I have read multiple posts about avoiding NJ with firearms.

What exactly is their issue?

The reason I ask is if I want to hunt at Tioga PA its a long way out of the way to avoid NJ ....

Even worse if you want to go South like NC

No real issues. Just keep everything locked up like you do going through Bloomturdville and you're good.

Driving really fast may not be the best advice. ;D

3. been dishonorably discharged from the armed forces: Does this preclude a person from owning a firearm, or just NJ's decision?

or

4. renounced his United States Citizenship: Why does this matter to NJ? Non-citizens can own guns.

Hollow point ammo is also a no-no in N.J.

They have a history of hassling LEO's from other states, and arresting people who are otherwise legal.

A friend of mine is a LEO and said HE will not drive through NJ.

Common misconception, most often perpetrated to that episode of the Sopranos back in the day.

There is nothing wrong with HP ammo if you are using it legally. Basically you just cannot use it for defensive purposes.

http://www.njsp.org/about/fire_hollow.html

N.J.S.A 2C:39-3f(1) limits the possession of hollow nose ammunition. However, there is a general exception that allows for the purchase of this ammunition but restricts the possession of it to specified locations. This exception provides that:

(2) Nothing is sub section f (1) shall be construed to prevent a person from keeping such ammunition at his dwelling, premises or other land owned or possessed by him, or from carrying such ammunition from the place of purchase to said dwelling or land . . . [N.J.S.A 26:39-3g (2)].

Thus a person may purchase this ammunition and keep it within the confines of his property. Sub section f (1) further exempts from the prohibited possession of hollow nose ammunition "persons engaged in activities pursuant to N.J.S.A 2C:39-6f. . . ."
N.J.S.A 26:39-3f. (1).

Activities contained in N.J.S.A 26:39-6f. can be broken down as follows:

1.A member of a rifle or pistol club organized under rules of the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and which filed its charter with the State Police;
2.A person engaged in hunting or target practice with a firearm legal for hunting in this State;
3.A person going directly to a target range, and;
4.A person going directly to an authorized place for "practice, match, target, trap or skeet shooting exhibitions."

Not entirely true. One can't carry it, but it can be used for hunting, range use, and transported.
