When buying a pistol in NJ in 1969 you didn't need a FID, just a permit to buy that pistol.
Let's say that a person bought a pistol back then and kept it till today, but now wants to sell it. How would they go about selling it without an FID number?A pistol permit bought in NJ today requires an "IDETIFICATION CARDNO./Sellers SBI#"
So how do you do it?
Was there a law passed that anyone who owned apistol had to obtain a FID, even tho they never bought another firearm? If a law like that was passed, what hapens if someone didn't get an FID and still owns a pistol (that was legally purchased with permit many decades ago)?THANKS!!

I believe that everyone that possesses a firearm is also required to have a FPID , even if the firearm was acquired years ago. Check with the State Police...try the website if you don't feel comfortable calling them.

Contact a local gun shop. I am sure they buy guns all the time from heirs or estates that do not have a FID. They can tell you what to put in the sellers FID area.
