    Hawaiin Gun Culture?

    Well, the Government was nice enough to let me off for the Holidays, so I'll be round here for a little while again (so much reading to catch up on).

    Anyways, heres a question for you guys, who knows anything about the gun culture out in Hawaii? Is there one? I think I recall hearing CCW permits don't really get issued there. But is there any hunting to do out there or anything?

    Any input on the issue would be appreciated.

    Last I heard, there is only 1 civilian CCW issued now that the Chief of Police has had his wife's CCW revoked from civilian complains about favortism. That one is to the Police Armourer.

    You can hunt wild pigs on Oahu year round. I don't know any specifics to it outside of a couple guys doing it frequently in my unit when I was stationed there.

    There is at least one okay outdoor range in Hawaii (I think it's on the windward side, but can't really remember). Went shooting there once with a few Marine buddies. It was a good atmosphere. Outside of recreational shooting, forget it. You won't get a permit and the restrictions for even owning a handgun are pretty annoying. Granted I'm from Kentucky though, so YMMV.

    I was stationed at Pearl for 6 years awhile back. I hunted 'kilua' pigs with a .22 magnum in the mountians above Aiha (sp?). There is (was) one small gun range out past Diamond Head, but guns overall are frounded upon VERY highly and NO CARRY AT ALL!! Hunting was allowed but extreemly regulated......but boy do those Hawaiians LOVE those little wild pigs cooked in a pit!

    Hawaii is worse than Cali. as far as guns are concerned.

    not exactly what your seeking here but

    I was in Hawaii for two weeks in about 1980. The lady I was with had a doctor friend that lived on Maui. His greatest hunting pleasure was to sit on his porch facing the road with his back to the beach and shoot the rats running away from the burning sugar cane fields. So much for useless but interesting information on my part. I do wish I had the opportunity to try that myself though.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I would just enjoy the islands for what they are, and not worry about guns. Flame away.

    Yeah, I'll enjoy the islands. I already planned on leaving pretty much all my weapons in Ohio anyway, just wanted to know what the deal was out there.

    Besides, as a grunt I pretty much constantly have something that goes bang in my hands.
