You're done. There is no mandatory registration in NJ, even for handguns.

You will want to get a new FID card, however, for future purchases.

When you apply for the ID card at your local PD, you'll apply for a permit for each handgun. At least that's what I had to do when I moved to NJ 12 years ago.

handguns must be registered at the local police dept.
No such thing as mandatory firearm registration.

Only voluntary.

No. You only need a permit to purchase. Existing legally owned handguns and other firearms DO NOT need to be registered in NJ.

Really, maybe I was overly cautious, but they told me at the PD, I needed to have a permit for each hangun, so that's what I did. [confused]
