    I found a small clear plastic box at Silver Dollar during the Southern Grand.
    Please contact me and verify the contents of the box and I will be happy to mail it back to you.

    The $20,000 in small bills in there belongs to me. They're all green with presidents pictures on them.

    I'm wondering if it is something of value why you didn't turn it in to the club.

    Wonder no more. It is something of value. I asked at the desk, repeatedly. I would like for the owner to get his property back. That may not happen if turned in at the club. Who knows, it could be lost. The cell phone I found at a later time was turned in to the club. I hope I have answered your question. Especially since the property obviously does not belong to you.

    Also, a nice large leather shell/supply carrier was returned to the desk yesterday. If it belongs to you or someone you know, it's safe.

    Chicken Legs,

    Seems like you were a little harsh with comments suggesting you turn item in The Silver Dollar. Everyone there that I know seems like stand-up people above reproach.

    It is admirable that you want found item to be returned to rightful owner. Too bad you could not have done so without the negative connotations.

    I believe that I did lose my mind at Silver Dollar. It was lost on bank 5 post three when I lost two targets and ended up with a 98. My mind would easily fit into a small plastic box. I will gladly pay the postage for its return and would offer a reward equal to the value of what I lost.

    MikeInNPR and luvtrapguns you two are probably two of the biggest reason I get in trouble on this site.

    An obviously Honorable gentleman has chosen to take the responsibility to see that who ever owns the item/items in question get them back. The only concern the two of you can show is question his motives. He is a better person than I, as for the questions you have seen fit to ask. If it were I that found the item(s)and you made your accusations or at least innuendo. I would throw the item away and when the proper party asked me why I would tell they/he/she had you to meddling lunatics to thank for that. Seeing as you have seen fit to meddle in what doesn't concern you as the item(s)obviously do not belong to either of you.

    CL I think you have shown great character and restraint. My hat is off to you sir.

    Good response Bob. I think he did the right thing. I once found 3700.00 in an envelope and turned it in at the desk of that business. When the owner came back to claim it he found that the business owner ( or employee) no longer knew where it was.

    Royce, my hat is off to you. You did the right thing. Too bad that this site has the few people who are always ready to condem someone. If I ever lost anything, i'd hope that YOU found it.

    Royces response to your obvious questionable comment on his decision to return the property directly to the owner wasn't a "negative connotation". He simply pointed out that apparently it wasn't your property. I support his decision.

    Always feel free to jump in and accuse or question when you have no dog in the fight.

    Now just a damn minute here. My comment was:

    "Seems like you were a little harsh with comments suggesting you turn item in The Silver Dollar. Everyone there that I know seems like stand-up people above reproach.

    It is admirable that you want found item to be returned to rightful owner. Too bad you could not have done so without the negative connotations."

    1)People at the SD are nice people. Comments made seemed to me that they were not trustworthy. To that I say BS!

    2)I never suggested turning item over to SD. The implied CONNOTATION , to me, was that the SD management could not be trusted. To that I say BS!

    3)If you read my comments you will find the word ADMIREABLE used in regard to the finder of item. Whats wrong with that?

    Seems like a lot of the responses to this post are quick to jump on the "DO NOT TRUST THE SD MANAGEMENT" bandwagon. Chicken Legs found the item and is doing his best to return it to it's rightfull owner, "That may not happen if turned in at the club. Who knows, it could be lost." Great (ADMIREABLE). But to me the above quote was an unfounded attack on people I know and respect. I am forced to object. I did.

    Chicken Legs is the only one with a "DOG IN THIS HUNT". It's good to find someone trying to do the right thing. He has lost my respect for openly displaying distrust for honorable people he obviously does not know.

    This post is one I wish I had never opened. The only winner here will be the owner of lost object (hopefully). All of my comments are based on my interpretation of statements made above. Like it or not, that is the way I see it.

    Marc, I for one never took your comment any other way than how you describe it. I am with you

    I know Royce and he is trying to do the right thing. I don't think he was belittling the Dollar he just wants to get it back to rightful owner and the best way to do this is keeping it in the least # of hands possible. A shooter once left his shooting bag at the club with a trigger and a Rolex watch at my club and I called him and locked it in the safe until he returned to the club to pick it up. I could have mailed it or sent it by someone who lives closer to him but I figured I was responsible and kept posession until he was available. Royce, if no one claims it can I have half? Bill

    I for one am carrying money in my wallet that a shooter had won at one of our club shoots since mid summer . I have no way of contacting him and he is a warm weather shooter so when he stops in some day he will be given this money. It is marked down on the board of money winners but unless he comes here or at another club , he doesn`t know he won . Things can be slow at times but honest.

    You seem pretty cranky. What did I say to deserve the comments you made? Please re-read my statements. No one ever questioned Chicken Legs intent to return lost item to rightful owner, only that in doing so he suggested good people are less than honest. You have the right to say as you will, I just wish you would get your facts straight before you make a personal attack on me. I'm not a hard a$$. I will accept your apology if you man up and offer.

    Strange story, we have a check cashing outlet in from of our shop, people will park 2 blocks away and walk there so no one will see them parked in front of it, one day while looking out the window a guy came out of the check cashers in a hurry,(come to find out he was on his break from work) he reached into his pocket and got out his keys and a wad of money fell out, I went out side to holler at him but he was long gone, it was $300.00 I went in the check cashers and got his name and number and called him to let him know I had it, it took him over a week to come by and get it.. I never figured out why anyone would go to a outfit like that to get some badly needed money and then wait over a week to come back to get it..??

    Hey luvtrapguns. ... did you ever stop to think that maybe chickenlegs may not be a regular at the SD and therefore just might not trust the employees with something valuable?

    It seems that you, MikeInNPR and some others are quick to lambaste someone ... then spend a lot of time covering your tracks with more bulls..t!

    Next time think twice and type once!

    luvtrapguns I don't know what your angle is but you have now sent me a PM in which I explained my motives and actions to you. You couldn't have had time to read it and right this since I sent it.

    As a matter of fact this was posted over two hours before I responded to this post. In your Pm you weren't accusing you of attacking you or demanding an apology.

    I explained to you in the PM all you need to know I will not apologize for giving an opinion on you and MikeInNPR questioning an honest mans motives. Mike and then you were both out of line. If you can describe what is in the box then I will apologize to you. If you can't tell him what is in the box then I guess you put your two cents in where it didn't belong.

    Ivanhoe, where the he&& did I or anyone else question the mans motives? NEVER HAPPENED. The following is a quote from your original post:

    "If it were I that found the item(s)and you made your accusations or at least innuendo. I would throw the item away and when the proper party asked me why I would tell they/he/she had you to meddling lunatics to thank for that."

    Talk about mean spirited and taking things out of context. What is your problem?

    Go take a Viagra and quit making up things that were not said.

    I apologise to all that have to read this nonsense but this guy pisses me off.
    I have viewed other similar comments on other posts with disdain and disgust. Now I let myself be drawn in. I will not comment further. Too many angry people looking for a fight.
