not to mention those are thousands of pistols that otherwise could have been for sale here in america

instead of selling them for profit to us, the Euros have to crush them in order to get a HK or other company's contract

I literally saw a man get run over by a bus tonight, called 911 while jumping off and took his pulse, and that didn't bother me anywhere near as much as this. He was wasted and fell on his own.

...but that beautiful 1911 never did anything to anybody. :(

That's literally at least $2 million dollars that could have been made on the civilian market and sent to Africa, or put into research to cure cancer.

I know what you mean. My dad was showing his British co-worker his Raleigh circa 1982. He still rides it and it's bleached to peach from red due to the way my dad locked it up the same way every day for years while he let my mother use the car.

The co-worker rides about 12,000 'clicks' per year and was outraged that my father would give up on a bike like his Raleigh. :)

Yawn..

It's just metal and plastic. Think of it this way- if you have one- it's worth that much more now because there are less of them in existance.

The junkyard a friend operates got a call from the state about using their car crusher. I happened to be there that day picking up a car I had bought so I was still there when a group of State Reps, some senior State Highway Patrol brass, and a couple patrolmen all motorcaded into the junkyard along with a guy driving a mid-90's Chevy Corvette Convertible. Cherry car, red over red, side pipes, etc.

Seems the car had been seized in a raid on a chop shop and had been built entirely out of stolen parts from a variety of different other Corvettes. The state had used it as a drug interdiction car, as a pursuit trainer, and finally decided to get rid of it.

It was driven into the yard, the keys were tossed onto the seat, and then it got picked up with the loader. The battery and gas tank got ripped out, then it got pushed into the crusher. Wheels and all. The state guys watched as it got flattened, then they all shook hands, took their pictures, and went home.


Heck, check out the recent Car & Driver magazine where they detail the fate of the Mazdas that had been on M/V Cougar Ace when they had the ballast-transfer accident and rolled the ship over last year. Even the undamaged cars all went to the shredder. Thousands of them, brand new Mazdas with Zero miles on them.

It's all just metals and plastics, the cycle of life, it will be reborn as something else.

Military's destroy guns all the time. They buy more too. The pictures don't particularly shock me. They are just running them through a pug mill. That's how it's done.

Turn this around a little.... if all of those firearms were American (any manufacture) sporting type weapons, I think I would puke especially if it was in America.

Now is the time for the world to realize that there are no commie guns, no Yankee guns, no third world guns, but all guns created unique and special in the eyes of shooters everywhere. Each has a story to tell, and each deserves a dignified existence.

What I saw in those photos were guns, many still in their factory wrappers, that never got the chance to save a home invasion victim, never got to spend a cold day at the range, never realized their potential.

We should not stop fighting this madness until there is Universal Gunsmithing available for every firearms that needs it, and until every gun has a home, and every home has a gun.

Sad and terribly wastefull. Also missing a huge potential for profit selling them to USA or other countries that allow people to own handguns.

However, remember the Mobsters in that area of the world would easily bribe/hijack/steal/misdirect any shipment of said firearms and probably send them to God knows where. At least this made things harder for the Mafia. Sucks to be wastefull but thats probably what the Estonians were most worried about. They hate the freaking Mafia over there since they saw it really frak up Yugoslavia and Russia, and wisely don't want their country to get like that.

Also saw that Car and Driver article on the Mazdas. Most of them were badly water damaged and "stored" at a 45 degree angle while exposed to corrosive salt water for a month or so. No way to tell how safe (probably unsafe) they would be on the street long term so they really did have to scrap/recycle them. Sucked to do it but now I bet car transport ships are more carefull on safety and maintenance.

"Unique" and "special" in the "Special Olympics" sense, anyway.

What I saw in those photos were guns, many still in their factory wrappers, that never got the chance to save a home invasion victim, never got to spend a cold day at the range, never realized their potential.

Their potential was pretty much limited to waving in the air while shouting political slogans. And executing the occasional dissident, of course.

But I'd be careful expressing your views on my country, like "occasional dissident execution". Who do ya think we are? I was not happy over the gun destruction, as many others who actually have put their lives on the front, not polichickens who make decisions in the safety and comforts of their offices and have other people taking the heat.

It would take nearly a thousand handguns to equal one ton of scrap steel, which is worth about 200 bucks. Those same 1,000 surplus handguns could have been sold to a U.S. importer for $20 each. Let's do the math here, and we'll understand why countries like Estonia never achieve the prosperity of first rate nations.

As far as HK goes, well, I've always found them to cost twice what they're worth. I'll take a Colt or Smith any day over Kraut bullet throwers.

The reason why so much property is destroyed rather than sold as surplus is LIABILITY!

Lawyers and insurance companies run the world. Its much cheaper to destroy surplus, than to pay claims to folks looking to get rich thru some ambulance chaser.

I highly doubt HK was worried about the quality of those guns competing with theirs.

Yes it would be nice to have them available for purchase here, but until some of the import bans are lifted that ain't gonna happen and theres really no other place in the world they could go to be offered to the general public for purchase.

So what if anything else are they worth other than scrap?

not only are piles of weapons destroyed by our own .gov (M14s, m16s, etc). Surplus hummvees are cut in half and destroyed too. Because we're the .gov and were better than you.:rolleyes:

I would gladly take in a dog to foster than let them put the dog to sleep. I foster for a excellent rescue and I alert them to dogs that need saveing. I would rather buy a gun and take it out to the range than destroy them. :(

A good reason to hate H&K.

honeastly I wanted to buy and H&K pistol but there is now way in :cuss::cuss::cuss::cuss::banghead: I'm going to now and I can't believe that Because H&K "gave them a discount" they did it. You could sell all of those beautiful guns and use the cash to buy all of your new fancy pistols.
But what do you expect our government passed a 700,000,000,000 dollar bail out with that kind of money every man woman an child in America could get a little over 2,200 dollars and everybody who has a morgage under 75,000 dollars could get it paid off. I think its becoming more and more clear governments are selfish.:fire:

That is such a waste of good hardware. They could have easily been sold for much more than they are worth for scrap metal. I could see they didn't look very thrilled to be doing that though. The U.N. tries to get surplus small arms destroyed so they can better take over the world.

All those 1911s, I feel sick :(

But if you think this is bad, remember what happened to the Australians!

Destroying new firearms, so that new firearms could be purchased. :confused:

Sure, that makes perfect political sense.

Government elections = send in the Clowns :p
