So yeah its a BB gun and the cops are letting me hold onto it but man you never know what you are going to get.....Started the morning wanting to park hunt in another town close by to save on the gasoline woes and was doing pretty good finding small kids jewelry items (what I was going for was gold smalls). After I got a cool silver snake charm my machine alarmed out on a huge target and I brushed an inch of dirt away revealing the pistol. Called the cops and since the numbers on it are clean and nobody has reported a crime dispatched officer said I get to hold onto it with provision they can take it back if anyone reports it stolen. I hope they don't call it is a pretty cool wall hanger. Calculator works. Also found a modernish axe head in the field next to the tot-lot. Strange day of finds but I'll take 'em!

I had that same BB gun when I was a kid and that was 40 years ago it surprises me they still make it.
i think its old how it made it there ihni, figured it was 'vintage' to the eighties so on the wall it goes, remember finding a daisy air pellet gun in a lake as a kid and losing it later so kinda makes up for it. Thanks for lookin'

Well done on gun, a surprise target for sure.
Lots of targets from the tot-lot park.
Those gangsters are getting younger and younger.
Strong arming the ice cream man out of all the pixie stix, its a shame
