Applications are processed through the Selectmen's Office to reserve the Municipal Building Community Room and apply for a Temporary Pistol Permit. To reserve the Community Room, the applicant must be a Canterbury resident, 21 years of age and give a $100.00 deposit when submitting the application. The Community Room can only be booked two months before the event. Please check with the Selectmen's Office for availability of the room prior to planning your event.
Temporary pistol permits are processed through the Selectmen's Office. The applicant must be a Canterbury resident, 21 years of age and must complete an NRA certified course. The Pistol Permit Application and the State and FBI fingerprint cards can be picked up at the Selectmen's Office. The applicant must then be fingerprinted. The applicant brings back the completed fingerprint cards, copy of NRA certificate, the completed application and three checks: $16.50 to "Treasurer, State of CT", $50.00 to "Treasurer, State of CT" and $70.00 to the "Town of Canterbury" . This information is sent to the State Police. Historically, the background check takes two weeks to come back from the State and eight weeks to come back from the FBI.
