I'm guessing it was a .32 acp = mousegun.
I would pay money to see someone fire a 32 millimeter handgun - as long as it's not someone I know and love. lol
I saw that on the front page of the Times Union. I wonder how many criminals turned in their guns?
Years ago I was at a "gun surrender" in Newark NJ. People were bringing in all sorts of guns for $50 AmEx gift cards. They took in around 200 guns during the weekend.
From what I saw most were junk, and most were turned in by women and minors. I do remember some moron turned in a perfect looking Glock 19, and another turned in a Sig 225 that looked pretty nice........ the rest were just crap guns from what I could tell. Old revolvers and shotguns mostly......
Several "no name" looking polymer autos, must have been 50 of those things in a pile and not ONE of them looked to be worth a darn...
gun turn-in's make me LOLOL. Just rediculous.

Gun turn in's are nothing more than a "feel good-do nothing" exercise for the sheep.
