Perfect invasion of your privacy. If your state didn't require handgun registration, you just gave the government all of the information they needed to put your name on their list.
Dumping it at a yard sale with a receipt/transfer hand-written on a cocktail napkin would have been better than opening yourself up to a microscopic examination by an anti-gun government. When the anti-gun congress and administration starts seizing guns, they'll come to the houses they already know about.
The idea that police will get guns off the street is noble. But the guns on the street used in the commission of a crime by criminals is not likely to turn up at a police swap meet.
And frankly, I, like most people, resent the use of tax-payer money to purchase firearms sold by law-abiding citizens that, if they really wanted to dispose of those firearms, ought to be selling the guns on their own. Instead, they'd rather save a few bucks on a classified ad and put the burden on the taxpayer.
I got a $100 walmart gift card for it! Used it to buy ammo for my Glock!

She got a guy with an arm load of pistols to interview.
It went something like ...
What are you going to do?
I'm turning in these 6 guns for cash.
What will you do with the cash?
Buy an AK47!

Yeah ... On one hand it's a great deal if you have a broken, worthless gun.
The downside is you know that some useless old hag is going to be holding it up in front of the cameras, showing how a deadly weapon was taken from the street and the buyback program saved a life.
That's about like saying if you turned in a spoon, that obesity would decline. But you know that's what they say.
I have a J22 from the 80's . Yes I can agree with the assesment
of the other posters on jennings reliability and accuracy.
I could not hit a beer can at 5 feet 3 out of 7. and 5 out of 7 would jam.I filed the extractor a bit and improved it some (but not much)
So you made out well.i wish they would have a program like that here.
I thought about using the jennings as a deep sea sinker for cod fishing in maine.
