Gun Buyback Drive-Thru

The Columbus Office of Violence Prevention, in partnership with the Columbus Division of Police, will host a gun buyback drive-thru event on Saturday, September 30, from 10AM-1PM in the parking lot at Trinity Baptist Church (461 St. Clair Ave).

Gift cards of up to $750.00 will be given in exchange for handguns, assault rifles, non-assault rifles and shotguns based on the type and condition of each firearm. All other firearms, including replica, antique, and non-working guns, will also be accepted and eligible for ONE $25 gift card regardless of the number or condition of the firearms turned in.


Participants are also expected to observe the following precautions:

  • Drivers should arrive with the gun(s) placed in the trunk of the vehicle and follow all local laws during transport.
  • Guns must be unloaded and preferably placed in a bag or a box.
  • Ammunition should be separated from the gun.
