    Hi from Georgia

    New handgun owner. I'm currently going through the 6 months of waiting to get my GFL.
    Hopefully, it won't take that long but our county is known for dragging its feet.

    I own a Jennings model 38 .32. My next handgun will be a S&W .40

    Welcome from South Georgia. Have you taken a look at georgiacarry.org yet? There may be some help there for your permit. Six months sounds like an exorbitant amount of time.

    Welcome Aboard from Camden county Georgia!
    Check out georgiapacking.org for info on GFL's, time lines, and info on georgiacarry.org.....they can help with the six month wait, maybe....and it's a good 'grassroots' group to be a part of.

    Welcome from Montana.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
