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 remember when I first moved to MN I went down to the dam with a buncha angleworms. Coudnt keep the smallies off. LOL

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.

      Strange indeed... Try looking for much more slack water compared to the beech you were yesterday and today. The West side of the dam was on fire this afternoon; a friend and I were in the double digits within an hour.

      I just signed the petition "Robbinsdale Armstrong High School Athletic Director: Allow Trap/Skeet Participants to Earn a Chenille Letter." and wanted to see if you could help by adding your name.
