Well I thought last weeks would have been the last dive of the season seeing as how there was a hurricane bearing down on us, but the hurricane swerved and the river is lower and clearer than ever! I went back to the spot where I found the gold ring last week and spent some time. First thing I found was a .22 revolver! the first gun I've ever found!

Nice .22 revolver, probably lost by someone involved in the squirrel hunting trade. Collect enough squirrel pelts and one can sew up a pair of coveted squirrel skin boots - just be sure to pick all the fleas off before putting them on. 😁

Huh never thought of trappers! I figured it was someone kayaking while packing heat. Remember gun owners! Always test your holster for retention during an Eskimo roll before taking it down the river!

Thanks! seems like pretty cheap construction. I've always wanted a .22 revolver that can handle everything from shorts to magnums, I think I'll go with Ruger when I finally pull the trigger.
