You thinking bout dumping a hot used gun?
Best to take said firearm to your local blacksmith if that is the case.
Truly i dunno what they do but, i imagine they should, however even if they did test, they destroy the evidence before getting results anyway.
Now on the other hand, if you had a gun stolen, write it off.
I was at a gun show 3 months later and was looking at a venders booth looking at his guns he was selling and noticed a 7.62x51 L96a1 that looked exactly like my rifle that was stolen by the police department. After a closer look I inspected the ghillie sock ( I make my own ghillie suits, drag bags and gun socks) and the gun I realized it was my friggin gun!!!!!!! I had it engaved with her name on it "caroline" . I name all my rifles because it is an old tradition.
well, i don't know about apples, but it would seem that folks who have lost their firearms, or had them stolen, could forward the make, model and serial # to the BATFE.
Most of the guns collected would be destroyed, though some were being tagged for use in police training, said Austin police Lt. Ely Reyes , who helped coordinate the event.
Officials said they would check to see whether any of the guns had been reported as stolen and return such weapons to their owners.
Stupidity is rife in our law enforcement community!
Gloria Jones was among those who brought a gun to exchange for a gift card at the "no questions asked" event. She exchanged her husband's .22-caliber handgun because he died in June and she didn't have any use for it, she said.
