I just received an application for a non-resident permit and the $35.00 fee was crossed out and in place was written $70.00. I am not sure if this is just for non-resident permits or if it covers resident permits as well.
 

They are doubling the rates...resident and non-resident...as of Oct 1, 2009.

I'm rushing to get mine into the mail...hoping to get the prints done on monday and in mail by tuesday...
 
I'm hoping so.

Other states that have raised their rates have accepted everything postmarked by the effective date.
 
Doh! They must have noticed the number of applicants they were getting and decided to make more money. Ah well. At least it's not like the NH $20 becomes $100 raise.
 
Dang it....I may have missed my window!!! I've got everything filled out and notarized...but PA State Police in my area do evening fingerprinting Monday and Thursday and i couldnt make it tonight.....:fie:

The website of the local PD where i work says they do fingerprinting for township residents only...what kinda crap is that? :angry:

ETA: I spoke with a local cop that i know thru work...he said to go to the station and if they give me a problem with it he'll come and do it himself! Nice...i may get it in on time yet...

ETA2: {grumble grumble} I get to the PD after 5. The office cop said to go to was locked. I called his cell and got voice mail. Wait for his call back for 45 minutes...he didnt call...

I did see a sign on bulletin board stating Public printing is done Tue & Wed 10a-2p ONLY. Why offer a service and then only do it certain hours like that???
 
Well, they cashed my 35 dollar check last week and my fingerprint check today. I mailed the application on 9/28. Hopefully I will be seeing a new permit soon!
 
I finally manged to get my prints done yesterday....pisser of it is...I dont see ANYWHERE on the paperwork that said prints had to be done by law enforcement! I also have the apps for FL and VA and they both specifically say "must be done by law enforcement"...so i just assumed CT had to also

So now i just need to get another $35 money order....and drop it in mail...:mad:
 
WHOA!!! Wait a minute!!!

I was just looking to see if they changed the fee amount on line...and i saw this on the DPS-799

Completed State of CT and Federal fingerprint card with $50.00 fee and $19.25 fee payable to DPS for criminal history background checks;

Now there is a 2nd fee associated with the fingerprints???? Where'd the extra 50 charge come from???

Its not on my application that i just mailed out...i put the extra 35 for the 35 to 70 increase but not 50...

They better not send it back to me....:mad:

They always had two fees as I remember cutting two cheques for my permit. Obviously they made it more confusing.
 
Sorry...i didnt paste it all:

Completed State of CT and Federal fingerprint card with $50.00 fee and $19.25 fee payable to DPS for criminal history background checks;
�� Firearms Safety & Use Course Certificate;
�� $70.00 payable to DPS;
�� Completed Application for State Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers form (DPS-46-C);

There are 3 fees now....

So what was $35 + $19.25 = $44.25....is now $50 + $19.25 + $70 = $139.25application
 
That 50 is new. I sent mine in before the deadline, and only included a 35.00 check and the 19.25 check. The paperwork that CT send said nothing of a 50.00 check and they cashed both of my checks.
 
I just looked at an extra ct application I had, the 7/09 revision.
There are 2 fees- 19.25 and 35.00

The new 10/09 revision has 3
19.25, 50.00, and 70.00

They doubled the application fee and added a 50.00 fingerprint fee.

You get your permit yet? I think they cashed my DPS check first.
