I had thought of that (even had ample cash just in case) but in CA it is illegal to transfer firearms without a FFL and going through the waiting period. It may even be a felony (not sure about that) to do a FTF transfer without the FFL doing a DROS. Does not apply for C&Rs older than 50 years. I was really hoping to see an old musket or something worthwhile that was exempt. That would be a hoot, getting an old Pennsylvania Rifle or something out of it!

One could probably get away with it in any case because there did not appear to be any DOJ or BATF representatives present, only SFPD.

Here's an article on the buyback, all told they got nearly 600 guns. I am planning on finding a bunch more for the next one (I know more than enough SF residents who will serve as straw man sellers for me- no laws against that!).

All told, nearly 600 guns -- from vintage World War rifles to modern day assault weapons -- are now in storage waiting to be melted down and turned into light posts, park benches and stop signs.

If I had seen a Garand or an M1 Carbine I probably- no I would have- made an offer or traded the junkers I brought in. I did see a 1911 but didn't get the opportunity to talk to the gal who had it before some other guy told her to keep it and she left with it. Next time the do this I will be more prepared, go early and just hand out in the halls looking for something I want. Maybe have a dozen or more junkers out in the truck to trade off for good guns. A plan. That's what I need. A good plan.

I figure some people are doing just that. I myself will not turn in anything that is still operational, even a Mosin, just to make a buck.
