    Question Temporary Move Question

    I am thinking of going to Puerto Rico for 3 or 4 months I have a house there, I have Connecticut permit, I will be leaving my guns here in the Bolted floor safe that they are in now, and locked up in my house here, do I hve to change my permit to non resident and inform of the temporary move? or do I have to only if it is permanent?

    Lots of people maintain two residences. I don't see why you would have to inform anyone at the DPS. Leaving behind a furnished home with a stocked gun safe is not what someone does when moving. You're just on "vacation".

    I agree.

    Also, if the safe is bolted and such it proves you are safety minded.

    I couldn't see you having a problem based on what I've heard so far observing the Board Firearm Permit Examiners hearings.

    I have never seen a person drink tea from a coke bottle while standing on their head, that doesn't mean it is illegal.

    You would have to be gone for more than 6 months before you could declare yourself a resident of a second state unless you planed not to come back at all.

    I would not be gone more than six months, I do own both houses, well at least the one in Puerto Rico, the one here the Bank still owns, and the safe is bolted to the floor / Cement Floor and only I have the combination, my wife does not even have it for safety reasons of course.

    You're just going on an extended vacation or business trip IMO.
