    Minneapolis gun buyback program fails. Hard.

    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/08/29...wners-say.html

    We already knew that these programs don't work, but this puts an awesomely fine point on the matter. A guy got a $100 gift card for this:

    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    I have called some buybacks and asked if they would give me $$$ for every pipe bomb I bring in ... LOL [all have said no which leads to further hilarious conversations]

    There is nothing inherently wrong with gun buybacks ... but PDs are not FFLs and BR chks (LOL) are not done on these organizations .... they likely would not pass either. And they rip people off..but these people likely know it 90% of the time.

    It is fired by sliding one pipe rearward inside of the other. I'll see if I can find a video.

    My guess is that one inserts a 16d nail in the diagonal hole in the stock......then whack the nail head with a rock.....and hope the nail does not puncture the primer.

    I believe you set the stock on fire and wait.

    It is called a slam fire shot gun there are a lot of videos on how to build them as WW pointed out.
