    Looking for updates on this post (it's currently 8/30/18)-considering getting my CT non-resident permit (I live in NY with Full carry).
    Anything specific to be aware of in my wording or reason for requesting permit?
    Also, there is very little info on what training courses satisfy their requirements.
    I have taken 2 classes (Handgun 102 & 103) @ Sig Sauer in NH; instructors are NRA certified.
