Detroit offered up one of those... IRC $50.

Several people parked outside the entrance with signs offering $100 CASH. Couple of guys scored some good stuff.

Baltimore had one today. $100.00 gift cards. Line was 500 people deep. No ID needed As many guns as you want. The only problem is they were recording serial numbers it took forever.

The results of gun buy backs is about numbers. Every gun brought in is a yes vote for these gun control activist. I would not vote yes for gun control and would never sell a vote.

I didn't know you could legally do that. I'd like to do that some day.

Advertising and buying firearms in a public place for cash? You are pushing the Fedral Law on occasional purchase by an idividual farther than I would go.

If I did that, I wouldn't just pay the cash and get the gun in the parking lot. I'd make sure to have the gun checked out first, and then transferred through a FFL. If someone wasn't willing to do that, I'd pass on it.

If the guns were stolen, the police will show up looking to collect them. MI law requires all firearm purchases to be recorded and registered. No need to have an FFL involved. There were some great scores. If it was a junk firearm, they would pass.

I went and turned in 2 guns. They ran out of cash sometime during the day so they were issuing IOU's instead. There were some real clunkers there but also some nice hardware. I saw one gal who had an old 1911, didn't get a good look at it but the dude net to her talked her into leaving with it. They had people lined up and down the hallways (the Boy's Club is an old school building) facing each other so as the line moved you were talking to somebody new and showing what you were turning in. One dude had an old Uberti SA revolver in .357 magnum new in the box. A guy on the other side of the hall traded him the two rifles he was going to turn in and walked out with the Uberti. That would have been very tempting. Another guy had a Mac 10. Lots and lots of really decent firearms but also a lot more crap. If it was not illegal I would have made a bunch of killer deals.

So anyhow, it took a couple of hours waiting in line, but I made $400 on it. I am going to keep my eyes open for some more junkers to turn in the next time.
