    Work in NJ, how to legally secure CCW before entering.

    Hi All,

    I'm a new member but have been reading the forums for a few months. I live in PA and travel to NJ several times each month for work. I have a PA carry license which I know is not valid in NJ. How do you carry in PA and then secure your CCW before crossing into NJ so as not to be drug off to prison should you be stopped for any reason while in NJ? Does anyone here do this on a regular basis?

    Regards,

    Tommy

    To the best of my knowledge you can't take your gun. Your destination is in NJ, you are not traveling through so federal law does not cover you.

    As a recent NJ resident... I can tell you right now... forget it.
    Unless you're a judge or somehow connected with a powerful politician, a concealed carry permit is just about impossible to obtain.
    (It's even difficult for retired LE.)
    Even worse are the penalties for carrying a firearm illegally... 7 years in state prison.
    You're far better off getting mugged and beaten to the inch of your life than to suffer that fate.

    Someone constantly remind me not to visit NJ, lol. I don't see that happening anytime in the near future but you never know.

    Thank for all of your replies. I guess it's OC and some big rocks when making the trip to Jersey.

    How about a safety deposit box in a bank in PA near the border?
    A small one (large enough for a pistol) should not be too costly.

    I have been a ccw holder in New York since the early 80's, and have worked in Jersey for 21 years now. All I can say is that state sucks(even worse than NY). It is very frustrating not to be able to carry there, when I carry here every day(when I get home). I also have a lot of friends that live there, and sucks not to be able to shoot together. Leave it home....they do not find any humor in bringing one in.

    Yes....but we have a little bit more gun priviledges than N.J.
    It is almost impossible even if you are law enforcement to get a carry permit if not actually working, no and I mean NO hollow point ammo of any kind allowed period......and NO slack on outsiders with legal permits if you are not a Jersey resident.

    NY vs NJ. In NJ it is easier to get a card to purchase and own a handgun. My son has my Sig P2022. Traveling to and from range gun must be locked away from ammo. As others have said just about impossible to get permit. Hollow points are allowed in your home.

    In NY it takes longer but you can usually, after going through hoops, get a limited permit good for range and hunting. Full carry permits are issued in some upstate counties or you can request restrictions removed after at least a year. You may carry gun loaded on person if on the way to a range. Thus the number of 24 hour ranges in NY. The best part is the restrictions are administrative. This means if caught carrying outside of restrictions you will most likely lose permit but NO legal issue. Once you get full carry there are hardly any restrictions on where you can carry. New York City is different than the rest of NY.

    I was born in Phila. when I visit the area and want to visit NJ relatives. I take my pistol to a gun shop and have it cleaned, while in NJ. Call a few shops and ask what they charge to hold it for X amount of time.

    Honorably retired law enforcement do not need a CCW to carry in any of the 50 states.
