This morning I went to go pick up a new toy along with a friend who was buying his first pistol. Found a Ruger MK 3 I wanted, walked to the counter and started filling out the necessary paperwork. After it was all said and done the store employee told me that I needed to get my GFL changed to my current county of residence. My license was issued in Carroll County and now I live in Paulding. Is there any truth to this or is he just spouting off false information? Also can anyone suggest a good holster for a 1911? My current one is not cutting it anymore.

He is just spouting off information. The license is good until it expires even if you move out of state.

The guy may have gotten his signals crossed. Your Driver's License must reflect your CURRENT address. This is ATF policy. If it does not then you must present other documentation [i.e. utility bills for the past 90 days.] Also I believe it is State law that you have 60 days to change your address after you move.
