As of 01 July, 2021 the State of Connecticut authorized any person through CT. Public Act #21-31 who is a minimum of 21 years of age and possesses a Valid State of Connecticut Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers (aka: Pistol Permit) the ability to purchase and carry upon their person a TASER or other “Electronic Defense Weapon” (i.e. Stun-Gun).
This new law however is very clear that the only individuals who possess a State Pistol Permit are allowed to do so. Therefore it is still NOT permissible to purchase or provide these devices to or for a third party such as a wife or daughter, etc. unless such recipient is in possession of a State Pistol Permit.
To accommodate our clients who have no interest in purchasing, owning or carrying a firearm, yet would still like the option of having a means of self-protection Grey Wolf Consulting is expanding our State of Connecticut Pistol Permit Class to those interested in obtaining their permit so that they may legally obtain this option for personal security.
Again, it is important to remember that this class is designed specifically for those who are seeking a permit to carry firearms, although once obtained there is no requirement to purchase a firearm and this permit may be used to purchase a taser or other electronic defense weapon.
Completion of this one-day course of instruction meets or exceeds the training and safety course requirements of the State of Connecticut for all pistol permit applicants.
This class teaches safe handling of handguns and other firearms and includes live fire with both revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. Grey Wolf Consulting instructors are all certified through the NRA or other certifying agencies with extensive firearms training and real life experience.
Upon successful completion of this course, participants will receive a certificate or letter of completion, which may be used to apply for a pistol permit within the State of Connecticut, Florida, and several other States.
State of Connecticut Specific Applicant Information:
Under State of Connecticut Law, applicants for a permit to carry a handgun (Pistol Permit) are required to perform the following steps:
1. Complete an approved firearms safety class (Also known as a Pistol Permit class).
2. Obtain a pistol permit application packet from their local authorities (Typically the Police Dept.).
3. Complete the pistol permit application and assemble the required documentation (Typically a copy of identification, birth certificate, letters of reference, letter or certificate of completion from a firearms instructor) and fingerprints.
4. Submit the required documents and application to the local issuing authority.
5. Submit to a thorough background check is completed. (Under current law, the local authority has 8 weeks to approve or deny the application. If no response is heard after 8 weeks inquire as to the status)
6. If approved, the applicant will receive what is referred to as a “TEMPORARY STATE PISTOL PERMIT”. This temporary pistol permit will NOT allow the purchase of a firearm and more importantly, it maintains a expiration period of 60 days. Therefore it is critical that once this Temporary State Pistol Permit is obtained that the applicant immediately apply to the State of Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection in Middletown, CT. to obtain their full State Pistol Permit within this 60 day period to avoid the need to start the entire process over again from the beginning.
7. If for some reason the application is denied, the applicant may appeal such denial to the State of Connecticut Board of Permit Examiners for reconsideration. (Note: By regulation, the applicant has a maximum of 90 days from the date of denial to appeal the decision, afterwards appeal through this board will not be possible.)
