    Ansonia should not be to bad. Waterbury, Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport are the towns which take the longest.

    You are lucky....enjoy your permit
    Issuing authorities can take as long as they want when processing permit applications; there is no penalty for violating the 8 week provision. All it means is that an applicant has a right to file a constructive denial claim after that time period.

    Waterbury fingerprinting scam?

As I did, and the Forensic Officer did them the old school way with ink this time around.

    Today is January 30, 2018. The people which wrote my reference letters were just called by the Waterbury PD for verification 2 weeks ago. Now I am awaiting for the next step to be completed. Not certain if the next step of the process consists of both the State Police and FBI or what. Although, hopefully soon I will receive my letter so I can go to Middletown and get my state permit.

    Waterbury, New Haven, Bridgeport, and Hartford take the longest to process these applications. My friends which live in other towns did not take long at all.

    Best regards,

    I submitted my paperwork to Waterbury 1 month ago and today I also got a letter stating my fingerprints need to be redone due to them not coming out good enough. I’m starting to think this is a tactic they use to delay the process for people obtaining a pistol permit. I was there for 15 minutes with the guy doing my fingerprints the first time. There is no way they didn’t come out good enough. He did each finger multiple times as well. Now I need to take more time off work to do the fingerprints because they only do them from 10-2pm. Very frustrating.

    Norwalk PD

    Submitted my permit application 11/27/17 to Norwalk PD. Fingerprints were received by SPBI 12/14/17 and background check was sent to Norwalk PD 2/15/18. I have called multiple times to check the status and all I get is "application is with Deputy Chief, we will call you when its finalized." I have started the Constructive Denial Appeal process, but will continue to call them and check routinely going forward.

    I was going to call tomorrow! I submitted my paperwork 2/9/2018, I was told it would take 12 weeks. But by law they have 8 weeks to deny me or send me the temp permit, Correct? April 5th will be 8 FULL weeks. Once April 5th hits, I should file an appeal? Or has Greenwich been pretty good?

    Applied in Prospect, December 1 2017. Prints rejected and redone three times, final time at State Police Barracks in Bethany, on December 27 2017. March 16 and nothing! I have called twice and get no real info. Glad to hear I am not alone! There is absolutely nothing in my past that should cause an issue, so getting really frustrated.

    Cool Local Permit Approved

    Came home from work this afternoon 3-21-2018, checked my mail, and guess what finally arrived!!!!! A letter from the Waterbury PD, informing me that that my temporary state permit to carry pistols or revolvers has been APPROVED as of February 9, 2018.

    State permit

    Will I need to fill out the Pistol Permit/Eligibility Certificate Application again as I did for the local permit and get it notarized, or can I just pick up my local permit and go to Middletown on Friday?

    In Ohio your prints are turned around in minutes if done electronically. Ink prints, a couple of weeks.

    City Of Waterbury

    I went to pick up temp permit today at the Waterbury PD. As was completing my tasks with the lady at the records office, another gentlemen came in looking to apply for his permit. The gentleman asked me how long it took. I informed 6 months. The lady informed the gentleman that he can get his finger prints done today. Although, since people submit one item at a time with the paper work and information needed, which one of the reasons it takes people longer to get their temp permits. The lady stated, they now wait until all of the paper work in completed and handed in to submit everything at once, so items are not scattered all over the place.

    9 1/2 Weeks

    It took less time to be approved for Foster care. I guess kids aren't as important as approving a pistol permit for someone that has never even gotten a parking ticket. Is there something wrong with that picture?

    Visited Orange PD last week. They have everything there except from the state. I hate this state! They aren't happy unless they are taxing you to death or torturing you slowlyyyyy and painfullyyyyy.

    Meanwhile, I'm going broke having to pay an instructor $100 hr so I can practice shooting my New Sig 229 Legion that I bought, (She's a beast)...which has to stay at the store until I get my permit. In a way, I'm glad to have an instructor ...I've learned a lot. That's a good thing.

    UPDATE: 4/11/18
    10 Weeks exactly..it's on the Chief's desk for signature so hopefully later today or tomorrow.

    UPDATE: 4/13/18 Finally signed by the Chief and in my hands. Monday off to get the permanent license.

    My brother just got his a few months ago. I think he said it took about 10 weeks. I think you should get yours very soon. It's like waiting for Santa..the wait is excruciating.
