I'm gonna start to "beat the bushes" for junk unrepairable guns from friends and family.

Dumb question: Do BB guns qualify, because I've been told they can be "just as dangerous" and should be treated like any other gun. I've also heard they are good for Parole Violation, even in inoperable condition, because of "metallic projectile".

Go build a rifle or pistol out of water pipe and plywood - saw one that was built for a buyback that used waterpipe and a screw on cap drilled for a nail with a rubber band to drive the striker nail. It was a workable and cheap pistol for the buyback. If the buyback pays $300 apiece and it costs you $5 in pipe and plywood and some springs/rubber bands, make some Christmas money at $295 apiece!

You can not make firearms for resale without a license... can you make firearms for buyback without a license? IE If I build 10 or so legal single shot pistols and get $$$ for them at the gun buyback am I in violation of the manufacturing law???

I don't know. But I think buy back are no questions asked
Anyway if they are giving out 300 a piece I might have some working prototypes that I will give back

IIRC it was $200 CASH, not "gift cert".

I figure "no questions asked" is win-win because if they do give you any static you could put that all over the WWW and stink up the buy back with FUD.

Gonna wonder what happens if you are transporting a gun to the buy back and get stopped by the cops and by transporting the gun you are bending some law.

I don't think too many guns are riding to the event in locked boxes, and I'm sure several wont be in the trunk either if you got van or wagon.


PS-WHAT ABOUT ANOTHER ONE IN SF BAY AREA???? San Jose??? Sac? Stockton? all dumps with lots of gang shootings.

Good news! I have a Rohm revolver that's worth maybe $50 in working condition, but due to light strikes it only fires about every 3 or 4 rounds. Guess I can put the money towards one that works.

If I had my old take down ar-7 and my POS marlin 795 I would trade both of those in. That would give me enough to buy a Ruger 10-22 takedown or an S&W 15-22.

I'm also very interested, if the price is $300 I might have to buy a crate of nagant revolvers....

You know, I can't imagine this isn't illegal given the state's prohibitions against zipguns. No too sure it's a good idea to try this.

The cops will give you a $100 Ralph's gift card for a hand gun, and $200 Ralph's gift card for an "assault rifle". No cash in exchange.

I guess you can defend yourself with a bag of carrots if needed.

Anyone been to one of these? Wonder if you can score some deals by offering someone a little more and convincing them to go to an FFL.
