I already have 2 Handgun purchase permits and a permit to purchase rifles and ammunition. I purchased a handgun from a friend. What do I do next?
Thanks. I don't have the for with me but will check it when I get home. If I have any questions, how do I get in touch with you tomorrow Lucy????
My purchase was from a friend in FLORIDA. On the handgun Purchase Permit there are 2 areas of possible use, one is for a dealer (not this case), the other is for an Individual and in red next to the word Individual it says in RED (Must be a NJ resident). Can I still use that area or do I have a problem?
OK, I'll have to go to the police station or state police station for the answer. I am where I was when I originally asked the question, "I purchased a handgun from a friend who lives in Florida. He delivered it to me here in NJ. I paid him and he gave me the handgun and the original bill of sale. What do I have to do, if anything, to "register" it in NJ so I can go to a firing range and do some target practice.".
A person not licensed under the GCA and not prohibited from acquiring firearms may purchase a firearm from an out-of-State source and obtain the firearm if an arrangement is made with a licensed dealer in the purchaser’s State of residence for the purchaser to obtain the firearm from the dealer.

I already paid and tipped Lucy for her original answer which turned out to be no answer to my question. I tried to rate you very Good and thank you but I was told that if i gave you "another" good answer I have to pay more. Not fair.
