I'm also from N.J. and I too moved to F.L.

Just lock them in a case and come on down. You can even transport them on a plane "I did this visiting N.J. last winter." Obviously not on you; you need an airline approved case, and you need to check it as baggage; call ahead of time and let them know.

Florida's laws are much less strict. You don't have to register your firearms. And, having one in you car is simple even without a concealed permit. You can carry a loaded firearm in your car, it just has to be out of reach or in a case "also can be wrapped in a shirt or just a paper bag, etc..."

Well, if it's not known for certain, it's always better to err on the side of caution. Hell, half the cops don't know what the laws are///

I don't think NJ would take kindly to me driving through their state with my AR-15 or handguns.

That's a good point about the local LEO's not even knowing the laws... I should have mentioned I went through the same thing. You get different answers depending on who you talk to. The best people to talk to IMO are the local dealers, they know the laws.

I wanted to bring my AR to NJ, but it was too much of a hassle. Your magazine can hold no more than 15 rounds, so you have to get a 10 round or a lot of shops in NJ offer custom fab'ed 15 round mags. Collapsable stocks are illegal in NJ "on rifles; shotguns are OK," so I would have to purchase a fixed buttstock to bring my AR there; so I left it behind for that trip. Oh, and flash hiders are illegal; muzzle breaks only.

Another NJ law... hollow points are OK to shoot at the range. But, if someone breaks into your house you can not defend yourself with hollow points; you will be charged. To me that's just stupid.
