Dozens of handguns are out of homes and off the streets of New York City.

The NYPD says that 113 weapons were surrendered in a gun buy-back program in Brooklyn earlier Saturday.

People turned in more than 34 semi-automatic pistols, one with extra ammunition clips.

Most of the guns, 56 of them, were revolvers.

One easily-concealed weapon, a five-shot "Palm Gun" was also brought in along with a single M-1 assault rifle.

Those who surrendered a handgun or assault rifle got $200.
