Default Disposing of Ammunition Owned by Someone Who Dies

If this question has been answered elsewhere or should be posted in another forum, please point me in the right direction.

I'm helping someone just over the border in Nevada deal with her late husband's reloading gear and ammunition and it's been an eye-opening experience. If my wife goes before me, I call Got-Junk, point, and her stuff all disappears. If I go first, my wife has to deal with reloading supplies, firearms and ammunition. This is the kind of problem I do not need to dump in her lap if I croak unexpectedly.

I can work with an attorney to get the firearms taken care of and reloading gear is readily salable or transferable, but ammunition is a different animal, especially the centerfire ammunition I've loaded myself. It can't exactly be hauled away by Got-Junk, it can't be sent to a landfill, I'm not sure the dump will accept it as hazmat, and even though my stash is relatively small, she can't easily sell it. The family members who might be interested all live on the other side of the country (bad planning on my part) so getting them involved is impractical.

I'm going to send an inquiry to the California DOJ but I'm wondering if anyone else has had to deal with this and if so, what did they do?

Post it up on Calguns and I’m sure the c-notes will come.

No buddies who would take it? Shish I got like 20 buddies who would swoop in on my stash and they live all over the US.

Leave instructions for your wife to sell it on CalGuns! Seriously. She would be fighting off guys throwing money at her with a stick.

Or make an agreement with a couple close buddies. Don’t throw money away!

Go nuts and shoot it all now. Or if you croak before her she can just ignore it and pretend it isn't there and then when she croaks it's no longer her problem and someone else will have to worry about it.

Dispose of it in a lot of individual explosions.

For your stash. Keep a paper with your calguns username and password with the ammo with at purchased price. Tell her to post and it will all be gone in minutes.

If you don't want to turn it into cash, check with a couple local ranges.

Lot of folks don't trust other's handloads. The better documented, the bigger the market.

Of course, if you're going to be cremated, having her hide a bunch on your body would be pretty funny!! Not for the cremators, but still funny!!

Maybe have all your reloaded cartridges and your remains cremated in the same oven at the same time.
Just put some money aside to keep you on ice until or near the 4th of July.

Plenty guys here on Calguns think it's perfectly safe to throw live primers as well as cartridges in a local barbeque
pit or campfire near you.

My buddy’s friend kicked it. Under his friends bed was a box the widow was instructed not to touch, and to call my friend after his passing. Inside was a burp gun. Hopefully a LEO “saved” it after they picked it up.

Default Disposing of Ammunition Owned by Someone Who Dies

An old friend called to ask me if I would clean out his shop; two months before that I cleaned out his off campus office. It was much easier to ask him when he was alive about the important files and the files that should go to the family. Without him all of it would have gone to the dump.

The man was a gun smith, master machinist and master welder with two Doctorial Degrees. I cleaned out his shop he had over 800 257 Weatherby loaded rounds and 7MM Remington Mag rounds. I pulled all of the bullets from the 800 + rounds, I saved the cases and bullets; I could have used 90% of the powder from the loaded rounds, most of the ammo had been loaded for over 30 years. I offered to load for his son but he never expressed any interest in shooing rifles left to him by his father.

And now I own a 1891 Argentine chambered to 308 W, I was glad he lived long enough to explain that one. He claimed it was a loaner, he said when someone showed up without a rifle, he loaned the Argentine 308 to him.

Well that was instructive.

Do that OP.

The people I know have had shooting buddies assist with the dispositions. About half the time they get to inherit a firearm for their trouble. Also get first pick of non-firearm equipment. That's my current plan (for lack of a better word), as well.

Hambam; there was a cartoon circulating showing a bunch of surprised guys in a mortuary, one on the phone: "Ma'am, we're sorry for your loss, but the cremation staff didn't appreciate the fireworks you left in your husbands pockets."

Give away your stuff while you're still alive. Much easier.

I think most police agencies will dispose of ammo for free.

I gave my wife the address and phone number of the auction company Lock-Stock and Barrel in Simi Valley and told her to let them sell everything.

I had some abandoned ammo that I had to dispose of. I delivered it to the local PD. They were OK taking it.

The responses helped me come up with a course of action.

My brother is probably going to take everything if I pass before he does, although he's got health problems. Next in line will probably be a couple of nephews.

I'm going to talk to the local LE folks about any ammo that needs to be disposed of when and if the time comes.

Jack, for the love of Christ, give it away while you're still alive. It's much easier, you'll be happy, and the person that gets it will be happy.

I'll never get the idea of, you can have all this cool ****, but not until I die. Silliness

Good on you for looking for some answers. I think most of us probably have people that would put us in our grave if they thought we'd dispose of any ammo on our passing. In your case, if no one you know personally right now is interested, I would venture to bet there's an awesome Calgunner around here that'd you'd enjoy being friends with and when that unfortunate time comes, they'll gladly give you a 7,000 round salute with whatever you leave behind. I don't want to be materialistic, but the 2A is important enough to not let your hard work go to waste.

Looking back at my original post I see that I had forgotten to include an important bit of information. This question is all about what happens if I pass unexpectedly. Absent that kind of event, I'll know when it's time to start getting rid of stuff I'm no longer able to use.

But the other angle here is legal liability. If someone shoots loads I developed for my rifle in one of theirs and their weapon is damaged or they're injured or killed, however unlikely that event might be, I could end up leaving my wife with a bigger problem than the guns and ammo were to begin with. Not doin' that.

Rest assured that if no one in the family wants my reloading gear and supplies, I will make sure my wife knows how to find a good home for it. Maybe set up an auction (oh wait, that's against the Marketplace rules). My brother has agreed to take the guns and ammo if I croak before he does. I'm working on the backup plan if he goes first.

Thanks again for all the suggestions. They were helpful.

In my trust, one of my buddies is tasked with this to limit the wife's burden. Pick of the litter and discount of anything else. I'm fine with gifting any firearms to the NRA if the Mrs. doesn't need the $$$.

Pretty easy to state all ammo is for disassembly/parts only. What they do with it is then their problem.

If its cash and carry and no receipt, there is no way they could sue you without the proof they bought it from you and you loaded that ammo. Almost impossible to prove in court. Even factory ammo has issues. I wouldn't worry. Sell it now and leave your wife the cash to pamper herself. Give them disclaimer...Use at your own risk.

Or use the money to take a trip now and enjoy yourself while you can. Or donate the money to CGF, CPRA or the NRA.... or whatever. Build a monument to yourself... Numerous dudes will snap that stuff up in a heartbeat.

I bought some ammo at a gun show years ago.
Seller ran a small range and this was supposed to be what people left behind when they packed up.
SOLD AS COMPONENTS ONLY.
Great prices for what I picked up and the seller asked me 3 times about what I intended to do with the ammo.
Bought as components, sold as components, will be returned to components.

Had a guy call once, his friend's father passed away and left some reloading equipment and bullets to the son.
The wife didn't want the stuff in the house so rather then throw it away he was looking for $200.
The guy didn't know anything about any of it but that his dad was a shooter and reloaded.

Turned out to be mostly all factory loads in the factory boxes with some manufactured reloads in plastic boxes complete with the manufacturer's name.
The reloading equipment was older and not complete, hadn't been used in many years.
I wasn't real interested but the dillon tumbler and plastic boxes were worth the $100 I gave him for the 4+ thousand rounds of assorted ammo in 10 different calibers.

That's what happens when you don't have an exit strategy.
