    Nutmeggers!

    Hey.
    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.

    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.

    I headeed up to Hoffmans a couple of weekends ago. Nice place. I have yet to get my permit, so it was strictly WINDOW shopping. No hands on stuff yet. I submitted the application 3 weeks ago, I figure another 3 weeks and I should be good to go. Once I am ready, they will be my first stop. Cabellas has a nice selection too. I also heard that Newington Gun Exchange has a nice shop, although I did not check it out.

    I didn't realize the State Police Clerks had today off, so 5 year is delayed until later this week.

    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.

    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?

    TIA
