I bought my first handgun in 1971 and this was the procedure back then.  Go to gun store and select gun you want to buy.  Pay for it and take receipt to HPD to get the permit.  Take permit back to gun store and get your handgun.  Take it back to HPD to register.  Since SEC was right across HPD, everything could be completed in about an hour.  Long guns could just be purchased with no permit and no registration. So the answer to your question is yes in Hawaii even 40 years ago.

I shoot my AR15, 9MM and .22LR in my backyard with no problems, But I live in Fern Forest on the Big Island with my closest neighbor over 400 yards away and the forest reserve in the back.  I also hear gun shots periodically from neighbors on both sides.  In fact one of my neighbors told me when I first moved there about 10 months ago that we watch out for each other here and all of us have guns.  What a difference from Oahu.  Reminded me of Molokai where I grew up and more than half the households had guns.

From calling HPD directly about 5 years ago, they told me there was no restriction on blade length.  Specific types of knives are prohibited, such as daggers, switchblades, butterflies and those others listed under the HRS.  My friend's 23 yr old son started carrying his Cold Steel Kopis machete in his backpack after that.  I personally like to carry 2 Spyderco Street Bowies, one on each side.  I personally think a long blade like a machete will be too slow to deploy in most self defense situations, although it would be great if it was already in your hand.

Buying bottled water is a waste of money.  Was there even such a thing 20 years ago?

I recently bought a home on the Big Island, 3 acres fully fenced ag land, closest neighbor 550 ft away with forest reserve in the back.  I have been shooting every now and then on my property and no one has said anything.  I met one neighbor before moving there and she told me, "we all watch out for each other here and all of us have guns."  This is without me telling her anything about being a gun enthusiast.  I love it here where you might have one vehicle pass by your home every 2 hours, can't even see your closest neighbor and they all like guns.  On Oahu I had to be careful about shooting my air rifle and pistol on my tiny 7500 sq ft lot.  Still haven't had a chance to check out any of the gun shops here.

I registered handguns twice, four days after acquisition and HPD did not say anything.  I read the laws on gun registration and did not see anything about having to register a handgun in two days.  If there is such a requirement can someone direct me to exactly where it is?

Yes where do I find 1/2" brown packaging tape? I checked Office Depot then have 6" wide which is too large.

I would just cut across the 6 inch tape to 1/2 inch or whatever width you wanted and make squares to the size you want.

You can use brown paper packaging tape if you can't find masking tape.
