Nope, nada, zero. You can NOT legally carry or even TRANSPORT a handgun from your home/business if you don't have the full State Permit to Carry Pistols and Revolvers. I have a good ol' southern boy ex-coworker who is in jail right now because he thought he didn't need no stinkin' permit just to go shooting when he first moved up here. Turns out some undercover staties did a range spot check and he got popped with 6 Class D felonies. Three handguns and two charges for each. Illegal possession (outside of the home) and illegal transportation of a handgun (in the car). The law says REGARDLESS OF CONDITION when referring to a handgun. So, unloaded and locked in a box in the trunk doesn't cut it. Phucking yay for the wonderful state of CT.
