    What can I bring?

    I just got a call from a buddy in New Jersey. He is joining a range that pretty much covers everything. Shotgun & 5 stand, 100 yard range, 200-300 yard range and pistol.

    I have a Sportsman License and live out in Suffolk County.

    What can I bring to New Jersey with me?

    I think I can bring shotguns and long guns, but no pistols. Am I right?

    Please help keep me out of jail...

    I wouldn't even consider bringing a handgun into that chemical waste dump.
    It's possible you're allowed to shoot them at the range but i wouldn't do it.

    why not call the range and ask them?
    They probably know more about it than most and have probably been asked this a lot.

      NJ requires a permit even for long guns, if I'm not mistaken you can't bring your guns there, unless you have their life time purchaser card.
      As Aquabach stated best bet is to call them.

        Also, regarding ammo, here's the NJ Troopers on transporting hollow points:

                I agree that you should call the range, but I had a similar question regarding CT, as a pretty famous guy that I am not going to name (I know you can all guess, but I don't want to say it, because I don't want to name the range) was doing a live fire day long class. This was after all the new shit here, and in CT. They actually told me it would be no problem to bring whatever, but probably should transport in trunk. I wasn't going to argue, but after I said I wasn't comfortable, they said they probably could rent me a gun, but with the popularity of the class, they might be out. I asked if I could reserve, and pay in full, so they wouldn't get stiffed if I didn't show up, but it was first come first serve policy on rentals. I don't think they were trying to intentionally screw me, and my translation was if I could make it to the range, nobody there would give a shit, so transporting in the trunk was a low risk proposition, which I agree, but they did not say that. They implied that I was perfectly within the law to transport to the class. Unless there is some range exemption, which I asked and was told there wasn't, the guy was pretty nice, but gave me horrible advice. He probably was right, I could have gotten away with it, but the downside just wasn't worth it, and I ended up not going. I guess my point is check with the range, but you may want to try and pull up the NJ laws on the web as well, and see it with your own eyes.

                  Truly makes the case why you have to read the laws that apply. I thought if anyone in NJ had hollow points except LE, you were toast. I am shocked that you can use them on a range. Even more so why you have to read the applicable laws with your own eyes. I would even print them out, and throw them in a range bag. Might keep you out of cuffs if you showed them to an officer that you had no intention of breaking any laws.

                    The NJ state police gun unit has a number in Trenton. You can google it. I have called them in the past and gotten straight, black and white answers, not like NY State Police.
                    If you are going to shoot at this range more often, get a NJ non resident Firearms ID card. with the ID, Troopers told me I can bring my rifle, shotgun handgun into NJ in locked cases to go to a range but NO CARRY!
                    SA Shotgun was limited to 6 rounds as of January.
                    Give peace a chance, I'll cover you in case that doesn't work out.

                      I know you can shoot handguns there at a sanctioned match, we do it all the time. But I don't know if you're just going there to shoot at a range.
                      And we bring hollow point ammo with us all the time.
                      Just keep the gun and ammo seperate, and locked up.
