    RG-10, made by Rohm, GMBH of Sontheim/Brenz. In what was then, West Germany. Sold very inexpensively, ($15/$25), under many different names in the U.S. Prior to the Gun Control act of 1968. Which stopped their importation.

    RG10s are the classic Saturday night special.
    Treat it w/ a 10# sledgehammer & then add it to that fine pile.

    Actually, the inner cities used to be a lot safer when Saturday Night Specials were popular. There was at least a 50% chance that, if you were the intended target, the gun would fail to fire or miss you. Even if you were hit, you had a better chance of surviving a .22 hit than a large caliber one.

    Then the Liberals outlawed their importation, so the thugs were forced to upgrade to name brand hi-cap autos, usually 9mm. Now, your chances of surviving a Close Encounter are much lower, unless you get the first shot. And, innocent neighbors are also liable to be accidental victims. Another case of the Law of Unintended Consequences.

    You might want to just put it in the safe; you never know when it will be just what you need. You might even get $50-100 for it if there is a gun "buy back" in your area.
