Due to the changes in Connecticut gun laws we are no longer able to rent firearms to anyone who does not have a valid Connecticut Pistol Permit or a valid Connecticut Long Gun Permit or a valid Connecticut Ammunition Certificate. In order to rent firearms you must be able to show you are competent and safe with a firearm.
If you do not have one of these documents and you wish to get a Connecticut Pistol Permit, which covers all needs, we offer the classes here at Shooters. Come in to inquire about the process and cost.
Out of State residents who have an UNRESTRICTED carry permit from their home State can apply for a Connecticut non-resident pistol permit and, in most cases, will receive it. Come into Shooters to discuss the process and cost.
Out of State residents who wish to rent but cannot or choose not to get a Connecticut pistol permit can apply for a Connecticut ammunition certificate by filling out an application and taking it the Special Licensing Unit, 1111 Country Club Rd., Middletown, CT. They will run an on-the-spot background check on you and, if you come back clean, will issue you the certificate then and there. The cost of the certificate is $35.00.
