This is not true. They have 5 days and 1 week.

Please do not spread this misinformation.

Rich B's cite quote: http://ctcarry.com/permits/timeline

Website's quote in header: The entire process is required to take no more than 8 weeks by statute. unquote

Website's quote of the state's statute:
quote
Sec. 29-28a. Application for permit.
Notice of decision to applicant. (b) The local authority shall, not later than eight weeks after a sufficient application for a temporary state permit has been made, inform the applicant that such applicant's request for a temporary state permit has been approved or denied.

The commissioner shall, not later than eight weeks after receiving an application indicating approval from the local authority, inform the applicant in writing that the applicant's application for a state permit has been approved or denied....unquote

My information is correct as posted.

Your link would seem to contradict your statement:
The Connecticut General Statutes prescribe a rather strict timeline for the pistol permit process. This timeline is dictated by and . The deadlines described in these statutes give your local issuing authority "5 days" from the date you submit your application with fingerprints until they must submit your fingerprints to the State Police Bureau of Identification (SPBI). Once your FBI report is received back from the SPBI, the local issuing authority has "one week" to issue an approval or denial.


The entire process is required to take no more than 8 weeks by statute.

The OP has the choice to listen to people from out of state that do not seem to grasp the permit process in Connecticut, or they can listen to the people who actually are working to fix the permit process and enforce the statutes on the local issuing authorities.

Reading a statute hardly makes someone an expert.

Please explain, rather than be sarcastic.

Submitting the statute so that other's not qualified as "expert" in CT may read it.

Sec. 29-28a. Application for permit.
Notice of decision to applicant. (a) Requests for temporary state permits under section 29-28 shall be submitted to the chief of police, or, where there is no chief of police, to the warden of the borough or the first selectman of the town, as the case may be, on application forms prescribed by the Commissioner of Emergency Services and Public Protection. Upon written request by any person for a temporary state permit not on a prescribed application form, or upon request by any person for such application form, the local authority shall supply such forms. When any such request is made in person at the office of the local authority, the local authority shall supply such application form immediately. When any such request is made in any other manner, the local authority shall supply such application form not later than one week after receiving such request. If such application form is not supplied within the time limits required by this section, the request therefor shall constitute a sufficient application. If any local authority fails to supply an application form upon the request of any person, such person may request an application form from the Commissioner of Emergency Services and Public Protection or any barracks of the Division of State Police, and the time limits and procedures set forth in this section for handling requests for such forms shall be applicable.


(b) The local authority shall, not later than eight weeks after a sufficient application for a temporary state permit has been made, inform the applicant that such applicant’s request for a temporary state permit has been approved or denied. The local authority shall forward a copy of the application indicating approval or denial of the temporary state permit to the Commissioner of Emergency Services and Public Protection. If the local authority has denied the application for a temporary state permit, no state permit may be issued. The commissioner shall, not later than eight weeks after receiving an application indicating approval from the local authority, inform the applicant in writing that the applicant’s application for a state permit has been approved or denied, or that the results of the national criminal history records check have not been received. If grounds for denial become known after a temporary state permit has been obtained, the temporary state permit shall be immediately revoked pursuant to section 29-32.
