    That pond was dredged in the mid 90's those must have been recent boating accidents

    You need a class 3 or mass mg license to fish for machine guns.

    Circa late 1800's, Gen. Tom Thumb of Barnum fame was firing his cannon from a boat in Assawompsett. Being of small everything, he didn't quite understand Newtonian physics. Cannon fired and shot itself over the side of the boat. Lost to the lake forever.

    I've been tempted to just drop a magnet while getting from one place to another to see if by dumb luck I could find it. How I'd raise it in a no-contact reservoir, I don't know. At the very least I could mark it and document it.

    Not sure if that's a thing.

    Personally, I'd go fishing for Babe Ruth's piano first.

    If it was a mini Uzi would he have to throw it back?

    Never heard of magnet fishing till my father mentioned it during Christmas. Grabbed him a 500lbs magnet and some line for Father's day and doubled the order so I had my own setup. Tried it while I was in NH tubing down the Saco. Found a pair of broken RayBans and a no-name multitool. Will be trying it again this weekend at several small bridges.

    Many years ago my wife was swimming off the dock up at the lake house in NH and lost her wedding ring. We dove and dove but couldn't find it. The next summer I was fishing off the dock and brought in a big bass. As I was cleaning the fish my knife hit something hard! It was my thumb. Jack.

    You want to try Beaver Pond in Franklin, Aaron Hernandez's crash pad was right down the street and they never found the murder weapon.

    I hope the magnet guy has his LTC and informs the PD about the three dollar law.

    His fiancee disposed of the glock in what I assume was a small pistol safe hidden in a plastic trash bag.

    I'm assuming she wasnt aware of the crash pad until post SHTF

    I thought the glock wasn't used in the murder, I remember seeing cops looking at the roof of the condo he owned or rented. Beaver pond has a very dark past so I wouldn't be surprised if he tossed the gun in there.
