Edit: Thank you Wayne.... I was mostly focusing on risk and that to my mind the reward was not worth the risk.
I appreciate the sentiment, but I still didn't say I agreed with your assessment of the risk.
I hear of too many people in the Northeast states who try to "do the right thing" and tell law enforcement they're in possession of an illegal firearm, and too often it ends in an arrest.
I'm glad it worked out for the OP.
