Dimensio: While the owner may have been given far less compensation than the firearm was actually worth, is not the improved public safety resulting from the destruction of such a dangerous device not itself reward enough?


I'm not too sure of the crime statistics, but I'm pretty sure high-end, rare hunting shotguns aren't being used in many crimes in the United States.

Glocks, on the other hand...

Well, there's about an 11 out of 10 chance you're going to be home invaded, so it's important consider things like ammo that's less likely to give you hearing damage when you're Rambo-ing your house.

But, then you'll need a lot of it because said home invaders are likely to proceed even after having seen your AR-15 and taken several rounds of said squirrel plinkers. Also they're on PCP. The home invaders, not the squirrels. So, 50 round drum makes the most sense, when you think about it.

Plus, they all wear body armor. You may need hollow points. You can replace the walls. Safety is whats most important.

You'll need special teflon coated cop killer hollow point full metal jacket bullet casing shells loaded into a 30 round extended high capacity bullet clip magazine sheath holder that's clipped into a black military style automatic AK-47 assault semi-automatic glock M-16-60 rifle weapon with a barrel shroud. That'll get right through those bullet proof vests.

Here comes the helicopter -- second time today
Everybody scatters and hopes it goes away
How many kids they've murdered only God can say
If I had a rocket launcher...I'd make somebody pay

I don't believe in guarded borders and I don't believe in hate
I don't believe in generals or their stinking torture states
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
Bruce Cockburn

If I had a rocket launcher...I would retaliate

On the Rio Lacantun, one hundred thousand wait
To fall down from starvation -- or some less humane fate
Cry for guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher...I would not hesitate

I want to raise every voice -- at least I've got to try
Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes.
Situation desperate, echoes of the victims cry
If I had a rocket launcher...Some son of a biatch would die

And the .22 cal kills more people in the US than any other round.

/Of course, that's probably a function of popularity
//But then, it also means it works just fine



I didn't know this.  But I can definitely see that.

CSB: In my youth, a friend and I were out hunting squirrel in the national forest during the rut and for some dumb reason we only took our .22s (no deer rifle).  We're sitting up about 40 yards apart and across this gully comes this 8-point.  My friend who was using CCI Stingers takes aim and fires.  The deer goes down like a sack of bricks....not even a twitch.  We walk over and get to within about 30 yards and that thing jumps up and hauls ass.  We look around and there's a tiny little drop of blood and that's it.  My friend aimed for the head.  I think that hollow point hit the hard bone on the head and came apart but knocked the deer unconscious.

My only remark was, "well...this is why we don't shoot deer with .22s...and leave our deer rifles at camp."

Sadly, or thankfully, people around here seem to think that the buy backs are as idiotic as they sound & don't have them unless a local politician really needs some face time on the nooze.

I'm kind of sad. After our house was robbed last year my fiance and I picked up a pistol (Ruger SR9 if you're interested, great little gun, lots of extra safety features to help her feel comfortable), so for the long expanses of time when I'm not home my fiance has an extra line of defense after our big-arse ferocious greyhound (if you've ever had a grey you know how threatening they are, lol).

Picked up a 60 pack of generic cartridges, along with a 20 pack of home defense rounds. I wanted to pick up another 200 pack to help her learn to shoot better but last time i looked wally world had them at almost 70$ a pack. It hasn't come back down, when they have them.

BronyMedic: scubamage: FYI, any gauge shotgun with no choke will have even less penetration and a wider spread, needing even less aiming. Perfect for if you're in a "shiat, someone just broke in and it's 3:30am in the morning" moment. With no choke you only have an effective range of around 15m, and very little penetrating power through a wall

No choke, and rock salt rounds if you feel bad about killing someone. It won't kill them, but it'll make them wish they were dead.

I watched the video... I saw what amounts to dozens and dozens of grandpa's 'ol break over shotgun.  Single shot relics owned by people unsure of how to get rid of them until the police do a buy back program.

Yep, they got a whole lot of non-functioning .22 rifles from the 1930s off the streets.  And everybody who showed up looked as if they were bona fide outlaws who could go on a shooting spree at any moment - really desperados.

