General Discussion / Re: .30 carbine ammo current price
« on: October 03, 2013, 02:26:34 PM »
I bought mine from cmp, and they ship to Hawaii. I bought a bunch from Young Guns for $19 a box but that was last December. I think they round around $25-$30 a box.
General Discussion / Re: Who Runs a Drop Leg?

I can't remember the name of the drop holster I used but I love them, very comfortable. The regular holster on my gun belt was annoying when sitting and riding around. The only time a drop holster sucked is when I wore my Law Enforcement Cheetah Shorts, the bottom leg strap would ride up the right side of my shorts, if I was climbing ladders.
General Discussion / Re: Why do Most of our gun ranges...

I figured it was something to do with the state, since it is a public range.
I know we shoot them at our indoor range on Sand Island. Can you shoot them at the one on Queen St. since it is a private/business range.

I would like to get practice in and we shoot the silhouette, but allotted so many rounds and chances.

My question is, is why can't you shoot human silloheute (sp?) at KoKoHead? 5rds doesn't bother me except when I shoot my Garand or pistols.
I def. think there's more to the story than what the article says. He needs to move to a far off place, the media just won't leave the guy alone.
I've bought several guns, ammo, and accessories from different shops here in Oahu. Being from the mainland and Mississippi to be exact, it's a little difficult for me to get adjusted to the laws here. I'm used to going to the gunshow with a firearm and trading it or selling it with no paperwork, so this place came was a shock to me. But I do try to help the guys out that want to get a firearm or bring one to the islands and promote the LGS at work whenever I can.

Here's my experiences:

OGC: Bought 2 guns from them and did an FFL (my 1st) and it went smoothly. Those guys were very helpful and never had a problem with them, except parking at certain times, but i've learned that parking+Oahu=craptastic.
Young Guns: Very helpful, bought a lot of ammo from them, parking sucks sometimes, I park at ben Franklins and walk over.
Magnum: Bought 1 gun and was going to buy another, but whoever the salesman was told me he would have to go and see if they had it in the warehouse? But didn't feel like checking at the time, so I walked out. But other than that one time they've been very helpful.
KGS: I was told by the local guys I work with he was kinda off, I went and found that out for myself. Haven't been back.
Security HI: Very helpful guys.

I haven't been to the other shops yet, but I'm sure i'll make it around.
That's why I'm glad I brought my pistola's here.I would have to recert on the basic and judgmental pistol course just to get the letter to go buy a pistol here. A lot of guys I work with want to buy guns here, but they find the process "annoying" so they just wait till they Transfer. I try to explain it to them and its not that bad, but I do see the point of when I can go to the store buy a gun and be completely done in 20min on the mainland, well in some states.

Yes, not everyone in the military is an expert gun handler I've seen it many times and I myself have taken shortcuts, especially after a long night of chasing shadows.
You can use 30 rounders at the range, just 5 shots at a time. I'm military and went and bought a 9 round mag at a gun show before I transferred here. But I brought my 30's too and used them with no problem at KoKoHead.

Not sure if you're military, but I flew with my guns into Hawaii and charge the extra fees to my TONO number.

It hasn't been passed yet. So hopefully it gets shot down.

Isn't an AK-47 an assault rifle now?  Because it "belongs on the battlefield and not in the hands of civilians?"   :crazy:

If its full auto you could say its an assault rifle. Other than that its a semi automatic rifle. If you remember in the 90's the media reported more or less everything was an AK-47 and in the picture the gun used would be completely something else. Now you see the AR-15 as the big bad rifle the media reports on first thing, then it turns out to be something else.  :wacko:

I like how it's automatically a military style assault rifle. Who remembers the days when every gun used was an AK-47? Even if they used an SKS or something not even similar. Now everything is labeled as an AR-15.
General Discussion / Re: M-1 Garand/M-1 Carbine Gunsmiths on Oahu?
« on: June 02, 2013, 08:10:22 PM »
I just got the carbine and fired it at Kokohead this morning, was a little scared with the 1st round as with all surplus rifles I own or owned when I 1st get them. But I just wanted to have them both gone through, more on the M-1 carbine because she looks a little bit more worn. I was going to buy the gauges but I figured it would be easier and cheaper to have them done by a gunsmith on island. I know Fulton Armory does this but I hate shipping my rifles and then the cost.

Looking for anybody or shop that can go through an M-1 Garand/Carbine. Check headspace and such.

Went Friday, got there a little after 2pm, no parking anywhere. Went and found spots next to the furniture store and put 1 hour and 28 minutes worth of change in the meter. One person in there and they were pretty much done. Got all my paperwork done, walked back out and still had 1 hour and 8 minutes left in the meter. First time its been like that for me.
Warning shots and a rotwieller gets rid of Jehovah's Witness's and other bible thumpers. We'd just walk out on the porch and put some rounds in the yard before they'd get out of the holy roller van.Also, works for crackheads and trespassers. But this of course is in Mississippi.
Just wanted to know how long once a long gun arrives on island to the FFL dealer before I get the call to pick it up? This is my 1st FFL purchase, so I was curious if they have to do paperwork and what not.

Go to San Juan, Puerto Rico. The National Guard rolls with the Police there. I flew over from St. Thomas USVI for some Cervezas and Booty and I'm walking out of a bar and there was National Guard in fatigues and M-16s shouldered on the corners in Isla Verde which is the tourist zone. I saw them rolling in the cop cars too. Theirs is more drug related but still kinda like wtf is it that bad and they actually had them out there. Couldn't imagine them in the actual US like that.

Yeah you need a gun in Jackson, I carry mine, and sleep with it back home. Plus we have the Castle Doctrine, catch some 15 y/o in your house and cancelled Christmas for the little thief. Wish I was there when they broke into several houses including my grandmothers. They'll kill you for any reason there.
