Read and provide Section 20-29 to the Bridgeport Police Department and ask them when they sent your fingerprints to the Connecticut State Bureau of Identification as required by law.
When you go to Bridgeport P.D. demand to speak to the Commanding Officer in charge of the Pistol Permit unit and NO ONE ELSE.
Be polite but firm in your desire to obtain the fact regarding your application.
If they refuse to provide the informaiton and it's been more than 5 business days since you submitted your applicaiton and fingerprints, IMMEDIATELY FILE AN APPEAL with the Board of Firearms Permit Examiners.
Your reason for the appeal is based on violations of seciton 29-29.
Good Luck and keep us informed.
