Quickest permit turnaround time?

Recommended Posts

Just out of curiosity, what NJ town/city is typically the quickest to turnaround handgun permits?

 

I am in Robbinsville (Mercer Co.) and ever since I got into this hobby back in 2011, I have got 6 permits. All of them took NO LONGER than 13 days for me to get the permit

in my hand. I currently have another application in yesterday and I suspect it will take the same amount of time. For the 2 permits I got late last summer, the Dectective

called my 2 references the next morning, hard to beat that, I would think.

 

We do, however, have a new acting Chief (a female, first in Mercer Co.), so it will be interesting to see if the process changes are not.

Did a private sale with someone that lives in Union Beach, NJ and he said 4-5 days he got his permit.  My town however takes 6-8 weeks.

Paul:

 

Is it illegal to issue in less than 7 days from date of application, or just illegal to use it in less than 7 days from date of application?

 

Adios,

 

Pizza Bob<------too lazy to look up the statute

You're right Bob. No one can acquire a handgun within 7 days of application. But you know what happens when someone gets their permit. The ink isn't even dry and they are at the store buying. They could unknowingly break the law.

 

No handgun shall be delivered to any person unless such person possesses and exhibits a valid permit to purchase a firearm and at least seven days have elapsed since the date of application for the permit

I grew up in Vernon, Sussex County and I remember getting my first P2P when I turned 21, the complete process was done in 3 weeks, and each additional P2P I got were all right around 2 weeks. 

 

Flash forward 30 years or so and I am consistently waiting 5 months through the NJSP.  Sorry had to vent!

As pointed out previously - you can't use it until 7 days from date of application

    • Medal rounds for the mixed-team Air Rifle and Air Pistol events were held today.   This is a new event in this Olympic cycle, with each mixed team composed of one male and one female shooter from their respective national team in each discipline. Mixed Team 10 meter Air Rifle Gold:  China Silver:  USA Bronze: Russia*   Mixed Team 10 meter Air Pistol Gold:  China Silver: Russia* Bronze: Ukraine   *Russia and many of their top athletes are currently serving out a multi-year ban from international competition, as a result of being busted for state-sponsored doping violations on a massive scale.  However, many of their athletes are still being allowed to compete as the 'Russian Olympic Committee' (ROC) team, flying Russian colors but not the actual flag.   I'll still refer to them as Russia here. Russia making a mockery of their Olympics ban
    • Nope.  They just left it at my door.  Was USPS - has USPS stickers all over it, not Fedex.
    • Really? Mine was FedEx all the way. I assumed the signature/age requirement was because of the value. It's not a firearm and there's no serial number. Did you have to sign?
