    At one time, maybe down south and if you can find the right buyer...but like Morelli said..the potential to find a buyer here in Canada has been greatly diminished. I know a few guys with collections that aren't worth 1/2 what they used to be, less for handguns.

    Not to mention NOT worth a penny on the illegal market for the Guns and Gangs guys...HaHa

    They are not worth a lot to collectors but there is a significant market for them to those who go into the bush a lot, guys in BC seem to really like them. Check out CGN, there are lots of antiques changing hands all the time, Mk I webleys can go for $2500-3000, the 455 Webley cartridge is a decent one as a defense gun in the back woods. You cannot have them in concealed carry but there are some leather holsters that can be worn on the hip with covers on them, ready to go.

    They are not gang bangers guns, I am saying that they are worth a lot and more to those who do not want to get a restricted, it is a shame that they have been given in to be destroyed.

    Someone is fabricating numbers...

    On May 10th....from the Star...

    Toronto Police Services announced on Friday that it had retrieved 1,235 firearms from its three-week gun buyback program launched on April 26.
    On May 17 (on week later) ...the CBC says :
    Toronto police say they have received more than 2,700 unwanted guns from city residents through a gun buyback program that wrapped up Friday.
    So we're are being lead to believe that in the final week of the program, all of a sudden they more than doubled the numbers donated during the previous 3 weeks ..BS

    Historically they've never collected more that 2000 guns...most years much less...so I think someone is fudging the numbers.

    Police offered similar compensation during a buyback program in 2008. That year they collected nearly 2,000 guns, 500 of which were handguns.

    They offered only $150 in a 2013 program and the number of guns they took in fell to 500. No money was offered in a 2015 buyback program, and police collected 150 guns.

    summed up nicely !!
    Is it really the best use of more than $500,000?

    No, for the most part it is a waste.

    That money could have paid for more officers, more resources to target the small group of people responsible for the gun violence in the first place.

    But that wouldn’t lead to a photo-op which is what this program is really all about.
