You will only be arrested/charged for breaking any of the numerous NJ statutes.

There is no statute that says you must keep a receipt for any firearm acquired. I have transferred guns to friends with no money changing hands at all - no receipt to retain.

So long as you complied with the law when you acquired the pistol you're fine. Assuming you acquired it while a NJ resident so you will have executed a Permit to Purchase a Pistol (and form of register). A copy of that will have been sent to your issuing PD as well as the State Police. You also got a copy, but there is no penalty for losing it.

Buying the pistol online is irrelevant as it would have been sent to an FFL in NJ and they would have done the background check  before transferring it to you.

What you can be arrested/charged with is possessing it in circumstances prohibited in the statutes. Where you obtained it is secondary.

I don't think the receipts are that important.  If you bought it here, they have all the details already.  If you brought it with you in a move, inherited it, or bought it face-to-face back when it didn't have to go through an FFL, it's still legal, though admittedly harder to prove (but that burden should be on the state).

(Edit - II neglected to read you bought it in TN... maybe disregard :D )
More than receipts, it might be more important to hold onto the exercised handgun permit. (Feel free to educate me if that's not the case!)

The eligibility paperwork for long guns would probably be good to have as well, though I imagine not as much as the pistol permits.

If it’s a legal firearm in NJ (ie: not an NFA item, not specifically named in the statute, and/or qualifies for the NJ AWB) and it was bought legally in the state you were living in prior to the move here, you can bring it to NJ with no paperwork required or needed.

If you wish, you can contact your local PD and do a VOLUNTARY registration to acquire NJ paperwork for each firearm as appropriate for the type (pistol vs rifle/shotgun), but again - that is voluntary and not compulsory.

Once here all NJ regulations apply to future purchases, transports, ammo restrictions, etc…

Do not make it harder than it has to be.

There is one situation where having receipts for handgun transfers could save you grief:

If you acquired handgun(s) in NJ, those handguns are registered with NJSP through the transfer process.

If you continue to live in NJ, but sell one or more handguns outside of NJ, then it would be prudent to keep records of those sales.

If you are ever subject to firearm confiscation (say, due to domestic violence or red flag order), the police are going to come to your door with a list of a handgun(s) for you to surrender.  If you do not surrender every handgun on that list, or provide evidence as to why the handgun is no longer in your possession, then you can expect a search warrant to get executed.

    • This market makes no sense, even before the recent volatility. Up is down, left is right, black is white, dogs are cats. I follow the market and the business news every day, and it's totally nuts. It makes my head hurt. Since there apparently isn't going to be any additional "injections" by Uncle Sugar, which kept the market propped up the past two years, the sugar high has burned off.... you know what happens after that....
    • This is a brand new, never used or installed set of high-quality  Wood AK stocks for Milled receivers finished in Ishmash Red. It is not refinished wood.  In addition to 7.62  it will also fit milled receivers for 5.56AK.  It is not designed for stamped receivers. It comes with new screws that you will use, if you are upgrading for a polymer-type stock set, do not use those screws.  It is fabricated to the look of  Soviet classic wood furniture circa 1960's and designed to fit milled receivers. It will fit older as well as new milled receivers, for example,  it will fit any Arsenal Style Milled receiver. It is possible that very minor fitting with a file may be required depending on your receiver. Note: Finish on all stock pieces absolutely matches. Due to lighting and camera angle it may not appear so in every picture, but they match. Free Ship. $375 First I will take it and also PM me wins Zelle, Money Order of Check Steve
    • Things could get fugly soon.  Especially if Russia decides to have a "minor incursion" into Ukraine sometime soon. Fasten your seat belts.  We may be in for some turbulence ahead.
    • Defense Distributed at it again. You have another opportunity to build your own. Enter the Ghost Gunner 3 The Ghost Gunner 3 is a 3 Axis CNC machine that can take a metal block and create a lower receiver in a relatively short period. You can then assemble that lower into a completed firearm without it being registered.  Since the only part needed to create these homemade firearms is a block of metal (pictured below), it would be entirely impossible for the ATF to regulate these without an act of congress.  While the anti-gun politicians pat themselves on the back for "stopping the proliferation of privately made firearms," Defense Distributed was hard at work crafting a tool that empowers citizens to expand their 2nd amendment rights and makes regulation irrelevant.  I was ecstatic to see the Ghost Gunner 3 here at SHOT Show in Las Vegas this week, and I'm excited to see what Defense Distributed does next.  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/impossible-regulate-ghost-gunner-introduces-new-0-receiver
    • Tech stocks had their worst week since March 2020, when the country completely shut down. The DOW didn't have a good week either. Wonder if Powell is going to throw them a lifeline? ....."At Friday’s close, the Nasdaq was down 7.6% for the week, its biggest decline since March 2020, when global markets sank on Covid-19 concerns. It’s also the fourth straight weekly drop for the tech-heavy index, the longest losing streak since a similar stretch last April and May. For the year, the Nasdaq is down 12%, losing to the S&P 500, which has dropped 7.7%, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which has fallen 5.7%. In 2021, the Nasdaq lagged the S&P for the first time since 2016. https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/21/peloton-plunge-netflix-miss-send-nasdaq-to-worst-week-since-march-2020.html
