What a tale this gun could probably tell

A few years ago I was in New York City. Those of you who are familiar with Central Park may know where the Loeb boathouse is on the shore of the lake between 72nd Street and 77th Street. I took this photo while I was there. The gun was on display in a glass cabinet, for all I know it is still there. It is a S&W Double Action 38, similar to the one in the photo below.

The lake is man made and it is very shallow. The description of the gun says it was found when the lake was dredged a few years ago. Clearly it was underwater for a long time. Interesting to speculate on the circumstances behind how it wound up at the bottom of a lake in Central Park.

Im just going to go ahead and guess that that gun was probably used in a less than totally legal manner...
