      TIA
      Fill out application for Town/temp permit - $35 - Must get it Notarized
      Take 8 hour NRA Class - $85 and up
      Fingerprinted and Background Check - $20
      3 Letters of Reference
      Once everything is approved (about 4 weeks).......
      $35 for your 5 year CCW issued at State Police Department or Dept of Public Safety where photo is taken. Must get this within 60 days of the date on the town/temp or you have to re-apply (and re-pay).
      GOOD LUCK

      First one from Meriden I see. New to the forum.. I go to Hoffman's to window shop(Most of the staff doesn't seem to friendly with the younger crowd until I started looking at Kimbers), I'll be buying at Newington Gun Exchange(Great staff!), and I shoot at Wolf's Indoor Range(Also great staff!).

      Edit: To be fair to Hoffman's, the last time I was there the guy I talked to about Kimbers was a great help. If it had to do with me looking at a $1,300 gun, I do not know, but he was a cool guy. If I didn't have a relationship with NGX already, I'd have bought it from him. But, NGX has blown me away with their patience of me looking/asking questions while I waited for my permit. So, it will be a pleasure to have Tom help me loose a thousand dollars there.

      I live in the Berlin area and I prefer Newington Gun Exchange over Hoffmans. Those that work at Hoffman think thier poop don't smell. Not very helpful and in most cases rude. This is the reaon that NCX is always busy and most of the time helpful. Now if they only get some ammo in stock.

      Hi, I'm a new guy from Wolcott, formally from Orange. I haven gotten that far yet, I'm only taking the required course next week and then begin the waiting game. Until then window shopping and doing research.

      Hey there. Got my permit last month. It took about 3 months from the time I dropped off all the paperwork at my local PD till the phone call to pick up the temp permit. In the process of putting an AR-15 together now though.

      Oh well I was going to ask if it ever takes less than 8 weeks. I guess I'm looking at Jan. Should of got of my a@# earlier and done this back in the spring when I decided to get serious.
      Maybe, the feds will get bored looking at my dull lifes record and issue an ok quicker.

      It gets fustrating reading reviews and manuals and knowing I won't be able to do any thing untill 2010
