So long story short, I unknowingly brought my handguin into NJ (under the car seat) and got caught by the cops with it. Lawyer got me off with 3 years Pre Trial intervention (which is like probation-lite) and 50 hours of community service. Upside is if I complete the PTI. All the charges get dismissed and I can have the record expunged. Like nothing happened.

But since Im a resident of PA, the probation gets transferred to PA. So I'm assuming my carry license gets revoked. What about the guns? Am I expecting a knock on the door from officer friendly to pick up the guns in person? Or do they call you up and make arrangements? Are they gonna use that pistol registry that they're not supposed to have, but we all really know they have. To make sure they get everything? Or is it just kind of an honor system?

The lawyer I worked with on the case in NJ couldn't really comment on the particulars of PA law, so I know. I'll be calling a lawyer in PA to figure it all out. Just wanted to get any insight from people who might know the process? I figure I'll use one of those firearm storage services. Then pick em up in 3 years. No way in hell I'm letting the cops melt them.

PS: Fuck NJ

I can't help you with your questions, but I gotta ask how did you end up getting caught with it?

Firearm storage service? I'm not familiar with those. Any details available?

If you have a trusted friend or relative handy, get your firearms and ammo out of your custody and into that person's custody immediately.  You're shortly going to be without either.

As a prohibited person, you really can't possess either.

Curious about this also.  I haven't had my vehicle searched since I was a teenager.

Had a late day, on the way home decided to stop in a big gas station/rest area off the highway to take a nap for a couple hours. Cops saw me sleeping, came by to do a "wellness check" (because I guess something is unwell about a person resting in a rest area at 1AM. Apparently that's not normal) I guess when I pulled the seat back to sleep my gun was peeking out from underneath and they saw it.

Here's one

https://www.poconogunstorage.com/

I'm sure there are similar ones around you. They offer non custodial storage, where a court orders you to store your guns there in leu of them being taken by LE. You still technically "own" them, but have no access. Then you get a court order to get them out.

From what I can find on google such do not exist on my end of the state. Seems a good idea although their prices are impressive.

That is some serious bullshit laws. Where in PA are you? Sure I could find some gun safe storage to help out
