WINNIPEG police say they continue to be overwhelmed by the public's response to the unusual gun amnesty program, Pixels for Pistols.
Halfway through the month-long campaign, police have recovered 655 firearms.
"Without a doubt, the program is a huge success," WPS spokesman Const. Jason Michalyshen said.
The number of firearms recovered has far exceeded the number collected during a 30-day amnesty in 2010, when Winnipeggers turned in 192 firearms.
However, this amnesty program has been sweetened by an offer from photo retailer Henry's, which is giving away a digital point-and-shoot camera for every working firearm turned in to police during November.
Michalyshen said police picked up 112 firearms on the second day of the campaign, the most recovered on a single day.
"We're right at the half-way point of the month and we're optimistic that this momentum will continue."
Anyone who wants to turn in a firearm or ammunition should contact Winnipeg police at 204-986-6222.
