      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.

      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
