Pistol Found -owner found
« on: September 24, 2021, 05:49:35 PM »
My son was off the beaten path and found a fairly nice pistol and case in the road. Obviously fell out/off a vehicle. Give a location and description - we will get it back to you.

I would suggest turning it over to the local Leo in the area it was found...SN #  could I'd owner..could be stolen..used in crime...etc .. I wouldn't shop it around on the net...good intentions, but could lead to bad results.

My son is still in the woods - Have contacted 2.
Sort of.. I have one here on the line.
We are trying to get the local guy to answer his phone. Tracker can see where he is but he isnít picking up.
We havenít given up.

On going saga - turns out the local guy had no reception.
Called all of us back - (we beat up his phone pretty good) too bad cuz he wasnít far from him at the time.
Now calling another Deputy.
In the interim my son will have several ride-alongs scheduled for his troubles.

Situation concluded.
Deputy contacted (finally) & meetup arranged.
On the way to the meet the deputy he was stopped by some frantic folks who lost a gun.
(described the gun to a ĎTí along with the case having a broken latch)
My son told them it had been called in and the Deputy would have to be consulted.
Owners were pleased it had been called in. Were worried it would show up in a pawn shop & dreaded the search. 
Deputy confirmed owners and everyone is happy & on their way home.

It was a ladyís first trip to shoot her new gun - hadnít been shot yet.
One of the guys had set it on the bumper - the group got distracted in a conversation & drove off.
Didnít realize the mistake until quite a while / distance later and was stopping & asking everyone they saw.
She was giddy and very relieved things turned out well. As we all are.
