    Don't know, but since the application goes straight to DPS, it should take to long - maybe a couple of weeks. I doubt there are too many people wanting non-resident permits since the only states East of the Mississippi River that honor the resident permit are Vermont, Indiana, Kentucky and Tennessee.

    The only reason I can imagine someone getting one is to actually visit and carry here.

    Mine only took around 1 month, but that was almost a year ago. Expect at least a month I presume.

    Add Michigan to that list. Michigan recognizes any resident permit.

    That's got to have been scary.

    Yeah, Mystic is really nice.

    Good reason to have a CoM safe. You can pull over and lock up right there.

    Just got mine a few months back. Took less than the time it said on the forms. If I remeber it said 60 days and it was more like 45.

    Make sure you follow the dirrections to a T! My buddy had a very small mistake and it was sent back.

    Good luck

    I couldn't find my passport or birth certificate because they require proof of citizenship....requested a copy of my Voter Registration card from Board of Elections....then it went in the mail...here's hoping...

    Is Michigan East of the Mississippi? :)

    That's the criteria I used for my comment. :)

    Did you contact CT DPS to see if they would accept the substitute?

    If not, your application will most likely be returned for not providing the proper documentation.

    It was listed as something they would accept to prove citizenship...thanks.

    My apology - you are absolutely correct. Since I had both passport and birth certificate in hand, I guess I didn't finish reading the sentence. :)

    Again, I don't know how many non-resident applications DPS processes, but the wait shouldn't be too long. When it arrives, enjoy carrying in CT, but remember that even though we are supposedly an open-carry state, if you open carry and someone calls in "man with a gun", plan on possibly spending a considerable amount of time and energy fighting a breach-of-peace or brandishing charge and getting your permit and gun back.

    Concealed carry is the ONLY way to stay out of trouble here.

    Oh, BTW I forgot to mention you will need another permit in order to get a CT non-res. Not sure whether it needs to be your home state or not......
