Someone taught me a neat "trick".

Keep a $100 bill in your wallet where you can see it but don't spend it.  Under a see-through window for licenses is a good spot.

Knowing you have at least $100 on you means you'll never feel broke.

It's worked well for many years, and I always have an emergency Benjamin if i'm ever in a tight spot.

It's an even better idea now that few people carry cash in favor of plastic.

Add in the face of HIFICO whos always on the news.  Just wait till a MDA member recognizes him in the street.  There should be a penalty for false reporting someone who's not doing anything wrong.  See my 911 asking questions like "is he pointing it at anyone". Because we have seen via testimony that at least 1 person will yell and keep yelling GUN GUN GUN like how she sees on TV.

The good news is, there are so many video cameras around now (including cell phones), there's a good chance the situation is captured for verification of the 911 caller's report.

If the authorities find a report was fraudulent, the caller needs to be punished severely.

Also, yelling "GUN! GUN! GUN!" around a bunch of people should be seen as an attempt to incite panic -- no different than falsely yelling "FIRE!" in a crowded theater.

Fears over being the subject of an inaccurate 911 call are valid. In fact, it's something often overlooked when people analyze a use-of-force event. 911 callers are rarely held responsible for providing incorrect or misleading information, unless it is blatantly obvious it was a false statement made with some ill intent.

My main concern with the focus on the word "concealed" is that guns can sometimes 'print' without the knowledge of the carrier, even though you have made a reasonable attempt to conceal and keep the weapon concealed. This means someone may call 911 on you and you would have no idea until the police make contact, all because the wind blew a certain way, causing your gun to print. There is just so much relay of information left up to the 911 caller, dispatcher, and responding police, information that you can't possibly know, that will undoubtedly have an affect on the impending encounter. If the caller, dispatcher, or police are excitable in that moment, you could be killed despite making every attempt to be a law-abiding gun carrier. Completely law-abiding gun carriers have been killed by police simply for having a gun (Amir Locke, Atatiana Jefferson, et. al.) because of poor policework or 3rd party 911 calls, so for the Chief to say "oh, just call 911 if you see a gun" is really not inline with the progressive "stop unjustified police use-of-force" movement.
Modify message

Some jurisdictions have made printing a felony -- similar to brandishing.  They take "concealed" very seriously.

Since HI is just now changing policy to actually issue carry licenses, I'm sure printing will be addresses in upcoming laws when the legislature goes back to work.

As for reporting people, I'm more concerned with the anti-gun people (I'm sure there are plenty in this state).  They'll be hanging out in malls and on Waikiki benches scanning for anyone they can turn in.

Then there are the intentional calls reporting a gun when the caller knows better...

Walmart: 911 caller 'intentionally lied to police' about
man with toy gun fatally shot in Ohio store

Quote
BEAVERCREEK, Ohio — In a lawsuit over the 2014 shooting by police of a Beavercreek
Walmart customer, attorneys for Walmart plan to claim that another customer who called
911 was the cause of the incident and the store should not be held responsible.

Walmart attorneys have filed motions in a wrongful death lawsuit stating that Ronald Ritchie,
the man who first called 911 from the Beavercreek Walmart stating there was a suspicious
man with a gun in the store, was the "legal and proximate cause" of John Crawford III's shooting
death by a Beavercreek police officer on Aug. 5, 2014.

“Ronald Ritchie’s lies are the sole reasons why police came into the (Beavercreek Walmart)
store with their guns drawn,” Walmart attorneys wrote. “Ronald Ritchie intentionally lied to the
police. Ronald Ritchie was not a good Samaritan who was mistaken.”

Crawford, 22, of Fairfield, was shot to death Aug. 5, 2014, by Beavercreek police Officer Sean
Williams after Ritchie told dispatchers a black man was holding a rifle, appeared to be loading
it and waving it near people, including children. Crawford was holding a Crosman MK-177 BB/
pellet rifle he found unpackaged on a store shelf.
Quote
“At worst, Ronald Ritchie could have believed he saw Mr. Crawford legally open carry a firearm,
” Walmart contends. “Nevertheless, Ronald Ritchie made the conscious decision to call 911 and
falsely report an act of violence and hostility towards some of the most vulnerable in our society,
mothers and their children, with the clear knowledge that this alleged threat of violence would be
met with armed resistance leading to the detention and/or death of Mr. Crawford.”

Waiting for the first lawsuits here after someone dies from being "S.W.A.T.-ED" as a result of the Chief's comments.

Someone broke into my house last night while I was away.  It looks like the only thing they took was my anti-depressants. 

Now I have to get another prescription, but my doctor's on vacation.

I hope they're happy!

Bingo!  Our "freedoms" have been reduced to choosing the one you hate the least.  I despise Biden.  I despise Trump quite a bit too.

IMO, it's more about whose team you're on.  Liking your team's mobster or hating the other's isn't a requirement.

I find it appalling that so many people don't take 5 minutes to research their party's nominees.  They take what's fed to them via MSM opinions, political ads union statements, etc, etc as gospel.

Few have enough info to make a personal opinion.  Why make the effort when you can just adopt other's opinions.

