Because he couldn't bring himself to just throw away such an expensive weapon, he's still got it, and the forensic guys easily match it to the crime. * '''Reconstructed''': He's careful to only ever use his signature gun as a WeaponForIntimidation, and lets his {{Mooks}} do all the actual shooting.
