I have called some buybacks and asked if they would give me $$$ for every pipe bomb I bring in ... LOL [all have said no which leads to further hilarious conversations]

There is nothing inherently wrong with gun buybacks ... but PDs are not FFLs and BR chks (LOL) are not done on these organizations .... they likely would not pass either. And they rip people off..but these people likely know it 90% of the time.

It is fired by sliding one pipe rearward inside of the other. I'll see if I can find a video.

My guess is that one inserts a 16d nail in the diagonal hole in the stock......then whack the nail head with a rock.....and hope the nail does not puncture the primer.
