Ok ... sitting at home last night watching the local news and a story came on about sentencing for crimes committed with a gun. They show a picture (see attached) of a bunch of handguns laid out on a table. I see something that screams RICHARD ... I had to rewind the news feed to see what that was and low and behold right there in the middle was a Ruger P-something. Not sure the model. Sad thing is it will probably be melted down ... sad sad sad ... :(:(:(

The P Series are like TANKS!!! Hate the idea of melt down but you are probably sadly correct. I would like to hear/read more from our law enforcement members/officers about this topic.

This story was from Cleveland, Ohio and they had a buy back and they made a big deal about melting the guns down at one of the steel mills. When that event happened, someone turned in a rifle worth something like $3000. The thought was someone should be allowed to buy it but nope.

When we had a similar event, an enterprising lawyer (he must be a FFL but I forgot if the news report mentioned it) advertised across the street from the local police station, offering better $ than the buy back program.
The police said what he's doing was perfectly legal so they left him alone.

Ya I have heard of a few guns finding new homes instead of getting melted down. If the guns have to be destroyed I would rather they get stripped down and sold as parts kits minus the frame rather than the whole gun go, now dont get me wrong I dont want to see any of them destroyed but I guess it is a little less evil to save some parts.

You don't need to have or use an FFL to do a private sale in Ohio between Ohio residents neither of whom have any reason to believe the other party is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Depends on where and the department but sometimes officers can buy them or if real nice they may be kept as "reference" samples if there is a lab associated with the agency that does ballistics.
