Does anyone have any info on shipping a firearm to STT. Does anyone know of a federal fire arms dealer in STT that can take shipment of the firearm?
Id like to get all info needed to do this, if anyone knows?

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I'd assume looking for gun shops would be a good start, but this should help also:

You might want to utilize the search engine on this forum as there have been several threads on the subject and the procedure pretty much detailed on more than one occasion.

If I had to guess, I'd say 96% of the guns in the VI were brought in illegally. And that's using "price is right rules".

I thought gun possession in St. Thomas was illegal? Well other than for the cops that is. I also agree, that most guns on St. Thomas were imported illegally.

Well I guess you can own a firearm in the VI. I found this: http://cd.textfiles.com/group42/WEAPONS/LAWS/VISL.HTM

You can get a permit only if they are in the mood to issue one.
