    Keep track of your guns...

    I took a trip to the range tonight and as I was cleaning up brass around my stall I noticed a little black box in the stall next to me. I thought "could it be?" I look around and don't see anyone (it was closing time) and think to myself "the last shooter in this stall left over 30 minutes ago". I grab the box and pop her open... lo and behold a Magnun Research Baby Eagle and magazine. I thought woohoo! free gun...

    Unfortunately, my pesky conscience forced me to hand it over to the range officer. But not without leaving my name and phone number in case no one claims it. :-)

    So remember folks, keep track of your firearms. The next guy who finds them may not be as nice as me.

    I'd have told the Range Officer that I had found an item, given them my name and phone number and advised them to have anyone who reported anything missing to call me. Once they identified the gun, I'd give it back to them, otherwise, "WOOHOO"!

    Wow, where is your mind if you actually leave a weapon at the range??

    I think I left my Baby Eagle at the range in Fla the other day. Can you ship it up here?

    I had a sudden memory lapse yesterday - happens a lot to an old gent they tell me. Now if you can kindly tell me the name of the range where I left my Baby Eagle in the stall yesterday I'll just come on back and pick it up

    I had a feeling there would be a few people who lost their Baby Eagle at the range yesterday, which is why I didn't post which range I went to.

    The RO said he was pretty sure he knew who it belonged to. So we'll just wait and see.

    A big lapse, but I guess that's better than leaving it in the men's room. I have a cousin who left his revolver in the men's room. It didn't go well after, especially with my uncle.

    Some lady left her brand new (I think I remember it being a gift from hubby/bf or something) .357 mag out at our area's public range a couple of years ago....she contacted the press wanting to get it back as I remember, never heard whether she was successful in that endeavor.

    I once had a police officer leave his sig 228 in a holster just sitting on the table. I was working at the range at the time. Whats funny the guy didn't even call until 2 days later.

    I do not think I would call it funny; I would rather call it scary.

    The RO is a cool guy, I've shot his arms many times. I don't think he would try to keep the gun for himself. But I'll keep an eye out anyway.

    As for the leo that didn't realize he was missing his Sig for two days... I'd be a little worried about that. Imagine the damage the wrong person could do with a cops gun in two days.

    How do you know the Ranger Officer won't say... " A baby Eagle, well no .... no one saw one"
