As I mentioned in my intro thread, I have been living outside of NJ for several years, and I have a question about ID cards and permits and whatever else NJ wants to heap on top of me as it pertains to C&R firearms.
For a time I did have an 03 FFL (not while in NJ). It expired and I decided not to renew it. With an 03 FFL, you can act as your own FFL for firearms that meet the curio and relic guidelines (basically anything older than 50 years, or had some sort of historical significance, and so on). So things can be shipped directly to you, no background checks, and all that like you were a regular dealer.
My question is if I get another 03 FFL while in NJ, can I have a curio and relic firearm shipped to me directly in NJ as I would normally, or does NJ still impose further licencing, ID, and permit requirements on me? For example, as far as I can tell, a Dragunov meets all the requirements for "not an 'assault weapon'" in NJ, and it is classified as a C&R weapon by the ATF. Is NJ still going to require me to do anything more than the feds want in order for me to get that shipped to me?
Is there a difference between rifles and handguns here? For example, could I acquire a Nagant revolver or a Tokarov pistol this way?
