Maybe little by little they are shifting gears. Believe me no one will be any more pleased than I if and when national reciprocity is adopted. Thanks to everyone for the feed back.
    I hope I am correct but I actually believe that from what I have read it is easier for a non res of Mass to get a permit then a resident. After all we will be in the state less time then you Mass residents....enough said

    Good news! I received my Connecticut non res permit today! As per my first post on this thread I sent it out 3/25. The permit states it was issued on 4/28 so with some time to get here that is a total of 39 days.
    Now I hope to hear from Mass for an interview for that state non res permit.
    I will do my research and double check but any of you Conn. CCP holders res and non please give me any tips and info so I stay on the correct side of the law when in the "nutmeg" state!
    Thanks all

    Hey Cap Gun, Dootman back at ya!
    Thank you for the update, and sorry to hear about the long wait you are having. I have done some research and I am inclined to totally agree with you that it is much easier for a non resident to obtain a permit in Ma than for a resident. I guess it is their idea of some type of reciprocity with out of state permits, and they have figured out a way to suck $100.00 a year out of people for the privilege. I do feel that you will eventually receive your Ma permit. I'm never in Ma, except for just passing through on I 495, so for me it would not be worth it. Along with my resident Maine license I hold non-resident licenses in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. This allows me to carry in 31 states, hopefully 32, when Iowa's new law goes into effect in January. Best of luck to you. Hope you visit Maine sometime.

    As mentioned in my above post CT only took around 31 days. My FL permit took 49 days total and that was with me screwing up and forgetting to sign one of the fingerprint cards and they mailed it back to me. Sent that back in 5/3 and received the permit 2 weeks later.

    FL states up to 90 days, so 49 days is great in my book. Hang in there Cap, I'm sure it's coming soon.

    I live in upstate NY and Monroe county now is around a one year wait. When I got mine in 2003 it was around 6 or 7 months..... so Mass doesn't seem that bad.

    I was at a class a few weeks ago and a Monroe County Sheriff stated that they are pretty backed up b/c 'everyone' now wants a permit b/c they're afraid if they don't do it now....

    FL permit adds 30+ states to my carry status. Enough now to drive most places without a hassle [still a few states to avoid].

    Just an update on the Mass non res permit: I called them to find out if my NRA course that was not given by an instructor certified by Mass. The person I talked to said they were a bit behind but if I needed anything else I would get a letter telling my what I needed and could then take care of it. Will get back when I hear from them.
