    Re: Rossi 38 Special in My Scoop .. Yikes!

    Wow, that is a special find. Best I ever did was a rusty old BB gun. Which I left where I found it. If you do get it back. It would look good restored.

    Re: Rossi 38 Special in My Scoop .. Yikes!

    I am curious which end of the LB harbor beach the gun was found at ( presuming you found it in Long Beach) or did the LB police ask you not to reveal the location ? If you care to say was it found over more towards the Queen Mary end or more towards Belmont shore? It has just really piqued my curiosity about that aspect of your find. I don't hunt Long Beach alot but on occasion I have parked near Bixby park right there at the coast and sometimes some of the crowd that hang around that area can make one real nervous. I hunted that beach one time not long after one of our heavy storms and it was mind blowing the piles of trash that tend to accumulate up on the beaches out of the harbor. Probably mostly from the Los Angeles river outflow. Pretty sad really. I wonder if the gun was tossed directly into the ocean or somehow was moved down to the beach area via the river channels. For those of you who don't know Long Beach very well there are some real nice areas and some very rough neighborhoods in some parts of that town. I would be willing to bet someone wanted to ditch the gun real fast. I am not and have never been a gun owner but I do think that if the original owner is not found and if the gun was not involved in a crime then the Long Beach cops ought to give it back to the finder especially since it does not look like it will really ever be functional again. It definitely is a conversation piece. At least there are a couple nice pics taken before it was handed over to the police. For future reference I am also curious how the LB cops treated you when you turned it in just in case I ever find anything so strange. Were they grateful or just annoyed ?

    Re: Rossi 38 Special in My Scoop .. Yikes!

    Hi Mike in OC ...Welcome to the forum.

    I am most sure it was not dropped where I found it. They are building up the beaches towards the San Gabriel River side and the sand comes from dredging close to the harbor at the L.A. River. Last year the city posted signs indicating their intentions of using that harbor dredged sand. The sand was deposited over the past couple of years in large mounds right at the Belmont Shore Beaches, I presume to dry out.

    When I called the regular police department number he directed me to call the dispatcher. The dispatcher sent someone over within about 20 minutes. I received a phone call from the dispatcher telling me the officer was outside and to come out WITHOUT the gun. Thinking about it I understood very well. Here they knew a firearm was in my house and they didn't know my exact state of mind. So when I came outside I gave him my most innocent smile and told him: "you guys are as afraid (respectful) of guns as I am"...He smiled back and said that they take firearms very seriously.

    It was a good experience no attitude from the officer. He gave me a report number and said I could inquire about details of the gun investigation. BUT whatever the outcome the gun would be destroyed. I pressed him a bit on the fact that I thought that I had a legal claim to it and he stopped listening and just repeated: It WILL be destroyed."

    Right now I have a phone# to the California Attorney General's Firearms section and I hope to learn the legalities of having the gun destroyed.

    Right now too .. I WANT THAT GUN MORE THAN EVER!

    And I must admit that I am a strong advocate of gun control (and not just in aiming ).

    HH Joe

    I can't imagine a police department giving a dangerous weapon to someone.

Having a carry permit would strengthen my claim if I had found it. Good luck and keep us informed. Monty
    Good info Monty. Rules like that are why I like Okiehoma.......I have a friend that lives in Rattan.

    You are a "strong advocate" of gun control and yet you want the gun back?
