DISCLAIMER: THE ARSENAL GUN SHOP DOES NOT PROCESS E-FID/E-PERMIT APPLICATIONS!
WE ONLY PROVIDE THIS INFORMATION AS A COURTESY, TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND HOW THE PROCESS WORKS WHEN APPLYING FOR YOUR FIREARMS PURCHASER IDENTIFICATION CARD (E-FID Card) AND/OR E-PERMIT TO PURCHASE A HANDGUN (E-permit).
Here's How The Process Works:
In order to purchase a long gun or handgun in NJ, you will need to apply for a NJ E-FID Card and/or NJ E-Permit to Purchase a Handgun (E-permit) through the NJ Firearms Application & Registration System (FARS).
Before you begin the electronic application process, you will need your local Police Department's ORI #.
An ORI (Originating Agency Identifier) # is a unique number assigned to each Police Department and State Agency. Be sure to choose the correct ORI #, as using an incorrect ORI # may result in the non-processing of your application.

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact your local Police Department directly.
