    START: 13th of April, 2019
    END: 14th of April, 2019

    Through the Anonymous Gun Buyback Program, the City of Los Santos offers money to anyone who surrenders a gun. This program is part of an ongoing effort to encourage individuals who own illegal or unlicensed guns to turn them in anonymously. You do not have to identify yourself and you will not be asked any questions.

    The Los Santos Police Department will offer the following: 

• $3,000 per handgun with at least 25 bullets.
• $5,000 per heavy weapon.

We believe that the above will help law-abiding citizens keep order on the streets, and help all citizens achieve the common aim of making San Andreas a safer place! We cannot stress it enough that this is an anonymous program, and you will not be asked for your ID. You will be awarded via cash payment on the day to assure your anonymity. 

In order to participate in the program, head down to the Los Santos Police Department's Mission Row Precinct and speak with an officer present. We ask that you do not brandish any firearms on the way to the precinct and that you keep them concealed in a bag or on your person. Make sure that you make contact with an officer and informing them of your program participation interest prior to withdrawing any firearms.


Together, we will make the State of San Andreas safe again.

The buyback prices might need to be raised in order to make this program more popular. The guns people would be turning in would easily sell for at least double those prices on the streets. If you offer people more money for their weapons then they'll be more likely to end up somewhere safe instead of in the hands of another criminal.

Thank you for the comments, this program is not designed for weapons importers to generate income, this is designed to increase safety within our city as well as allow civilians a method to turn in weapons that are not legally registered without the risk of jailtime or heft fines. I would recommend that people take advantage of this program as it is a limited offer.

Thank you

Captain Bacon.

I'm not proposing it's used as a way for weapon importers to make money, but there's a lot of civilians who had legally owned firearms that were completely blindsided by this new law, and now if they want to follow the law they have to turn in their weapons to the police for half the price they paid for them, if not less? People are going to feel like they're being screwed, and I wouldn't be surprised if this turns some towards crime and causes these guns to end up on the streets.

This is an unfortunate way to look at things, I would recommend that if a civilian has an illegal firearm or an unlicensed one gets in contact with the weapons licensing division and speaks to their command team, and perhaps after successful application will again be permitted to carry their Personal Firearm. Understand that Illegal firearms, anything over the size of a handgun will remain illegal in our state. I wish everyone a good day, and best of luck on their weapons applications.

But until that application goes through that civilian is in possession of an illegal firearm, and can be charged and imprisoned. We all know how long the government can take to get things done around here, crime doesn't wait for you to get your weapons license, there's a lot of people who won't be able to legally defend themselves. And what about people who have a previous criminal record but have turned a new leaf and are now hard working, law abiding citizens? Are they no longer allowed to legally defend themselves?

(( Due to players trying to take advantage of this RP program we no longer accept empty handguns (min 25 bullets) or weapons modifications. This is meant to be a RP program, not to act as if PD's your buyer for 2 weeks. ))

(( Due to reduced gun prices, we no longer can host this RP event as this was never meant to be a program where you profit of the LSPD. ))
