I get the message NJ, 10-4.http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/12/0...perts-say/
In Oregon, potential fire arm-buyers fill out the background check, pay between $9 and $15, wait for the clearance; when cleared,
they are escorted to the cashier/door, pay and walk out with what ever they want to buy which may include bulk-ammo, H/C mags, (before the empty shelves era), perhaps a 12 pack of beer (for cooking), a pkg of beef jerky, even on a Sunday (no blue-laws here).
Oregon's CCW law is OK; any licensed hunter/angler (21 & over) is allowed to carry a concealed HG in-route to, during and leaving- from a hunting/angling expedition; even while hunting with an archery tag. (ORS 166.260 3d)http://www.ochlc.com/Oregon-Conceal...w-d12.htm?
CCW: $65 to apply, $50 to renew every 4 or 5 years; does little or nothing to affect a fire arm purchase, CCW reciprocity reflects a modern government enterprise (Oregon accepts nobody's, 13 states accept Oregon). Utah has the best CCW reciprocity IMO (31 states).
As far as I know from my querries in Colorado, OR. and WA. state, a HG cannot be sold directly to a non-resident customer without an FFL; the HG must be shipped & transferred to a local FFL of the customer's choosing ($50 for first FA, then $25 ea for the remaining FAs + shipping). Over the counter long guns; OK, same as Oregon.
I bought 3 raffle tickets at a gun show at Cheyenne WY back in 2001; the Ray Hawkins for Governor campaign (really) was selling 5 dollar raffle-tickets for a chance to win a guided buffalo hunt, a Marlin 1896G .45-70, or a Colt .45. That is the state to go to for the best FA laws IMO; even though Ray Hawkins didn't win that particular race..
PS Oregon treats veterans very-very-very well; thank you Oregon!
