Default Another NJ firearm laws snafu

Anyone else have the same experience with Cheaper Then Dirt not willing to sell firearms to NJ residents? Tried to buy a rifle and they will not ship firearms to any licensed NJ FFL if the buyer is a NJ resident.
What the hell bullshit is this?
They claim it's a liability risk limiting business decision because of uncertainty of NJ gun laws.

They price gouged horribly during the panic after Sandy Hook. There are better vendors.

Google "ctd price gouging"

Well, cheaper than dirt---- I will never use them after their price gouging during the political ban on AR's. I'll spend more money elsewhere on higher prices if necessary. ( but it must be necessary lol. ) So F' em

I was at a pawn shop in Memphis several years ago looking at a used shotgun. I asked if they could sell to out-of-staters. They said they could then asked what state I was from. I replied "New Jersey". They said they wouldn't sell to me. But...it was only because they didn't know NJ laws and a FFL is required to comply with the laws of the buyer's state.

Its just simple supply & demand. Stay stocked up & you can be doing the gouging on those unprepared.

A few states go out of their way to make things difficult for firearms and ammo dealers out of state. It's the same thing in Mass.

I don't currently live in NJ and have no plans to so this is a problem for people who willingly live there. Until they move to Florida and start screwing things up here.

Yup, found a vendor in NJ that will order it in and I will have it in under 2 weeks. Saved me $80 bucks on the gun price plus an FFL fee of $50. I'll put this $130 into ammo and fug CTD.

i was one of the “lucky” ones who got a firearms charge for having a BB gun in my car in nj as a juvenile.

BB gun was purchased legally in PA while I was a resident of PA & figured out way later in life that legally it didn’t need to be registered in NJ.

Possession of an unregistered firearm was the charge.... broke kid in high school meant no lawyer. Had to get a waiver to join the military after the charge showed up on an FBI background check (after supposedly being expunged after paying fines & completing community service & probation).

F NJ

I believe the firearm laws are deliberately left vague and ambiguous in NJ so they can get you for some violation any time they want.

Yes they are. Try calling the NJ state police to get them to explain a fire arms law and they refuse to answer any questions. I needed to drive through Nj to get to Maine for a deer hunt and asked if I could legally bring my handgun through the state. No one I called in an official capacity would answer the question.

I live in the communist state of NJ. I tell my old man and uncle not to pass through to get to their hunting lands coming from NYC to western NY state. Take the long way around. Laws are way too confusing. And don’t stop at McDonalds on your way back from the range. That’s illegal as well.

It is beyond me why anyone would live in that state or even NY while we are talking. You always notice the most corrupt states are the ones trying to disarm their people? Forget the tax situation.

It should be illegal for 1/2 the state to stop at McDonald's, even without a gun.

BB guns are treated like firearms. You need a permit to purchase a hand gun. You need a firearms purchaser ID card to purchase a long gun.

Makes no sense. Why are nail guns legal? Uses a propellant and explosion to send a projectile. What about paint ball guns? Same concept as CO2 BB guns. Flare guns are legal
