    To dispose of it soak it in a bucket of brine water, then dispose of using local disposal rules.

    I shoot mine with BB guns then bury it. lol. Seriously tho, just follow what your local guidelines are. (I'm not responsible if you harm your self doing the stuff I just said) Follow these. http://thunderpowerrc.com/PDF/DISPOS...-BATTERIES.pdf Seriously easier just to dig a little hole and bury it, it is landfill safe after all.

    Well if my .22 Crossman Target shooter will do the job I am sure your .40 will do it even better.

    If it is under warranty, call Gen Ace and see if you can get a replacement. If nothing else though and you want to get rid of it, you could always take it to your local Radio Shack and they will dispose of it for you safely.
