Connecticut Pistol Permit Classes

Frequently Asked Questions

How flexible is your class schedule; are all the days and times set in stone?
Contact me. If your schedule conflicts with my normal class schedule, perhaps we could work something out.
How much does a CT Pistol Permit cost?
In addition to the cost of the course, you will need a check for $135 when applying for your permit. When the temporary permit arrives, your cost for the actual permit will be an additional $70.
How long is the CT Pistol Permit good for?
5 years
What guns do you use for classes?
  • .22 caliber Ruger Semi Automatic
  • .22 caliber Ruger revolver
  • 9mm Sig Sauer Semi Automatic
  • 9mm Smith & Wesson M&P Semi Automatic
What if I’ve never shot or even held a gun before?
Not a problem. People without experience can actually do better than those with some experience because there are no “bad habits” to break. Learning the correct way from the beginning has its advantages. My training methods are based on sound principles and proven techniques and not on a “my own way” approach.
What do I need to bring to class?
Just yourself, wearing comfortable clothing and flat casual shoes/sneakers. I supply hearing and eye protection, handguns, and ammo—and the skills to make you shoot safe & shoot well!
