At any moment, did he say online reg is an option? Like do from your phone while waiting and see who finishes 1st.

The store mentioned the option of online registration.  HPD didn't bring up that online registration was an available option.

Went down to register in person since the online thing didn't go well already with the permit.  Only 1 guy working at the registration counter at 2:30 pm. He had to go get more out of state registration forms for the guy behind me since the bins were empty.  One person in front of me and 3 people were behind me within 5 minutes of getting to the window.  The counter guy said there were a lot of people out sick but didn't specify if it was due to covid and that there were a lot of permit applications the past two weeks.  Didn't say if either permit volume or lack of staff caused the delay in emailing my permit.

In the end got it all done but it was not a smooth easy process. The new process while easier is still not as convenient or expedient as I think it should be.  Thanks to all the people that have and continue to work to make it a better process.  I didn't specifically move into Karl Rhoads district just to voice my opinions to him as a constituent or vote against him but since I'm now in his district he will be hearing from me again.

Just received my permit email at 9:22 am.  Guess there are delays for whatever reason.  If I have a chance later this afternoon I will try and call to see if they know why it was delayed till today.

Side note to myself.  Don't juggle work, a house move, and a permit to aquire all during the same week again.  :wacko:

I applied for a pistol permit and signed up for email delivery and yesterday was the day it was supposed to be sent.  I received a similar confirmation email that I got when I applied for a long gun permit earlier and got my the long gun email about mid-day on the first day of pickup without issues.

Can I go in and pick up the pistol permit or do I have to wait for the email or can I call to find out the status?  I saw the other thread that HPD said there may be delays in sending the email but that was also reported to be clarified with HPD that permits would be emailed on the 14th day without delay.

I haven't been there before but address shows a warehouse on Bannister Place.  I get detailing supplies from another business on that street.  To get there you'll have to go from Kamehameha Hwy to Laumaka street that will turn into Bannister street (one way) and then take a left onto Bannister Place.  Google maps looks like it's in the warehouse on the left side dead end in Bannister place.  Lots of auto repair and body shops in that area.  Did not know there was a gun shop there.  Gonna check out their instagram now.

Check with Ace Metal Recycling on Auiki street or Schnitzer Steel in Kapolei.  I've taken cut up shells and flatbeds to both before.  It's been about 2 years since I've scrapped anything though and I've heard with scrap prices down that some materials they will charge to drop off now.  Both were a bit strict about gas, oil, and other fluids being drained, and gas tanks punctured before you get there to confirm they're empty.  So if you can cut it up and get to either spot good to confirm their requirements and if they're accepting that type of material before you go.

I coordinated my cancel along with the person picking up the appointment.  In my experience it was about 10 seconds from the cancel till the appointment showed up on the site for the person to grab.  If someone else is watching at the same time there's the chance they'll miss picking up the appointment but the two times I've done it has been alright.

I think if they had extended the privilege it would have benefited MWR programs with increased revenue.  Before I aged out as a dependent and while I've been overseas I've had access.  For me it'd be a convenience and another source to buy from but would not be my primary shopping choice.  To me only some things are priced well and competitively.  I would still buy things off base and online.

I'd be curious to know what the privilege abuse numbers are if they even track that.  While I was dependent I saw cigarette and alcohol limits implemented because it was obvious from the amounts being purchased it was not for personal consumption or even party quantities.

I'm all for common sense caliber and powder weight limits for aerials.  Fully automatic high capacity cake fireworks and artillery shells are not the tradition that the ancestors intended.

That's another peeve of mine.  A while ago I got this letter in the mail from a real estate agent I've never known or heard of.

Inside the letter was a google photo of a birds eye view of my house and property and he wants to buy it.

You can request your property be blurred on google maps, I have neighbors that have done it.  Took a week or so they said but once they submitted the request it was completed.

As long as the gravy is good I don't really have a favorite loco moco.  Fried rice is like bacon it makes anything better.

I've been liking the variations people are doing.  Pancake and Waffles Aiea does a prime rib moco and Diner's Kalihi's Bradduh moco with corned beef instead of hamburger are both great.

It's just an unplanned donation to those less fortunate.  Go greet them at the door and help them select what will improve their lives.

It's a one sided article that does nothing to highlight the fact that it's nearly impossible to obtain a permit or registration appointment unless you have time to repeatedly hammer the HPD website at certain times of the day

General Discussion / Re: Moving Safe Upstairs
« on: June 09, 2020, 06:45:41 PM »
My friend's interior stairs are carpeted.  We used ratchet straps and 2x4s to make skis for the safe and slid the safe up the stairs with 4 people.  The two guys above the safe didn't seem like they were doing much work other then steering and making sure we didn't catch the straps on the edge of the stairs.  The other 2 stupid guys (me) were pushing from the bottom and felt like we did most of the work.  It was a Liberty and he said it was around 400 lbs.  It wasn't bad overall and didn't seem like we'd ever lose it.  I think it being a long straight staircase helped.  Having to turn a corner on a landing would have been harder I think.  I wish we'd have looked if the door came off.  That would have made it a lot easier.

Online sign ups for 6/14 (furthest out I see on the site) are closed and the appointment window was 6/3 at 12:00 pm until 6/4 at 11:59 pm.  Will we have to make appointments over a week ahead of time?  And once the appointment window closes that slot goes unused unless someone is waiting at the range on the chance there will be an available bench?

I also was thinking, (which is pretty dangerous btw...…)

Besides range targets,

1)  They would make good pet toys for cats and dogs to play with.

2) They can replace the old tired badminton balls with a ball like this.

3)  Maybe a Covid-19 pillow?

4)  Maybe they can replace the old Bozo the clown red nose with a nose like this.  I'd like to buy several thousand of these to send as gifts to certain political leaders and such.

#4 has a lot of sales and profit potential imho.  ;)

I hope the range is really going to be open.  Archery ranges will be good too.  Hopefully between the two I can get some line time to change up the monotony lately.
