Handgun Carry:

 Q.  I live in another county can I still apply for my handgun carry license in Putnam County?

A.    The handgun carry license must be applied for in the county of your permanent residence.

Q.   I  was a resident of another county and have a license from that county that is good for two more years but now I've moved to Putnam County. What do I need to do?

A.   Your license from the other county is still valid; when it is time for it to expire, you will need to apply in Putnam County or your county of residence at that time.

Q.   When I renew my handgun carry license after five years will I have to redo my  fingerprints?

A.   Yes, Georgia law now requires that the fingerprinting be done each time you renew your Georgia handgun carry license.
