    to a NJ address without violating any laws? Scoured the Statutes regarding this and could not find any prohibitions.
    Anyone in my State who is familiar with this process can you give me a shout?
    Thanks.

    The powder companies will not ship to NJ if it is not legal.

    If legal today, would not wait to order. Laws change every day, and not necessarily to the good.

    And normally it's a UPS shipment with a Hazmat fee, and UPS will be a "double check" for you and will not deliver it if it's not legal. So call the powder company like Graf & Son and see what they will do.

    thanks all. The laws are so convoluted that one can think they are doing nothing wrong and all of a sudden. I know what the federal laws are and what they entail. Most of our Laws are written so vaguely the average law abiding citizen can find him/herself in a dire situation. They love to pass laws that affect only law abiding citizens almost to the degree that that want you to mess up.
    As for myself I have worked hard and am now retired. And I still enjoy the out doors and what it has to offer...most States embrace the individual that contributes to the coffers in this kind of activity..but not here. And they wonder why Folks like myself are heading for the door.....

    Thanks all.

    Contact Jerry at Powder Inc. You have to send them a copy of your license and FID card.

    Loved New York State, but I left there in the mid 1990s for North Carolina. Many of the things I did in New York at the time and now enjoy doing in North Carolina today would make me a felon in New York today. Just the way it is.

    Agree with other posters, contact Powder Inc, they will know the where and how they can ship. Have placed a number of orders with them and they are good to work with. And again, you if legal today, do not wait.

    You must have a friend in Pennsylvania, everything black powder is legal there.
