    How do you dispose of a handgun frame? It's beyond repair. I know it doesn't go into the weekly trash, so where? I live in Washington county.

    Call a local gunsmith and ask. My guess is that most gunsmiths have had guns brought in for repair and found them non-repairable.

    or call a cop-shop and ask. i think you need to cut it and then throw it in the scrap metal bin.

    Wipe off the prints and throw it in the river. That's how they do it in the movies!

    That's exactly what I'd do!
    And that way, you will always know where it is!

    you know there is no such thing as a gun "buy-back" since they never owned them in the first place (unless you turn in a milsup or police surplus arm)!
