. . . to find fault with this. http://www.king5.com/news/investiga...riffs-departments-selling-guns-189740571.html And for the record, Adam Klein is no fan of cops, contrary to what he says publicly. This "news media" outfit would probably flip to find out agencies routinely exchange old guns for new. They'd flip even more if they knew a gun shop existed on the Seattle PD range (my range and a great shop for members and cops!). Because of nonsense like this, my agency destroyed over $20k worth of seized firearms because the city had a law in place prohibiting it. For those from the Seattle area, a batch of Jim Cloward custom builds (preeminent custom gunsmith in the area). That $20k would have outfitted every officer with their own issued rifle, replacement Glocks with spares and a heap of training ammunition and Simunition rounds. The fools fail to realize that there is a clear chain here: guns get traded to a FFL, who then sells them to someone who has passed the FBI NICS check. GW is one of three LE wholesalers for Glocks in the state and one of the biggest distributors. Hell, even the feds buy from them!
