Be sure to take a pic with your phone to prove that you are trying to get an appointment.
No one in this sight does anything illegal.

If no one wants the Oct 22:
Permit to acquire @ 5:40
Registration @ 4:10
I will be cancelling on Sunday or early Monday morning.

Cancelled both at 10:16, forgot to do this post, and just checked and they are gone.  Someone is watching.

I was able to get two appointments in the "EXTENDED HOURS" for Oct 22:
Permit to acquire @ 5:40
Registration @ 4:10
Message me and we can arrange a time for me to cancel and you apply for the appointment.
I would suggest off hours, before 8am and after the "EXTENDED HOURS" 7pm or Sunday.

Thank JC.  It looks like it stops at 6:50, but I was not able to confirm, since at 6:50, system returns unavailable.  Tried at 7:00  and 7:10, unavailable.
"EXTENDED HOURS" are probably 4-6pm.

Does anyone know what the appointment "EXTENDED HOURS" are?
I tried at 5pm today and the 10/22 5pm appointment was available, but like the deer in the bush, got a glimpse and then it was gone before I could enter anything.

Permit to Acquire:
Made appointment on 07/16 for 10/14
Got email reminder last week
10/11  appointment reminder text
10/13  appointment reminder email
10/14  9am appointment reminder email

You need to go to the Registration side to have your temperature checked.  They confirm that you have an appointment listed on their printout.  Take your temperature and write it on a form that you fill out and return, they then sign off on the form.  You then take the form with you, with your other forms and to the Permit to Acquire side.  When you get to the window, they ask you if you have an appointment and check their printout.

Funny, I had an 11am appointment, but there were three others already in there (sign say only 2 allowed).  At 11:10 when one completed and left, they signaled to me to enter and go to the window.  I presented my forms, sign them and filled out the application at the window.  While I was completing my form, another person entered and said he had a 11:20 appointment.  Guess the 11:10 was a no show, unless they took him before I got there before 11.

6 appointments per hour, 8 hour days (8am-4pm), 5 days a week, 13 weeks (90 days) equal 3,120 appointments.
I know there are alot of new gun owners?
Also, if all appointments were for 3, then that would mean 9,360 purchases/registrations?

If you buy an AR pistol and install bolt action conversion, would that then be legal in HI?

Weight and size is also another major factor.  The amount of ammo for the spray and pray style, carry 300 rounds of 556 vs 308.  Less powder and bullet weight, also means less cost per round.  Like the change from glass liquor miniature bottles to plastic, cheaper, less weigh, and less breakage for airlines.

Related question, what is your go to powder for each?
I remember the Elmer Keith 22grn of 2400.   I know it depends on and having to work up load with what is available.
Thanks in advance.

Thank you Inspector, stangzilla, and jc2721 for the insight.  Just wanted to get started gathering components before they become  really scares and/or I am prices out of the market.  Checked a few sights and many item are already out of stock.

Due to ammo shortages, do you have you have any recommendation for a standard, self-defense, SHTF load.  Each would have their own requirements, but looking for load that function in most revolvers and pistols, especially in those SHTF survival situations. I know there are also powder and primer shortages and you will need a reloading press, but looking at options available, since not sure how long these conditions will last.

Also do you have recommendation for where to get bulk bullets (heads)?  Would you recommend coated or FMJ?  Is there a type or shape that you have found to be the best all around?
Thanks in advance.

If you are arranging an exchange or giving up an appointment, you should do it during off hours, not 8-4, less chance of someone else grabbing it.  Best if he texts you when he cancels and then you refresh.
