I was once presented with a similar opportunity but they were pistols; three milk crates full ! Some high-class pieces were in there even from my casual glance. I turned it down. Can't say I've not regretted it, but then common sense and reality kicks in ! >MW

Millright you should not have been in the Colt Warehouse late at night any way.

Every time I see this thread at a quick glace It looks like it says "Hitler finds stash of AK-47s in Phoenix"

No matter how many times I see it...

I guess I don't understand some on here. If you were out hiking and found a $20 gold piece would you turn that in? I always thought finders keepers if there was no hope of finding the real owner.

A 20$ gold piece doesn't have a serial number that could prove you are retaining stolen merchandise, which could land you in jail. In addition, the chances of that gold coin had being used to murder someone is pretty slim.

As far as I know, there are no draconian gold laws on the books.

I'm not sure what I would have done, but I do know that I would have had some deep thoughts before making the decision, whereas finding cash or gold pieces would have been a much easier decision.

You might get away with taking the stash, but you could never risk using the stuff, because if the SHTF, and you end up with one of them being taken for evidence, even for a justified shooting, the serial numbers would get you a ticket to jail.

I would put them into deep hiding at home and hope the NFA gets changed and puts some slack on full auto.

I'd be in trouble, very fast. I'll say that.

If you were a prepper they would make ideal off-site stash guns. Clean up the guns and stash with a loaded clip for very low cost.
