  1. For the people who come across this thread later on and during this pandemic. I finally found my gun. I ended up calling and emailing a bunch of the vendors suggested here, as well as others I found online. They're all telling me the same thing. 1. They don't have a lot of items they normally have in stock 2. They can't order it because they're already on order, it's whenever they can get a shipment 3. Suppliers are having delays shipping due to shortened hours, staff and inventory. The silver lining, there were a few other options I came across, which another new gun owner might not know about. On another thread someone suggested using this tool, which emails the vendors on the forum. I did this before calling all the other places. https://www.njgunforums.com/forum/index.php?/forms/2-handgun-price-request/ I also found the gun online at 2 locations: https://www.kygunco.com/ https://www.sportsmansguide.com/ Came across this site and it was pretty useful, but tough to navigate: https://gun.deals/search/apachesolr_search/320xc-9-bxr3-r2-10 Did some research and considered ordering online and shipping it to one of the FFL suggested. I almost did this before I got a notification that a vendor on here JT Custom Guns, replied to my request saying his warehouse has one. Jack seems to have good reviews and is reputable on this forum. The price he quoted was consistent with the costs I've seen online including transfer fees, so I called him up to put the order through, so far he's been really professional, responsive and informative. Definitely a tough time to get into this hobby, but on the positive side, I've probably done more research now than I normally would have. Definitely use the NJGF price request first and then start calling places.
  2. Just called up Jim Flynn and spoke to Nick. Unfortunately they don't have it in stock and said their stock on pretty much everything is pretty low right now, and getting anything in is tough now. Was really looking forward to trying them too based on all the good stuff everyone has to say about them.
  3. It kind of threw me when I googled him and it said it was a truck repair spot. I thought you guys were sending me somewhere to lose a kidney or something...
  4. Wow thanks for all the responses. I'm gonna check out a few of these recommendations and get emails out. Seems everything is by appointment only nowadays.
  5. 1. Application type (FID/permit w/ existing FID). FID and permits 2. Police Department where you applied. Bernards Twp 3. Name of the person you dealt with at the PD. Mostly done online, but had some email correspondence with an administrator. 4. Time taken to issue FID and/or permit. A little less than 2 months 5. Documents required by the PD (aside from the standard application and the mental health release form). Proof of employment, proof of address since I moved a little less than a year ago. 6. Notes - anything pertaining to the application process (unforeseen difficulties, chief of police calling your home, you hiring an attorney, etc.). None, it was pretty seamless, everything was done online, fingerprinting was by appointment and due to COVID-19, was basically empty once they opened it back up. Someone from the department did email me for additional documents to prove my residence and proof of address change through DMV.
  6. Hey guys, I'm new here. Found out about this forum from my brother and registered while I was waiting for my FID and permits (applied end of March). Just got the email yesterday that they're ready to be picked up. I didn't think it would be this quick, which is amazing in this environment, but the downside is I didn't have a chance to research as much as I would have liked. After doing some reading online and watching some videos, I'm leaning towards a Sig Sauer p320 xcompact as my first gun. What are your thoughts on this gun? They do seem to be out of stock everywhere online though. I'm going to try to give Heritage guild in Branchburg a call tomorrow, I've noticed they have guns on display at the store when I was there for archery, but I'm not sure about how they are as an FFL. Has anyone on here had any experiences dealing with them, or do you recommend some dealers in the area? This is so exciting.
