Hmmm, interesting use of a dehydrator.
My neighbor gave me some odd fruit that I have never seen before.
I had to Google it to find out what the heck it is. See the pic in the previous message and take a guess.
Anyway, it's going into some fruit rollup now...
When I went through the lengthy process of getting an answer on this from the Hilo office (after providing them with three separate rulings by BATFE that the firearm in question was NOT a shotgun) I was first told "If it shoots a shotgun shell, it is a shotgun". I asked them where that legal definition existed in HRS. They gave me no answer. I then asked about a Taurus Judge model revolver chambered for .410 bore shot shells and the .45 Colt cartridge and why, since that shoots shotgun shells, they register it as a pistol when they just told me a definition that means it's clearly a shotgun (and one that's WAY too short!). They then made up a new definition/rule/law: "If it fires shotgun shells exclusively, then it's a shotgun." So if someone modified an .410 shotgun by shortening it and so it would fire .45 Colt cartridges, that firearm would be legal according to the Hawaii County "interpretation" (aka "made up shit") of the law, but it would NOT be legal by BATFE standards since you can't "modify" (make shorter) an ordinary (manufactured as full length) shotgun into a "firearm". I'm sure confronted with this possibility the county would just make up more shit, but at that point I gave up because it's clear they can do and say and make up anything they want to and all we can do is get arrested and go to jail for not following the shit they make up.
As I recall there is no permits needed if only flying the drones indoors.
New comer to the forum and to HI as well. Looking at a potential move to The Big Island and am seeking some guidance.
Initial concern was do I need to establish residency and obtain a valid HI issued ID to register any firearms I bring with me from out-of-state, but saw on previous post out-of-state ID is good to go.
Do I fill the FIREARM INFORMATION FORM with the same info on my out-of-state address listed on my Driver's License?
(I Should have a local HI address to fill under 'business address', could that be written in both address sections?)
Also is there a limit of the number of registrations done at once or within a certain time period?
Lastly looking for some more info for BIG ISLAND PRACTICAL SHOOTERS, or any other practical shooting on BI.
Just sent an email to the listed contact on uspsa.org but curious if any members of the club are on the forum.
