Guy was “magnet fishing” in Lynnfield, MA 2 weeks ago and “caught” 5 guns including a fully loaded Uzi.

55 years ago, Babe Ruth's piano was rumored to be down the bottom, somewhere between Rattlesnake and Clay Point. All you need is a piano magnet, a row boat and 150' of strong line ..... no license required.

I thought Babe Ruth's piano was supposed to be dumped in a pond in Sudbury Ma where he once lived.

Yes, it is. (I used to live in Sudbury.) The pond is directly across the street from the house that the Babe lived in.

I did not "correct" FLL because I'm pretty sure his take is every bit as accurate as the Sudbury legend, haha

Question Tossed by a Crook...

There's a likelihood that an Alton crime not far away, and not that long ago, was committed.

Yes, I think they said it was stolen.

Red face What I Mean...

Yes, I saw that.

But that was only the first crime. The last time it left the possessor's hands, it was tossed into the lake—likely, following other
crimes; that is, until the day it was fired.

It was likely fired near Alton (where it was found), and the perp didn't want to be caught with the gun that matched any fired bullets.

Even made of stainless steel—as this firearm is—the rusted parts don't look that bad.

This spring, when I recovered a chisel dropped from my dock just two years ago, about half of it had corroded away!
