My brother is visiting us in CA, he found a Savage 10FP in .308 (in my safe) and he wants to bring it back home. What does he need to transfer it?

Is there someone in Hilo that can help?

....HPD Link.....

There is no 14-day waiting period for out of state registration. Once the firearm arrives in the state you have 3 calendar days to bring it, with valid photo identification and proof of citizenship if born outside the United States, to the HPD Firearms Section.
