In Oklahoma, pawn shops now allow you to pawn your bullets. And it pays pretty good, too, from what I saw on the news.
The pawnshop owner they showed was putting bullets in baggies and it reminded me of the infamous nickel bags...
He claimed he didn't even know what all bullets he had anymore, but felt that with the bullet shortage here in OK, he'd cash in by selling bullets.
It bothers me that the reporter didn't ask any important questions, like, are these bullets reloads? Were they stored so the bullets remained unaffected by temperature extremes?
Obviously he's not taking bullets in their original bricks. I question the safety of the bullets he's taking in and selling.
He doesn't appear to know much about ammunition beyond that it could be a money-maker for him. He storing bullets in baggies and plastic containers with lids. They showed him taking some .22s out of their brick and shaking them into a plastic container.
I will never buy bullets from him.
Not that I'm likely to be buying bullets to begin with, but if I wanted to buy some as a gift for my children or friends who have assorted guns, it would not be from him.
