    That's interesting....that NJ would allow that.

    Because I bought two Anderson lowers from them and they were delivered to the store so the price could not be beat at I think $29 or so each?

    I'm sure their system benefits someone besides them but for gun purchases unless they happen to have an extremely hard to find item that has eluded me everywhere else..and at a damned good price,standing around for three hours...no thanks.

    If you're buying a gun in PA its not up to NJ to let you or not let you buy the gun its up to PA regardless if you're a NJ resident or not. PA allows NJ residents to buy and have transferred to them long guns in PA as long as they've got a NJ FID card.

    Federal law says that handguns can only be transferred to you in your home state. However, if a state wants to sell rifles or shotguns to out of state visitors that's up to the state and each state has its own set of standards and list of states that people have to be from in order to buy long guns in the state.

    Hmmm,guess I worded my reply incorrectly but I'm aware that it is not up the state of New Jersey to allow or disallow a citizen to make an out of state purchase.I wonder though if it is legal for NJ citizens to bring guns into the state under those circumstances.

    So has anything changed at the Hamburg store or are long waits still the norm? I have to pick up a rifle I bought online and I'm hoping it doesn't take all day.

    Are they just busy with a lot of customers?
    Are they understaffed with just one guy?

    I mean, what the fuck is taking so long? Specifically? How can it take 45 minutes to check-out?

    Best I can tell is that there are different employees handling different steps of the sale. Once you finish one step you get in line for the next. This rifle is already paid for so hopefully that'll speed things up.

    I did a pickup recently on a weekday afternoon and the in/out was about an hour, which is the same as last time. Got called in ten minutes or less, paperwork submitted in another ten, and the rest was waiting on the approval and checkout. There were 3-4 people doing the last step, and I was about fifth in line when I got to that stage. Of course YMMV!
