    Permit process started

    Just applied last week for license, that would allow unlimited range access and weapons and ammo, counting down patiently 120 days. Expensive but oh well :-)

    Received permit today, now going to make appointment for orientation to learn all the proper laws pertaining to P.R and to get my membership for shooting club.

    Also forgot to mention, now living here permanently.

    Why do you need a license just to go to a shooting range?

    Will you be applying for a carry permit? I'm curious if you can get one now that a court said that you don't need to prove "cause" or "need" under Heller.

    Yes I applied for the carry portion, just received it today, 90 days after applying for it and paying up the wazoo :-) had to go and be approved by Tribunal
    just in case someone is curious it is concealed only no open carry unless you are on the job.meaning one that requires you to carry openly.

    Can you cite the laws that require concealment? It would be interesting to compare it to other states.

    This was cut and pasted from site below information, and exactly as the paper given to me with my license.

    http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/puertorico.pdf

    (1) The firearms may be borne, carried, and transported in a hidden or non- ostentatious manner.
    (2) Unless the licensee also holds a permit to carry weapons, the weapon may carried by the licensee on his/her person; and that to be able to transport said weapon without a permit to carry, the weapon must be unloaded and transported inside a closed case whose contents are not visible and which may not be in plain sight. Provided, That in the case of private security guards who hold a permit to carry, are uniformed and in the exercise of their duties, they may carry the weapon in plain sight.

    Increased permitting recently?

    I live in PR and am there for six months or more usually. Got stuck in PA to repair Sandy damage so I am a little out of touch. After the recent PR court decisions, has there been a lot more licensing there? I have a carry permit in PA but never seriously thought about tryingit in PR because of the complex and expensive process.

    What definition of ostentatious? Because socially, it just means:

    adjective
    characterized by vulgar or pretentious display; designed to impress or attract notice.
    Typical, normal open carry is not ostentatious.

    Was doing business in PR about 10 years ago - we were in the old town and noticed the drivers of a mercedes of some local islanders had Uzis on harnesses under their coats - nice place to visit during the day.
