Firearms and Accessories / Opinions on the Bushmaster ACR?
« on: January 02, 2015, 06:25:06 PM »
Happy new year 2A fam!

This is not a new gun on the block by any chance but was wondering if anyone has any first hand experience with the ACR and what their thoughts were. I saw a few threads here about a recall. This is a older generation, probably first gen ACR basic with the enhanced stock and hand guard. Thanks for your input!
General Discussion / Out of State pistol purchase from private party
« on: April 17, 2014, 04:45:54 PM »
I searched the forum for answers but I have some unanswered concerns that I hope to get resolved in this thread. Also if this thread belongs in the Legal and Activism section, mods please move the thread as appropriate. Thanks

So here is the situation:

I found a Pistol on that I would like to purchase. We (seller and myself) have agreed on a price but he is inquiring if my FFL will accept shipment from a non FFL. Meaning, he will send it directly to the FFL. First question is if anyone knows a FFL here that will accept that? [18 U.S.C. 1715, 922(a)(3), 922(a)(5) and 922 (a)(2)(A)] states that a non FFL can ship to a FFL but handguns are not "mailable"  by USPS and that a common or contract carrier must be used. Is that UPS and Fedex?  ???

Would it be easier to have it shipped to Oregon where I have a relative who can receive it as his and transfer it into my name when I get there next month then bring it back to Hawaii as out-of-state then register it? I can still purchase in Oregon as I have a Oregon driver's license.

Has anyone purchased a handgun from a forum or the like? How did you ensure you got the item after paying?

Sorry for all the questions, but I want to be squared away. Thank you for any info in advance!
General Discussion / Shooting mentor
« on: March 28, 2014, 08:28:25 AM »
hey guys, so I'm a novice/beginner shooter and although I've been into firearms for a while I lack alot of trigger time. When I do get the chance to go out to the range and practice I always think it'd be nice to have an experienced shooter to look to for advice and tips. My pops had firearms but I can only recall going shooting with him a handful of times so I didn't really have experience growing up either.

So my question for you folks is: how did you get introduced and taught how to shoot? For the guys who go to the range often, anyone care to play mentor? I think there's alot to be learned from the elder and more experienced and that's what this is all about. community building.  :shaka:
General Discussion / The ideal shooting range
« on: August 13, 2013, 01:03:50 PM »
Hawaii lacks a facility that allows for different shooting environments both indoor and outdoor. Most of us only use koko head and shoot down a "lane", which is for most people sufficient to keep their shooting skills up to par. However, for people interested in shooting under simulated stress without being in a real dispute is a far reality for us in Hawaii as far as I know. So with that being said, what are your guys' must haves for a shooting facility? I know there are alot of factors that limit the possibilities such as cost of real estate and the lack thereof, but we can all dream.

Legal and Activism / Legality of AR mags
« on: June 19, 2013, 12:18:19 PM »
Hey guys, I've done a search on this topic and found that there are opposing views regarding the legality of AR mags over the 10rd capacity. Does anyone know what is legal here in Hawaii?
One argument I've heard is that it is completely illegal to have AR mags over 10rds due to the fact that there are AR pistols.
Another argument is that AR mags with more than 10 rds is legal because AR pistols are illegal in Hawaii, making it NOT possible to have AR mags in pistols.
Another argument is that the definition of a pistol means the magazine is inserted into the grip of the firearm, therefore there is no such thing as a AR Pistol...

I understand that it is one of those grey areas but what gives? Anybody have some insight on this?
