I scanned through the other thread on this subject but didn't see what I was looking for.

A friend at work has a girlfriend that has some cheapie junk gun that her uncle gave her. It's clearly illegal and he wants her to get rid of it. Are there "no questions asked" drop offs all the time at police stations or do they have to wait for an organized one? They are in the LA area.

Thanks!

Remove the parts. sell as a parts 'kit' on gunbroker for $30-50 (even junk gun kits get some cash for the parts).

Frame + sledge hammer = trash.

If I owned a non-registered junk gun and wanted to get rid of it, I would break out the torch and melt it down myself before ever being a part of one of those anti-gun glorification media days.

Nah.
What you wanna do is wait for the next local gun buyback and you can score an easy $100 gift card.

Call your local gun shop. They may take the parts off your hands.

They were giving $200 for "AW" types.

cheap junk illigal gun... Tec22? or Tec9?

The frames are easily destroyed by throwing them in a fire, and the parts are quite valuable.

Glue a dowel to the barrel. Paint it black.

BTW...how junky? There are some guns out there that look pretty junky but are really decent guns.

For instance, this one which looked like it was dragged behind a truck when I got it...

With some love and a little cash was turned into this gun....

Hmmm, maybe those could solve some cold case murders, no?:p

I offered to have him bring it over to me to I could cut it up for him, but he declined. Probably better to not have an illegal weapon in my place anyway.

From what I understand, it's a junky little .22 pistol and nothing worth saving or trying to sell as parts.

I'm point him to this thread and let him chose the manner of destruction ;)

Are there "no questions asked" drop offs

Sure. We Californians refer to it as "Nevada".

LOL! While truly a tongue in cheek truth.... I wouldn't do it! Transportation of a stolen/illegal weapon...NO THANKS!

Do you know what makes it illegal? If it's an old Saturday night special put it on Gunbroker or something. Those arn't illegal, you just can't buy them new or from out of state. People actually collect those. Heck, I wouldn't mind having one.

heres an idea (dunno if its legal or not), what if a person used a cutting torch to cut the frame/receiver apart (demilled, right?) and effectively destroyed it. and then if there was a gun buy back, the owner spot welded the halves / thirds / quarters together simply for appearance values to get that gift card? ;)
