    Makes sense to me. I have done similar things with stuff of mine. Just not with a gun.

    I have a few photographs I am waiting to burn in the next fire I have. Found some of my younger wild days. Put it behind me and the photos must go. It can be a little therapeutic.

    Yep, me too. I wouldn't say needless though as I did eat the rabbit and squirrel I shot. Still have that Nylon 66, and no plans to ever part with it despite it being worth the $400 range these days. It's the best 22 ever, or at least for me.

    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?

    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 enjoyed you post even more when I said it aloud like yosemite sam. No offense intended, it just sounds like something he would say.

    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.
