The final symbol of freedom in America is the right to own firearms.

I sell products ethically. I don't merchandise unnecessary items or steer customers wrong

by sales pitching firearms and related accessories the way most shops do nationwide.

Firearms are serious. For defense, hunting, even shooting as a hobby: when you've had

enough of the BS in the firearm industry, you'll get honest answers and experience here.

- Why I have a different approach to firearms and equipment sales -

Handgun purchases require 'notarized training certificate' and a two week waiting period.

Rifles and shotguns require a longgun permit. No one wants to deal with these procedures

but they are required and must be done along with filling out Federal fm 4473 upon pickup.

For rifles/shotguns: It takes two weeks to get a longgun permit and then it's good for a year.

- Firearm registration procedures with HPD -

I do not offer 'military or law enforcement discounts' because everyday prices are low enough.

I don't have items marked up high then offer a discount to give an impression of lower prices.

Repeat customers receive further discounts. Active NRA/LIFE instructors receive discounts.

That is how I believe it should be, and those who understand the concept will agree.

No extra charge (Visa,MC) for in-store standard credit card purchases

No BS or unethical salespitching on unnecessary guns or gadgets

Always consistent with the best prices, ethics, and service with the sale



Specializing in defensive firearms and training, Kaneohe Gun Shop is your source for products that are proven and hold true to the adage

“you get what you pay for”.  Quality only needs to be bought once, and the knowledge one acquires through the sale is perhaps the most valuable of all. Firearms for hunting and target shooting are likewise offered based on personal experience and reputable gun manufacturers' history or track record. Selling bargain guns or accessories just to make another markup in the store is not in my interest. Helping people arrive at higher ability in firearm and fighting skills in rapid time frames is my goal and that path does not allow wasted time/money with unnecessary/ inferior products or tedious learning processes.

Kaneohe Gun Shop is located at 45-1117 Kamehameha Hwy

This is why I talk up training beyond the typical gun range and why I pursue aggresive physical training 3 and 4 nights a week. - Combatives -

It is also why I recommend knife, empty hand

and 'improvised tools' reality training even more than live fire practice at a peaceful firing range. Progressive annual training is also my personal requirement, and that takes a budgeting of time and money that does not need to be spent on the next miracle gadget or promised wonder gun. Rehearsals and drills should be recurrent and frequent, not excessive range visits to send rounds often wastefully downrange. It does not need to take years for responsible gun owners to cultivate mindset and formidable ability to thwart malice and evil that may present itself to loved ones and innocent around us. -Force on Force-


If you are concerned about personal protection, safeguarding your family and being prepared, why would you take ANY advice from

those who do not continuously train and progress in that manner?
