Getting a Pistol Permit with a Guard Card Question


Jul 5, 2017
Bristol, CT
I am turning 21 in less than a month and plan to get my pistol permit. I would like to start working as an armed guard soon. I notice Pistol Permits and Guard Cards are similar in the requirements to get them such as Fingerprints and Background Checks. My question is: Will it be easier and faster for me to get my Pistol Permit while already having my CT Guard Card?
