    hello from Atlantic City, NJ

    Hey.
    I'm not new to the forums, but this is my first post. I have been reading the threads for about a year. When I signed up for the forums I was living in Florida. I did lots of reading about CCW and was eager to make my first handgun purchase and take some classes about safe shooting.

    But I resisted my temptations because I knew I would be moving to NJ within the year. Now that I'm here.. I regret having moved.

    The CCW permit here, from what I've read, is nearly impossible to obtain. I work in the casino industry and it took 12 weeks just to get a Casino Control Commisision license. ( this gives me the right to work in a casino in Atlantic City ) - It's so hard just to get a permit to work with money, imagine how difficult it must be to get a CCW permit.

    I know I won't be able to carry. However, I do still wish to get a FID permit and a Handgun Purchase Permit. So that'll atleast give me a right to own a handgun for home defense.

    Now comes the fun part.. what gun to buy?

    - Pete

    Welcome from Middle Tennessee, and good luck as you jump through the hoops to get your concealed-carry license...the only way to guarantee you don't get one is not to try!

    Welcome from up north. When looking at guns the guys at Lawmen in Egg Harbor are a good place to start.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.
