Unfortunately, he passed away a week ago.
I don't feel sorry for him.
If this truly happened, I am sorry to hear this, but the above conflicting statements along with the tone of your posts makes you sound like either an a$$ or a troll.
If you truly have no interest in keeping the gun, I know that several people on this board would be interested in it.
On the other hand, if you are interested in keeping the gun, there are also a lot of people on this board with loads of information and a willingness to help you along your journey to becoming a resonsible gun owner and participating the joys of hunting.
Personally, I hope you take the second route. If you choose to, you could learn a lot from the people here.
