Best Answer

No, you can't keep anything that you have found until you have reported it to the local authorities and given the rightful owner the chance to reclaim it.

Guns also have specific regulations regarding their possession and storage, so the fact that you found one could "trigger" an investigation or become the missing link to a previously unsolved crime.
