    CT non-resident permit

    What are the costs/requirements? I thought I saw you needed an NRA class w/LIVE FIRE scores. I have the class but no documented scores, is that correct?

    I do not remember the exact cost, but it was something like $40 for 5 years. You do not need documented scores, just a NRA pistol safety class certificate. Call the Connecticut State Police at 860-685-8494 and make sure you tell them non-resident. (Otherwise they will forward you to your local CT police department.) The police in Stamford were very nice about doing the fingerprinting (unlike my local precinct which first looked shocked and then said no way). They even refused to take my money for the finger printing because I was in EMS uniform.

    I went through the Middletown DPS they were helpful @ 860-685-8123. It took 13wks. $19.25 for fingerprint fees, $35.00 for permit. Copy of firearms safety course for pistols & revolvers doesn't have to be NRA, no scores needed. They will send your app. package back if not complete make sure you have everything they ask for to the letter.

    I looked into this and the stumbling block for me was finding the appropriate class.

    The second issue for me--as a non-resident-- was how to get a gun into CT. You have to go through either NY and NJ or through Mass., unless you fly into Hartford.

    Then, there were restrictions I noted that made me kind of concerned that it was not going to be worth my effort. I don't recall what they were-- I looked into this last year.

    What I saw on CT's website was an NRA class would be acceptable for training. I haven't received the package yet, but a number of states also require a permit from another state,which I have.
    I don't plan on going to CT, I want it for 2 reasons, to help our "cause". Higher numbers of CCW, the better. Also, I wanted to add extra permits before I send off for NJ's permit. May not help but can't hurt.

    If you're not a Connecticut resident, you'll need to send a photocopy of your current permit. If you don't have a home-state permit (because, for example, you live in New Jersey), then send a copy of your Florida, Utah, or whatever you have and a copy of your NJ FID (which they don't ask for on the application form, but they'll send it back if you don't supply it.) Also, there is a question on the Connecticut form asking you to state the "purpose" for wanting the permit. The question is to fulfill the legislative requirement that they "inquire as to whether you intend to use a firearm for an illegal purpose." Just put down "self defense, target shooting, and all legal purposes," or something similar. You don't have to "justify" why you want it; we're essentially "shall issue." But you have to answer the question that you do not intend to do anything illegal. Silly? Of course, but that's almost a requirement for any law passed by our state legislature -- and by the other 49, too.

    Mine arrived today like 10 minutes ago which I'd sent off over 60 days ago.

    I had sent it off along with PA, NH, and FL all on the same day.
    PA arrived within weeks, NH several weeks there after, and CT months later. I'm still waiting on FL.

    Actually, less than that. WV doesn't ask what your purpose is. I highly doubt any gangbanger will put down he needs the permit to conduct "thuglike activities," so I'm not sure what it serves, other than maybe a legal way out if some CCWer goes nuts and kills people.
