New guy waiting on FID and Permit

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

My name is Frankie. I am new to firearms all around and I am excited to start my journey into the world of firearms. I am from Monmouth county and I am currently waiting on my FID and Permit so i can purchase my first handgun, the Glock 19. Here is my experience so far with the application process with the Middletown PD:

 

5/13- Filled out FID and Permit application

 

5/21- Got fingerprints done

 

5/23- References received and sent back letter to my PD

 

5/24- Went into PD and followed up with copy of my finger prints receipt becauseI wasn't sure if I had to bring that back. The women at the desk told me I did not have to however she took my papers and made a copy for their records.

 

6/7- Called the records department in Middletown PD and kindly asked for an update on my application. The women was very nice and more than happy to check my status. She told me that they had recieved all my paper work a couple days ago and that they are processing them at the moment. I am hopeful that they will be done soon. A couple of my buddies have told me that my PD is fairly quick so my fingers are crossed!!

Thats pretty good Frankie and welcome!  The Glock 19 is a great first firearm, I did mine the reverse and I actually have a few other pistols but am getting my first Glock (most likely a 19 Gen 4) within a week or two.

 

Your PD sounds pretty friendly and efficient, that is good to hear!  I dropped off my permit paperwork approximately 3-4 weeks ago so mine should be ready soon as well, as my town is also one of the more efficient ones.

If your township is gun owner friendly i would say you will have your FID & permits within a couple weeks from today. If they are not gun friendly it can be months. Ive seen horror stories on this forum of people waiting 6-8 months before getting theirs. 

 

I live in Bridgewater and when i went through the process it was 4 weeks from start to finish. 

 

Welcome, this hobby gets addicting and VERY expensive! Have fun and be safe.

Thank you I hope you have a quick turn around for your FID and PP as well! Where do you plan on purchasing your G19?

So far I've heard only positive things about my local PD so I hope you're right about a couple of weeks! Its crazy reading some of these stories on here about 6 and 8+ month wait times for FID and PP especially since its our right. I am looking forward to get shooting and spending my money at the range haha

Hi I'm new here also, I put all my paperwork in six weeks ago in Jackson. I called the them today and the phone prompt tells you to hang up if you are inquiring about firearms permits.

We will call you when they are ready

Hope your turn around is sooner than later man. If you don't hear back in a couple weeks I'd say maybe stop in and ask in person. Again I am new so I don't know for sure if that will help but its worth a shot! Good luck.

Thank you! Which range do you like to go to around here?

 

I'm a range slut, I go all over, although I guess RTSP counts as my "home" range. 

 

Lately I've been going the most to a private club outdoor range as a guest, but also recently went to Garden State Shooting Center in Lakewood for the first time and was impressed.

Good to know! I've been looking into the different ranges in my area. A couple close ones are Shore Shot, Heritage Guild and Guns Fore Hire. Either way its a bit of a drive for me but its not terrible.

 

Never heard of Garden State Shooting Center until now ill be sure to check them out thanks!

Welcome to the forum and firearm community. Great first choice for a pistol. Cant go wrong with a Glock 19. I have one.

Btw, I also live in Middletown. The PD is good to deal with. They are likely dealing with a large volume of applications so I recommend you be patient.

 

Regarding ranges, I am a member of Garden State Shooting Center in Lakewood. (Located about 2 minutes from SureShot.). Note that Heritage Guild in Rahway is a store but not a range. Their Easton, Pa location has a range but that is a much longer ride than Lakewood.

 

Regards, Art

Appreciate the info Art I will remain patient I am sure with such a big town there are probably many applications to go through.

 

I will definitely check out GSSC when I do purchase my firearm. Any suggestions on gun shops to buy a G19?

Welcome to tbe forumms. I'm sure you'll find plenty of friendly and helpful people here.

 

While I and almost everyone on this forum supports and encourages firearm safety the NJ permit scheme would sicken the men who wrote the 2nd Amendment. Could you imagine what the publics reaction would be if the government had half the requirements to exercise the right to vote as they do to purchase a firearm?

