Shipping handguns from Florida to NJ

Recommended Posts

I know this has been covered a million times in this forum but I just don't have the time to look through all the posts.....My father in Florida wants to have me inherit his three handguns, I have a NJ FID plus a Florida CCW (if that matters at all) and my drivers license matches my FID card. Can my father simply box up the handguns and ship them up to me via FedEx or UPS to my address or should he go to a FFL in Florida and ship from there? To my address? to a FedEx location? What's the best method so I don't get arrested in this commie state.

You can't inherit them until he passes away. Presently, he will need to send them to a NJ Dealer to transfer to you on a NJ Permit for each one. That  can be done via a FL Dealer or an overnight carrier. You also will have to wait the 30 days in between acquisitions, or do the exemption forms.

Did you used to live in Florida as well?  If your Dad already gave them to you, I think you can transport them from your former residence in FL to your current residence in NJ.

Only if he acquired them as a resident of Florida, otherwise FFL and permits for each handgun.

I believe that his statement was a "wink wink nudge nudge" one.

Not really.  Somewhere in the firearm regulations is defines "resident". If he ever was a resident of FL and his father had the handguns before that, then maybe?

1. What documentation does FL require for a person-to-person transfer?

2. Did Golani ever have a Florida DL (residence)?

If the documentation was filed on a date within a range that he had a Florida DL, then he acquired the firearms while he was a FL resident, before coming to NJ.

If there is no documentation and he had a Florida DL, then ... hopefully you get the idea.

If he never had Florida residence/DL, well then SOL ...

Makes sense?

I was just trying to jog the OP's memory as to whether the guns were his while he had a residence (including a parental residence) in Florida.  

If there is a simple, legal way to do the transfer, one needn't look at the more difficult, legal ways to accomplish the same thing.

Thanks guys, never even considered the transfer issues here. I actually had a DL in Florida about thirty years ago but still have the expired license (liked my picture) so maybe I can simply calm the gnd have been mine all the while since my parents have been living in Flordia since then and I needed a place to keep my firearms there....

    • BCM complete lower for sale.  New in box/bag.  Taken out only for pics.  BCM PNT trigger. $600.  FIRM.  Must be transferred through your FFL.  All FFL related fees are on buyer.  I am in Bergen County.  I accept PP (friends and family), Venmo, zelle, cash (if in or near Bergen County). First to reply "I'll take it" wins the sale. I am willing to consider trades for a noveske gen 3 lower, lwrc lower, kac, and maybe a decent optic such as aimpoint, eotech,  trijicon.   Thanks.   P.s.  if interested,  I have a new BCM BCG as well for $300 FIRM.  
    • Prong collar is amazing. My Pit never ever needed a correction. She would sure come running when I shook it like a set of sleigh bells. She loved her prong collar, many happy times wandering around the neighborhood.
    • Nope they are one of the few who don't ask for it.
    • Does Natchez require a copy of your FID to ship handgun ammo to NJ? I didn’t see mention that they do, only IL. 
    • As KC17 posted above; and all spot on great info..  I was also a member of Range-14 and i too let my membership expire this past January..  It just wasnt for me. The odd hours and days never fit my schedule.. And honestly, its really no cheaper in the end, other then the one time 600$ capital contribution fee. I would take my two kids with the range 14 for two hours. Thats 30$.. Do that a handful of times a year, plus the 90$ annual fee, and you'll be at at least 300$ a year..  At this point, you would be lucky to get in CJRPC until July or August.. With the prorated membership dues, you looking somewhere around 725$..  Hell, sell a case of ammo and your in..  Or apply those Biden bucks to it..  Theres plenty of credit oppurtunities at CJRPC. Get involved and be active, and you could damn near be in for free each year.. If you ever want to just take a drive through and check it out, let me know. Im only 15 mins from there..
