Hello from Livingston NJ

Recommended Posts

HI everyone .... been lurking for a while now, and decided to say hello. This is a great forum, and I've learned a lot, especially about NJ laws (which are very confusing to say the least). There are a great group of people here.


I'm just getting into shooting, and will be picking up my initial card and pistol permits tomorrow morning (finally got "the call" this afternoon). And yes, I will be putting my experiences into the "FID & PP Card Township Paperwork Requirements" and "NJ FID/PP Compliancy Project" threads.


As to why, well .... I've always been interested in firearms since I was a kid, and wanted them as an adult, but never quite got around to getting some and learning to shoot. Life seemed to get in the way (work, kids, etc.). After a long while, though, I wondered why I was waiting, especially after my younger sister (who lives in free america -- maine) got into target shooting with her fiancee. We all starting having long talks about their guns, and shooting in general, and I decided to take the plunge. So I took the basic NRA pistol class (thanks GunForHire) and have been reading lots of books (and this forum as well), applied for my permts, and here we are.


Looking forward to participating more in these forums as well.

A big welcome from another Livingstonite. Second what Jackruf said. Livingston has

been very good regarding paperwork. No complaints.

Give me a shout if I can be of any assistance.

Best regards

    • As I mentioned in another thread, we bought a condo in Florida a couple of years ago, and have started spending some time down here.  We have not become residents yet, but still are able to enjoy a taste of life in a free state with Covid sanity and everyday concealed carry. Yesterday I purchased the Zastava Arms ZPAP M70 for which I have been lusting.  Bought it online from Atlantic Firearms and had it shipped to a local dealer.  When I went over to pick it up, he asked me for my DL and Florida CCW permit (if I had one).  I filled out a 4473 and a few minutes later, he said, "You're all set."  Holy crap!  No waiting days for an "instant" background check requiring a return trip to the dealer.  In just minutes I was able to walk out with my new beauty.  While I was there, a fellow walked in and asked to look at a handgun.  He checked it out for a few minutes, then said, "OK, I'll take it."  Same deal for him:  DL, Florida CCW, 4473, and out the door in a few minutes with the gun.  I should note that with the ready availability of guns in Florida, contrary to the hysterical fears of legislators in states like New Jersey, not only do legal gun owners not run around shooting each other, one rarely (like, never) even sees a gun. All that aside, the weather here has been great, the people warm and welcoming.  On days when it's a little cooler, with temperatures in the mid-60's, when we can't sit by the pool or go to the beach, the weather is perfect for golf, pickle ball, running and working out, or just hanging out.  Unfortunately, we have to leave "The Matrix" next week to return to Jersey for six weeks in the middle of winter, for some weddings and other family events.  But we get to look forward to returning in mid-March for another 6-8 weeks.  If any of you are down this way, be sure to say hi!
