Okay so I have liked it here so far, it's been just over a month and the hunting weather is awesome, there are tree's ( tall treesfor most of texas the tallest tree is a mesquite tree..lol) and real forests. And seems to be lots of public land unfenced. That is great and all but hell it seems like in order to own/buy a gun you gotta get a permit to get a permit to get a permit. Back home I just went the store ( gun store obviously) the guy ran my social and dl# and such and anywhere from 15 minutes to maybe a day depending on how deep they ended up haveing to search I walked away with my gun. I still have not figured out how much it is gonna cost me to register the ones I already have here in south jersey. Hell I thought they were already registered! lol [confused] I remember filling out some paperwork but I guess that was not enough.
Hey bloodtrails thanks for the information, it was truly helpful! I was made to believe that I had to re-register firearms that I had already purchased ( legally of course). ! To change the subject, this will be the first time I have hunted on public land of any sort and also the first time to hunt outside of Texas. Do I have to first get my NJ DL before I can get an in state hunting license and will te hunters ed I took through the Texas parks and wildlife hold up here or do I have to go through that again? Again thanks for all the help, u guys have been nothing but kind![up][up][up]
No problem, NJ firearms laws can be very confusing. I would suggest you pick up a book titled "Nappen II". This book is a grat reference for all our screwed up firearms laws. Many sporting goods stores have them but I think you can also get it at www.evannappen.com.
Your hunters ed from TX should be fine to get a license here.
I'm not sure what license agents need exactly to prove residency but having a drivers license is probably the best proof.
