TRANSFERRING A FIREARM TO OGC (FFL TRANSFER)
OGC only accepts transfers from FFL dealers, not
individuals. If you wish to have a
firearm transferred to you from an individual, please have it shipped to us by
the individual’s local FFL dealer.
The FFL fee per transfer is $40/Firearm,
Duty Military or LE members with valid credentials pay $25/Firearm.
Unless special arrangements are prearranged in writing (for active duty deployment, etc), OGC will store firearms awaiting pickup from FFL transfers at no cost for 90 days. After 90 days a storage fee will accrue at $32/month. When either 2 years have elapsed, or the accrued storage fees exceed the retail purchase price of the firearm, OGC is authorized to sell the firearm as they see fit to recoup storage costs. OGC may waive or discount these fees at their discretion.
Please do not have pistol magazines with a
capacity of over 10 rounds shipped with your firearm. They are against the law in HI. There are ways to legally block magazines to
10 rounds to comply with HI State Law, but we do not do that as part of FFL
services. Rifle magazines State not

Please note, the below is a modified extract from the Hawai'i Police Department Website
It in no way constitutes legal advice and is merely intended to provide information to assist a FFL transfer recipient in understanding the HI permit process.
According to Chapter 134 of the Hawai?i Revised Statutes, “Firearms, Ammunition and Dangerous Weapons,” all firearms in Hawai?i must be registered whether or not they are serviceable and no matter how they are acquired.
Permit to Acquire
If you wish to acquire or take possession of a handgun or wish to acquire a shotgun or rifle for the first time, you must be at least 21 years old and a United States citizen. You must apply for a permit to acquire a firearm. If you were not born in the United States, you will need to provide proof of U.S. citizenship.
HRS 134-2 states: “No person shall acquire the ownership of a firearm, whether usable or unusable, serviceable or unserviceable, modern or antique, registered under prior law or by prior owner or unregistered, either by purchase, gift, inheritance, bequest, or in any other manner, whether procured in the state or imported by mail, until the person has first procured from the chief of police of the county of the person’s place of business or…residence…a permit to acquire the ownership of a firearm as prescribed in this section.”
For the complete wording of the state law governing firearm permits, see Section 134-2 of the Hawai?i Revised Statutes.
You must apply for a separate permit for each handgun you wish to acquire, but only one permit is required for rifles or shotguns no matter how many you wish to acquire with in year’s time. Before you are granted a permit to purchase a handgun, you must successfully complete a hunter education class or a Hawaii specific gun safety course conducted by an instructor certified by the National Rifle Association (Offered by OGC and others)
If currently Active Duty Military and currently qualified with a handgun, you can get a notarized military exemption letter from your command.
The applicant for a handgun permit must provide proof of a State of Hawai?i Hunter Education course or an HI handgun safety class affidavit signed by a certified NRA instructor (or a military exemption letter as above). The affidavit signed by the certified firearms instructor who conducted or taught the course (providing the name, address, and phone number of the instructor and attesting to the successful completion of the course by the applicant) shall constitute evidence of certified successful completion under this paragraph.
Fees — you will be charged a one-time fee of $16.50 (subject to change) for a fingerprint check if you are seeking a permit for the first time. No fee is charged if you are seeking a second or subsequent permit to acquire a firearm. Payment must be made by Money Order, Cashier’s Check, or exact change cash only. PLEASE BE AWARE THE RAPBACK SYSTEM HAS ADDED AN ADDITIONAL ONE TIME FEE TO FIRST REGISTRATION OR PERMITS.
There is a minimum waiting period of 14 calendar days between the time you apply for a permit and the time you may be granted the permit. This waiting period gives the Police Department time to conduct a background check to make sure you are eligible for a permit to acquire.
Persons are not eligible to own or possess a firearm or ammunition if:
Once you receive a permit to acquire a firearm, and take possession before the permit expires, you must register all firearms with the Police Department within five days (rifle) or two days (pistol) of purchase or acquisition.
If you move to Hawai?i and bring in a firearm of any description, you must register the firearm within 72 hours after the firearm enters the state. If you were not born in the United States, you will need to provide proof of U.S. citizenship.
Before coming to the police station (at home or at the gun dealer’s establishment):
Please be advised that if the firearm is not “open” and visually safe for inspection prior to coming into the station, we will not be able to register it. You may be asked to leave with your firearm and return during the next working day or next available appointment.
If for any reason you bring a loaded firearm or a firearm and ammunition into the police station, you may be subject to arrest. If you are unsure about procedure, secure your firearm and ask for assistance.
Once you register a firearm, the registration will remain valid until you sell or otherwise dispose of the weapon.
