Part of me agrees with those who say that participating in buybacks only pads their numbers but if its 'for the children' I guess I can overlook it. I've often thought of buying a bunch of $80 Mosin Nagants and turning them in at a buyback for $100 and a quick $20/gun, but there are no buybacks in my area. Hell, the local teener baseball league has a gun raffle as a fundraiser. How cool is that. One of the local churches has a 'Day at the Range' as a ministry event. It fills up very quickly an if you don't get tickets at least a month ahead, you don't go. Big cities suck!!!
