    last year my dad passed away and left behind a 22 and a 357...well the 22 had no lock on it and the 357 does, and well, no one can find the key, any ideas on how i might go about getting this off.

    I'm sure they all use the same key; go buy another one, then you have one for the .22 too.

    This remidns me of a funny thing that happened this summer. I work at a boy scout camp, at the rifle range during the summer. We brought the guns up, and they had trigger locks on them, because they were required in MA, (though the camp was in southern NH). They were total pieces of crap, seeing as the locks were only bought to comly wtih MA law. The keys only worked in 3 of the 9 guns. I was looking at the guns, and I realized we could just unscrew the trigger gaurds, and pull the trigger locks off.

    If its one of the master lock trigger locks, you should be able to twist the two halves and they will fall right off... otherwise, a good locksmith should be able to remove it in a few seconds and for $20 or so.. worth it to not risk damaging the gun if you are unsure of exactly how to drill the lock. Be sure to call or go in ahead of time and make sure they know your bringing a gun in..

    I had the same problem with an old revolver. Put a dril bit up to the key hole and drilled it out. Came apart in seconds.
