Firearms Licensing

The New Jersey State Police has updated the procedure to apply for Firearms ID Cards and/or Pistol Purchase permits. 

Applicants will apply online at

When applying you will need to apply using the Originating Agency Identification (ORI) Number NJ0133500. Confirm with Neptune City Police if you are not sure what town you are a resident of. If an incorrect ORI number is entered on the form, you will NOT receive a firearms ID card or a permit to purchase. You will then have to re-apply using the correct ORI number and pay for the process again. A refund can not be issued.

If you have never been fingerprinted before for firearms purposes, you will need to go for fingerprinting with the Universal Fingerprint Form that will be generated after successful submission of this form. However, if you have been fingerprinted before for firearm purposes, upon completion of this form and payment, you would have completed both S.T.S 033 and 212A requirements.

For general questions about firearms please see the New Jersey State Police Frequently asked questions link.
