I'm sure it makes sense to exchange something of lesser value for something of greater value, but a 9mm Browning pistol for $100 gas card?
Tallies weren't immediately available, but the Gas For Guns event, sponsored by Jim Lind Service, ran out of cards within 40 minutes.And this Sinclair station owner wants to have another event in the fall.
Why can't any of us hold the same thing? You think a few of us Iowa bloggers could hold a "Cash for Calibers" event and I bet we'd come out ahead on the deal?
