References for gun permit (FID)

Recommended Posts

My employer gets contacted every time I apply for permits. 
 

They are in Texas (and most all of them, good GUN toting Texans!)...and they think it’s ‘cute’ that the NJ State Police calls them about ‘permission’ to buy a gun.

Well, mine are in Mass 

Besides the names and emails from my references, do I need their addresses, phones? sorry I'm asking too many questions but I don't want to screw up.

I appreciate the input.

It’s been awhile since I’ve applied for pistol permits, but I do believe you need addresses and phone numbers. 
 

Check the forms on the website. 

Now the application is online which is convenient but you need to have the info in advance.

Last time I got permits (4 months ago) my town was still on paper forms so all I needed wa name, address, and phone for my references (no e-mail).

The only time my employer was contacted was for my initial FID years ago.

You'll definitely need their email addresses, addresses and phone numbers.   They will send an email to your references that they will fill out submit online.  My place of employment has never been contacted.  

Thanks for the info.

I would call the people your submitting the info to. I was one of  my son's reference info for firearms ID & pistol permits. Yes Im his Dad. He did all online applications.  It said nothing on the form about relatives "not qualifying" as a reference.  

He has received his Firearms ID CARD & Pistol permits for NJ

Look at the online form it should contain instructions

You do, but they'll get emailed their reference forms. My references on my last pistol permits submitted their forms within 15 minutes of me applying for the permits so it definitely gets emailed out fast.

FYI...My town, Berkeley Twp, allows immediate family members to be the references. I use my wife and my father. Of course, your town may be different.

 

Does it say the on the online form? meaning the qualifying references?, of course I will notify my references before hand.

I appreciate the input.

References usually can't be relatives, but can be friends out of state. Make sure email address is correct.

Employer will probably be contacted. Mine has not been in the past, but assume they will.

Refs can be a relative.  And employers can only answer if they are employed by them or not.

It does not say that on the state form, but my town has a page that says family is ok for refs. Your town may differ.

    • 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!
