    It was interesting. Cool that he got it back after all that time. Feel bad for the kid though.

    Good thing it was stored "just as it should have been". Whatever that means.

    Pretty cool to get it back after all that time, Probably came down with the snow bird migration in the late 70s and 80s

    After 40 years, wow, that's really something. What are the odds of that ever happening? :bring:

    "Returned to its rightful owner." Not hardly, the insurance company is the rightful owner as they paid off on the claim.

    Great story-great points! We're all wide awake today. You know the press's gotta screw up the story. I wonder if he turned it over to his ins. co.

    That's the good thing about NCIC. Once entered-it's there...till it shows up. Sometimes the handling isn't done fairly, though. Once ins pays, the present owner should be able to keep the gun, if he bought it legally. The system's not perfect.

    If your car is stolen, and the insurance pays you for it, should you get to keep it if it's found?
