So my PD, like most in the state, can take a few months to issue my pistol permits. My problem is that I like to periodically browse for handguns to purchase. Now, for an online sale, I can buy and have it sit at my FFL until the permit matures.
The problem for me arises when it comes to a private/face to face sale. If I want to buy and avoid FFL and NICS fees, it would mean that I'd need a pistol permit ready. But since they can take months to process, this is rarely the case. Obviously one solution is to involve a FFL and pay more fees.
One other solution is to just apply for pistol permits every 6 months since they are valid for that long (including extension). This way I suppose I could always be ready for a local NJ private sale (and let them expire if I don't find anything I like)...
Would there be any legal problems with this? Any other ideas or solutions? What do you do if you like to buy pistols relatively often?
As many of you know, I have decided to flee NJ. I will be putting my house up for sale "by owner" in a few weeks. For the time being, I am posting it here, hoping for you guys to spread the word prior to me listing it nationally. My siblings will be available to show my home only to pre-qualified buyers by scheduling an appointment with me @ 609.FourOneTwo.3955. I will not have internet access for several days, so calling would be the best option. You may view pictures and a full description by clicking http://tinyurl.com/lnxkkfd. Please, do not go to my home without an appointment. Also, there are no more guns on location.
"Substantially Identical" was ruled unconstitutionally vague in a 1996 lawsuit. The court ordered the then AG to define what "Substantially Identical" means, Peter Venierio - the then AG - plagiarized the federal AWB's "evil features" list to define substantially identical, which is how this became the standard.
All the M1 Carbine clones are all illegal because AG Paula Dow unilaterally decreed them to be illegal. There was no legal basis for this, only an anti gun AG saying so. IMO this is ripe for a lawsuit, any got the cash to spare for one?
