My condolences to you and your father. Losing a loved one is always hard. Losing a mom or wife has got to be hard.
That being said, when I saw the title of this thread I thought it was a joke. With all of us gun-nuts here, I can't imagine an unwanted firearm. I do have a few that are probably feeling neglected, but it's not that I didn't / don't still want them I just have been busy and have not been able to spend the quality time with them. As they get older it just takes a little more work to get the quality time, especially when you have younger ones.
As I read through the first post, it isn't a joke. But I still wonder why you would want to get rid of the gun so quickly?
Do you not think your Dad will ever get over this loss so you will not give the gun back? If that is the case, then you need to get him help. It sounds like you don't think this is a problem, so why not give the gun back to your dad?

I don't know the details of your situaton, but how about you ask your father if he would like to go shot it? It seems to me that you will both have a hobby where you can spend some extra time together.
Definetly do not get rid of it without your father's consent. After all, it isn't your property.
I have never heard of a gun person wanting to just throw away ANY gun. I would love to have any gun that was my dad's. Unfortunately, he was killed back in 82 and I did not get one single gun he had.
If you don't want it that badly, give it to someone on here. I suppose that you could wait till Chicago has another gun buy back program and take it there. John
Sure looks like similar Berreta .22 models. Bet it was made by Beretta for Sears. Might be worth a tidy sum.
If it is legally yours sell it to someone who will enjoy it. Why destroy something that can still be used? I know one guy who didn't know guns. His 10/22 rusted , so he just tossed it in the trash. Seems like a waste to me.
