    Am i reading this right?

    So apparently NJ has a new law that required the same process to buy firearms for BB, pellet, or air guns in nj. I have a few questions:

    does this include CO2 powered airsoft/paintball guns (wouldnt be surprised)

    and so this means if i want to get a pellet airgun for small game, i need an FID?

    Say it isnt so....

    Nope... as ridiculous as it is, It's actually been on the books for many years in New Jersey and to buy a bb or pellet pistol you must have a pistol purchasing permit...

    Go to PA buy it there legally then bring it home. FIDcard is only required to purchase not to own. If its bought legally out of state your good to go. PA doesn't consider an air rifle a firearm. Anyone 18 or over can purchase one. And no this law has been around as long as I remember. When I was 18 twenty years ago I bought myself a crossman 2100 in PA. Just don't bring one here with a silencer, that's the new law you may be thinking of. Witch isn't a new law either, just recently brought to light.

    Paintball and airsoft are still legal to buy at this time. But its a gray area, the right prosecutor gets his hands on a case that could change in an instant.

    okay so in order for me to get an air gun for small game i just need to go to another state? But don't all firearms need to be registered in NJ? (even though its not a firearm in PA, it is a firearm in NJ)?
