$150 for an “assault-style” weapon? Try $1500 minimum at any gun show for an AR. Wish I lived nearby.
Just wait outside these “turn-in” points, and offer the person bringing in the firearm twice what the official “gun buy” people are willing to pay, and you will have your pick of a pretty good array of weaponry.
Of course, this may turn out to be a risky business model, as a lot of the sidearms being turned are in poor condition or even unusable, except as salvage. Also, the authorities would be sharply scrutinizing anybody attempting to do such a “pre-buy”.
OK, firearms instructors (there are well over 60,000 of you registered with the NRA) - back away from the keyboard. Enough with the talk:
The NRA website sells the rifle and shotgun student course books for $7. The recently revised and superbly illustrated pistol book is only $11. Go down there and offer courses. Show ‘em what you got - teach on the street with a couple of your buddys. Evangelize.
Are you an NRA recruiter? If not, why not? (For the bottom feeders: you sell memberships for $35 and get to keep $10.)
