Some of us really don't need to mess with anything more modern than an AK pattern rifle.

Some people don't need anything more modern than a rock and a leather strap.

You might want to rethink the rock part.

Funny read, DeltaF!
Back in the day, I found cigarette butts, ashes & burnt match sticks in the 870's that rode upright in their locked racks in the front seats of cruisers in a small community in the mid-Ohio valley. My personal 870 didn't have anything like that in its barrel, but after I bought it, I found out that maintenance at whatever LE agency that traded it in consisted of periodically squirting oil down the end of the barrel while it was still vertical in the front seat rack. All that oil just sat there, dried & gummed up the action. It took a lot of work and TLC to get it to function the way it should again.

Sounds like something a cop did on his own knowing his firearms staff wasn't going to maintenance it. If ranges/firearms staff do their own maintenance they usually hire or pay for at least one of their guys to go to an armorers school

Please tell me you put it in an old film canister or something. That's an unexpected souvenir I wouldn't be able to pass up.
