  1. Hi! Joined a little over a week ago and have exchanged messages with several of you. Glad to be here. PS I sneeze in even numbers only
  2. Hello! I got a shotgun as a gift from my relative who visited me in NJ. I need to take this to an FFL to do the proper transfer (Firearms Transaction Record/ATF Form 4473), right? I do have the NJ Firearms Purchaser ID and I understand the handgun permit I was recently issued is only good for intra-state (NJ) transactions.. Thanks for any pointers in advance.
  3. Thank you for your help, and to everybody else on this thread. Much appreciated
  4. Last update on this: I have gotten back my stock.
  5. Hello and thank you!
  6. I have! Are you nearby?! I'm relatively new to the community so I'm up for making new friends.
  7. lol sounds perfect- looking to update landscape lighting for my place.
  8. Well then.. stopping by soon.
  9. From what I hear, he is the owner of the range/store. I believe he is. I did try to be as courteous to him earlier when I told him that the stock was legal for my pump shotgun and he was receptive enough of my explanation. Tempted..but no rag within reach at the time.
  10. Thanks @njJoniGuy, appreciate it.
  11. Yet another update to this saga: Spoke with the FFL and will have their guys search the dumpster for the adjustable stock. According to the FFL there has been no pick up of the dumpster since I was last there due to the snow condition so he's certain the stock will be found by his staff.He apologized as well. Before I called him up, I checked with a local Mossberg dealer regarding the issue and they have also confirmed the same - although the guy did just say "adjustable stocks are OK for shotguns, not for any other rifle". Probably missed the illegality of collapsible stocks for semi-auto shotguns(needed additional back up source in case he won't believe me and this thread's valuable inputs). Thanks again everyone.
  12. I'll do my very best to impart with the FFL the wisdom I have gained from this thread. Really would like to think that he just thought the adjustable stock was illegal across all firearms in NJ..
  13. Hi everyone I'll reach out to the FFL tomorrow as they were closed today (heavy snow). I'll update this thread what happens. How he responds will probably give us an idea if he really didn't know it's legal or what..
  14. Hey everyone. I'm thankful for everybody's help here, even to the FFL who had done my transfer (even after me losing the adjustable stock). Didn't want to ruin anybody's business as there's also a possibility that he did not know..that's primarily the reason I just PM'd those who had asked in the thread. I would gladly help the next person who will most likely have the same issue/questions around our area. As it is, we only have 2 FFLs nearby - being new to firearms and firearm community in general, I would not like to be banned/be an outcast from stores/FFLs most accessible to me. Could it be partly my fault since I should have pressed that pump-action shottys can have adjustable stock in them? Makes one think... Now if an admin can either nuke this thread(or perhaps delete that reference to the FFL), that would be great (IMO).
  15. Wish I could do that.. he literally had me throw it in the dumpster before he will proceed with the paperwork. While he was pointing out how in big trouble I can be with the adjustable stock, he also show me other rifles he had that had the pinned stock and said that those were legal (in my mind, of course they were, those were ARs and really had to have pinned stock). Oh well....
  16. Yeah that's what I thought. I read this rule/regulation over and over again before we headed over to the FFL. Now that he had me remove the stock, doesn't it make my shotgun NOW illegal since it's most likely less than 26" overall? Would the Mossberg 500 Tactical be considered a semi-automatic shotgun though? It does say it has '6' for capacity. But I think I have to pump it every time I need to chamber a round/shell?
  17. While his assistant was processing NICS, and other paperwork, he was inspecting the shotgun. Thought it was a pinned stock at first until he discovered it is adjustable. Kind of disappointed seeing my cousin as I had to dispose of the adjustable stock in front of him (he lives in VA and they don't have this kind of rule over there).
  18. Thought I'd update this thread: FFL transfer went through OK, had to have a NICS checki, fill out ATF Form 4473 and a Certificate of Eligibility to complete the transfer. Thanks everybody who chimed in. However, the FFL told me to get rid of the adjustable stock that was attached to the shotgun (it's a Mossberg 500 tactical). He said he could not release the shotgun to me if I don't throw the adjustable stock in the dumpster. Is this accurate? I have read that the only time the adjustable stock was illegal was if it's attached to a semi-automatic shotgun (and nothing about a pump-action shotgun with an adjustable stock) AND it has one of the any other "evil" feature (e.g. a pistol grip) . Can someone confirm? PS FFL had also pointed out that the barrel tip of the Mossberg 500 Tactical may be illegal in NJ, but he isn't sure (I believe it's called a breaching barrel?) Sigh
  19. Much clearer. Thank you so much!!
  20. Makes sense. Thank you for your response. So in short: Incoming to FFL -> Gift-giver/seller ID (in states like Virginia where they don't have any firearms ID of sort, do they provide any other government ID?) Outgoing from FFL -> NJ FPIC, NICS, transfer fee, etc.
  21. Thanks @JohnnyB I just have a question from this link (NRA-ILA) : https://www.nraila.org/gun-laws/state-gun-laws/new-jersey/ It has this part: "Possession It is unlawful to knowingly possess any handgun, including any antique handgun, without first having obtained a Permit to Carry, and it is unlawful to knowingly possess any rifle or shotgun without having first obtained a Firearms Purchaser Identification Card (FID), however, no Permit to Carry or FID is required: To keep or carry any firearm about a person’s place of business, residence, premises, or other land owned or possessed by him; a place of business shall be deemed a fixed location." Even if I have the FID, and I have the firearm in my residence, would that be still considered a violation of this? I might be missing something here..
  22. I'm in the Ringwood/West Milford area in Passaic County. Looks like Thunder Mt. does charge $70 for the NICS + FFL transfers.. Thanks for sharing that Google Doc. Bookmarked!
  23. Thank you @W2MC, appreciate it.
