for all you retired or active law enforcement have to find out if HR 218 applies in us territories to "carry"
“9. U.S. Virgin Islands: This territory of United States does not recognize or accept any identification issued by another state. LEOs should not bring their concealed firearms with them if they visit this island. They have their own system to issue firearms licenses. They do issue permits to carry firearms to retired or active LEOs but all LEOs must meet their own requirements.”
Sorry, but if you feel that coming to the US Virgin Islands on vacation necessitates your bringing a firearm then coming here is probably not a good idea!
I have to agree!!! Spent a week on STX with my BFF girlfriend, drove all over the island (stopping at several 'locals' bars to ask directions (with map in hand) - we got lost a lot - LOL). In our defense, the roads aren't marked well, if at all.... The locals were nothing but friendly and we never felt unsafe. If you think you need to 'carry', please go someplace else...
I agree just asked as a matter of law and curiosity .....most not all of the islands we visited were safe
STX is generally safe for vacationers but is not Utopia. Use common sense, stay out of dark alleys, don't get lost in the housing projects, don't flash money or expensive jewelry, don't leave stuff locked in the car, etc. and don't forget the good morning/afternoon/evening greetings.
