    Howdy from Connecticut!

    New member here and new to the state of CT.

    I cannot believe this stupid state says you cannot legally own a handgun unless you first have your permit to carry pistols and revolvers! So, just to move into the state, I was a felon for the 8 weeks it took for the application process because I drove them in from Florida. Had to move for a very good job.

    Anyway, anyone know any good shooting ranges and/or gun stores near the Naugatuck or Bridgeport areas and anywhere in between?

    Thanks in advance!
