This Couple Accidentally Bought A Rifle At Goodwill For $10

Published

Like it or not, they got a better deal than you’ll probably ever get.

A Facebook post on Sunday gives some details into what actually happened when the couple purchased what they thought was a new-in-box Baby Bouncer by Baby Einstein.

While they say the box looked to be new and unopened, they found out that was not the case when the party receiving the gift had opened it.

💰When you go to the Goodwill for a baby shower gift thinking you got a good deal on a bouncer ($10) not even opened and you end up opening a 🔫MOSSBERG 715T Semi-Auto Rifle 😱😱

FYI: This was Valparaiso Goodwill, Serial number was clean & Crestview Police said do what you want with it🏆 The gun now belongs to Baby Jonathan who is due to enter this world any day now 😂 #wegiftedhimhisfirstgun

Update: Just added video proof that gun does in fact fit in the baby bouncer box 📦 Crestview Police have the gun for 90 days.

While some people are calling this a hoax, I can see it happening. If an item comes in for donation, boxed and looking unopened, I’m sure there are many employees who would simply put it out on the floor to sell.

Also, take into account that they have photographic evidence of an officer with the firearm, and them taking it and holding it for 90 days before releasing it back to the family.

Hoax or not, this is one purchase that I hope to make one day.

Oh, and the comments.