I love the anecdotal story a defense attorney told me a while back (it may not be true, but it's funny) - The guy who he was representing was brought in and charged for shooting another guy at a party during a fight.  It took the cops a while to figure it all out and brought the guy in after a month.  They had a picture of him with the gun in question from a cell phone recovered at his residence.  Witnesses say it was the revolver used in the crime and the cops wanted to know where it was.  The client told his lawyer (behind closed doors) that he had turned in during a gun buy back program a couple of weeks after the shooting.  The lawyer told him to shut up and never say that again to anyone.  After conferring with a captain at the police department about what happens to the guns he confirmed that the police had in fact destroyed the best evidence against his client.  I don't know what happened from there, but that was pretty funny - if it is in fact true.  Seeing as how the guns are involved in an anonymous buy back program, it's likely they can't really run balistics on them and go after the sellers.

I'm not too sure of the crime statistics, but I'm pretty sure high-end, rare hunting shotguns aren't being used in many crimes in the United States.

Homicides by shotgun, 2010: 373
Homicides by hitting people with hands, fists, feet, 2010: 745


That's it, i'm calling for the banning of hands, feet and fists! If it saves just one child, don't we have a moral resposibility to do something?

Adolf Oliver Nipples: You show me the gun show where they are selling live hand grenades on a handshake and I'll be glad to call the BATFE.


Back in the 80s I remember my neighbor's house being raided by the FBI. He was buying old pineapple and baseball grenades at the army surplus store, plugging them and re-arming them with new primers. He buried a bunch in their backyard before the raid so I was always just wincing every time the new neighbor tilled his garden in the backyard.

...I think his source for the primers was an undercover agent.

I think you need a conversion kit for that to work.

I don't think Feinstein understands enough about what she's trying to legislate to know what a conversion kit is.

My buddy owns a CheyTac 408 which he bought used for $3,500 or something crazy like that. He's endlessly amused that it's not on the "weapons Diane finds scary" list because it only takes a 5 round magazine.


She doesn't care if you kill 5 from a distance of 1.2miles.

I know that the thread has already reached derp level 9 but I'd like to point out that the AVERAGE PERSON can't tell the difference between a spent rocket tube and "AHHHHHHH!!!! A BAZOOKA!!!!" which is why there are laws against their sale in the first place. It's borderline useless as a weapon (they make an unwieldy club) but can easily be used to incite panic under the right circumstances.

The last picture I saw from a gun buyback was in NYC. Someone turned in a limited edition Browning Auto-5 12-ga shotgun (You can tell by silver plate and intricate markings on the receiver). I  own two, a regular and a gold edition Auto-5, and had it appraised at 2500 dollars three years ago.

Some idiot turned it in for a 100 dollar gift card when it's worth FAR more than mine.

/Auto-5 is a damn fine shotgun, BTW.

Nope. The public safety isn't improved even a little bit, just your illusion of it. Want proof? Go down to Wal-Mart and check out the wall of shotguns.


I suspect that you will next attempt to convince me that Mexican criminal cartels do not obtain hand grenades from smugglers who purchase them legally in the United States at gun shows without a background check.

tallguywithglasseson: UberDave: Heh. Because nothing says home defense like a box of cheap ass sub-sonic Remington squirrel plinkers!

Well, there's about an 11 out of 10 chance you're going to be home invaded, so it's important consider things like ammo that's less likely to give you hearing damage when you're Rambo-ing your house.

But, then you'll need a lot of it because said home invaders are likely to proceed even after having seen your AR-15 and taken several rounds of said squirrel plinkers. Also they're on PCP. The home invaders, not the squirrels. So, 50 round drum makes the most sense, when you think about it.


Plus, they all wear body armor. You may need hollow points. You can replace the walls. Safety is whats most important.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: With a real Russian-made Saiga AK-47 going for almost $2,000 thanks to the derp brigade stirring up "Look behind you! It's Obama with a ACLU-built, Soros-endorsed, Johnny-Depp-kissed gun magnet! Run! Run for your lives...to the gun store and stock up on these amazing bargains for a limited time only!" if these buyback programs really WERE getting AK after AK I think I'd set up a booth myself.


I went to Bass Pro this weekend because I wanted to pick up a Henry Golden Boy and there was a jackass at the counter screaming about not being able to get an XM-15 (I think) because they didn't have any in stock.  I don't think there's a gun store in the state of Virginia that has a semiautomatic rifle left, at least not ones that shoot NATO rounds.
