I called this one the squidward gun for obvious reasons. It has 4 octopus like arms. This one is just off of Route 29 in the town of Broadalbin. I gave what I thought was a rather good inspection and couldn't find any metal tags that would be of use for identification. If anyone can point me in the right direction for identification on these guns then please let me know. Thank You, and Happy Waymarking, Swizzle & Family
