saw the new 30-06 in my older brother's closet, hmmm.. Kablooey... through two double walls, across the path that my folks came up not ten minutes later... No blowout, missed any nails, wiring, so I was able to cover it over.. What noise? Lesson learned, could have been disastrous..

So he stored it irresponsibly and you found out what happens when the most basic safety lessons (The Four Rules) have yet to be learned. And that failure on your and your brother's parts means that I don't deserve to own something similar and store it safely and responsibly and teach my theoretical (or not so theoretical, who knows) kids about The Four Rules and what to do when, etc.? Says you.

But I've 4 or 5 oldies 'd turn over, as it is the Baretta I engraved my CDL into it years ago, so I'll just chop it up... Slow speed carbide Porter Cable chop saw will slice em all up, toss 'em in the blue recycle bin... One really old Winchester pump is badly worn, pull the stock off, chop it up, no need for any of 'em...

So why don't you? Your discarding of the hobby and willingness to destroy a well-crafted functional American product does not mean you get to forcibly extend that action upon other law-abiding citizens who would otherwise choose not to.
