I think the State is part of the problem. I sent my son's paperwork in right after Labor Day. He was hoping to get his temp permit timed so he could go to the State and get his regular permit when he was home on leave this week or next.

As of Jan 2 his temp permit still hadn't arrived. We went to the Police Station in town. The office manager pulled his file and said "hmm, that is weird we never heard back. Let me call them." I saw the file it was empty save for a copy of his application. She called him back within an hour and said "it is all set. I will type up the temporary permit and get the Selectman to sign it later today. I will call when it is ready". The next morning Jan 3rd she called and we picked it up.

Since we are a resident trooper town I think the State "forgets" to notify the local trooper's office. The same thing happened to my wife and I 5 years ago.

Sounds like they don't have a process that include follow-up.  Not sure I'd blame the state for that.

Avon here, 16 weeks, no permit. Town says they are waiting on the criminal history from the State for the FBI.

Me and my wife waited 21 and 20 weeks in west haven it's a pain in the butt. Honestly 8 weeks and 1 day you should be filing your appeals. Telling everyone else from West haven to do so.

I dropped my complete application in Ansonia 12/7, as of   2/14 the officer says likely 12 weeks due to CT delays holidays, vacations, furloughs etc. Will wait til Monday to file my appeal.