Thanks! Honestly I couldn't imagine it really is crazy that they get away with this and I know we don't have it the worst (which shocks me) but it's still unbelievable the lengths they go to stop our right to own firearms

Who is worse than ours in regards to permit to purchase handgun?  Maryland, California, New York?  I gotta say I think we probably take the cake.

      A fellow forum was asking about a display case for his wife’s pistol I believe. So I decided after seeing some display cases for insane prices, to make my own out of more or less cheap prices. 
      This one will be for my Nighthawk Custom Falcon 1911.
      I started out with a humidor I had when I was on a cigar kick with the club.
      Humidors make perfect cases for your gun. 
      Why? Its designed to keep moisture in so your cigars don’t dry out. Ones that are well made have a nice tight seal.
      ‘But John, we don’t want to keep moisture in. It will hurt the gun’. Correctomundo! But using it to keep moisture out works too! If you are not a cigar smoker, a humidor keeps the cigars from drying out by putting a moisture pad inside. We simply won’t be using the moisture pad nor the cheapo humidity gauge they usually give you.
      So lets start. One used but still in great shape humidor with glass lid. If you don’t have one, you can pick up something decent for about $50. I added a lik leather NH tag to use to open lid. They are air tight and easier to open with something to grab.

      If you use a humidor, they sometimes come with a lil shelf and divider. Toss them.
      Next, we added a little antique bronze clasp. 5 for $12 on Amazon. They come with tiny wood screws. You’ll need a jeweler type phillips head and a small awl to start a hole. Do not screw in without a starter hole. Also a mini pad lock with skeleton key.


      Next, you’ll want something to lay in there like velvet. I chose purple velvet. Rather than buy it by the yard, I actually got 2 - 14”x14” pillow shams with zippers on Amazon for about $11...
      This is a lot cheaper than buying it by the yard plus you don’t gave to sew anything. Just stuff it and zip it.

      You will need something to stuff it. That is your choice. I already had a bag of poly fill from another project. You can even rio open al old pillow and use the guts.


      Next is rechargeable Silica packs. I got a 25 count bag cheap also on Amazon. I chose to line the bottom of the case and also throw some inside the sham.


      Once you beat it and adjust it to get in the right position, you can see how the gun sits and adjust as needed.
      Next is optional and not cheap. I picked up 2 - Sensor Push bluetooth temp/humidity sensors for $50 each. One for the box and one for my safe. After calibrating them and pairing them to my phone, I inserted one into the display case.


      You don’t have to do this but I’m a bit of a tech nerd so.... [emoji6]
      You can also use a cheap digital one too.
      This one transmits data and stores 20 points which you can set alarms in the app if moisture increases. Kind of more important in my safe but....[emoji16]
      Here is a sample of the data. I just put them in so it will take time to level off.


      That’s pretty much it. Outside of the sensors, its cheap, easy and looks great. You can fo crazy with it or go simple.

      After reading so many references to the new FARS application and registration system, I stopped by my local PD to check it out. I believe it’s worth mentioning that not all PD’s are currently using the new system. So, before paying any fee’s or signing on to FARS you should check which system your PD is using.
      Sorry if this info is redundant to another post, again thought it was worth noting as all fees are non-refundable
      Firearms Application & Registration System (FARS)
      The State of New Jersey is now accepting firearms applications for Firearms Purchaser Identification Cards and Pistol Purchase Permits electronically. 
      The following Web site will allow an applicant to apply for Initial and Duplicate Firearms Purchaser Identification Cards and Permits to Purchase a Handgun: 
      https://njportal.com/NJSP/FARS
      If you reside in a New Jersey State Police covered area and are certain which NJSP Station you are applying through, utilize the following ORI #’s to apply.  If you are not certain, contact the NJSP station to obtain the proper ORI before applying.  All fees are non-refundable.

      Fun little gun - especially if you're a plinker. I am the original owner of this gun and it is lightly used, with only 74 rounds through it. Comes with everything as you would expect when buying new. 4.25" .45 Colt/.410 barrel, matching holster and case. I also have some .410 defensive load shells. Can have my FFL ship to yours or we can meet at his place in Manahawkin for a face-to-face.
      Prices:
      Bond Arms Ranger II w/holster - $475 Assortment of 56 .410 defensive load shells - $30 ($57 value) PM me if interested. Thanks! 
      Dave
