Hey I recently moved to RI and have already got my Blue Card and currently own two pistols and a bolt action rifle. I am looking to expand my collection to include an AR-15 and was wondering if they are legal to purchase in RI and if they are what steps do I have to do to obtain my right to own.

yes they are legal to own with all the standard exclusions; minor, felon, moron, etc. However, you may find the supply is VERY limited, pre election, there was a run on all the black rifles.

Just find one you like and give the owner some money, wait 7 days [sad2], pick it up and go have fun with it. [wink]

Last time I was at D&L they had a couple, but as stated the supply is getting low. If you can't seem to find one locally, you can buy one in NH at a gun shop, or you can find one in MA and have it shipped to your favorite RI shop.

Dave's Discount Guns in Warwick had a couple AR's in stock when I was there last weekend, if I remember correctly.

I've yet to check that place out. To be honest I have only been in 4 shops in RI.

D&L - whom I have bought my M70 from
Bullseye - whom I have only bout mags and ammo from
Competition Shooting - John seems to be a great guy, I just haven't had money to buy anything from him yet
Santurri - Well his old shop was in Pawtucket. I used him for a transfer or two.

The last time I was in Foster Bear Arms they had a few AR's. They are a little pricey though and asking if they will come down a little always got me a NO. They apparently seem to have an abundance of consignment firearms since thay is why I am told they cannot move on price.
Big Bear doesnt usually stock them either. They have more hunting rifles and shotguns although they are always willing to order you something.
