    This isn't really relevant as it applies to LEO's.


    RI doesn't require "training" though you do have to show that you can hit a target by qualifying with a caliber equal or greater than what you wish to carry:
    § 11-47-15 Proof of ability required for license or permit.

    No person shall be issued a license or permit to carry a pistol or revolver concealed upon his or her person until he or she has presented certification as prescribed in § 11-47-16 that he or she has qualified with a pistol or revolver of a caliber equal to or larger than the one he or she intends to carry, that qualification to consist of firing a score of one hundred ninety-five (195) or better out of a possible score of three hundred (300) with thirty (30) consecutive rounds at a distance of twenty-five (25) yards on the army "L" target, firing "slow" fire. The "slow" fire course shall allow ten (10) minutes for the firing of each of three (3) ten (10) shot strings.

    History of Section.
    (P.L. 1959, ch. 75, § 1; P.L. 1975, ch. 278, § 1.)

    You need to be qualified by a RI certified instructor. You don't need to take the class, but you need to shoot the course and have the instructor fill out and sign the form. You also can only carry up to the caliber that you qualify with.

    On RIFOL, there are recent posts saying that the AG is now referring out of state applicants to local towns. The towns vary widely in policies and many do not comply with RI state law. Rifol.org/forums has good information on the process. Some people have waited over a year.

    As to the OP, you can pass through RI as long as you do not stop. At least that's what the law says. A stop for gas or a bathroom is likely not a problem. I've driven through from Attleboro to New Bedford on 95/195 several times with no problem.

    Yes, that is correct. Just don't stop in RI for anything other than a traffic light.

    Wrong, any NRA Instructor can qualify the person.

    There are a lot of threads here about getting a permit from R while being out of state. The search button is your friend.

    Yes, or conceivably something like CT if you happen to be licensed there.

    Rather than an opinion, I offer the statute in question (RIGL sec. 11-47-8):

    "No person shall, without a license or permit issued as provided in §§ 11-47-11, 11-47-12 and 11-47-18, carry a pistol or revolver in any vehicle or conveyance or on or about his or her person whether visible or concealed, except in his or her dwelling house or place of business or on land possessed by him or her or as provided in §§ 11-47-9 and 11-47-10. The provisions of these sections shall not apply to any person who is the holder of a valid license or permit issued by the licensing authority of another state, or territory of the United States, or political subdivision of the state or territory, allowing him or her to carry a pistol or revolver in any vehicle or conveyance or on or about his or her person whether visible or concealed, provided the person is merely transporting the firearm through the state in a vehicle or other conveyance without any intent on the part of the person to detain him or herself or remain within the state of Rhode Island."
