STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford Police collected 13 firearms during the department's first gun buyback program in 11 years, Capt. Tom Wuenneman said.

Saturday’s event brought in 11 handguns and two shotguns, he said.

There will be another event on Dec. 15 at the First Congregational Church, 1 Walton Place, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. In exchange for working firearms people will receive gift cards.

Here are the rules for the buyback:
▪ All firearms must be unloaded.
▪ Weapons should be transported in a vehicle’s trunk.
▪ If carrying by hand, the firearm needs to be in a bag or box.
▪ Ammunition should be transported separately from the gun.
▪ Stamford residents and non-residents can participate, but businesses don’t qualify.
▪ Firearms considered junk will not be accepted.
