    Default LEOSA and NJ?

    Just curious, can off duty LEOs carry hollow points in NJ? Also magazine limits by state laws are applied to off duty LEOs too, right?

    Yes and I'm pretty sure no at least for your qualified duty/off duty weapon.

    Yes, in 2010 the HP issue was resolved. Mag limits were not addressed in LEOSA. I have seen some arguments that active/off-duty LEO's are exempt under LEOSA, but....I would follow the state's mag limits.

    Well I do know that off duty NJ Leo's are not restricted by the mag limits for their duty or qualified OD gun. All privately owned firearms have to follow state regs including the permitting process.

    What if you're a Constable or Deputy Constable? Technically you fall under LEOSA (which County Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs do not, unless they're from Allegheny County), but your duty/qualified handgun is your personal handgun.

    I took a NAA Guardian with a total of 7 hollow points through NJ into Manhattan while getting a huge corned beef sandwich over the weekend and had no issues. Except for a little heartburn.

    Yes, but they have to qualify with the weapon they will carry after getting an ID card from the agency they retired from.

    Here is the info:

    Is this a courtesy extended to LEO only? Is there any way a civilian can do this legally?

    No it's a federal law or ruling that took effect after 9-11 if I'm remembering correctly which grants active and retired LE officers from agencies with arrest powers the ability to carry in all states. We civilians get to play the collect as many non resident permits as we can and hope we are covered or leave it home.
