I am not a new gun owner, but since 2019 I acquired only one gun, a 12 gauge pump hardly used, that was given to me by a good friend.

The requirement to retreat is the stupidest law they could ever make.  The attacker is likely to be bigger, stronger, younger and faster than the one being attacked.  That is why senior citizens like myself are a prime target. I will be 72 in 3 months, and even though I am pretty fit for my age, still climbing trees for extra income, if I was the bad guy I would not try to mug someone in the teenage to 50 group, especially if they were bigger and looked stronger than me.  It is time for our lawmakers to give the people the right to defend themselves.  Criminals have more rights than law abiding people do and that is F'd up.

AZ has quite a few 75mph strictly enforced speed limit signs. I can live with that, but 55 and 60 on the Saddle Road? Ridiculous. In the NE US, if the light changes to green and you don't get moving in 0.5 sec or less, people start leaning on their horn. Don't ever get a speeding ticket in NV.  Average fine for speeding in NV is $1000 and up.

General Discussion / FRONT SIGHT CHANGES MEMBERSHIP
« on: Today at 11:30:19 AM »
How many of you have a FS membership?  I have been a member since 2013 and recently got a long email explaining why they will now charge a $500 yearly membership fee and are converting previously held assets to FS$.  I have enough FS$ to maintain a membership for 4 years.  When I use up all my FS$ I don’t think I will bother with them anymore.  You can now use those $ to buy ammo there as well as anything in the Pro Shop.  Previously certain items could not be paid for using FS credits. They got involved with some deal to build that resort which is now years behind schedule and costing them millions in legal fees.  I knew they were in trouble financially when they were always coming up with higher levels of membership with innovative names.  Patron, Commander, Master, Founder, Knight, etc. I was even donating a small amount each month for their legal costs, which I am now going to stop.  At one time I was seriously thinking of retiring on the mainland and moving to Pahrump.  Then I could go to FS every week if I wanted to.  After looking at everything, I am better off staying where I am with a handgun range in my own backyard.  Being retired and having a daughter that works in Hilo and who lives with us, I don’t even need to go shopping anymore, well unless it is for guy things like HD, HPM, gun shops etc.

I wonder how much the monthly mortgage payments are now. 

Actually, I don't want to know.  Crazy.
The people who bought my house had a VA loan with a monthly payment of $6005. This is in 2015.  They had money.  Wife is a RN and he is retired military and had a plumbing business.  My mortgage for that house was just under $5k a month.

I've been looking at houses.
A lot are already in the $1M range,  and the well used ones are not that much cheaper,  & the complete renovation ones are alittle cheaper but to big a project for me.

Now I get why Inspector planned to retire on the big island.
When I sold my house in Pohakupu in 2015, you could still buy a house there for as low as $800k.  Looking at Locations market value of homes there today, none are valued below $1.15m.  Land value alone for a house lot in Pohakupu is over $1m.

Inspector did better by moving to a free state, AZ.  Big Island is getting too crowded.   I noticed traffic has increased considerably since I moved here 7 years ago.

A civilian model Taser does not have more range than a pepper gun. The Mace pepper gun I carry has at least a 20 ft range with about 7 one second shots.  A Taser has 15 ft at which the barbs will be 2 ft apart. You need both to hit for it to work, so the recommended distance is 7 to 10 ft where the barbs will be 1 ft apart.  What I would really prefer to carry is my JPX Jet Protector.  That has about a 35 ft range and fires a gel not easily deflected by wind. The one I have has 2 shots, but they now have a 4 shot model.  I leave it at home because it uses a 9MM casing powered by the primer only. Because of that it is considered a firearm in Hawaii even tho the ATF said it is not.

Look like he going retire real soon according to news media this morning. Biden will get to select a replacement unless Mitch can stop it.

All of this shows what dicks our politicians are. I guarantee you that if gun control was higly unpopular and pushing for it likely means you won't get reelected, they would flip sides. All they care about is staying in office with its perks.

I worked with a sister of a player during the 15-0 season. When they got worked by Georgia at the bowl game, she said cause most of the players were hung over. They knew they wouldn't win, so partied the night before.  Same person said why Jason Rivers didn't do well in the NFL is because the entire time he was going thru major girl problems. Lost focus. Last I saw him he was working at Verizon in Pearl Ridge.
I don't think that was the reason why they lost.  SEC speed is almost pro level. UH never faced that kind of competition before.  Georgia had a bunch of 4 & 5 star players. 3 star players warm the bench.  UH had at best a couple 3 star and 2 star players on that team.  The rest 1 or no star players.

It would appear that NY is already making new bills to amend in anticipation of losing this case in the NY SCOTUS. So, you can have your CCW for "self defense", but you can't defend yourself in these places with a firearm. lol

It appears to me that if you drove your truck to HD you could carry, or if you went grocery shopping using your own vehicle.  Hawaii would probably say any place open to the public, including roadways.

It has already been precedent that firearms are a right to have for personal self defense.

But not outside the home where 99.8% of the time is where you would need it. Talking about in Hawaii and a few other asshole states like Jersey.

He does have some coaching experience as an assistant coach.  Give him a chance. He cannot be any worse than Fred Von Notting Happen. I worked at HA with his mother when she was hapai with him.

I have lived in a middle-class neighborhood in Waipahu for 35 years. We never had any chronic problems.
You must not live on any of the streets that begin with Pupu.

That article must be couple years old.  Where you going find one house in HiKai or Manoa for $700k? I lived in Pohakupu, which is kitty corner from Castle Medical, from Jan 1993 to July 2015.
I considered that neighborhood extremely safe.  Lots of people, even women by themselves would go walking at night.  I met a few people who lived in the Coconut Grove area of Kailua who would
drive to my neighborhood to go walking and told me it was because they felt safe there. I know Manoa and HiKai pretty good and I wouldn’t consider those areas as safe as where I used to live.
I had a friend from Mexico City visit in 2014 and he and the wife would go walking at night.  He said he felt very safe and felt a good vibe walking the neighborhood, especially when he saw several women walking by themselves.
