:
Have not been convicted of one of the following misdemeanors in the 8 years immediately preceding the date of application:
Reckless driving, MCL 257.626
IF it was a Georgia conviction, there is a chance you can get a CPL before the 8 years goes by, although that's by no means guaranteed, that's just me not knowing if out of state convictions are handled differently, and in fact I tend to doubt that would work. If it was in Michigan, you're definitely going to have to wait.
Either way, it's not all bad. I've been OCing with no CPL since 07.
One thing I gotta point out, is that NO, it's not legal to OC or even own a pistol in this state unless it's registered or you're an out of state CPL holder witha primary residence in the licensing state. They don't look at your gun anymore when you register it, but they definitely still register them. If you don't have an out of state CPL and drivers license or a military ID, a non registered pistol was and still is illegal. So basically when the GA license expires, you'll be SOL if it isn't registered. Make sure you take care of that.
