Hello everyone, 

 

I took a drive up to Middletown, CT today with my family to the CT State Police Headquarters to renew my CCW permit in person. At first I wasn't sure what to expect or how I would be treated based on the Google reviews I read earlier in the week, but all in all I was in and out within 10 minutes tops.

 

Upon pulling into the parking lot you'll see that the parking spaces were individually marked "visitor parking" 

 

Then upon entering the building you'll see signs stating "no weapons allowed beyond this point" which was to be expected. Upon entering I was greeted by a courteous and friendly trooper who checked me in and directed me to their firearms licensing division. 

 

Once I got on line 2 people were ahead of me, one gentleman was completing his application and allowed me to skip him in line. The lady ahead of me was renewing her permit and was done in 4-5 minutes tops. Once it was my turn I presented my renewal notice, the $70 cash payment, and my old CCW permit. The lady at the counter was nice, took my photo, got my electronic signature and I was out within 4-5 minutes at that point once my new card was printed.

 

All in all it was a good experience and it felt wierd to taste "freedom" - after we were done we drove an extra 20 minutes to Cabelas

What is the initial procedure for Connecticut? Class? Live fire? Or is it like the PA non resident?

Did you need the renewal notice notorized in person or you just handed the old license with the cash.

No -  if you renew in person the form doesn't need to be notarized since they can physically see you in person and verify you that way based on the photo on your CCW permit. I just handed the cash, along with the old CCW permit along with the renewal notice which I signed in front of her. She then kept my old permit and gave me a new one

Years ago I called the CT state police for an application which they mail you along with the requirements. I had to submit proof of knowledge of handgun safety which at the time was my NRA basic pistol certificate, which included live fire training. I'm not sure how it is now but CT will issue a non-resident full carry without you needing to have a full carry in your home state (which is why I decided to apply - in addition I visit friends, go camping and work in CT on occasion)....which is weird because most counties in PA wont issue a non-resident full carry unless you have a full carry from your home state. I know of one NYC resident here who got full carry in PA but used his hunting auth card / credentials to get it. I may have to research this further.

 

The other weird thing is that we can all agree that CT is more anti-gun than PA, but to me has a more relaxed way of issuing non-resident CCWs

In all honesty I could have mailed in the renewal but decided to do it in person since I wanted to experience the process...plus the CT State Police office was on the way to Cabelas anyway lol, so it made the trip worthwhile the time and gas

My pleasure!

 

(If only dealing with the NYC/NYS pistol licensing divisions were as pleasant!)

I went to the website and did a search for instructor led courses. I live in western Nassa (Roslyn Has). The search came up with NO RESUKLTS for a radius of 500 miles!

For any questions with regards to acceptable proofs of handgun safetycerts I'd say try calling the CT state trooper licensing division directly

when I got my ct non res a few years back they sent me back my completed application with a letter stating I needed a ct approved instructor for my training course so I googled and found this guy Lou eden from con-fire LLC, drove to ct and did the class at his house, I was the only one there lol, was a nice guy, anyway I did the course and resent all the paper work in and got permit a few months later. Also the permit is for concealed AND open carry which I did not know at the time
