    That program is a great idea. I think I need to get some kids to fund my gun buy back program. I am sure a few very nice, collectable and expensive guns would find their way to it. As a historian and preservationist I would of course preserve those guns that need preserving, secure all of those nasty black assault rifles away from dangerous government hands. And all of rest, the non-functional historically insignificant and worthless ones could be scrapped for art.

    I think some trap clubs should do this. Great idea.

    They have a gun buy back in my area about once a year. I have started looking for and buying Clarke and RG pistols for $25.00 - $50.00 with the intent to sell them at the buy back for $100.00 each. I suggest everyone to do the same. It is a great way to fund your next trap gun upgrade.

    Last year I sold them an old Model 94 that had been burnt up in a fire. It had been burned so bad that the barrel was bent nearly 180 degrees back on itself. Collect those old junk and parts guns and make good use of them at the buy back.

    we have a local church that has a gun buy back program and offer 25.00 We set up a couple of house's down and offered 50-75.00 each It set the preacher off but we did get quite a few guns.

    Also a visit from the local police we told him we had an ffl everything was done legal and to have a nice day Besides there's no law that prohibits private purchase's

    I couldn't believe that they paid 25.00 for a bunch of the cheap blank and tear gas pistols you bought for 9.95 in magazines that's a pretty good profit

    Sometime ago I acquired 6 old long guns (4 shotguns & 2 .22 cal's). I operated on them, i.e., shortened barrels & stocks (but still legal), also disabled the firing pins so they could never be fired.

    I waited until the state conducted their no questions asked buy back program and in 2 separate trips, turned in the street modified weapons.

    Net result: $600.00 in Visa cards (12 flats of Top Guns @ Dick's)...Priceless!!!

    I called the Superintendent of the State Police (actual friend of mine) and asked him to send my thanks to the Governor and the other stupid legislators that funded this most worthwhile project. I also requested that I be added to their mailing list so I can be ready for the next buy back....

    I'm starting to think that there is a true use for democrats...
