    when i was a kid i had a RG .22 pistol my dad bought from the mail man for $15 i think.

    it had every flaw a pistol revolver could have and as a kid shooting it with cheap bricks of 22 LR it began to develop a few new bad habits--like shaving the bullets, out of time cylinder and swelled up cylinder holes--LOL==

    i would have been glad to have give that one to the police for $100--

    i think it became so dangerous to use i took my welder and welded it into a solid mass just so no one else would try to shoot the thing-- a real turkey it was--

    No offense stalker, but I wouldn't give the asshats the satisfaction of having them think they're doing something right.

    stalker depending on the buy back you hit their can be some good deals to be had. Guys are showing up at them and putting up signs to talk to them before turning them in. This where legal to do private sales like here in Florida. Trying to remember where it was, but a bit back somebody turned in a full auto WWII Thompson Grandpa had sitting in their family closet.
    Wonder where that ended up??

    Wink Oh here they are..

    Rocket launchers turned in during L.A. gun buyback not functional


    Police say the launchers appear to be antitank weapons. Authorities collected more than 2,000 weapons in exchange for supermarket gift cards.

    Guess they were non firing anti tank rockets?

    yes recently someone showed up with a stg 44, it was going to be destroyed until a museum found out and it was donated,

    In NJ when they have buy backs, they clean out the evidence room to tell folks they were turned in, to show the taxpayers they are not getting RG pistols and ravens, and grandpas old single barrel shotgun, what a con

    out west my buddy sits out the gun buy back hall looking for WW 2 souviners he has picked up a few Jap rifles this way for cheap cause they were gonna get a voucher for $50

    It sucks to give them anything they can show as there actions being a success . I think its funny when people turn in junk that wont ever work any way .

    I saw saiga stocks some were for about 2$ each i as thinking some Zip guns made for about $10 would turn a good profit at one oft those deals . You would be likely of manufacturing with intent to sell however .

    Yea some idiot turn in a inert useless shoulder fired rocket tube an it makes the news as if they saved thousands of lives .Whats even more sad is the LEO,s have no glue its junk.\

    MY X mother in law turned in a lot of the family fire arms so she could a voucher for shoes . i know there was at least on model 70 winchester deer rifle an a very nice remington shot gun . Dumb bitch could have sold them easy for around a grand ..Im sure y son her grandson would have loved to have had some of his great grand fathers guns

    I have also heard reports of guns being stolen to turn in
