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....

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
