Shotgun shells

6 posts in this topic

I have some old shell I found in the garage, as usual, things get moved around in the garage. They are rusted and corroded. How can I dispose of the legally?

Cut the tops open with a box cutter and dump the shot out then take a needle nose and pull out the wad and dump the powder in your garden. In all reality it's probably easier to shoot them. On a side note without a chamber around them to focus the explosion, a shotshell detonating isn't as dangerous as one would think.

Drop them off at local police station. They will dispose of them.

Thanks....I forgot to add that these shells are probably 25 years old.

Dump them in a bucket a water and let them soak for a few days. That should make them inert enough to dispose of them as you see fit....

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
