General Discussion / Re: Turning in old permit
« on: April 24, 2021, 08:12:54 AM »
I currently have a permit to acquire (long gun) that expires July 24th.  So let's say I happen upon something I like at a GS so I buy it on July 23rd.

How am I going to register it within the time the permit expires?  I never thought the registration people at HPD would expect someone to register within the expiration limits of the permit when registration appointments are hard to get and up to 90 days in advance.

Showing the expired permit to acquire at the time of registration should be enough to show the firearm was purchased legally.  The paperwork from the LGS along with the receipt can be cross checked by the registration guys.

I never came across this scenario since covid.  Last year I bought a rifle but when I applied for the PTA I went ahead and booked an appointment to register about 2 weeks later, just in case.  Turned out I was able to use it otherwise I would have cancelled.

Agreed. Is it not clear or stated anywhere that you are allowed to register a rifle with an expired permit.

General Discussion / Turning in old permit

Scenario:  you purchase a rifle on the whim with a valid permit and did not get a registration time before your permit expires. You got a permit to acquire date months prior because you knew your permit would expire. You turn in your expired permit because they ask for it when you apply for a new permit.

I did not know you (supposedly) needed to register the rifle with the permit you purchased it with (specifically from a gun store, since HPD would not be able to tell if it was a private party sale).

Lady who answered the phone at HPD was not very nice. She was saying that you needed to make a registration appointment FIRST and register your rifle before making an appointment for a new permit. Even if you already had an appointment to get a new permit prior to you expecting to buy a new gun. I told her this system is a mess since we can’t register on time and she said it was not and it is VERY CLEAR. (I don’t know of any instructions anywhere saying that  you are supposed to register your rifle with the permit you bought it with) She said the online times open the same time everyday and I should’ve got a registration time prior to getting a new permit. However the registration times would be 3 months in advanced IF I was lucky enough to get one.  I was not willing to wait another 3 months to register my rifle and be without a valid permit during that time.

Luckily for me I was able to register my rifle a day prior to turning in my old permit so it worked out but I’m sure others had run into this problem. Open discussion.

Haven't personally used either.

Striechers has mixed reviews, mainly in the time it takes to fill orders.  They appear to have problems with their inventory system, causing backordered items to be ordered without letting the buyer know they are not in stock.

ProvenOutfitters has a Facebook account.  They have a reviews section that might be "filtered" by the business, so "grain of salt".

They show a rating of 4.7 out of 5.0.

Thanks for the info!  :shaka:

General Discussion / Gun / ammo store recommendations in Vegas?
« on: May 01, 2019, 08:57:46 PM »
I’ll be heading up to Vegas next week. Anyone got recommendations for good gun and ammo stores? Maybe even a store for bows? Preferably near the strip since we don’t have a rental car. Also willing to pick up stuff if anyone desperately needs something. Thanks in advance!

sad to see the solution to an active shooter is to train everyone to be helpless sheep.  just run and hide, very efficient...

Just be aware that Hawaiian Airlines's policy is different from TSA.

Ran into some trouble coming home from Maui. When I was flying to Maui, gate agent asked if there was ammo in the gun case and I told her “yes” and she said ok. Put on the “aft only” tag and that was the end of it. When checking in on Maui, the gate agents were arguing with each other on what was right and actually took my gun case off the belt before it went down the tunnel. Got the manager to come out and explain that they have stricter guidelines than the TSA. This resulted in me checking in a CARDBOARD box just for a box of ammo.

 I guess Hawaiian airlines thought it made sense or was “safer” to ship ammo in a cardboard box with nothing else in it rather than in a locked container. Their exception to having ammo in the same case as your firearm is if you’re law enforcement.
