Process Timeline

Postby Samppson » Wed Feb 24, 2016 8:52 am

Hi,

My wife and I turned in our permits 3 weeks ago, and a few days ago she got a letter in the mail stating her fingerprints were unclear. They were done at Danielson State Police with the digital machine.

I did not receive a letter, so I am hoping mine worked ok. My question is, at this point, once the town receives the OK on the background check, what is the next step that happens? Is it just my town approving my app or do they need to wait on anything else? Im hoping this means I am close to the end!

Thank you!

Once the town is done you'll get the town permit you have to submit it into the dept. of public Saftey then you'll get a letter saying to go down for your picture , plan on being there a while the last time I was there it took a couple of hours then your good to go ,
This is from my experience it was a while back when I got mine but from what I understand not much has changed las far as your wife don't get discurraged my wife had to go back twice but she stuck through it now it's a done deal
Good luck !

Oh, I was under the impression when I got a call from my town manager, I could go pick up my temporary pistol permit, then from that, I could go immediately to Middletown or Montville State police for my actual picture/pistol permit. I havent heard of the Department of Pub. Safety thing?

Once you get your town permit you can take this to state police same day to obtain your state permit. You will have to bring birth certificate or passport with you.

Oh ok, awesome. I called the townhall last night and got a rude reply saying "If you didn't get a call from us, then we haven't heard back, it usually takes 6-8 weeks"

I really don't think the Liberals in my town hall have any respect for the second amendment. This process has become ridiculous, how can essentially a background check take 6-8 weeks lol...

Hopefully my town smartens up and votes them out come election season. Not holding my breath though.

Most towns normally won't return the temporary permit till after 8 weeks. This is a way to discourage people from applying. The state one is instant once the local is in hand.

So you are saying there is a chance my approved permit is at the townhall and they are just going to wait until 8 weeks?

Yes. The background check is back within 5 days from the FBI.
