See this document:

Basically, to have the gun permit in USVI, you have to show evidence that your life is in danger.

thats only if you want a carry conceal wanderer.

having a home use gun is easier to get.

The documents lists the requirements for the "license to carry" and the "license to possess". I don't see anything that mentions the relaxed requirements for the "home use".

Seems pretty clear to me.

S485-4 is specifically talking about "carry".
S485-4 specifically talks about fearing death or great injury.

S485-5 is about "possess"
This passage speaks nothing about fearing death or great injury.

not sure where the confusion is from.

One interesting thing I see is that a home use shotgun is the easiest to get.
But a home use gun AND sports use is about the second easiest to get but it does not distinguish between handguns and shotguns.

Personally I think it's irresponsible to own a gun for home protection that you do not practice with.

I couldn't agree more.

Luckily there are a few ranges here.
