To carry or transport a handgun in NYS you MUST have a NYS pistol permit. No ifs or buts.

OK, just a hypothetical here - what is the definition of a handgun? What if say with a Glock you removed the barrel and sent it via UPS to your final destination, are you still transporting a firearm if there is no way for it to fire a round???

The receiver is the pistol. Everything else is a part.

Just drive man jesus. No ones guna know u have it. Just keep it of plain sight. If u get stoped the dbag cop is just guna give u ticket for whatever u were violating. Not search your car. U would have to concent to that which i dont kno y anyone would. And hell never randomly ask to go thru ur car unless your suspicious as hell. Nj cops got better **** to deal with than small time cops. N if for sum reason he asks if u have ne drugs ir guns in the car. Just lie n say no officer. Duh easy. No go driving wherever u like

You know, Dickie has a good point. I cannot imagine why your vehicle would be searched unless it were being inventoried for impound. I don't recommend lying to law enforcement, but being vague or silent..... Innocent until proven guilty.

in a word dont in nj you will be arrested just for haveing a handgun without a nj firearm permit. even it it taken appart and locked up ny will arrest you if your magazine is over 7 bullets theirs a federal law thats soupost to protect you if your just passing thure. but nj and ny dont care they will still arrest you impound your gun you will spend thounds defending yourself, they will drop the case after awail and you will haft to file a law suit spending thounds more to get your gun back which probley only cost a few hundred this has happened and people have gone to prison dont do it
