Applied through NJ fars system middle February 2020. Gloucester township 1st time fid and 2 p2p.

References done next day.

February 23rd email received background check completed. Already had finger prints week prior.

 

June 14th. - call from GLO twp. - everything looks good. Had record expunged but due to virus it's still showing.

Said needed letter from doctor. Since I had saw a shrink. If not in by 2 weeks. Goes back in pile for another 2 months.

Letter dropped off last Monday. He said 250 permit applications submitted over weekend!!!

Stated after he closes app. Should be another 2.5 weeks.

 

Is that normal? 2.5 weeks after a 4 months wait just to type up cards???

At this point I'm so sick of waiting and for no good reason fear something could go wrong, lol

I even joined NJ2AS just in case there was any issues and they are doing good for NJ 2nd amendment

That being said , should I contact my local gun shop to place and pay for my Sig and let it sit in the safe till I get my permit?

 

Thanks! Also my 1st post to forum.

I'm at 126 days in GT.

They are just really really really understaffed compared to the level of applications and have been since before Christmas 2019 from what I gather. I have sympathy for the officer I have been dealing with. He's been pleasant and nothing in our discussions leads me to belive it's out of malice.

Not enough manpower is crap. If it were a priority to the PD follow the law, then the PD would find a way to get it done. Each application takes very little actual effort. Everything or almost everything is computerized and the searches for information takes seconds at most. It may not be malice but there is no reason that an application should take even 1 full day.  The police were getting it done in under 30 days when the stupid FPID process was started many years ago.  The 30 days limit was instituted because everything was manual and done through the mail.

His name tony? He is really really nice. He told me 2 more weeks since I been waiting so long. I'm at about 120 to 125 days also. If you already spoke to him. Looks like we will both be about the same time.

 

Cheers

They asked me to send the SP-066 form, even I live in NJ (same county) for 20 years (8 years at the current address). So I filled the part One, made my wife to sign as a witness, and mailed it out. Does it have to go through all the steps? Looks like Part Two requires the signatures from County Adjusted and a Doctor.
First of all why did they want it?

Sounds like your initial application was not done on the FARS system electronically. When i submitted my app, that was a check box for the sp-066. Your signing off for them to be able to do a mental health record search. The part you mentioned about  a doctor's signature. that would only be if they found something during their search. Or like me, i was honest as one should be and said I went to a shrink one time. in this day and age that should be a plus one is able to be intelligent enough to talk to someone after a major life event. I was having a heard time after my mother passed away. In any case, that is all that form is. If they do not find anything there is no need for those other signatures.

I did it on the FARS electronically. When I called them to add another P2P permit to the application, they told me that I don't have the SP66 in file and asked me to submit it together with the payment. So I did. Didn't give my PD a single visit as of today.
