Update 3/18: KokoHead Shooting Complex closed thru April 30
Read up on the Assault Weapons Ban 2019
Lawmakers are counting on the fact that firearm owners simply won't read
what this House Resolution details and thus would easily be misinformed.
"To regulate assault weapons . . . the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes."
Any merchandise not requiring paperwork must be paid for by cash. [Ammunition, accessories, cleaning supplies, holsters and gear, etc]
Visa/MC ok for any firearm purchases requiring permits.

Excerpt from one of many emails that I have been typing out for many inquirers;
this relays the accurate and horrific situation of current news with gun industry
There are no defense shotguns Mossberg or otherwise at any of the nation's large distributors. this is a repeat outcome of past political incidents yet now much worse because of the medical situations that developed and are still continuing; nationwide frantic purchasing and searching for EVERYTHING guns and ammo and accessories that clearly most firearm owners or those newly interested in guns should have already secured last month, last year, the last three years - has crashed into the most accelerated timeframe that has never been seen in history. March 16 (a Monday) is when I saw dramatic purchasing of distributor inventories, depleting any products available at whirlwind pace.
several distributor reps told me this morning "this is only beginning". I agree.
you can use my ffl copy to forward to a seller on mainland if you find Mossberg or other ones you like if found at reasonable prices, and remember there would be shipping costs from the shipper. My FFL transfer fees are very reasonable.
I will send my FFL in a separate email to you.
Kaneohe Gun Shop
Locally and nationwide the selling majority continues price gouging
And while I have never gouged and refuse to participate in such antics - be
prepared to overpay from places that obviously have no qualms about that

Want to protect yourself, family and loved ones?
Interested in shooting sports or collecting firearms;
preserving and building up on valuable investments
that you, friends or family already own? Get active
in firearms, prioritize and secure guns & parts now
before divisive politics and social media influence
more of the United States which will drive anti-gun
sentiment into votes; irreversible restrictive laws.
Learn facts, start permit process and get moving!
There will be election developments before you know it;
costs will rise & time spent on procedures will increase!
Get ready: Politics involving firearms (limitations & restrictions)
are heating up! All those who kept waiting and procrastinating
on purchasing mag-fed semiauto military rifles over the past 3
years had better secure some and get AR-15 lower receivers
before unexpected/unstoppable issues put more laws in effect!
HPD Firearms procedures : all by appointment only
It is important to secure firearms, parts and ammo:
Always be prepared; the evil and undesirable will continue unseen...
Everyone must recognize unstoppable measures are in the future
No gun laws will stop evil doers from conducting their crimes
Only the good citizens will be affected by firearm restrictions
Why can't the majority of Americans acknowledge that fact?
Media, celebrities, and now an incredible number of younger citizens -
this is the unimaginable yet real outcome of what I referred to in 2016:
"Everyone must realize that unstoppable measures are in the future..."
Always more misdirected anti-gun sentiment and frenzied social media;
accumulated public outcry resulting from tragic events involving firearms
You or I or any good person - cannot guarantee stopping all evil or evil doers.
No additional restrictions or legislation could protect everyone every second.
Hawaii Legislative session has introduced bills of serious concern:
HB1303 expanding and inclusions of 'assault weapon' definitions
HB1531 restating definitions plus naming specific 'assault' firearms
04/12/18 No one would have imagined Vermont having firearm restrictions!
> No purchase within Vermont (or online/out-of-state) of rifle mags over 10 rounds, pistol mags over 15 rounds.
Retailers allowed to sell magazine inventory until October 1, 2018. Individuals allowed to keep mags they own.
> Background checks will be required for nearly all private gun transactions, beginning with governor's signature.
Vermont gun sellers and gun buyers will need to visit a FFL dealer who is willing to conduct background check
and facilitate transfer for a reasonable fee. Immediate family members are exempt from background checks.
> People younger than 21 not allowed to purchase firearms unless hunter safety course completed.
Firearm sellers are expected to uphold law or face $1,000 fine and up to 1 year in prison.
Law enforcement officers, members of military and veterans exempt from age restriction.
> People at "extreme risk" of suicide or violence required to relenquish firearms up to six months.
> Bump stocks must be surrendered by October 1, 2018; no grandfather allowance on bump stocks.
> September 1: expansion of police officer's power to remove firearms from scene of domestic assault arrest.
07/09/19 And now, be aware of this development in the state of Virginia
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Deep-pocketed interest groups and activists on both sides of the long-running fight
over gun laws are gearing up for a major clash in Virginia, now a key election battleground in the issue after
Republicans on Tuesday adjourned a special legislative session called by the governor to consider
gun-control measures after a mass shooting at a municipal building (Virginia Beach May 31, 2019).
there are many ways
Complete AR15 rifles, stripped lower receivers and complete uppers
are in stock - at my everyday low prices - no overpricing or gouging!
Always the lowest, reasonable pricing for a genuine brick & mortar storefront
Providing ETHICAL, HONEST, NO BULLSHIT recommendations and advice
on proven products I use and rely on, not just "another item to sell or markup"
I seek to find the best deals on quality proven firearms and products,
and will offer the lowest prices possible, rewarding repeat customers
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.
Factors considered on prioritizing: Demographics and local practicality
Priorities of shop inventory:
AR15 rifles, lowers, parts to build/repair ARs, Glock handguns, spare parts,
9mm - 5.56mm - 22lr ammunition, mags, few other popular calibers & mags,
few Surefire lights, reputable quality designed folding or fixed blade knives
Much of the decision is sensible; what will most people not only need now,
but also consider what will be sought after and be readily saleable/tradable!
- Firearms & Equipment Recommendations -
Not a priority for shop inventory:
.308 or larger calibers & firearms chambered for them, majority of revolvers,
most bolt/lever actions unless in .22lr, firearms circulating less than 10 years,
reloading items, binoculars, rangfinders, lasers, excess inventory of holsters.

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 -
POSTED: Fair Warning
Sorry, no service given to anyone who:
- Argues/whines about firearms permit requirements (there's no instant fix
for improving HI laws so don't try to teach me about how it is better in
other states) - You think I like the restrictions we have here in Hawaii?
No dealer can complete firearm transfers unless person clears requirements!
If we aren't involved with the good fight and political effort, we cannot complain.
- Proclaims that I don't seem to appreciate military service personel
because further discounts aren't offered on prices already as low
as possible yet somehow keep doors open as a gunshop in Hawaii.
- Insinuates they know more about firearms, training or tactics more than
others who haven't (as far as they think) served in a LE or MIL capacity.
(and often end up revealing they recognize only one side of numerous tactical situations)
- Projects an attitude of deserved entitlement because they are better than others -
or worse, brags about how much better they are since they conceal carry in other states.
If one is so superior, be humble and find out what it takes to bring others up to speed.
Amazing isn't it? There are those who go around presenting the above headaches
and I will not tolerate it - neither should the next good citizen in Hawaii or elsewhere
