Eligible law enforcement agencies may receive surplus federal firearms through the Federal Surplus Property Program (FSP) in conjunction with the United States General Services Administration (GSA).
The following operational guidance applies to the General Services Administration (GSA) and the MN State Agency for Surplus Property for the transfer of firearms under the Federal Donation Program.
The SASP shall prepare a separate “Transfer Order Surplus Personal Property” (SF-123) for each eligible Donee for which donation of firearm(s) is/are approved. The SF-123(s) with property executed “Firearm(s) Conditional Transfer Document(s)” attached will be forwarded to the above GSA address for processing.
Upon receipt of an approved SF-123 the GSA regional office, the SASP will notify the Donee and will ask the Donee whether it prefers shipment of the firearm(s) or direct pickup of the firearm(s) from the holding Federal agency. The Donee is responsible for all shipment and pickup costs.
At no time is the SASP authorized to take possession of or store any firearm(s) transferred under the Federal Donation Program.
The terms and conditions of the firearm(s) conditional transfer document specify the disposal actions required when the firearm(s) are no longer required by the Donee. The authorized methods of disposal are as follows:
Authorized methods of destruction are: (1) melting of the firearm(s); (2) cutting the firearm(s) in accordance with Department of Defense (DOD) DEMIL guidelines, or (3) shredding of the firearm(s).
