Just found out from Devin at Bushido Arms that you can download the 4473 fillable PDF form off the ATF website. Fill out before you get to the Gun Shop or FFL. Tried to include a link but no skills.

Got this at Costco Iwilei, twenty bucks. Realized they would be great for storing reloading supplies and parts, went back and bought two more.

Does anyone know what "Pilot - Firearm Registration-1 firearm" is? I just went on the appointment site and there are four appointments for Wednesday, April 7 available. The "Firearm Registration-1 firearm" had zero.
General Discussion / Koko Head Action Bays Won't Open Until Tier 4
« on: February 28, 2021, 10:16:52 PM »
Email from HRA;

Aloha Everyone,

We have just been informed that the action bays at Kokohead Shooting Complex will not be open for use by clubs until Oahu is in Tier 4.  We had previously been told that we would be allowed to use the Action Bays when Oahu was in Tier 3. Please contact Mayor Blagiardi and Laura Thielen, Director of the Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation, to express your concern and disappointment with the continued closure of the action bays.

General Discussion / I Got Flagged by HPD for Too Many Appointments
« on: February 16, 2021, 10:05:09 PM »
I got a call from a Lieutenant in the Firearms Division because I had too many appointments for pta and registration. The officer said because of the complaints of not being able to get an appointment, no shows, people selling appointments, etc..., they will allow two appointments for pta and two appointments for registration per person for each month. The officer was really cool about it and told be to cancel any excess appointments I have. He said there are a lot of people flagged.

Firearms and Accessories / Barrel Contours
« on: August 01, 2020, 09:42:12 PM »
I am planning to order a custom 24", 308 barrel (Criterion "Remage") from Northland Shooters Supply for a Remington 700 single shot action. This will be used mostly at Koko Head, so 100 yards, with an occasional 300 yard range on private land, no hunting. I already have a 700 5R in 308. I was planning to order the bull barrel contour, possibly fluted, but was wondering about the other contours offered; sporter, heavy sporter, light varmit, MTU(?) and light, standard and heavy palma. What are reasons to consider these other contours?
General Discussion / Discharging a Firearm on Private Property
« on: September 28, 2019, 03:25:50 PM »
I had discussions today at the gun show with Hunters Ed, HRA and HIFCO with different answers. Can someone post an actual law that states it is illegal to discharge a firearm on private residential property within the City and County of Honolulu . I'm not so great at looking up these things but what I could find was discharging a firearm toward a populated area or roadway is reckless endangering. I do know the projectile cannot leave the property and there is a noise ordinance limiting decibels and duration. I looked at previous threads about this, which also had conflicting opinions, but no post contained the actual worded law that states it is illegal to discharge a firearm on private residential property within the City and County of Honolulu.

I wasn't old enough to care, but one of my eighth grade teachers made him out to be a great President, and this was after he got impeached.
Well, for a few more weeks anyway and then it will be Lt. Colonel Oliver North.
Reloading / Anyone here load 9mm with .357 bullets?
« on: May 07, 2018, 10:13:59 PM »
I know it's done. The reason I am asking is I really like the MGHP .357, 125 grain bullets out of my .357 so I was thinking of ordering the 9mm 124 gr. MGHP bullets for my VP9 and Colt 9mm 1911.  I tried loading a couple .357s in 9mm cases, the cannelure sits above the case. It would be nice if could use the same bullet for two calibers.
Reloading / Read My Primers Please
« on: July 31, 2017, 09:54:20 PM »
This is my second batch of 308 reloads. The rifle is a Remington 700 with 26" heavy barrel. The cases are Kaleo Arms processed brass, CCI primers, Sierra 150 grain Game King Boat Tail bullets and Varget. The unfired rounds have 46 grains Varget (ran out of time to shoot), then 45.5, 45, 44.5 and 44 grains. There was at least one round in each load that the primers flattened with square edges (top row). The same thing happened on my first reloads so I wrote the powder charge on each case so I am sure I didn't mix up the charges. Is this normal, I thought the flattening and square edges happens when getting to the max charge.
Reviews / Midway
« on: January 19, 2017, 08:18:08 PM »
Today I received my third order from Midway since November which all included some heavy boxes of bullets (heads  ;)) . The orders all took advantage of their "free", ten dollars for Hawaii  >:( , shipping. The bullets are actually excluded from the "free" shipping but the on sale die sets (and other items) were not so the bullets within the order shipped "free".The orders were all shipped the same day the orders were placed, the order I received today I placed this past Tuesday morning, and were sent UPS second day which I received in three to four days, well packed. There has been a few unsatisfactory post for Midway a few months ago and at the time I had similar experiences, usually a three week wait to receive my order. Things changed?
