    New member from georgia moving to Hawaii.

    I have carried concealed for years but have just recently joined DefensiveCarry. I am currently in the U.S. Army and I am stationed at Fort Stewart, GA. I have just received orders to go to Hawaii. I have heard several different stories about carrying weapons in Hawaii and I was wondering if anyone here could give me some insight to how it is there? Thanks

    In short, no. I am based in Hawaii right now, you are not going to get a concealed carry liscense. You have to register every gun you bring out with the Honolulu PD (I am assuming you will be going to Schoffield barracks), and probably with the MPs on base as well. I didn't even bother bringing any of mine out here, it is an extremely unfriendly state for gun owners.

    And some more places for you to look: http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/hawaii.pdf

    And the Honolulu PD FAQ: HPD

    Feel free to ask me any more specific questions, and I will try and answer them for you.

    Welcome to the forum. Enjoy your tour (except for the lousy gun laws.)

    Welcome from Southwestern Virginia. Ew sounds like one dark cloud without a silver lining. Sorry to hear about the loss of your 2nd Amendment rights. Add Hawaii to my list of places "I" will never live.
