Welcome to the board.

I live in NY, but was out in HI just last week. My wife & I visited Honolulu and Maui, and had a great time. While walking in Honolulu, I noticed a store sign which read "Shoot Real Gun" and entered the place to check it out. Turns out it was a "Range" which appeared to simply exist for the purpose of briefly renting semi-auto pistols and rifles to Japanese tourists for a test fire. Shooters had the option of firing one mag out of each of several guns. One of the packages cost about $200 and allowed the shooter a chance to fire around 1 mag out of each of five semi-auto rifles. I asked the girl at the desk if it was also a regular club that locals could join to shoot, and she said no.

By some miracle, our hotel happened to be right next to the US Army Museum of Hawaii. I've posted a pic here of the museum from our hotel room. I spent about two hours inside, checking out the various small arms specimens which were on display.

We also visited Maui. About the only gun/military related thing we ran across was an apparent county range called Yukehami (or something like that) which was close to Lahaina on Rt 30. I'm sure there are other ranges there further away from the tourist-trap areas.

Mark,
We actually drove the rental car down the road towards the range on or about 7/26. I saw a sherrif's car, and two other cars as well as a few guys shooting. We did not get out of the car, but perhaps should have as you might have been there at that time.
I was surprised to see a range there, much less so close to the beach. Hopefully, it won't get torn down and replaced with condos or houses; or closed due to anti-gun political pressure.

Just out of curiosity, how far can you shoot? It appeared to be limited to pistol and shotgun distances.
Thanks.
