PoliceTrades.com Helps Agencies Find Addi5onal Revenue Sources By Ac5on Target
The Global Leader in Shoo0ng Range Development™
With the downturn in the economy and shrinking tax dollars, law enforcement agencies are searching for new sources of funding for needed equipment. PoliceTrades.com is helping law enforcement agencies ﬁnd addi5onal revenue through the trade of department ﬁrearms. Whether it be duty ﬁrearms, conﬁscated guns, or restricted Class 3 weapons, PoliceTrades.com is turning obsolete ﬁrearms into new equipment.
The PoliceTrades.com trade program is simple and completely free for law enforcement agencies. A list of ﬁrearms the agency is looking to eliminate is obtained and sent to the PoliceTrades.com bid network of Federal Firearms Licensed dealers (FFLs) for pricing. By using mul5ple vendors, PoliceTrades.com can obtain the highest trade value for the ﬁrearms.
Once the bid is accepted, the agency ships the ﬁrearms directly to the FFL for resale. Payments are then made to the agency or to any vendor of the agency’s choice like Ac5on Target. By paying a vendor directly, PoliceTrades.com ensures the money obtained through the traded ﬁrearms is used for the equipment needed by the agency.
For example, your police department could be in need of ouNiOng its outdoor shoo5ng range with addi5onal targets or equipment, but not have the funds to do it. Instead of trying to raise the money or ﬁgh5ng with local government to increase funding, you can turn obsolete ﬁrearms into credit with Ac5on Target or any other vendor you choose.
Many agencies are burdened with large inventories of conﬁscated and surrendered ﬁrearms. Evidence rooms ﬁll up and agencies need a solu5on to eliminate this excess inventory. PoliceTrades.com oﬀers several solu5ons to deal with conﬁscated ﬁrearms.
Class 3 ﬁrearms (select-‐ﬁre and short barrel riﬂes and shotguns) are another area where PoliceTrades.com can help you obtain revenue. Some agencies are under the impression that these guns can only be transferred to another agency. Through their Class 3 FFL dealers, PoliceTrade.com can purchase transferable Class 3 ﬁrearms for resale value and non-‐ transferable ﬁrearms for parts value and destruc5on. PoliceTrades.com will handle all of the ATF Form 5 transfer paperwork.
PoliceTrades.com is the industry leader in the ﬁrearms trade business and can help your agency ﬁnd untapped revenue sources.
