    Right then.

    Firearm Purchaser's ID Card:

    1) Call your local police department, determine when they accept FID applications. Ask how much the fees are, and bring a money order carefully formatted exactly as they specify.

    2) Showup on time. Fill out form. Get Fingerprinted. Sign Stuff. Submit.

    3) Wait 3-12 months. Seriously.

    If you're interested in purchasing a handgun, you may also at the same time apply for a permit to purchase a handgun. You'll get that when your FID comes in, it's good for purchasing 1 handgun. If you want to purchase more than 1, you can enter the # you want in the space provided. If you go nuts and enter more than a few, you'll get a nasty knock on the door.


    Your FID is good to purchase longarms and ammo, and must be with you whenever you posess a firearm under the lawful situations: home/range/hunting/gunshop/gunsmith.

    Bwa ha ha ha ha hah ha.

    NJ is officially a "may issue" state, but in reality, it's a "won't issue" state, unless you're an uniformed armed guard, an FFL, or have political connections.

    Assuming that you have read Geek's reply, you might consider the following.

    I have absolutely no idea at all of what your situation might be, (business, social, marital, family or anything similar) but you might give some thought to moving.

    In 1967, I packed up, and left New York City, a result of the long gun registration act passed in that year. Of course, I was single then, between jobs, and I had a decent job offer on what is now known as The Left Coast, climbing about in an oil refinery.

    Personally speaking, I spent years and years living "on the road", and to the best of my recollection, have never regretted leaving NYC. Of course, these days, I wouldn't seriously recommend California either, but that's another matter.

    NJ Gun law book -> http://www.evannappen.com

    Firearms ID as described above to buy long arms and ammo

    Pistol Purchase permit needed for every pistol purchased.

    Carry permits are IMPOSSIBLE to get. Something like 600 in the whole state not including police (active or retired)

    So its kind of a freinds of the Governor permit.

    You might find it easier to emigrate to the United States.

    Good luck getting one. I've been trying to get one for 6 months. I have 3 on order at different book sellers. It's out of print, no used copies available either.
