2. CT is $140 plus the pistol permit course

The process is as follows:
1 Pick up the paperwork from the town police
2 Take the pistol permit course, cost varies from instructor to instructor but is usually about $100
3 Return to the town police with the completed form, proof you passed the course. The town police will fingerprint you and you pay $70 to the town. Legally the town is required to either deny you or issue a town permit, which is only good for the town you reside in. Some towns with anti-gun police chiefs will stall past the 8 weeks. The appeal process in these cases is to go the Board of Permit Examiners (BPE), but since their current backlog is about 18 months, the permit applicant is SOL.
4 One takes their town permit to the state police and gives them $70 for the state permit, renewal is every 5 years and costs $70; There is no requirement to keep a town permit current, failure to renew on time means you start the entire process all over again.

So about $240
