    This Benjamin .22 pump air rifle was in like new condition

    The gun turn in event at Phoenix the last two weekends also collected air guns. No gift cards were given for them, but a few came in anyway.

    The lucky private buyer paid $45 for the Benjamin pictured above, including a tin of 250 pellets.

    This table of air rifles and handguns was turned in on 11 May.

    Most of them are relatively inexpensive, but you can see what appears to be a decent quality break open air rifle with scope under the imitation model 94 Winchester. The imitation was good enough on the 94 that I did not notice the difference until I was within a couple of feet.

    The gift cards obviously made a difference, as only a handful of airguns was turned in compared to nearly a thousand firearms.

    In fairness, a great many of the firearms turned in were worth less than the $100 gift cards. I was told a number of times, that the person turning in the firearm "had much better ones" at home.

    Yeah, I also talked to number of people who were clearly shooting enthusiasts who were turning in junk worth less than the gift cards.
