Arizona - -(Ammoland.com)- Meade County, South Dakota will be having a surplus property auction on May 13, 2014.
While the county sheriff initially opposed auctioning off the guns (he preferred to trade them to a dealer), more fiscally responsible heads prevailed.
The firearms are considerately above the average seen in these type of sales, perhaps because these guns were confiscated in rural South Dakota instead of inner city of Chicago.
Or perhaps the guns in the inner city might go through a different “selection” process before making it to a gun sale. From the Rapid City Journal, we have a list of the guns to be sold. Most of them can be seen in the picture above.
I have added line feeds to make the list more easily readable.

It is worth noting that there was no discussion of the possibility of destroying these valuable assets, essentially offering them as a sacrifice to the gods of political correctness; or perhaps more accurately, as political theater designed to send the message that guns are bad and should be destroyed.
While guns at police auctions typically bring between $100 to $200 each, I predict that these guns will average between $250 and $350.
Auction winners who do not have a concealed carry permit will have to undergo a background check before taking possession of the firearm purchased.
