NO NO NO You are incorrect, a father can not give a son a gun without a completed S.P.634, the exception is if the father DIES he can leave the guns to the son who can legally possess them without a FID. A father can allow a son or any non convicted felon the use of a gun if hunting with the son but cannot give one as a gift without a S.P 634 and FIDyes and yes, fid is only for buying a long gun

This is done all the time but no, it's not legal. The friend must be present at all times and transfer must take place in the field.I plan on using a shotgun and muzzle loader that a friend of mine is loaning me for the season. After talking to a game warden and reading as many gun laws as I could find on "hunting", from what I understand I can transport a firearm that is not registered to me for the purpose of hunting as long as I am traveling directly from home to my hunting location and directly back home. Obviously abiding to all other laws about transporting firearms; it being unloaded and in a case and so on. An "FID" card is only needed to purchase a firearm not to own or posses one. I would suggest you do your own research and read the law for yourself before you listen to my interpretation of it or anyone else. Always better that way.
That is correct.First, nobody here asked your age. It makes a difference.
If you are 17 or under your father can LOAN you a firearm for hunting. You can legally transport it directly to and from hunting. Your father does not have to be present.
If you are over 18 the "Transfer" must occur in the field and not more than 8 hours. The owner must be present the entire time.
In order to take legal ownership from your father or anyone else while living in NJ you must have a NJ FPID. You must be 18 or over. You must fill out a Certificate of Eligibility.
I've encountered mixed information on this topic. Can I hunt with my father's shotgun(s) without a FID and keep things legal?yes, if he is hunting with you Can he give me a firearm to keep without a FID legally?No
that's all good until there is an accident or a complaint that may bring the law to your locationI don't know what the "law" is, but I've been pulled over with a shotgun in the car by NJ state police and was never asked for a FID card. I've been checked by NJ game wardens in the field and was never asked for a FID card. They didn't ask if I had one or ask who owned the gun.
