Residents can obtain a Pistol Permit Application at the Police Department Records Division office at 2108 Main Street Glastonbury or you can download the form here: Pistol Permit Application.
Completed application forms must be returned in person to the Police Department to be processed. Applicants paying applicable permit fees in cash must have exact change. Frequently asked questions concerning pistol permits can be found on the Connecticut Department of Public Safety website at www.ct.gov/dps.
Applicants will be fingerprinted for a criminal history check at the time they submit their application (Mon-Fri, 8am to 3:30 p.m.). An investigator will then be assigned to conduct a background check and a temporary pistol permit may be issued by the Chief of Police upon successful completion of the background check.
