    •  thank you; the other pics help (3+ / 0-)

      the reporter says a Nitro Express elephant gun was turned in along with 5 full auto weapons.  The pics show a lot of Saturday Night specials, semi auto and revolver and a few larger caliber sidewheelers.
      There are seven what appears to be "assault type" guns, such as apparent Mac 9s or 10s.  There appear to be all sort of single shot rifles and shotguns though I think I spotted a couple of auto shotguns and one double barrel.
      Someone with better eyesight and more experience with firearms needs to review the pics to determine how many are modern firearms and how many are antiques or nonfunctioning as the payoff for the firearms was less than you could get at a pawnshop;

      Gun owners received $25 for BB guns, $50 inoperable firearms, $150 for revolvers, semi automatics, shotguns and rifles and $250 for assault weapons.
       If anyone is interested I think I can find a recent auction with the realized or hammer price of similar weapons to compare the difference
