Default I have a new gun buy back idea.

do you think they check if they are real guns? why not make a mold, and cast some cheap revolver look alikes.

A body with a short barrel ,maybe some holes to in the main cylinder to look like chambers

cut some wood into hands, and make some really cheap stub nose look alikes, that are rusted, so the cops will be none the wiser, so it takes about 15$ to make one after a 100 gift card this is still a 85$ profit

can the gift cards be exchanged for cash?

In the eyes of the law, would I be doing anything illegal?

Don't know if it's legal but I LIKE IT.

It's been awhile but Portland PD does these every few years so I I'm keeping my eye out for those $20 gun show Lorcins.

This is the ONE area where I LOVE to screw the taxpayer!

Tack

Well, at least you know you are not selling back illegal firearms.

I believe it was earler this year that gun dealers set up outside a gun buy back in Or. and paid the people turning in guns a little more then they were offering at the gun buy back. It was legal because they were liscened gun dealers.

Is what you propose legal?

Do I look like a lawyer?





However, you MAY want to spend some time researching the term FRAUD. And yes, most of the "buy backs" do have someone to separate BB guns from real guns. Here in VA, any "buy back" must include a Stae Police Rep- they check for stolen guns.

If I were to guess, you would probably be guilty of fraud. If, for some reason they couldn't get you with that, they would find something. Remember, they govt gets to screw you as much as they wish. If you return the favor, it's very likely a criminal act, at least in the eyes of of the justice system. Two or three of those $100 cards, and you're a felon if they wish to make an example out of you.

Also, your plan sounds an awful lot like actual work. Casting, drilling & making grips. A fair bit of time & skill would be required to make your product convincing to more than a casual glance.
If I were to guess, they probably log them in with at least a serial number and very likely a brand name. A fair bit of detail would be needed.

Seems to me, a sweep of the local pawn shops might be easier.
