Default Rant - Gun disposal gun buy back?

Hello Cal Guns perusers!

I just got off the phone with my local police station and I'm shocked at their lack of gun knowledge. I basically have a paperweight because I messed up my lower (we all know how that goes) and I need to properly dispose of it.

The officer I spoke with told me to throw it in the trash...

I let him know that I was disposing of a firearm and he asked if it was serialized. I said no, since this was milled from an 80% lower. He goes on to ask whether or not it was a firearm. I explained that this is what is used to build an AR and then he asked for my address. This made me feel uneasy.

Thoughts?

MODS move this where it needs to go.

If you hear the choppers, hop on a boat to go on a "fishing" trip.

Is this a parody thread? I don't get it. You need a serial number fro that lower now-a-days.

Why not just cut it up yourself ? Why call the police unless your looking to cash out on a buy back.

LOL calguns consist of the following people:

People who tells on the RO when they see someone with no bullet button or standard cap

People who call their local police department to ask them gun questions

People who are willing to rush to the front of the police station to turn in their guns when, god forbid, a law passes that requires everyone to turn in the guns.

Y'all bunch of fuds.

What(!) were, you, thinking OP? If it isn't serialized, why it is not serialized is NOT the conversation we're having right now, why did you call Johnny Law?

Nothing good can possibly come from doing that. Now you really cannot simply toss the lower you somehow (it happens) ruined. Good luck OP. Hopefully Johnny Law doesn't show up and execute everyone in your house under the auspices of 'searching for an unregister AW'.

Worried for you OP.

OP could have:
1) googled "how to legally destroy a firearm"
2) asked on calguns
3) tossed it into the closet & forgotten about it
4) sold it at a buyback

Instead, he has the current situation.

No, we dont "all know how that goes" I've never messed up a lower trying to bubba one.

So you call the police, your first mistake, then you dont take their advice when they tell you just to throw it away, your second mistake, then you go on to tell them they dont know what they are talking about, until they decide maybe your worth checking out?

Why would you even call the police? Its an 80% lower you already messed it up why not just throw it in the trash? why not just drill a hole through it and throw it away as you said its a paper weight. This whole post makes no sense.

Depending on how you messed it up it can be repaired. I milled the trigger pocket and the surrounding area too deep. I mixed up some job weld and put it in the bottom. After it set up I remilled the lower and it works great. I figure if polymer is good enough, jb weld is better. Also isn’t it illegal to mill an 80% lower any longer in California? I may be wrong as I don’t liver there any longer.

Can you take a stripped 80% with a bad mill job to the gun buy back ?
How much is it worth ?

Remove all optics. Seperate all uppers/lowers even the hand guns and remove mags. Remove the cylinders from rev and place all ammo at a secret location. Go on the boating trip sooner then planed. Good luck and be sure to ask if you are being detained and if they have a warrent....

I just read a post by someone who has been a member here for four and a half years and I'm shocked at their lack of gun knowledge.

I bought two 80% lowers in case the first one didn't go as planned.
So now I have (at least) 2 functioning lowers.
The good news is, I moved out of CA last year and markings, or the lack of, are now a non-issue for me.
