I don't recall this video popping up here, so I linked to it.
It's a good show.
There are several things in it tied to current topics here.

I an making tall kills with my Ithaca waterfowler and Bismuth shot, as the migrants are coming down now. Makes me want an HE Fox.
And a case of TM.
Took a specklebelly Monday at around 60 right in my driveway. wink
Folded like a lawn chair.

I grew up knowing the family that ultimately sold it. It had been in their family for 3 generations. I had no idea of their having it until the story unfolded several years ago. Gil

Gil: That's very interesting.

Nash clearly lost it in a moment of distraction, so it's not like they stole it, but.....it was obviously his gun (his name's clearly printed on it) and they had to know that fact. Advertising for it's return (with a substantial reward promised) was extensive in that area (for months and even years), so there's no way they didn't know that they had his custom-built and so-identified property (and for 3 generations?). I not sure that's shining tribute to this family's reputation for honesty. You could argue that they were poor and he was "rich" by the standards of the day, but that still doesn't make it "right" to keep a man's personal property, ill-gotten or otherwise. As a gun-owner, that rankles me.

His estate & heirs (if any still exists) certainly would have had a claim on it. I'm also assuming that he made an insurance claim on it's loss, so... that should mean that the insurance company and/or it's successors had a claim on it as well. How all that got resolved before the sale would make for a very interesting story.

Dudes, that horse done left the barn long ago.

Look what they are doing with/to it.
and it's diet.

Geese running hard today.
Quite distracting as I am changing a transmission so I can go sharpie killing.

I might try a little video because Stan and George and Gil would like it.
I'd have to put down my sweet tea to take the shot~! smile

Given the curse Old Mr. Buck put on the gun if it were not returned, I believe I'd have to put a safety on Bo Whoop before I'd want to shoot it myself...Geo

"Well, I lost the big gun yesterday—terrible blow . . . If an honest person found it, I’ll get it back. If NOT (emphasis his), I hope he gets shot by the missing safety."

Gil:

Thank you very much for that. The sale of Bo Whoop was discussed at length in our shop on multiple occasions before and during the sale, but no mention was ever made of that article. Net-net, it's where it needs to be now, but talk about unjust enrichment...
