comply-almost all businesses suggest that if you get robbed at all, to give them what they want. the other night some guy tried to steal a girls jeep-she said no and got shot in the legs.
better to be alive than to have stuff. your life is worth more

Run,(preferrably in a ducked down zig zag pattern:D) comply, or shoot to kill! Just resisting will get you killed.

Edit: These guys had 7 guns. Comply!!!!

Did anyone read the report a week or so ago when some young hoodlum attempted to steal a vehicle from its driver and was shot (I think he may have been killed) by the man whose car he was after? Apparently he demanded the car, the driver said no, the thug reached for something under his jacket and the driver promptly shot him.

As far as where these thugs learn to shoot, I don't have an answer for that but it does remind me of a pretty bizarre shooting MANY years ago in the vicinity of Sugar Estate post office in broad daylight. Two juveniles with handguns decided to go at it after school right on the sidewalk. They were within 20 feet of each other and started blazing away at each other. As close as they were, not one of them sustained even a graze (and, thank goodness, nobody else was hurt either). Sharp shooters not. It was shortly after this happened that more stringent security measures were put into place at schools to prevent weapons being carried in backpacks and in clothing.

I used to fire my guns out front of my home (once my brother was walking home from school and the guy living below us asked my brother, "do you have an arsenal up there?" ) or Picara (Megans) point or sometimes on Sundays we would wander through the junk yard firing at junks, and go to the back of the dump where the police firing range was (not sure if it is still there.)

I would guess if the guns are coming in illegally the bullets are not far behind.

Do u have to show permits for purchasing a bullets in the VI? I can't remember for sure but I think I had to show my CC when I bought bullets and also at the range here when I went shooting. I did however practice a lot way out in the desert here in AZ.

Once (1987) I brought down, from Connecticut, a stainless steel Ruger Mini-14 along with 1100 bullets for it, plus another 300 bullets for my two .38s in a suitcase. I have a very close friend who brought 38 handguns down from Texas, in his suitcase.

From what I understand a lot of guns come from PR today.

I should mention that a local drug enforcement cop (he is no long on the force, from what I understand he does security for a hotel on STJ) took that Mini-14 from me and sold it to someone I know. It's a long convoluted story, but I was never arrested or charged over this incident.

On STX you can buy ammunition from:
a) D&J Shooting Gallery
b) Clayton Perry is a licensed gun dealer at 513-2529

and there may be other dealers
