moving to nj from out of state

Recommended Posts

Also, you don't need to register anything you bring into NJ.  There is a form for voluntary registration, but it's just that; voluntary.

 

Edit:  at least I think that is still the case, I know our governor gopher was hoping to change that.

With a valid (address matches your D/L) FID card, you are able to carry unloaded rifles and shotguns with you at all times except in specially prohibited places (like courthouses, schools, etc)

Without that valid FID, you can only transport unloaded firearms (rifles, shotguns, handguns and "others") directly between home and the range (and place of purchase and FFLs, but only for repair)

When you arrive in our G-dforsaken state, put in for a change of address on your old FID. All the info to do that, except for your new municipal code, is available at NJSP.org

Unless your new Chief is an a$$hole, you should not need to be re-fingerprinted.

Whenever you change address your FID becomes invalid 30 days later.

Applying for a new FID, or a replacement because you moved, it was lost or destroyed is the same process nomatter the circumstances.

The only difference is the first time you need to be fingerprinted for the background check. For subsequent applications the fingerprinting is unnecessary unless your previous FID was obtained before they started doing the fingerprints electronically. However, in some towns police chief is anti 2A and makes people get fingerprinted again just to make the process harder and more expensive to dissuade people from applying.

My most recent NICS (2 weeks ago) came back the next business day. (Sundays excluded)

Same here.  The "I" in NICS is supposed to stand for "instant."  The next business day meant another 40 min. drive each way (so 1:20 total round trip) to my LGS to pick up my purchase. And as serfs in NJ, we are conditioned to think that one day is not too bad, when it sometimes takes a week or two.

i hear your nics checks in NJ  are 6 months?...over here in rural TN where we only have a gas station and a deer stand,,, nics checks are 5 minutes...not sure how that works..lol

I've never heard of NICS being more than several days, 2-3 years ago it would be anywhere from 5 min to an hour. Getting a new/updated FID and/or new Permit to Purchase a Handgun can easily take 6 months, depending on the issuing agency based on where you live. I've waited over 6 months before, the last two batches have been under two weeks. Switching to electronic vs paper has speed it up for me. I go through NJSP since I do not have a local PD. Towns that do not put the manpower into them will still take 6 months or longer. 

I don't know you're reasoning for coming back to NJ, based on another thread you started it sounds like for family? If possible, have you thought about Pa instead? Not only will you keep your 2A Rights, you'll also keep a lot more of your money. NJ Property (and other) taxes are absurdly high.

    • I used to fly out of Newark with some regularity with handguns, but it's been at least 10 years.   I'd get there plenty early, and bring with me copies of the airline policy on checking guns, and the Federal law that backed up the airline policy...because occasionally you'd get a ticket agent who was convinced that it couldn't possibly be legal, and you need to be able to convince them that they need to check with a supervisor instead of just telling you 'no'.   But usually it was straightforward, at least back then. Assuming they still use the orange 'Firearm' tags that you sign certifying the gun is unloaded, etc, those tags go INSIDE the suitcase.  Many years ago they had to go on the outside, which was like a big fluorescent 'Steal Me' sign on your suitcase.   That policy changed to inside-the bag quite a while ago, but you don't want the one agent who didn't get the memo to put it on the outside of your bag. I wonder if shipping the air pistol is an option?  NJ would probably consider it illegal, as they pretend it's a real gun, but wherever you are going almost certainly knows better...and the Feds don't care.   But that might leave you with the problem of getting it back into NJ, if that is your intent.  If it's a one-way trip for the air pistol and if you aren't too far from PA, I'd consider driving across the border and mailing the gun, especially if you can use a non-NJ address for the return address. It IS legal to ship long guns to yourself...not sure about handguns.  USPS and UPS both allowed it, though again the counter clerk will be convinced you can't do it, and someone is going to have to look up the law for them.   Shipping to yourself, if you are physically present from where it is sent, and then are physically present to receive, is legal because it is NOT a transfer.
    • When I lived in NJ, I flew out of Philly many times with a rifle/handgun. No issues at all.    Follow the advice on the airline website. You’ll need a hard sided, lockable case. Do NOT use TSA locks.    You will be required to open your case and display the weapon is clear.  You will fill out a form, which will be locked inside the case.  TSA may or may not desire to inspect the case and/or the bag the case is inside. That’s up to them. 
    • I have to fly out of Newark to Denver on United later in the month with a Handgun.  Hard to get solid advice and impossible to get through to United customer service.  It is actually an air pistol.  I was advised to fly out of Philly, it is a non issue there, but I had to book out of Newark.  I was told to ask someone who has done it before and value their advise.  I figured this would be the best place to start.  Thanks for any help.
