Being new to considering gun ownership I'm not certain what my next step would be...
First step is the Firearms Owners ID (FOID) and a pistol purchase permit. even if you don't plan to purchase a handgun the FOID is required for ammo purchase and some ranges will not rent to you or let you shoot without it.

The NJ State Police site appears to be down, contact your local PD for the paperwork.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
