Question 3: It would be absurd to draw any conclusions from this data, right?
My conclusion is where you have a large black population you are going to have a lot of crime.

Well, HPD is on record saying they prefer people watching someone getting beaten or killed instead of getting involved.   Call 911 and be a good witness.   I'll remember that if I see a cop getting attacked.  Plus I can't help them anyway.  Local laws prevent us from having the means to defend ourselves in most situations and all of us obey the law.

And what was that, robbing people?  F-ing losers.

I wished the car exploded into flames when they crashed and they all burned to death.  Would have saved taxpayers a lot of money..
Now there is going to be the expenses of a trial for the rest of them and then supporting them while they serve their time.  Bunch of asshole career criminals.

My cousin and a friend of mine both got their pilot's license from the Air National Guard.  This was awhile ago and both passed away years ago.

Only cost $78 rt interisland, so it will be more expensive to fly on your own.  Fuel, landing fees, parking the aircraft, maintenance,  yikes!  If looking for convenience,  ease of packing guns, etc, might be worthwhile for you, but it won't be cheaper than taking a commercial flight.

My place was built in the 70's so I go to City Mill when things break and I need a direct replacement, plus I like buying local if possible.
If you live on Oahu, want good quality lumber and want to buy local, go to Hardware Hawaii.

City Mill has the worst quality lumber. I never bought lumber from there.

The Kona Lowes is pretty good.  They carry some items that HD does not.  One thing is Lowes always has refrigerators in stock.  Maybe not the one you want, but they at least have some. Try to get any refrigerator from HD, Hilo or Kona and you have to order and wait 2 to 3 weeks.

Supply and demand. Isn't that the American way?  They don't seem concerned about the astronomical rise in ammo and lumber prices.

Instead of Leatherman,  carry the big Boy Scout multitool.  Get one spoon and fork and knife.

Wow that seems like lot of rifle for < 100 yards :-)

When you're young, everything is about power. My 17 yo cousin, year older than me, had a 300 Win Mag.  We wanted guns more powerful than the old guys who used 30-06, 30-30, 308 and 270s. He was the first on Molokai to have a 300 WM and I was the first to get a 7MM RM. This was back in 1966.

Rsn - wow!  2-7 seems more like a scope for pig or for a 30-30 bushwacker deer rifle.  I thought 7mm rem mag would run bigger magnification since it reaches far.  That shows what little I know

Most of the deer I shot were between 50 to 100 yards away.  Longest one was maybe 250 to 275 yards.  I wanted wide field of view.  The guy that I mentioned earlier who shot 3 running deer only had a peep sight on his 270 Win.  In fact, a lot of the guys I hunted with growing up on Molokai didn't have scoped rifles.

For a scope, What is the optimal magnification for Molokai?
I think I have 4-12x50 vortex crossfire with an illuminated reticle. 

Also have a 4-12x44 red field revolution (no illuminated reticle)

I also have a couple of 3-9x42 Nikon’s (no illumination)

I also have two 1-4x24 Nikon’s with illuminated reticles but I don’t plan to be or want to be a pusher.  I’ve seen and heard interesting stories of pushers almost getting shot.
My first scope was a 3-9 Redfield.  I traded it to another guy for his 2-7 Leupold.  They were mounted on a Remington 700BDL chambered in 7mm Rem Mag..

When I was 16, I went hunting with another Molokai guy about 35 years old. We saw about 40 deer and he told me to take the first shot. I shot one from a kneeling position and the herd started running.  He stood up and dropped 3 running deer with his Winchester M70 in 270 Win caliber.  I has so flabbergasted with his shooting I forgot to even take another shot.

I was born and raised on Molokai.   In high school we would walk across the highway from my friend's house and go hunt deer.  Nobody paid to hunt, except for mainlanders who went on escorted hunts on 2 ranches that offered it. My old time friends on Molokai, we are all in our 60s and 70s, say things are very different now, even for them. Can't hunt legally without paying.  So my Hawaiian friend says he exercises his native Hawaiian gathering rights to hunt like we did before. He shot this buck with his PCP rifle with a suppressor.   Quiet and powerful, perfect for "gathering ".

A Molokai deer hunt will cost at least $1500, all things considered.
