well, its somebody elses problem now.
we have a dont ask dont tell policy around these parts. LEOs around here would be more likely to have their picture taken with the cannon as to write up how it was found and mess with paperwork.
i dont know where the hell yall live, but from yalls advice for just about anything i post is to contact the authorities. its not always necessary around here. yeah, if you found a nice SAW machine gun or fully auto AK, then yeah, thats different. but a cannon in this condition, over 50 years old, and been missing since the 60s'/70's, under Arkansas salvage law says its mine. im sure somebody would want it back, but they cant get it back.
i understand the gun law of 34'. thats fine. this thing is in non firing condition. and outta my hands.
time for me to find a new guntalk board.
