    Traveling into NJ for a competition

    I plan on competing in a G.S.S.F (Glock Shooting Sports Foundation) event at a range in Jackson NJ.

    I have been searching the internet for a few days and I often seen people reference a sportsman law that says you can come into the state with a hand gun to visit and compete at a sanctioned range, Can somebody please give me the statue that states this. If someone was asking me for the this information because they were traveling to NY for an event I would reference NYS Penal Law 265.20(13) that states

    Possession of pistols and revolvers by a person who is a
    Nonresident of this state while attending or traveling to or from, an
    Organized competitive pistol match or league competition under auspices
    Of, or approved by, the National Rifle Association and in which he is a
    Competitor, within forty-eight hours of such event or by a person who is
    A non-resident of the state while attending or traveling to or from an
    Organized match sanctioned by the International Handgun Metallic
    Silhouette Association and in which he is a competitor, within
    forty-eight hours of such event, provided that he has not been
    previously convicted of a felony or a crime which, if committed in New
    York, would constitute a felony, and further provided that the pistols
    or revolvers are transported unloaded in a locked opaque container
    together with a copy of the match program, match schedule or match
    registration card. Such documentation shall constitute prima facie
    evidence of exemption, providing that such person also has in his
    possession a pistol license or firearms registration card issued in
    accordance with the laws of his place of residence. For purposes of this
    subdivision, a person licensed in a jurisdiction which does not
    authorize such license by a person who has been previously convicted of
    a felony shall be presumed to have no prior conviction. The
    superintendent of state police shall annually review the laws of
    jurisdictions within the United States and Canada with respect to the
    applicable requirements for licensing or registration of firearms and
    shall publish a list of those jurisdictions which prohibit possession of
    a firearm by a person previously convicted of a felony or crimes which
    if committed in New York state would constitute a felony.

    And I would direct them to this web site

    http://public.leginfo.state.ny.us/LAWSSEAF.cgi?QUERYTYPE=LAWS+&QUERYDATA=$$PEN265.20 $$@TXPEN0265.20+&LIST=SEA4+&BROWSER=BROWSER+&TOKEN =53560759+&TARGET=VIEW

    And tell them to look at exception 13

    Can someone give me the same information for my circumstance
    I understand the federal law saying I can travel thru the state, but I am looking for a written statue that say I can travel into the state that I can print and put with my car registration and in my gun cases. What is getting me nervous is I attended this event last year and would have sworn I had a copy of the law but I canít find it now and from the information I have found so far it looks like I canít legally attend this event

    Thanks Larry

    Thank you that was exactly what I was looking for. I actually read that several times and some how always missed the "exception "part. Your call out to the exact statue was a great help thanks again

    I printed this out and plan on putting it on top of my gun cases while we are traveling.
