Plainville, newbie here
I moved back to my hometown of Bethel about a year and a half ago, after living in SF for 4 years and NYC for 13 years.
Free from the restrictive gun laws of CA and NY, I've been getting into shooting. Got my CCW and a S&W M36, more on the way. Joined the local indoor range in Ridgefield. Trying to get my wife and friends hooked on the bug, too.
wallingford / north haven here. occasionally I stay up in new britian. looking for someplace to shoot, blue trail range is currently shut down by the DEP. they have quite a mess on their hands it looks like. where else can i shoot ?
also, anyone know the particulars of shooting on private property??

A CT Newbie here. Grew up in Niantic, currently live in Norwich and work in Uncasville. It seems that there are few ranges/gunshops nearby. Taking my Pistol Safety class on Sunday and applying for my permit on Monday.
Anyone been to hoffmans? Its good but they don't have thier range open yet.
Newington has quite a few used handguns,rifles and shotguns. I'll be going to Hoffmans with in the next week or so ,have something on layaway.
I just got my temporary permit yesterday and will pick up my 5 year on Monday. WOOHOOOOO.
Congrats. I see your in norwich, I'm in old saybrook. Do you know what your first gun will be?
I think I am leaning towards a Springfield XD45 or XDm-9. I haven't handled a lot of guns and Hoffman's wont let you touch one without a permit. I noticed that they rent pistols as well, but their range is not open. I need to get into a gun club or become a memeber of an indoor/outdoor range but there are few in SE Connecticut. I am no no big hurry, I want to make sure that the first one I get is one I will like. There will be plenty of time to get other pistols in the future.
Hello all... new guy from the New Haven area...
Hoffmans range is now open.....
Did you shoot there?
New to the board and also from CT, Colchester to be exact. Are there any outdoor shooting ranges here run by the state like back in Michigan?
Thanks Ashman, appreciate the reply. I am new to CT and new to guns. I am looking to get a handgun for personal defense and range shooting. How difficult is it to obtain a permit in CT? What steps have to be followed?
