How do you properly dispose of a damaged/non-functional gun?

Recommended Posts

I have inherited some guns and a few of them are either broken or have issues that make them dangerous to fire. How do you dispose of a broken gun? I don't want to just throw the thing away, it might be found and someone get injured.

For instance, I have a old "Saturday Night Special" type revolver in .22 Short that appears to be made of painted pot metal. The cylinder is misaligned and when fired sprays your hand with hot lead.

Hello my advice is many people will buy them as a parts only. Always need parts  myself.   2nd.  Your local sheriffs department will take them to get guns off street  check with them. First don’t show up with guns makes them nervous   3rd there is a web site for unwanted guns. they will send a box just look up unwanted guns hope this helps
