After re-reading your post I think the short answer is that you'll never recoup the cost of almost any gunsmithing unless the smith is widely acknowledged as a master (and the actual work performed proves to be of top quality), you have provenance of the work and the modifications are highly sought after.

From my perspective, once a gun has been permanently modified it is almost never worth as much as it would be if left unmodified.  What are you planning to do with this shotgun?  If you want to use it regularly then spend the $ and enjoy your customized gun.  If you are looking for maximum ROI then sell it as is.  Look at the auction sites and see what brings the most $ on comparable examples.  I think you'll find that after the overall condition of the firearm that original boxes, paperwork and factory-supplied accessories bring the most money.

I think that part of the premium paid on a bone-stock firearm is due to the potential new owner's anticipation of customizing the gun to his/her needs or desires--you can probably find more than a few examples in this forum where someone is selling a lightly-used gun with a lengthy and highly specific list of mods and/or parts that have been added to their firearm.  I would venture to guess that they will never recoup their "investment" if or when they sell it.  Instead, they have enjoyed shopping for the parts and accessories for their new toy.

First, make sure one's armchair is nice and comfy...
An airweight .38 in the pocket beats any 9mm/.45/.44/.500 in the glove box or under the seat every time, just sayin'  :shaka:

You don't want to cause the sheeple to panic because of an your waistband, do you?  (there's your quote, Hound  >:D)

Always good to see the young ones carry on the traditions  :shaka:
CCW--probably a LW pocket rocket of some sort (airweight J frame, Beretta 21, Keltec .32 comes to mind)--compatible with t shirt & shorts EDW.

Open carry??? probably wouldn't

My GUESS is that when they email you the PTA you will then need to use your personal password to access the document and print it out.  If you send in an online registration HPD will email you a password (one that they've created) to access the document.

Private sale.
Does the buyer need to take the signed permit (signed by seller at transfer) back to HPD to register handgun?
YES, NOW you (the buyer) must bring the signed permit (handgun) or fill out the long gun form IF you are doing a PRIVATE PARTY (non-FFL) transaction.  I'm actually not sure if you MUST bring the firearm in for inspection--I'll have to ask the next time I'm there (since things seem to change everytime).

LOL--I was just going to post the same suggestion as above, then saw that I made the suggestion nearly a year ago and as far as I can tell, nothing has been done.  Oh well, at least I tried... :shaka:

FWIW I was at HPD on Monday and overheard one of the officers telling a guy that they're swamped with applications and the email PTAs might be delayed a day or so.

The first time I tried to find Brent's place I ended up driving past it 4-5 times, lol!  You turn onto Bannister STREET from Dillingham, go past BF TILE (can't miss it) then turn LEFT onto Bannister PLACE.  Drive down to the T intersection, turn LEFT and drive past a couple of homes/apartments.  Dead ahead you'll see a small parking lot that is chain link fenced in.  That's BNR.  Be sure to call ahead so they know you're coming.

Brent has some ammo and accessories but his main business is FFL transfers and on occaision he'll get consigned/estate guns to sell.  Best to call and let him know what you're looking for.   :shaka:

Tink udda keeds!  Dey get bullit-proof backpacks, wat--dey now stay one criminal?  :shaka:
Has anyone done this in a private seller transaction ?
Did you just leave your permit with the seller?
Did the seller just trust you to mail in the permit ?
Not really interested in theory. Just anyone who’s actually done it.
Read my posts--I sold a few pistols and rifles at the gun show and had a combination of online and in person registrations.
How do the FFL dealers feel about having to go to HPD to turn in the signed permit when the buyer wants to register online?  Are they charging more?

The LGS that gets my business doesn't charge for registering online; it's part of the cost of doing business in Paradise.  They do not offer FFL services (as in bringing in guns purchased online).

The one FFL dealer who does bring in firearms from the internet/mainland does charge a separate fee if the customer wants to register their handgun online.  From what I understand, he's one of a very few who will bring in firearms from the mainland.  I have used his services recently and I consider his fees to be very reasonable.
How’s everyone handling the signed permit ?
Or is everyone going through an FFL ?

If it's a private transfer, see my prior response above.

AFAIK, no LGS/FFL dealer will broker (or will bother with the time and expense of brokering) the transfer in a private transaction, since it is unnecessary.  You just have to know (and trust) whomever you are purchasing a handgun from.  A detailed receipt or record of transaction is always a good idea, both for the purchaser and the seller.
How does turning in the signed permit work ?
Particularly private sale.
Seller sends registered mail ?
Do they need to receive the signed permit before completing the registration?

If the purchaser of the pistol wants to register it in person at HPD he/she takes the completed permit to HPD and turns it in at the registration window.

If the purchaser wants to register the handgun online, the seller provides the purchaser with a copy of the completed paperwork (or the purchaser takes pictures of the paperwork) and the SELLER is required to take the paperwork back to HPD and turn it in.  LGS/FFL dealers I've dealt with take their paperwork in once a week.  For the pistols I've sold recently, I had to turn in the psperwork, usually within 48 hours of the transfer. 

IDK anything about sending in the papers via registered mail, the PO is more of a hassle than HPD.
