How difficult is it to obtain a non resident Connecticut LTC? Does it help in any way to have my MA LTC which I do? Trying to find out the process but can only find the process for resident LTC. Thanks.

Call them and ask. I had to take a trip down to Middletown, CT 4 years ago. I think the fees have gone up since then. They used to mail you the packet.

The process should be fairly straightforward. A permit to carry from another state is required as a pre-req for obtaining a Connecticut permit to carry as a non-resident. It will be necessary to present an acceptable safety certificate. The most common course is NRA Basic Pistol Shooting (LTC-002). The NRA certificate is sufficient. There are also a couple of questions about your instructor on the 799C form as well.

Be sure to be honest when filling out the application.

It is possible for an applicant to be denied (or a permit holder to be revoked) for suitability reasons. State denials for suitability are pretty uncommon. There is an administrative appeals process for denials/revocations. (IF you would like to see what those hearings look like you can watch meetings/hearings of the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners (BFPE) on CT-N.

It is also important to note that Connecticut does have a list of prohibitive misdemeanors as well.

The best thing to do is call and get the application. The signatures need to be notarized.

I applied in person down in Middletown last year. They quoted a 4 month turn around and that’s what it took.

The staff there is terrific and very helpful.

There are 3,457 threads on this in the Connecticut laws forum. ( channeling JACK) :p

FWIW:
They accepted my NRA Basic Marksmanship Training Program Pistol Shooting from 1984.

Four separate checks were required for:
$15 fee to be fingerprinted.
$70 application fee
$75 CT fingerprint processing fee
$12 FBI fingerprint processing fee

You can save the $15.00 fingerprint fee if your local PD will do the prints.

I got mine last year.

I submitted my packed, and it arrived in CT State Police Feb 8. Haven’t heard a word yet. Although there is a pandemic going on but no idea if they’re still processing
