Yikes!
I went down at 1pm and there was a lot of people waiting. Looks like over 2 hours if I chose to stay. I'll be back early in the morning next time.

Got there early, there were about 20 people in line.  HPD allows only 5 in the room at one time, they process applications only one person at a time at the window.  Permit pickups are processed quicker at the side window.  They tell me most of the applications are for newbs.  Figure 10 minutes per person, those guys outside are looking at a 3-4 hour wait.

I was out in 10, by then there were 5 inside and about 25 outside.

Bring a chair, gloves or sanitizer, make sure your phone is charged and your meter's full.  Bring lots of aloha, it helps.  It's nutz out there, who knows if it'll get better or worse.

Another thread says that starting Monday HPD's going to reservations only (can you say DMV?).

I went on Tuesday.  Waited a short time for a parking space.  There was 9 in line to the door.  sign said only 7 inside.  After an hour and 15, still had 4 to the door, long line after me , had to leave to go back to work.

Heard that Maui may suspend firearm permits after tomorrow.  Has anyone heard if HPD will do the same?

Just saw the separate post about making appointments.

I've been calling HPD for 2 weeks to make an appointment. It seems like they don't even pick up the phone.

HPD congratulating themselves for slowing down the number of registrations with their new appointment and "police report" policies. What kind of public service award does one get for intentionally interfering with constitutional rights?

My coworker called yesterday and got through on the 2nd call. He called right after lunch. This was his first time ever calling to make an appointment.

Why can't Hawaii read the Constitution? Or at least do like so many other jurisdictions do and have the retailer submit the paperwork. Takes 15 minutes to do the NICS check, 30 tops in 99% of the cases. All of the firearm info is on the 4473. Hawaii can even have their own. Nevada does. Back when Clark County still had handgun registration, we went to the shop, did the BG check, waited the 3 days for a 1st handgun, then the retailer filled out the form and gave you the Blue Card and sent a copy to the Sheriffs Office. Done and easy.