The Benghazi lies showed just how the elites in Washington DC believe the country is stupid and gullible.  An attack on the anniversary of 9/11 just after the killing of Bin Laden ... but they blamed an obscure YouTube video that had nothing whatsoever to do with the US government.

The overt disrespect the government shows toward half the country -- the Liberals -- is ever-increasing and becoming more and more incredulous.  To treat their own base as stupid and willing to lap up any lies they are fed shows how little they think of then.  They then demonize the other half of the country -- the ones not buying into the lies -- as Right wing nut jobs, conspiracy theorists, and all the other "basket of deplorables" descriptions we hear constantly.

Now we have PROOF that Social Media and the Feds have been in bed together -- something most of us already see plain as day.

Sometimes I feel like politics is nothing more than a bad movie.  No matter how much you want to, you can't change the ending.  We just have to sit and watch the same bad movie over and over and over again...

Youre asking a question that cannot be answered with logic.
Just reiterating the obvious fact that TDS, like liberalism, is a mental disorder.

Hillary is not a felon because she was granted a DOJ pardon through Loretta "Bill and I talked about golf and grandkids on his plane" Lynch and James "She didn't mean to break all those laws" Comey.

If I buy a gun & ammo, point the loaded gun into the air and pull the trigger, that round has the potential to kill someone on the ground.  if someone dies, the law says you acted negligently and are guilty of involuntary manslaughter.  What i intended has no bearing on whether or not I broke the law.  it only plays into the severity of the charge.

The Dept of State Inspector General said Hildabeast's use of an unauthorized email server was "extremely careless," careful to avoid the legally-significant term "negligent."

We'll never know the level or extent of damage Clinton caused to our national security, because nobody will bother to inform us even IF they investigated the severity of any compromises she cause.

a few months ago, PSA would not send me 30 round AR mags
There has always been a "Cops don't enforce that law for ARs" understanding for >10rd mags. 

Letter of the law makes them illegal for non-LEO purchases.  it's the ban on Assault Pistols that muddies the water.

Most places I ordered 30 rd and larger mags from in the past changed their policies to restrict sales to Hawaii to 10 rds or less.

There have been bills proposed lately to clarify the law and make >10 rd mags illegal no matter what type of firearm it fits.

Given the number of 30-rd + mags already in HI residents' hands, has there really been a need to enforce a 10-rd limit?

Why do you continue to support Trump crimes?

What crimes?

He's not been convicted -- hell, not even charged -- with a single crime.

You seem to think I'm supporting a criminal -- yet, he's not guilty of any crimes as far as the law is concerned.

As you stated, "Can indictments be far off?"  Even you acknowledge he's not been charged with any crimes.  Yet, you're happy to convict him in your mind.

I recall that workaround before.  I think the last one I ordered, HI was available in the shipping.  And shipping cost was decent.  However, time from order to ship can be a crap shoot with them.  I recall them getting roasted for a long time about that.

Their policy says normally they ship within 5 days of ordering.  Uppers can take as long as 15 days to ship.  I guess that allows for assembly.

Looking at the StarProvdatizer article, I realize they added NO CoNTEXT to the chief's request for 911 calls.

He didn't say "in public places, away from residences or businesses," etc.

I can see people getting reported for open carrying on their property or in their place of business.

it's been a few years since I ordered AR-15 receivers from PSA.

When I first ordered, they didn't even have Hawaii as a selection in their STATE pulldown list.  I had to pick another state (usually AK), and just put my correct town and zipcode.  The order always arrived on time.

They finally added Hawaii, so that "workaround" is just a memory now.

As for freight forwarding, I guess that applies to ammo.  If they offer free shipping for non-ammo orders, it normally applies to HI shipments, too.

I always picked GROUND shipping method to get the lowest cost if shipping wasn't included.  PSA picked the carrier -- usually UPS or USPS.  Again, the shipment always arrived as anticipated.

Go through the check-out process and place your order.  Shipping costs will be calculated and added to the final amount.

Firearms and Accessories / Re: Are Red Dots MORE Accurate Than Iron Sights?
« on: December 07, 2022, 12:59:05 PM »
I think with the red dot, you're relying more on finding and aiming the dot, which can take a fraction of a second or more.

With iron sights, I imagine you are relying partially on the sights and partially on muscle memory to "naturally aim" the pistol.

I found in MPPL stages, especially with cardboard targets within 10 feet, i didn't concentrate on the iron sights as much as "point and shoot".  I found I had a tendency to hit the upper A region (headshot) without taking much time to line up the sights.  If I were using a red dot I'd be taking more time to acquire and place the dot before firing without trusting my "natural aim" as much.

That's my theory, and I'm sticking to it!

We need a mass public "protest" made up of Taser owners visibly displaying their less-than-lethal non-firearms.

Then, when the Cops get tired of false alarms, the Chief will have no choice but to recant his plea for public 911 open-carry calls.

This is an example of what can happen -- lockdowns, a terrorized public, disruption of businesses, traffic snarls, and people's lives impacted having to deal with false reports.  All because of an irrational fear and a deep desire to continue violating Constitutionally protected rights.
