A friend has a .22 that pops out of his belt-buckle. It's like a holster in a way. I don't think they're illegal everywhere. While looking around at them online I found this Nazi one that actually shoots from the belt.

Authorities recovered 53 assault weapons, 791 handguns, 527 rifles, 302 shotguns and one anti-tank rocket launcher.

Man, I HATE articles that don't give us more details. Because WHO THE F*CK had an anti-tank rocket launcher and what did the cops say/do/think when someone hauled that out of the trunk of his car?

The city netted 1,673 firearms, a four-year low, at the buyback program last May. Authorities recovered 53 assault weapons, 791 handguns, 527 rifles, 302 shotguns and one anti-tank rocket launcher.

FTFA: Since the inception of the program in 2009, there has been a 39 percent drop in gang crimes and 33 percent drop in shots fired calls, translating into 241 fewer people shot in the city, according to the mayor's office.

And did they sell the two pocket pistols worth $2000? Why mention the dollar value? If they sold them, that's not exactly getting them off the streets, now is it?

And I also wonder if they didn't just take that rocket launcher for a quick spin when the event was over. Just to try it out. Just once, before it was smelted into plowshares.

None of which has anything to do with fun buy back programs. Which do absolutely nothing to decrease crime.

I've got a beat up old no-name .22 that was left in a foreclosed house I bought. The cops ran the SN, came up with zip and told me to keep/dispose of it. I keep waiting for one of these buy backs to pop up, but I live in Texas and am SOL :-(.

Not to worry, cops need a source of drop guns, don't they? As well as some cops' private collections enriched at the rate of $100-$200 of taxpayer money for each item. It's just a perk of the job.

They probably didn't even know wtf it was until a week later.

I once had a statie tell me I "...could kill someone a mile away" with my shotgun when he tried to stop me from hunting quail in the foothills of San Bernardino mountains.

Sell it to a dealer or someone else you're sure isn't a felon or out-of-stater; in the current fervor, you ought to be able to beat $200, easy.

Yeah, it's not the first time either. I've seen a few of these articles over the years where some weirdo shows up with a rocket launcher or some other anti-armor weaponry.

I took it to a dealer and they weren't interested. It's was a complete piece of crap even when new and is worthless. The barrel is heavily rusted and I'd be afraid if it did manage to fire it would hurt the person shooting it.

How the heck do you safely dispose of old guns/ammo?

Toss it off a bridge. Pretend you just performed a service as a hitman for hire and you're ensuring the murder weapon will never be found.

I got rid of 100 really old shotgun shells (newest was prob 40yrs old) on there and put $30 in my pocket in the process. People on there will buy anything.

Them guys are morons. Gun buy-backs are a joke. I work selling firearms and nothing you took in, at least in the video you showed was worth more than $50 on the market. Or it was gutted of useful parts.
We did this in Rockford, IL 15 years ago. We gutted every known part from the firearms that made it a gun and they still bought them.

We spelled out "JOKE" with the vouchers.

Cali is the only state worse than Illinois in the laughing stock of this nation.

Most rocket launchers (like a RPG) are mostly just a pipe with a bit of mechanics to trigger the rocket.

If you don't have any rockets , which are much harder to get than the launchers, the the only way you could hurt someone with it is by taking it and hitting them on the head ....

The thing to do is go to one of these buy back drives , sit in the parking lot, and purchase all the good stuff before they take it into be destroyed. Put a sign on your car or something

That is dumb. AR-15's are worth minimum $500 on the secondary market. Sell it using an FFL to do the transfer(so there is a background check) and you will make a minimum of $200, and one of your fathers possessions won't be needlessly destroyed. Or are you afraid of it because it is an evil black rifle?

Most of the time the "anti tank rocket launchers" are just the tube from a M72 LAW, DRMO surplussed a bunch of em in the late 80/early 90s and you still see em pop up now and then, as they were one shot and non reloadable they are harmless collectors items, the only ones that are even remotely dangerous were a few training launchers with reloadable subcaliber rockets, since they were not considered destructive devices a small quantity of them were sold, however the subcaliber rockets had a spotting charge in the nose that could ruin your day if you were hit and so were quickly pulled from the authorized surplus lists , so they are rare as hens teeth now.

You know what gun buy-back programs do? They raise the price of the lowest value guns.

Even if you're selling your gun now because you need cash fast, you know the guy buying it can get at least $100 for it, so you'll make sure you get a cut of that.
