Sooner than dispose of it why did they not ask if private person was interested in preserving or renovating it :g43: Or start a fund raiser and have it installed in a public park with a plaque :g43:

I doubt there was much chance of this shotgun firing after 'quite' awhile in the water the shell would be well soaked and the firing pin would be rusted solid, but with all weapons they should not be pointed towards other people loaded or unloaded :g45: And no doubt a liberal soaking with WD40 and i...
