USS Missouri Gun #386

Gun #386 from the battleship Missouri found a new home at San Francisco's Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Other Missouri guns were slated to go to Delaware, Virginia, and Arizona.

According to the below article #386 "lay in the Nevada desert alongside eighteen other battleship gun barrels". I wonder what ships the other guns were from. Apparently the Missouri guns going to Delaware were stored in Norfolk.

It is somewhat ironic that while San Francisco rejected the entire battleship Iowa, part of her sister ship is finding a new home there.
