Firearm Registration Forms

Hawaii stipulates that any firearm within the confines of the state’s borders must be registered. In order to first procure a gun, it will be required to apply and become approved for a Permit to Acquire. Upon receiving the permit, you will be permitted to buy a weapon, which must then be immediately registered within the first five days of the purchase. Many counties have a different procedure to register, so contacting your county sheriff’s office is suggested before application. The registration process will obligate an applicant to get hold of the following documents for submission:

  • A current Permit to Acquire Firearms
  • Photo identification with a valid driver’s license, identification card, passport, military ID, or green card.
  • Material evidence of U.S. citizenship
  • Contact information for the dealer or individual that sold you the weapon, such as the name, phone number, and address.
  • The firearm must be brought to the local precinct for inspection. Keep in mind the following guidelines when presenting the firearm on the location:
    • The weapon must be unloaded and safeguarded in a gun case.
    • Confirm there is no live ammunition loaded in the gun (expel the clip, clear the chamber, remove the bolt).
    • Double-check that the gun appears to be open upon immediate visual inspection (either the slide to the gun is moved back and open, or the rotating apparatus on the revolver is disjoined from the gun).
    • Do not under any circumstance bring live ammunition with you onto the property when bringing the gun in for inspection.
    • Should an individual choose not to follow the instructions mentioned above, there is a possibility that you could be disbarred from the facility and/or arrested.
  • Payment to settle all necessary registration fees
