Moving to Honolulu looking for information please

Recommended Posts

Looks like we might be moving to Honolulu this coming fall. And I am looking for information about USPSA or IDPA type competition there.

1. I guess I should bring nothing but 10 rounds magazines with me right?

2. I was wondering about reloading 9mm there, what is it like to get components?

3. Is there 3 gun on the island?

4. Also any another pertinent things I might need to know would be helpful.

Thanks

Ed

Check out the guys over at Kokohead.

Go to Mid Pacific Pistol League (mppl.net) and check their schedule and there are two more groups HPS (Hawaii Practical Shooters) and Rhat Rhat Boyz.

It's easier to get stuff like powder and primers on Oahu than the outer islands and buy your bullets on-line using USPS flat rate shipping.

There are some multi-gun matches but not like on the mainland.

You have to register your guns (not magazines) at the police station when you/it gets here. When registering your gun(s), I would leave the mags at home.

Okay thanks for the information.

So should I leave my hi cap magazines state side or is it like Maryland where you can bring hi cap mags into the state you just can buy them there?

High cap pistol mags are illegal here, anything over 10 rounds

Misdemeanor for possession, class C felony if inserted into a handgun

You can bring high cap mags provided they are modified to only hold 10 round and are not readily restorable to hold more, what ever that means

Like HI50 said, register the guns, leave the mags at home

We are only going to be there 3 years, so no plans on dumping my hi cap mags.....way to many. Looks like I will leave them state state side.

Do people tend to sell their 10 round mags when heading back to the mainland? I was mainly looking for glock and pmags or am best to grab what I need before I leave the mainland?

I don't know, most people never left here.

Get what you can before you get here, most places here are higher priced than there (mainland).

Ar's are ok

No NFA, no assault pistols (ar,ak,10-22, hk sp89, type pistols)

Same thing, rifles and shotguns must be registered with the county police, again leave the mags at home

I would find 10 round factory glock mags before you move

Pmags are available at most gun stores here
