I hate that I am going to have to be unarmed for a period of time since carry is a part of my life style.... I wish you old permit provide a carry over period until your new permit arrived when you move.....
You are eligible for a Georgia Weapons Carry License (GWCL) from your
county of residency once you establish residency (get DL etc.). Once you
establish residency, your Fl. license will no longer be valid in Ga., but it
will still be valid in some of the states that do not recognize Ga. license,
(like South Carolina AFAIK).
Gwinnett County is one of the less friendly counties, IMO, when it comes to
getting your GWCL, but they are required to abide by Georgia Statutes
just like all other counties.
See link for GWCL requirements below:http://www.gacarry.org/cms/ga-code-detail/?title=16&chapter=11§ion=129www.handgunlaw.us
might have some helpful info also.
Hope you enjoy your stay in Georgia. By the way, if you are active duty
Military, you are exempt from the license requirement. GeorgiaPacking.org
also has a great forum that discusses current info for all types of questions, including current county performance ratings.
