Some towns have weird extra requirements, like letters from neighbors (or at least they used to). was talking to a guy who lives in Guilford: when he got his years and years ago (he's in his late 60s now), he had to talk to his neighbors. Ugh. Nope. I don't want anyone to know my business about anything.

Former Guilford resident here. GPD doesn’t do this anymore…or at least they didn’t talk to any of my neighbors when I got my permit back in 2016.

Thanks for the updated info! I learned this way back in 2008 and this guy had had his for ages before that.

Isn't that perhaps dangerous? Your telling people your house is currently unarmed bit that in the future it would be a great place to steel a gun from and as neighbors it would be easy to learn your schedule. They also wouldn't look out of place in the general area around your house/property.

Pro Tip: Yes, some towns have these additional requirements. However, they cannot deny you for not providing these items. They don’t tell you that, but failing to provide letters of reference is not a reason to disqualify an applicant under CT law.
