sounds like we have a new White House Press Secretary

Yeah.  Seems like she got her training from a Tech Support company.

She hears a few nouns and a verb, then searches on them to read the scripted answer for a close facsimile of the question asked.

She's demonstrated superb reading abilities, if not English comprehension.

Sig won the pistol contracts. Now the rifle and LMG.

Seems fishy?

You mean the government is actually choosing the best design and function over political and financial concerns?

Yeah, that's weird. 
Those folks need to get a job...or a life....preferably both.
Then maybe they won't be so mad at the world.

Too old for Boy Scouts, so they created their own "club?"

So, are you justifying throwing insults and personal attacks to people who post something that you personally or emotionally don't agree with?

I'm responding to YOUR insult to all military -- even though you tried to make it about one military member.

You have a right to express your opinion of the military, but when you include us all, you get our responses, too.

I'm not justifying his insults nor yours.  I'm merely responding to an attack on all military -- whether or not you intended it that way.  Kissinger's quote (which has never been confirmed nor denied BTW) was general in nature.  The term "military man" can only be construed as a generalization.

Looks like we gotta practice shooting for the head.

Center mass doesn't cut it anymore.

That was being taught at Front Sight when I attended.  2 shots to the thoracic cavity within 2 seconds.  If the threat isn't stopped, then put at least one in the Cranial-Ocular cavity.

Reasons why someone might not break off an attack after 2 shots to the "center mass":

- Adrenaline
- Drugs
- Rounds didn't cause enough damage
- Rounds may have missed bone or vital organs
- Clothing may have slowed the rounds or prevented proper expansion of the rounds
- Many other factors

So, don't pause to consider why the aggressor didn't stop after 2 hits.  Just change your point of aim to a different area.  Smaller target, but a better chance of immediate results.
It is all I need to come up with.

Me and another poster were discussing the general topic and you couldn't stand it apparently. For some unknown reason we had to talk about some specific organization just because you wanted it that way.
You didn't start the thread and you don't own the forum so perhaps you can guess where I would tell you to put your suggestion....Go ahead and ask if you can't figure it out.

Cool story, bro.

I don't know why I even bother when you're always a week or more behind the discussion.

I was not referring to anyone outside of the person I was responding to.

That was not my intention and I apologize to all those who took offense.

I chose my words carefully for the intended recipient, who initially threw personal insults at my direction.

Interesting how you bring up generalizations as they might offend some members on this forum.  If I recall, there have been many questionable personal judgments, character attacks, and racial and ethnic slurs made by forum members through the years and currently.  Many rightfully addressed and censored by the forum moderators.  However, although I am not one of their adherents, the incessant demonization of democrats and liberals is just one example of generalizations that are routinely made on this forum that ignores the possibility that some forum members are democrats or liberals.  If you wish to point out an error of judgement on my part, please come out and point out such errors to those forum members whose statements similarly might offend others on this forum in the future.

Maybe try to void posting quotes from other people which you direct at an individual as some ham-fisted passive-aggressive tactic meant to deliver an insult while attempting to dodge responsibility for the insult.

Kissinger was speaking of all military members.  You used that quote.  Doesn't matter if you used it toward a single individual.

Maybe next time, use a quote from Hitler about all Jews toward an individual Jew you dislike.  There's no difference.  A generalized insult doesn't transform into a directed insult just because you quoted it in a given context.

It is what it is.  Spinning it isn't going to change it.

As I understand it the Honolulu Police have quite good training certifications so I wonder if this is as a whole or or how they are measuring that.

"As I understand it..."

"how they are measuring that"  (training requirements)

I guess you didn't bother to click the link to the full report.

A year ago, he threatened to shoot up his school.

Obviously the required waiting period works.

If you disagree with the use of US empire, show how it is not an empire.

As for the "clown" remark, so says the "military man who is just a dumb, stupid animal to be used as a pawn in foreign policy", as quoted by Henry Kissinger.   :shaka:

So you're now insulting all who served in the military now?

Doesn't matter that you used a roundabout quote that's never been factually verified as having been spoken by Kissinger.  You posted the words, and you directed it to robtmc in the context of his military service.  That would apply to all of us who served.

Maybe you should read what you're typing several times before submitting.  You might be generalizing in a way that includes many members of this forum -- not just your one intended target.

BTW, Kissinger also served in the military.  So there's that.   :wtf:

In a private sale does the seller have to notify Hpd with a written document? Long gun.

Dr Jones

Yep -- within 48 hours of the transfer.

Take the time to read through the entire Firearms statute.  It'll be worth your time.  You may find answers to questions you haven't thought of yet.

