Hi,

I have just signed up, so not sure if I am posting this correctly.
I currently live in NJ and am planning to move out to Levittown Long Island.
Currently I own Legally 3 handguns, shotgun an M&P 30,and some riffles.
How do I legally bring them to Long Island / transfer.
Is it even possible, or would I need to sell them here in NJ and apply for new permits in NY?

I am so confused on the process. So if anyone can direct me to the correct thread? or answer any of my concern, I would be really appreciative.

Thank you All

Newbie

Nassau County Pistol License is what you need. Go to the website and get started to see what to do: https://pistol.pdcn.org/home.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f
Essentially you will hand your pistols over to an FFL in Jersey. Pay him to ship your pistols to an FFL in New York who will them transfer them to you once licensed, all for a nice sum of money. By the way, its 10 round magazines only here, and you can only load them to 7 rounds in the home.
And welcome to Long Island. You're gonna hate it here.

What do you mean by possession? I own these handguns Legally in New Jersey. they currently are in my possession. Or do I need to leave them in NJ until I apply for a permit In LI and only then can I bring them to my new home?I thought NJ had stricter laws on hand guns than Long Island? Please don't tell me I was wrong????

It's a felony to handle a handgun in NY without a license. You can also transfer them to an FFL here that will hold them until you get your Nassau license.

Cool , it's Friday. Be prepared to wait 18 months before you can touch your pistols again. Do you know anybody on LI with a permit to transfer them until you get your permit (maybe )
I can transfer them to someone that I know, So basically they will hold on to them until I get the Permit? New jersey took only six 6 months for me to get my firearms ID card. I have been already checked out by the FEDS as far as fingerprinting background checks and so on. They have to do the whole process again? What if I was to leave them here in NJ in my other Home? I know if you live in PA and move to NJ you don't even have to register them if you choose not too. Again that's in NJ supposedly supper Strict Gun Laws. I guess its worse in LI. Thank you for your input. Will have to think this through.

NJ guns laws are an infringement, stupid and highly restrictive.
Unlike Nassau County NY, where the gun laws are an infringement, stupid and highly restrictive.
NY State's SAFE Act was the abomination that probably pushed us passed NJ in the stupid politically corrupt asinine gun laws race.

It is NY State law to grant you your pistol license within 6 months of application.
Nassau County is notorious for breaking that law.
Read the guidelines for application on the NCPD link and perhaps give NCPD a call Monday and ask.
I can't bring your property, ( the handguns) into this particular liberal sinkhole until NCPD grants you a license.
I'm pretty sure about that.
You can bot bring them here even to transfer them. You hacve to have an FFL in NJ send them to an FFL here.
if you know someone that has a licensce in NY they can "buy" then from you. That's the easiest way.
ALL gun purchase have to go through an FFL now in this socialist mecca.
I wish we had better info for you but you don't want us to give you false hope or lie now do you?

I grew up in Levittown.
Good Luck and welcome to the forumn.

BTW, when it comes time to ship handguns ghere there are several FFLs that are either members here or we know who are good guys and good to deal with.
Still going to be a PITA

6 months will not happen in Nassau. The Nassau wait times have nothing to do with you already having a NJ license. They simply don't care. You are looking at 12-16 months for a Nassau license from start to finish. Oh, BTW, you had better make some friends in Nassau real quick because you will need 4 references to even apply for the license. Welcome to some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country. At least the pizza and bagels are way better here.

You're wrong.
Leave in Jersey. Get NY permit (by the way, you do have four Nassau County residents, not relatives, who will sign notarized statements, twice, vouching for you?), wait six to 16 months for license, then transfer. In the interim, start shopping for 10 round mags.

Why are people saying that the OP would need to transfer them to an FFL in NJ who would than transfer them to an FFL in NY? They belong to the OP, so why can't he call a reputable FFL in NY and make arrangements to "overnight" them via a common carrier ie UPS to said FFL and have that FFL hold them until he gets his permit? Once he has his permit the FFL and the OP can do the coupon thing and they are his again.

"CALL NASSAU COUNTY PLB" and ask them the correct procedure. There are 10,000,000 answers available on the inter web, few are correct.
What if they tell you something wrong over the phone?. You later going to quote the phone conversation and thats going to get you out of hot water?

Forget the phone, follow the application process as set out in the application and handbook, to the letter. Follow all instructions. Its not hard. If you do have questions, and feel a need to call, tape the conversation or at least write down the name at the PLB person, time and date of the call.

Information on here about licensing gets vetted pretty hard by the membership, who've been doing this for years. OP, don't hesitate to ask questions here if you get stuck.
