Warning!

IIRC, Federal law dictates that a handgun can only be purchased in your state of residence. You can pay for and have one shipped to your home FFL, but you can't walk out of a store with one.
 
Whoops! Forgot to mention that one!

Uh oh. That pesky FFL requirement is the kind of everyday detail that seems so ubiquitous that I forget to mention it. Thanks for the save, Whiskey.

I am new to the state, and I was told at the local gun shop that I could not even handle a pistol at the store without a permit. Coming from PA (no permit required for purchase, no fingerprints or class for permit, no waiting period at all), it was a bit.... off putting. If I had known, I would have bought one more handgun before changing my license. Oh, well....

A couple more worth mentioning....

I have visited K-5 Arms Exchange in Milford a few times. I bought some ammunition and accessories, but nothing too pricey. I found most of the staff helpful, and there seemed to be a bit of the "gun store social" scene that I remember from home (I'm from TN). They also have a fairly substantial amount of firearms on hand, especially handguns and tacticool rifles.

K-5 Arms Exchange
962 Boston Post Road (Rt 1)
Milford, CT 06460

Welcome to K-5 Arms Exchange,Inc.


I also have to mention a nice little place in North Branford: Connecticut Sporting Arms. It is a small place, and their on-hand stock is not very large, but they are extremely nice. They are also very competative in their pricing for special orders, which is a pleasant change of pace.

Connecticut Sporting Arms
1179 Foxon Road
North Branford, CT 06471

They have a good supply of both new and used guns, Hand guns, rifles and shotguns.
the prices seem to be good, but don't try and sell them a gun, they offer chicken feed.

J.T.'S Gun Shop
18 Mill Plain road
Danbury, CT.
203-792-8036

Small gun store, Mostly new stock, some used. More rifles and shot guns than pistols. I thought his prices were on the high side, but I can't keep prices in my head for long. and there are so many variations of style and sizes, it's hard to keep track.
