Default Laws on gifting a hand gun in NJ

My son lives in PA and I live in NJ.
He wants to give me a handgun as a gift. Does anyone know the proper procedure to transfer the gifted pistol?
I have a NJ FID card and also have a pistol permit but I donít want to waste it on a gift transfer.

Thanks
RD

I think if he gives it to you in PA no transfer is needed. If he does it in NJ you're going to probably have a ton of paperwork. I do wonder if the law works son to dad though. I know it works dad to son without transfer.. Someone out there will post the law soon.

Interstate handgun transfers are required by FED law to go to an FFL in the recipient's state. There are no 'family gift' exemptions as in the PA law.

Sounds much easier to just get a gift card, no?

Not in this case.
The pistol was part of a group of guns he bought...
