Political Discussion / So I registered as a Democrat today.....

If a pro gun Republican can't win an election then I'll do my part to vote out the anti gun Democrat candidates in the primaries.  Cheers!
Off Topic / Where to buy and sell coins on Oahu?
« on: November 13, 2019, 12:05:19 AM »
Hey gents.  I'm on the hunt for a couple of coins.  A 1900 Morgan Silver Dollar, condition largely irrelevant, and an 1976 Ike (40%) silver dollar in good shape.

Story time:  In the early 80's my dad and I used to stop in and visit an old farmer that my father had bought out and given a living lease to.  On one of those visits he gave me a 1900 silver dollar, explaining that it was from the year he was born.  He never had kids of his own and I guess he wanted to pass it down to someone who would appreciate it.

Fast forward to 2017.  My father offered to sign over the very same farm to me so I could retire there and build a house.  Turns out old Alvin made a good choice in giving me the 1900 silver dollar as I found it with some of my personal items in my parents house.  I thought it was pretty cool to have a connection to the original owner so I brought it back to Hawaii with me.

Which brings us to today.  I'd love to get a hold of a spare 1900 Morgan Silver Dollar to keep on my person as part of my daily carry.  I'd hate to lose the original or put a ton of wear on it, but I'm willing to accept a surrogate to carry to remind me of why I go to work every day.  (Especially the bad days.)

Which brings me to part 2 and the 1976 40% silver Ike hunt.  Turns out life didn't have kids in store for me either and I'd like to turn over the 1900 and a 1976 (the year I was born) to who ever gets the place after me. 

I'm sure you guys coin and bullion collections are like your gun collections.  All lost in a tragic boating accident.

Here's a picture of the old girl (if it posts).

General Discussion / AK drum mag recommendation
« on: February 16, 2019, 10:42:05 PM »
Do any of you gentlefolks have any experience with 7.62x39 drum mags for AK's?  I've got a Arsenal SAM7R that I would love to put a drum mag on.  I'm not planning on doing any combat rolls or anything crazy, just looking for something that will last and is reliable.
Legal and Activism / Pro Gun Bill Priority?
« on: January 31, 2019, 11:51:42 AM »
I'm all up to date with phone calls and emails on the assault weapons ban bills.  While the taste of having my free time co-opted for defensive activism is fresh in my mouth (yuck) is there one Pro Gun Bill that stands above all others that is worth pushing?  Perhaps a couple favorites? 

I told all the Reps and Senators assistants they were going to hear back from me.  I'd hate to be a liar just because I've check all the boxes I can on a work day.
Hey folks. I recently switched from Kaiser to HMSA. Can anyone recommend a 2a friendly general practitioner near Mililani?  Competent is a plus!

General Discussion / Accurate Subcompacts and Micro Pistols?
« on: July 28, 2018, 12:22:03 PM »
A man once said that an accurate firearm is an interesting firearm.

I’ve got a carry permit for my mainland adventures for which I picked up a Glock 26. I find it’s sufficiently accurate for our 25 yard range. Do any of you chaps have experience with subcompacts and micros that would be suitable for me to enjoy here for challenging target shooting as well as for my mainland carry?

If I get something new I’d like to enjoy it year round.

General Discussion / Clear Backpacks at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
« on: March 22, 2018, 05:50:00 PM »
Gentlemen, I have detected a teachable moment.  The student activists in Florida are displeased that they are required to use clear backpacks.  The lesson is that trading away rights for safety is all well and good until someone takes a right you care about.  Be careful what you ask for.  Enjoy!
General Discussion / Anyone with experience with Ruger Mark IV’s?
« on: March 13, 2018, 09:56:05 AM »
Gentle folks, I’m strongly considering a Ruger Mark IV for general purpose plinking and as something easier to shoot than my SR22 on the pistol target range.

Other than appearances are there any significant differences between the hunter/target models and the 22/45 if I use an RMR?
Political Discussion / Gold Star ID

Wouldn’t just be easier for them to identify me by sewing the star to my pajamas?  This is bullshit.
Legal and Activism / stripped lower re-registration?
« on: September 22, 2017, 03:49:28 PM »
Greetings gentlefolks.

You fellows have been an excellent resource in the past and I was hoping  you could clear up some confusion for me.

I recently registered a stripped AR lower on Oahu and was informed by HPD that I needed to return to either re-register it or update the description (officer wasn't clear) after I had completed the build.  I twice attempted to clarify that the lower was a stripped lower and under law was the firearm and not an unfinished 80%.  Each time the officer reiterated that me that once I start drilling it (?!) I would have to bring it in and re-register/update.

At this point I was concerned that they thought I was attempting to register an 80% and attempted to clarify with the officer who collected my final signature for the lower.  She informed me that I did not have to bring the lower back after I had completed the build.  She then became unsure of herself and conferred with the other two officers.  At this point she returned and informed me that I needed to have a full description of the completed rifle on file if I sold it.  I pointed out that only the lower was a controlled item.  She the followed up by informing me that they had had trouble with people making AR pistols and I needed to bring it back to have the barrel length measured, although she seemed to concede that this was a pretty flimsy reason to return as well.  At this point she decided to confer further with the other two officers working in registration and they returned and informed me without explanation that I indeed did need to return the rifle when the build was complete.   

At this point I shut my mouth because I didn't want to be argumentative and assumed I could easily research the statutes or perhaps find an older thread here on 2aHawaii. 

I spoke with my FFL and he was surprised to hear that I had been asked to re-register the completed build as well.  Other individuals who have purchased stripped lowers were unaware they had to return.  Review of Hawaii Revised Statutes showed no sign of this requirement although I may have overlooked something.

I realize that the officers in firearms registration are not infallible.  I've had previous incidents in which: When applying for a pistol permit they questioned my affidavit because it was notarized and issued by a private local NRA accredited instructor rather than one of the more well know instructors affiliated with local gun stores, and also a delay due to confusion over which parts were the serial number on a 1970's era 1911 (the slide and barrel have military stock numbers stamped where you might expect to find a serial number on a Glock).

My ultimate questions are:
1. Do I indeed have to return to re-register the firearm after it's completed?
2. If so what statute are they referencing to require this?
3. How long has this requirement been in place?

I realize that them wanting me to return is unenforceable and relies on the honor system and that I could just blow it off, however my right to bear arms is important to me and I very much want to stay on the right side of the law.  To be clear I do not want to come off as insulting to HPD either.  I have had friends who were officers here in the past and I know it isn't an easy job.

Thank you to anyone who might have any insight into this.
