    People who have guns they do not want anymore will be allowed to drop them off at two locations, A Father's Place on Highway 378 in Conway, and at Friendship Missionary Baptist Church behind the gymnasium.

    The program will operate from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, so you will want to get there early enough to pick out a good spot.

    Many broken and junk firearms are turned in at these events, but a fair number of people who inherited decent guns, but do not want to have anything to do with them, show up. There are often some pretty good deals.

    Across the country, freedom fighters are showing up at these events, and offering cash for the better specimens. This should be welcomed by event organizers, if their purpose is to "get guns off the streets". This is because such activity stretches the turn in dollars, prevents poor widows from being defrauded of their valuable property for a pittance, and places guns that are not wanted in responsible hands.

    Private sales are legal in South Carolina, as they are in most states.

    Local information would be appreciated, as these events are often held in poor neighborhoods.

    Here are numerous links showing private individuals purchasing guns at numerous events across the country:

    Information from anyone who sees the actual event would be appreciated

    I would love to get citizen reports of the event. Pictures would be greatly appreciated. I would be happy to write up an article about it and to give credit if it is desired.
