NFA Firearms in the USVI
And sorry to say if you do end up hurting or killing someone, there will be retaliation. So, be ready to give up everything you own and get on the next plane back to the states ASAP.
Retaliation would happen in the states too, so it just wouldn't happen here.
BeachcomberStt.......oh yea .....I forgot that part....Oh and remember the Judge that" Hung Himself("yea right):X
is your alias in any way associated with the 'stxanon' alias from the 'phone threat' thread or is that a coincidence? if so don't go mowing down everyone you see looking angry on their cell phone. 😮
My alias is not related to "stxanon". I have made enough posts as my normal username that somebody could figure out who I am, and for theft reasons I created another username... No offense to anyone, but we know how things in the VI are. I am very aware of the crime situation in the VI. My firearm collection is definitely coming with me, it is just a question of the NFA items. I would most likely have a firearm in the house ready for personal protection, but the NFA items would stay in a vault.
Question - If anyone did bring their own firearm on island?...Could you tell me a little about your experience. I am hearing a couple of scenarios of how it gets done (see below). I really want to go the route where the least amount of people see my collection. If possible I would just prefer to give them (police) the serial numbers and do whatever paperwork is necessary, but not lay eyes on them. That way some of the value of them would not be apparent.
1. Get firearms permit for VI PD. Then ship the firearm in a shipping container with your personal items. Bring to VI PD Firearms Bureau to register it.
2. Get firearms permit for VI PD. Then put firearm in checked luggage. Bring to VI PD Firearms Bureau to register it.
3. Get firearms permit for VI PD. Do FFL to FFL transfer to dealer is USVI. I am a little fuzzy on the process of whether you are still required to bring it to the VI PD Firearms Bureau, or whether they physically need to see it.
I wonder if you could salt them in one by one over time, and maybe not the same person see your face in connection with every single gun and put two and two dozen together.
I have several different ideas to bring them here and register them, but discreetly. Salting them few at a time is a really good idea. I have considered that myself. Maybe testing the waters with one or two to see how the process goes. It would be nice to see everything come down in a container or on a direct flight with checked luggage. I am not crazy about doing a FFL to FFL transfer to the USVI. People handling the shipment would see the insured amount of the packages.
usvianon, what I did, before I moved here was that I had my weapons stored at the local firearm dealer, and did and FFL to FFL, after I recieved my permit to purchase (also means I can bring a gun on the island) I had the dealer ship the weapons to D&J, when the weapons arrived (3 days via fedex in my locked pelican case), they wrote down the serial numbers on a purchased weapon form, I took that form t the VIPD, they put the serial numbers on my card, I then took that card back to D&J and wala! I had my weapons on island the legal way. I know it would have been easier to buy them from one of the local gas stations but hey it feels good doing things the right way. Be prepaired you do pay per weapon, I believe it is $50 per gun every 3 yrs, plus the fees at the police station, like the packet you need to fill out that cost $5, you will notice that the VIPD will nickle and dime you. But hey I didn't find the process that difficult. Good luck!
Asking other people to give info on their gun stories provides a marker ,to identify gun owners,...although you think your anonymous you really aren't .Please don't tell our friend your stories for your own safety........Usvianon....Be a big boy now and fend for yourself,you've been given plenty of advice ........so don't ask and don't tell applies here!8-)
Do not trust the VIPD or your VI lawyer. Believe that or you will lose your guns.
I wouldn't put it past these clowns down here to have posted this thread to find out who/may have these types of guns on island.Just a thought.The gun Narc?*-)
Poorthang - isn't interesting how things sometimes are what they are, and then some things are much different under the surface. It's funny I am usually the conspiracy theory guy... haha now I am creating a bit of a conspiracy theory. I personally don't use the internet for anything that I would not care for it to be public knowledge, and I would urge everybody to do the same. I would also tell you DO NOT use Facebook as it is essentially the biggest spy machine ever made. The amount of data that can be gleaned out of it is enormous.
I just wish you'd leave the damned arsenal where it is and forget about bringing it here ...
Maybe a well armed militia would solve a few problems here. It seems that restricting gun ownership is not. Kennesaw GA requires all homeowners to have a firearm. And in Texas it is legal to shoot someone for breaking into your home, or stealing your horse.
Maybe if the criminals had a little more to worry about the crime rate would go down.
Kennesaw GA requires all homeowners to have a firearm.
True, but not enforced. Plenty of people who live in Kennesaw do not have guns in their home.
Last thing this island needs is a "gun collection". You are only going to make your life here much more complicated and yes you will be target to be robbed at best.
