The guns were antiques. They were kept in a locked duffle bag- like an old money bag. Each gun was in it's own leather and sheepskin case. They had initials and names burned into the leather. I don't know where you read they were carried around like a bag of potatos.
You guys make it sound like I was twirling the gun on my finger.
I did exactly as I should have. i handed the gun in the case to a police officer to inspect it.
Under the circumstances, what should i have done?
