    Just a reminder to everyone:

    You now need a permit to purchase long guns in the State of Connecticut, regardless of if it is personal or FFL transfer.

    Meant to post this earlier, but didn't get around it it.

    Excuse a M*******'s ignorance, but until today were you able to buy long guns without any sort of license?

    That's correct kalash, up till now all you needed was either a pistol permit to take it home right away or a 14 day waiting period if you didn't have a pistol permit. I believe a hunting permit allowed you to take it home right away too but Im not positive on that one.

    And in free states (like NH) you need no license/permit to buy handguns or rifles. And if you are personally known to someone they can sell you either/both. No need for FFL!

    That applied only to dealer purchases.

    CT used to be no permits or licenses were required for a person to person sale of a long gun.

    If you didn't have a PP or Hunting Lic, you had a waiting period.

    There is still no license required to possess any firearm in CT.
