So, my friend's brother-in-law works at a pawn shop. He gets a lot of deals on firearms. He sees all sorts of stuff come in. I was told this sad story tonight... Recently, a guy brings in a firearm to sell to the pawn shop. A clerk takes it in for $250. The clerk (which works at the other of the two pawn shop locations) calls the brother-in-law of my friend to ask him if he wanted to purchase this firearm before they put it out on the shelf. He knows the brother-in-law collects classic firearms... The brother-in-law doesn't want to drive all the way over to the other location for a dud, so he asks what it is. The clerk says it's a BAR. Thinking it might be a regular, modern day Browning BAR (they have a lot of models labeled with BAR, not just the military rifle), he asks some other details. From the sound of it, this is a genuine WWII BAR. The brother-in-law races over to the pawn shop's other location to see it and buy it. When he gets there, he finds out it IS a BAR, but it is a full auto BAR and was not registered by the 1986 cut-off date. The clerk who took it in had no idea it was even class III. He wouldn't have been allowed to take in the FA BAR if he had known. Not wanting to get the store and himself in a heap of BATF trouble, they call the batf boys and have them take it away. Another classic firearm is now gone for good. It is so sad to think that BAR will be destroyed. I said to my friend that his brother-in-law should've bought it and immediately destroyed the receiver. The parts alone are worth three times that $250 price tag.
