    i found a s&w .32 in my garage??

    i came across this gun in my garage today... i have never seen it before and know nothing about it... ive lived here for almost ten years so if the ppl that lived here b4 left it i figure i would have found it before now... this pic is not a pic of the exact gun i found but it is pretty much the same... all i can tell bout it is that its a s&w .32 left handed revolver with a 2 inch barrel... if u have any info on this gun please let me know!!

    I can't positively identify it.
    My supposition is: cheap, Spanish- or German-made, and don't try to shoot it. It's probably made of pot-metal (a zinc alloy of one kind or another).
    It isn't a S&W.
    If so marked, the markings mean only that it's made for the .32 S&W cartridge, not that it was made by S&W.

    Maybe it's just my paranoid nature, but I smell a setup...

    "Honest officer, I've never seen that gun before in my life!"

    *Edit*

    Also, why would you take pictures of a similar gun rather than the actual gun in question?

    Color me confused...??????

    I agree with ajs510, why not take pics of the ACTUAL gun, instead of a similar one. The pics were taken yesterday, so what's up here???

    Pawning under an assumed name isn't too bright as most pawn shops I've been to take a thumb print. You can assume a name, but you can't assume a thumb print. Dee de deee.

    If you want my advice, take it or leave it, I'd call the authorities. What if the gun was tossed there after the commission of a felony and you try to pawn it, you will get busted for collaboration in commission of a felony. Sure, you'd probably get cleared of any charges, but the court costs alone would be astronomical, and your record would have a nice fat mark on it. Call the sherriffs office and let them know what you found and ask what you should do with it. Being it was on your property, there may be a way that you can keep it, but I dunno if I'd even mess with that if it isn't of very high quality.

    Call the police. Let them run it through NCIC, if clean, they will most likely let you keep it. Be prepared to do some explaining if it comes up dirty though.

    Well, just because it's Louisiana doesn't make it legal, and the illegal sale or purchase of firearms could result in you not being able to own any anymore, but perhaps they don't have that law in Louisiana either.

    Like I said, it was my advice, Take it or leave it.

    Never do anything illegal with firearms. You will regret it for a long time. That gun is obviously a cheap piece of junk. Call the police, tell them the circumstances and turn it over to them. Make some points.

    It would also be best not to pubically exclaim any illegal actions you might consider taking; even if it is just gasconade.
