Bridgeport police say Clay Anthony McRay, 29, was arrested on Friday on Highland Avenue.
He was found carrying an illegal semi-automatic pistol and a magazine containing eight rounds of ammunition.
McRay was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit and illegal transfer of a firearm.
His bond was set at $150,000.
Authorities also conducted a search at a home on Highland Avenue and found two additional guns, three high-capacity magazines and 249 grams of Marijuana.
