So my roommate's folks are letting us use their hunting lodge up in bumblefuck CT with literally 100 acres of forest to shoot and have general outdoor debauchery (quads, kayaks, etc...) over the holiday.

If this turns into a more frequent thing I am certainly going to put in for my CT CCW.

From what I've heard, I should be able to just send them a copy of my FL license and the forms, prints, and fees, and I should be pretty much good to go. Is this correct?

They require some kind of basic safety training, but so does FL, and from what I've read they acknowledge that if you have FL's license your training reqs are fine.

Also - how is the turn around time, because if this is all true, I might just mail it in this week and be good to go mid january when we head up there (wishful thinking, I know)

Also - logistical/legal question. Can we bring handguns into the state (not to carry of course, but to target shoot on private land.) Locked box and ammo separate at all times when it is not being used on their property. Or are they like NY where it is a big no-no?

I have a CT CCW. You need to attend a training class of at least 8-10 hours duration..such as NRA Basic Pistol. I attended the NRA Personal Protection Outside of the Home and they accepted that since it was of 10 hours duration.

LIF just had a Basic Pistol class on Dec. 17th. That would have been the training you needed for CT. I went because I would like to get a Mass. CCW and one of the instructors is certified to give it.

I have the CT application and you have to provide your home state lic. information, they will not issue with Fla. Lic. only.

Under Federal law, you are protected while travelling through the state. However, when you stop, you're breaking the law. I took my wife and her girl friend to shoot in Ct. and (to be safe) I left my guns at home. Between range fees, rental fees and paying range prices for ammo, it was an expensive day. So, I applied and received my Ct. license within 60 days.

With your non-resident Ct. license, you can legally carry concealed once you cross the state line.

Right, but its a no go even to possess one for target shooting (not to carry of course) without the CT non-res license I am assuming?

Also - I take it they didn't give anyone crap about the "TARGET" restrictions or anything?

I used to shoot up in CT often, it's a long time ago, so call the CTSP and ask them to be safe, but back then you didn't need to have a license to possess - only for concealed carry.

I was able to get my CT license with my Florida Non Resident, before my NYS was issued. Did this Aug 2010.

You have to be worried about breaking the law only if the state bans possession (as opposed to open or concealed carry) without a license or permit. I am not sure but as far as I know CT does not require a license to possess. I think there are about four states (NY and NJ come to mind) that ban possession of a handgun without a license or permit. FOPA has largely become irrelevant for most of the country in the past few years.
