I have my CCW and I think i can hit the barn door. I also have it in MA, CT, NH, FL and my C&R FFL. If you do not have a good reason the AG will most likely deny it. The police chief in the town you live in SHALL issue you a permit, but most of them tell you to take a walk. Read the state statues (spelling?) on this, if you have a CCW in any other state, then any police cheif can issue you a permit. Rhode Island and most of are next door states S*ck about CCW. Contact Citizens' Rights Action League of RI - www.cralri.com - they might be able to help you and read the measage boards to see how other people are making out. Remember it is RI and it helps to know someone.Fellow Rhode Islanders,
What does one have to do to get a conceal carry permit in this nasty state? Any advice? The AG reserves the right to approve or deny applications at his discretion. In RI, they claim the conceal carry permit is a privilege, not a right.
The funny thing is (actually pathetic), I have friends who were granted the permit because of who they know, and these people couldn't hit a barn door from 6 feet away. They are totally firearm ignorant. My guess is they didn't even have to take the proficiency test at the range either. This burns my butt. . ..
Hello Pockets,New to the hk world just bought my first clone PTR 91 and i also happen to be from RI. A little late to the thread looking at the post dates but I am going to start looking into carry permits a little more I have a good friend who started working in the AG's office recently.
