Prattville police will sell confiscated guns to raise money so they can buy uniforms and equipment.

   Police Capt. Diane Hamm said the weapons will be sold to a law enforcement supply company in Montgomery. The weapons have been turned in or seized by police since 1994.

   Hamm told The Montgomery Advertiser (http://on.mgmadv.com/1aQ1eDw ) that the cheaper guns will be cut up and sold for scrap metal. The remaining weapons are worth about $25,000. They include a World War I-era British rifle, a World War II-era German pistol and modern handguns.
