"I've Got a Gun in The Truck!"

Well, I finally have a link on Dan Ray’s website. It’s pretty exciting to be part of a select group. I noticed he said something about my site having info on guns so I thought I’d talk about this one.



Mosin-Nagant rifle model of 1891-1930

This is a similar rifle to one I found in a vehicle on an assisted vehicle stop a few weeks ago. The cool thing about this find was the fact that this is a really powerful rifle, (7.62x54mm R caliber). It also has a capacity of 5 rounds in the integral magazine. And the one I found was loaded and being driven around in the truck of a male subject who seemed to have metal issues.

Now, I’m not sure this is the exact model. I’m not the one who wrote the report or booked the rifle into evidence. I just remember it was a 7.62 Russian rifle and it looked a lot like this one.
