Why would I destroy a gun???
Sell, trade, swap, give to a kid, (ie:grandchild, nephew, niece) Someone in this world would have found great pleasure with that "fine old Remington"
The gun didn't do anything YOU did not make it do.
My Grandfather used to beat his Model T with a stick when it wouldn't start...(so I've been told)
Thats the closest thing I've heard of to what you did. Did it help?

You sir have the makings of a school shooter. I bet you put cats in microwaves too.
Hey its your gun do what you want with it. Not what I would do personally but its not my rifle.
I once cut a .22 sterling pistol in half. I worked undercover. A buy turned out to be a rip. .22 sterling went click when I needed it to go BANG!
It had to die.
Sounds like an Anti-Gun guy that's just goading ya'all into some strange replies. Personally think anyone that would destroy a gun is probably on the "wrong" website unless it was totally unusable for repair or parts. Maybe he's an imposter!!!
I'd never do that. I'm sure glad my Uncle never destroyed his Seneca Green Nylon 66 before he passed away, now it sits in my safe.

Did it make YOU feel better? If so that's all that matters.
I did once MANY years ago with a Llama .32ACP of questionable history. First firing of it, it double fired then jammed. I hammered the barrel and crushed the frame in a vise and disposed of it in a deep gravel pit pond.

UH...that would be no way!! If I did have an old gun that was worthless I think I would practice engraving on it or something but to toss or destroy a gun. Hmmm.
It's not a problem til they make it one!
I trashed a Lorcin .380. It was junk with a pot metal frame and wouldn't fire, not sure why. Only reason I had it was a friend gave it to me. It didn't need to live anymore, and I didn't want to be responsible for it. It wasn't economically feasible or worth the time to try and fix a $50 gun.
