Texas fisherman reels in semi-automatic rifle on lake

A Texas fisherman on Saturday reeled in a semi-automatic rifle while fishing on a lake, reports said. The fisherman called the police and alerted them about the unusual catch.
Authorities met the fisherman on Lake Arlington—which is about 13 miles from Fort Worth-- and took possession of the rifle, Fox 4 reported.

The firearm is currently being held in a “property room,” according to the report.

I will not confirm or deny my involvement in any tragic boat accidents.

If it was in the lake any length of time, wouldn't it be ruined?

More than likely.

If it was an AK...wouldn't that just increase its battleworn patina, and therefore its value? :D But we all know that getting an AR wet would decrease accuracy by 1/8 MOA... totally ruining it for any meaningful purpose! :twisted:

I thought 3 drops of water was all it takes to make an AR freeze up? A's on the other hand can be trusted shut but if you bang it open with a sledge it will run fine.
