    Checking the Resources Tab under Permit by State you find a lot of great info. Puerto Rico Concealed Carry Permit Information PR doesn't recognize any States permits. PR may Issue to Residents Only. Follow the other links for other info.

    EDIT: The NRA-ILA link is bad. Here is the link to PR gun laws. http://www.nraila.org/GunLaws/Federal/Read.aspx?id=57

  3. thanks guys, I made a longer post (with my findings) but added a photo, so now I need to wait for the mod to approve it.

    Pretty much what I found out is that in Puerto Rico owning a gun is a privilege not a right. The whole process to get the permit takes 4-6 months (and $500)

    PR and Guam are not safe places to be, they are GFZ and we know that means free fire zones for criminals and terrorists.

    Living in a gate community just makes you a target for criminals, kidnappers and terrorists.

    That dream job can be a nightmare.

    When I was in San Juan, all the cops were paired and all wearing their bullet proof vests walking up and down the streets. That was my first clue to not walk anywhere alone...

    Puerto Rico is a Commonwealth and has their own government and laws. I don't believe your second amendment rights follow you there. I was in San Juan December '08 to Feb '09 and again for 3 weeks this past July flying fom PR to Santo Domingo and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. We stayed in the Carolina area by the El San Juan Hotel and Casino which is the tourist zone and patrolled heavily by the tourist zone police. I never felt unsafe even driving around the island - to the back country, up to the rain forest. The police drive around with their overhead emergency lights on day and night. There was one "hit" while I was there, about 4 blocks from out condo - 3 drug dealers were "permanently retired" in a Walgreen's parking lot at 5 AM, probably by rival dealers. But hey, sounds like the streets of hometown USA.

    I was careful when I traveled and was always aware of my surrounding, with an escape plan if needed.
