    I work in the melt shop of a local steel mill and today i almost shed a tear. A few unmarked police vehicles came in and dumped a few hundred firearms into the furnace and i watched them melt away :bawling: there were a couple hundred rifles and shotguns and a few boxes of handguns.

    Bummer!

    I've always felt the biggest winner of gun melts are gun manufacturers, who are already making a killing. Makes me wish I had loaded up on gun mfg stocks before they went up.

    I was looking at a beautiful W. German Sig out in Sandy two weeks ago. They bought it from a police evidence sale. From their stories, they do this all the time and have even bought guns with blood and "other matter" still on them. The choice to melt them down is probably a departmetal decision although i suspect the good guns end up in the department somewhere.

    I wish it were that way. Too bad we run an electric arc furnace. No warm up time.
