Starting with a BANG.

Had the day off so I went to a local Park to get some exercise. I don't skip large signals next to trees so I dug this one. A 22 caliber revolver with serial number across the but. Police Captain was happy to recover it and thanked me. He said it wasn't in the ground too long as he was able to rotate the cylinder with distinctive clicks. Although it looks abandoned I am still glad to get it off the streets.



White's V3i w/12x10 SEF coil & Sun Ray Invader DX-1 Probe, White's Prizm 6T w/Sun Ray Invader PZ-1 Probe, Garrett Ace 250 w/Sun Ray Invader YF-1 Probe, Fisher 1280X for in the water, Fisher 1225X as my seeded hunt machine.

Purchased my first detector in the spring of 1972, slowing down but still having fun.

Way cool find!

If no one claims it do you get it back?

Probably not as it is likely a criminals gun, as they toss them

Captain said it was probably stolen and will go back to the original owner after he checks the serial number.

Haven't seen one of those since my gunsmith days. It is missing some parts: front sight and cylinder pin for sure and probably broke off. RG pistols were junk when new and a favorite of city gangs due to price.



"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." and "Keep digging till you drop!"

Detectors.... V3i 6-2013, DFX 12-2005, Spectrum XLT (2015-for loaner) and Spectrum Eagle 6-1992 (retired).
