So, i want to take ownership of my dads shotgun. I do not have a gun permit. I just filled out the NJ firearm purchaser ID card form. Can i mail this to the NJSP or do i drop it off at the local PD? After this gets approved what is the next steps? is it a pain? I miss clay shooting, and i have a nice browning B-80 semi-auto that has been sitting idle for the last 8 years. Also I had a shotgun hunting permit that i have not renewed in 10 years.

i just had my permit done. I had to go down to the local PD with all the forms and drop them off, then i had to take one of the documents they gave me and have my finger prints done at a finger print place ( i had to wait a couple weeks for an appointment). After that it took about a month and a half to get the permit.

Local PD for fingerprinting otherwise they'll send you somewhere to have them done.

All that you need for rifles and shotguns is the NJ Firearms ID card...unlimited purchase of either

Permits are only for handguns.... One permit for each gun.

I'd recommend dropping off the all the forms at your local PD (with accompanying payment of course) rather than mailing it in.
I don't know if your town schedules fingerprinting in advance or handles on the spot, but expect them to take a few prints from you also.

The background check can run anywhere from 3-6 weeks (depending on town) and if all goes smoothly, you'll get a call from your local PD stating that everything was approved and to pick up your card.

If you haven't done so already, make sure you notify your references that they may be getting a call regarding this so they're not caught off guard.

As for the transfer, once you have the permit you'll need some sort of paperwork / proof of purchase from the person you're "buying / getting" the gun from and head over to your local PD with that info as well.

Hope this helps.

Negative

All that is needed is for the both of you to fill out a NJ Certificate of Eligibility Form (google the PDF file)

EACH one of you must retain a copy of that form

You do not have to make the police aware of the transfer in any way since it's a face to face transfer and no background check is required.

Milk,

Thanks for the clarification.
I've never transferred and was explaining what a family member of mine had to do, but their involved transferring from out of state into NJ.

Thanks again.

You're welcome.

If you are transfering a pistol that does have to be reported, I believe within 5 days, since handguns are for all intents and purposes registered here, while rifles and shotguns are not.

Just like Milk said. After you receive your FID Google "NJ Firearm Transfer Form." Fill it out and you and the party transferring the firearm just need to each have a copy for your records. Very easy considering the idiotic gun laws we are burdened with by this damn state.

They may...I'd check with Evan Nappen if you're concerned.

You have the Consitutional right to bare arms!

You want this done before that right is taken away from you, once they take that right what makes you think they next step isnt to go out and collect all those registered guns?

Take the gun, load up on ammo and dont tell a soul!

Pete, you will be the last people they come for because they will not know. Register and you will be first.
Curl, no conviction = no problem. I heard it from a guy on the internet so it must be true your honor.
