    30/30 lever action.
    We moved to HI last year, left long guns in friends safe in So. Cal. I've exhausted all the shippers DHL, FED-EX UPS
    USPS all tell me can't do it. If this isn't gun control I don't know what to call it. Help how to get my long guns to my residence in HI.?

    Best I can tell, you'll need to ship between FFL's....i.e., gun shop to gun shop. I personally never had to ship a firearm of anykind, they have always traveled with me. And you have 72 hours to register with HPD.

    Honestly dude, if you intend on leaving hawaii, IE military on orders, I would just leave your guns in Cali. there is only one range on Oahu, and last I heard, they are trying to shut that one down cause people are too stupid to hit thier targets, and instead shoot the people on the trail two hills over.

    I would just leave your guns where they are, unless you don't plan on leaving Hawaii.

    If there is such a thing as an FFL in the Peoples Republic of Hawaii, I'd recommend contacting them. The receipt thereof would have to come through them anyway, so they'd be the best to know.

    I have just returned from local gun store they will accept an FFL transfer but won't hand over rifle until I have a permit from Police dept. I do not want to do this. Although I purchased all of my long guns from FFL gun store new and registered in my name on Mainland I prefer no one knowing what I have I do not trust Obama and his corrupt administration. He pays no heed to 2nd amendment.

    4BNBAD,

    Well, if you move to oppressive 'gun registration required' HI -- whetheryou take your guns with you or buy a new one(s) when you get there -- to keep them in HI legally you WILL need to register them, so 'they' WILL know what you have either way you do it. I'm sure there MUST be some 'illegal' guns there with people who have refused (or forgot) to register them, but who knows what the stats are on registered vs. unregistered. And, the unregistered peoplerisk arrest, gun confiscationor whatever.

    I will face the same issue myself (unless laws change by the time I get there) soeither I take a gun with me or leave it here on the mainland and buy a new one there. Then register it.

    Like anywhere, you should have at least ONE gun (one is enough for me as one gun will get me another in times of crisis, etc.) but whatever it is, it'll have to be registered. Sad state of affairs in HI but what can you do.

    By the time I get there -- and HI still doesn't haveSHALL-ISSUE CC and no OC (the McDonald v. Chicago case at the SCOTUS presently goes poorly for us) -- then maybe I will end up being a test case...and try again.

    Don't WANT to be but I can't believe HI has gotten away with denyingits resident citizens their 2nd Amendment rights for so long. IMO, a state MUST allow/offer one of the two forms of carry: OC (with no permit) or CC (permit issue is debatable). HI allows neither.

    How does this relate to you (and me, when my time comes) getting our guns over there without registering them?

    Well, while I'm sitting in jail, preparing my "Hawaii Behaving Badly" case -- for denying 2nd Amendment rights and therefore being unconstitutional -- I can add "getting gun registration repealed" to the list.

    P.S. I'm a RVN vet also (Army), but I'm a young guy of 60. Still, might be seeing you someday at theSpark M Matsunaga VA Medical Center (next toTripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu). Aloha!
