So I'm down at my buddy's house in Phoenix for Thanksgiving and he tells me an interesting story. All summed up, he found a Phoenix Arms 10/22 in the trunk of his 1996 Ford Mustang. It was stashed under his spare tire. He bought the car privately from someone local, who in turn had purchased it privately from someone in Florida. I took a look at it and it was banged-up fairly well. Looks like it had been there for quite some time. It was chambered with a full mag, as well.
If you own a Mustang like this, you know that you can't really slide something in there. It appears it was stashed there. I reccomended he run it through DPS to make sure its clean and to get the serial # registered to him.
