Gary Beardsley is a gunsmith in Vermilion Bay. He runs Great Northern Gun Works, and he'd like to get some vintage firearms back into circulation.
"A lot of people have heirlooms, collectors items and firearms from the family they're no longer using," he said.
Beardsley would like to have the opportunity to buy them, fix them up and provide a good home for them.
"Those, very nice, appropriate longarms -- non-restricted firearms -- it's kind of heartbreaking to see those chopped up," Beardsley added.
However, he emphasizes there are some items he doesn't want in his shop, such as:
Unregistered, restricted firearms
Unregistered, prohibited firearms
Prohibited firearms devices and associated accessories