General Discussion / Re: Hunter safety education course

"I recommend getting the NRA course -- if not instead of Hunter's Ed, at least shortly afterward.  The Hunter's Ed course doesn't include any hands-on live-fire training."

I have always thought that was a big mistake here.  Because I has lost papers in moving here, I had to take the Hawaii hunter safety course.
I've been licensed to hunt since 12 yrs of age, so I was a little PO'ed, but rules are rules. 
I thought that the lack of a demonstration in the actual safe use and firing of a firearm was unusual for a Safety course.
But this is Hawaii,  Logic doesn't apply here, just feelings.

Before the pandemic, in-person courses were always 100% reserved for months in advance.  It became common knowledge that many sign-ups will be no-shows -- the theory being anti-gun and anti-hunting zealots trying to interfere with people getting training in order to hunt and buy guns.

Due to the wait time for an open spot, most handgun buyers opted for the NRA course, which although $150-$200+, they could get trained in about a month give or take.

Now that the Hunter's Ed course is available completely online (before only the study portion was available online -- still had to show up to take the test IIRC), I'd be curious how many handgun buyers are opting for Hunter's Ed certificate.

Anyway, the whole permit process is FUBAR. 
"Nonviolent Army" is an oxymoron ...  unless you're French.   :rofl:

Why call yourself an Army at all?  It's not as if they have a massive membership.
I'm 100% skeptical of anything that is stated by the biden administration and whatever spews from biden's mouth.

Liars, Liars, their pants are all on fires.

They say "oops" as if they made an error but we all know they are all full of shiite.  Or shiff.  All the same.

Yeah.  Some people like to repeat the phrase, "Don't assign malice to that which can be explained by incompetence."

Too many time, as in this case, the people sending out the Tweet are either too stupid/lazy to do 1 minute of verification before making an official White House claim, or they believe we are too stupid and/or lazy to know the difference.  Either way, it scares me that these are the people wanting to control "disinformation."

It's good to have the local gun laws for your state bookmarked for occasional reference.  If I were your friend in that situation, I would have pulled out my phone and educated them.  Maybe that would save the next person who asked them from getting a wrong answer.

§134-2  Permits to acquire.
(g)  Effective July 1, 1995, no person shall be issued a permit under this section for the acquisition of a
pistol or revolver unless the person, at any time prior to the issuance of the permit, has completed:

    (1)  An approved hunter education course as authorized under section 183D-28;

§183D-28  Hunter education program.

Tracking for my package says it arrived at OGC today. Any input on whether I wait for them to call me or I call them ? It's Saturday afternoon I'm anxious to go get the serial number for the paperwork first thing Monday visit to HPD.
Sometimes the seller fails to put your name and phone number on the package, and OGC doesn't recognize it as a transfer until they open the box.  By then, they might have waited a couple of days to open it after other transfer packages they received.

I see inspection periods usually begin "from" the day of delivery, for example

I believe "from" means "including the day it was received, whereas "after" would be the 3 days following receipt.  If you're having scheduling problems, work that issue out with the seller before the window closes.

Since you mentioned getting the serial number for the paperwork, I assume you need to apply for a handgun permit?  If so, then go check out the item ASAP if you have an inspection window.     

Call OGC and inform them that you need to inspect the firearm by a specific date if that's the case.  Work with them to schedule your inspection and get the receipt/specs for the permit app.

Waiting silently for OGC to call could be the worst decision if there's a problem with the firearm.

Does the online hunter safety education course satisfy the requirement to obtain a handgun?


Yes.  It's a cheap/free training option vs. the NRA safety course.

I recommend getting the NRA course -- if not instead of Hunter's Ed, at least shortly afterward.  The Hunter's Ed course doesn't include any hands-on live-fire training.
Biden's White House continues to blatantly lie ... even about facts that are transparently FALSE to anyone with an IQ above 80.

They pushed out a Tweet on May 12th, stating how there was "no [COVID] vaccine available" until after Biden was sworn in as Resident.

The next day, they "corrected" their Tweet, but only after Twitter and the media blew up over such an obvious disinformation attempt -- saying whatever sounds good for Biden with no regard for the actual truth.

Given that they included that "non-factual factoid" in a Tweet that was clearly meant to praise the economic "growth" seen under Biden's watch, I think most people are smart enough to figure it out.

If they can't get the little things right, how can we trust them when they spout off statistics and results that contradict what we are seeing in our daily lives?

I'd give them the benefit of the doubt had these nuggets not already existed on Twitter which totally destroyed their narrative about vaccines.  BTW, Biden received not just the vaccine, but ALSO A BOOSTER PRIOR to his inauguration!

Pretty much the whole baby formula problem in a nutshell -- including why Biden's administration caused it and is taking actions that assist non-US citizens first.
