WTF. Big Daddy Guns is the storefront of Big Daddy Unlimited in Gainesville.

Wonder what Garand Thumb thinks about this.

I love the irony of this news compared to their "history" of getting started in response to threats of gun confiscations after Sandy Hook (see below).

Or he can turn in a machine gun and nothing will happen. Wonder if the BATFE has signed off on this?

Would they destroy a machine gun, it is almost certain evidence of a federal crime and to do so one would think would be a federal crime?

They are obviously opportunists and grifters.

They saw fear and capitalized on it. They are not 2A supporters.

Just like these people were not people of God

I wonder if Hank Strange is still involved with them. He seemed like a cool dude. I got to chat with him briefly at an event once and was ok. His buddy Walter was kind of out there- but in a good way.

Remnant Fellowship "church" leader.  They are the ones that crashed that Citation into the lake near Nashville.
BTW I am beginning to think the actual church people were not onboard it and faked their deaths to avoid prosecution OR it was suicide for the same reason.

Slimy fucks.

Not to derail, but it is a story so big HBO did a documentary that is actually decent ad even if half the stuff is made up, oooof.

This is disappointing but they also enjoy selling them some Black Rifle Coffee Company merchandise;   so I guess I should not be surprised.

I friend recently purchased a pricy weapon from them and made a comment to them about the BRCC crap.   When he sees this buyback stuff, he will be utterly remorseful.  

I see they do have some bold 2A statements on their website.

Turn in stolen guns, write off gift card costs on taxes as ''charity work,'' sell the shitty ones at cost, make a bunch selling the one's that people don't think are worth much. $50 for gramps old .45 which turns out to be an original condition US&S worth 6 grand.

Why the hell would they give $200 for a semi-auto pistol, and $300 for rifles and shotguns?  

Rifles and shotguns kill a hell of a lot less people a year than pistols, so shouldn't the prices be the other way?

Does Florida have a law requiring a FFL to be the one that actually conducts the “buy back”?  Legit question. We have such a law here in Missouri. Makes a hurdle to jump through for liberal municipalities and non profits that would use tax payer money / government grants to hold these events. As such you rarely hear of them here.

Gainesville is ultra woke, so not surprised to have this happening, but it seems strange to have a FFL dealer who sells on the web and has multiple brick and mortar shops participating.

It seems they have a FB page!

Yep, at least in so far as getting rid of a murder weapon. Now people who walked between velvet ropes in the Capitol, on the other hand, they get renditioned to Guantanamo.

Police contracts don't go thru shitty local firearms dealers. You guys also WAYYY overestimate the quality of guns turned in.  No murderer is going to turn in with a murder weapon.  They either dump it of sell it to some other guy on a street corner.


Gun buybacks are good ways to get rid of your broken shit and get money to buy better stuff.  I have a Lorcin .25 and a Stevens .22 I needed the stock from that are just waiting for the next one.
