    Okay, let's say some of the prizes at a shoot were going to be good, but pre-owned guns.

    What would you think?

    Pre-owned guns as a prize. Hell i'm always game for more guns. If its not a gun you particularly want, you can easily trade them for something you do. I think its a good idea but realistically what kinda guns are you gonna find cheap enough to give as prizes?

    You'd need, at minimum, a gunsmith who would sign off (one a form to accompany the gun) a letter stating the condition and safety of the gun. I can see ALL SORTS of liability issues for the club or individuals if you were to give away guns and one should blow up somewhere down the line. These guns would also need to be transferred in accordance w/ all state, local, and federal laws.

    Nah... guns make terrible prizes just like pictures or statues or belt buckles or money clips or any of a dozen other things picked by a committee that can't figure out either what kind of stuff would make good prizes.

    They're all like giving a guy a tie as a prize.

    Hell I'd take a BB gun. It would be better than some of the things I have won.

    Any gun in good mechanical and cosemtic shape new or used would suit me fine as a trophy.

    But as was said earlier, How are your going to get guns cheap enough for prizes? i order the awards for my clubs shoots, and we don't spend that much on them. We get nice precious metal beltbuckles for top gun and something nice for second, but we don't spend 150 per event. this is still more than any other club around gives away. There isn't that much money made on these events to buy guns that anybody would get excited about. Unless of course you are talking about a state level event. I don't know what kind of profits thay make on them. We do about 60 to 70 rounds per event.
