Thread: Puerto Rico (staying 3 months)

  1. Puerto Rico (staying 3 months)

    Hey guys, I was offered a dream job in Puerto Rico... I'll be here for 3 months... although, it can be extended a year more.

    The day that I arrived to Puerto Rico we had to take a different route home, because there was a shooting in the main highway.
    From what the locals told me: two cars forced another car to stop and then some guys with Ak-47s blasted the vehicle "during the day". According to the locals it was a rare site, because most of the shooting happen at night (like that makes it better )

    It seems that all the stories that I hear from the locals involved corruption or shootings from drug wars.

    I'm living in a gated community that looks like Disneyland... I got unrestricted view to the sea and walking distance from the beach. I also see security vehicles driving around all the time. Unfortunately, it's becoming more and more common for outsiders to break into the homes.

    I'll be traveling to the states tomorrow for a week and I was wondering if bringing a gun on cargo to puerto rico was the same as from state to state. I was also wondering if my florida CCW was of any use in PR.

    Thanks


    oh... and some pics the place I'm staying

    I know nothing about Puerto Rican gun law but you may want to read this article...

    I would contact local law enforcement for their take on things before doing anything.

  4. Very nice, but is it really paradise if you cannot carry

    I've been there a few times, and loved it. I did hear that you guys are getting some pretty serious volcanic ash covering some parts of the island. Is that where you are?

    My brother was there and was aggressively followed by a car with a number of younger males in it. He was able to eventually ditch them but it took him about 25 minutes. I think you're wise to figure out how you can carry there.

    When I was there I didn't have any problems but there are definitely some rough people and rough areas.

  8. thanks guys!
    I called this guys: THE LAWMAN GUN SHOP/PAGINA PRINCIPAL
    from this thread

    and this is what I found out:

    In PR, having a gun is not a right, but a privilege... They need a whole bunch of stuff (which I'm not surprise, after finding out how much **** they needed to validate my Architectural license).

    It's a lengthy process, (about 4-6 months) and they charge $500 to do the job . That is to own a gun and carry.... so i can't even own a gun and leave it at home

    If I find any more info, I'll post it here

    Haven't heard anything about that...

    I was offered an office downtown... I gracefully decline, and said I would rather work from home (pretty much all I need is a computer, scanner, and a plotter). I don't usually like the idea of working from home, but I had to do an exception...

    Yeah... and that is why I'm doing a little research before taking my gun to PR.

    Wow, I would have been scared shitless, I'm glad I can speak Spanish though...

    Nice joint!!

    The only thing I heard about PR was from someone who said that, at night?...don't stop for red lights. Just keep driving right on through, otherwise you may be putting yourself in jeopardy.

    Don't know about the gun issue, but I tend not to ask questions I might not really want to hear the answers to.

    Nice pad! I know nothing about PR gun laws. Call local / state law enforcement.
