    Thanks Blaze...found that gun in my first week of detecting...might have passed it up now, because at the time I hadn't learned how to determine iron from other metals and just dug up whatever made the most noise! proved to be a valuable find as I kept going back to that area and having success.

    Smokin' finds.

    Question: How does somebody "lose" a gun? It would seem even more far-fetched back in those days when a gun was a basic necessity...?
    Is it okay to shout "movie" in a crowded firehouse?
