In the local paper there was an article about a guy that went fishing near Fort Riley. Ks. He found a .50 caliber machinegun laying on the ground. He turned it into the sheriffs dept. (which is what I would have donehe
Anyone want to go fishin' up by Riley?

It's not a dupe.

Oh, yeah.

It's a dupe.

Still, it's nice to daydream about how I would handle walking up and finding such lost items...

It's considered non-dupage if there's no link.

FORT RILEY, Kan. (AP) - Five military machine guns found two weeks ago near a lake near Fort Riley were part of a group of weapons that were supposed to have been disposed of, investigators said.

The machine guns _ an M-240, a 5.56 millimeter and three Browning .50-caliber weapons _ were found near Milford Lake, prompting residents' concerns.

Investigators from Fort Riley's Criminal Investigation Division said the machine guns were not stolen and had been properly removed from a Fort Riley unit's arms room.

The CID said it was investigating how the weapons ended up near the lake and why they were not given to the Directorate of Logistics, the agency responsible for proper disposal.

The investigators said the guns were not serviceable. Jeff Coverdale, a Fort Riley representative, said the CID did not explain how the guns were not serviceable, but it could mean that they were old or damaged.

I just know it has already been posted at least once. Not that I'm complaining. Just thought I'd jump on the dupe-IBTL-get both-+1 bandwagon for a change.

One of us should welcome the new guy.
You do it.
