Considering that there were guns aboard Titanic, have any been found, or even recovered from, the debris field around the wreck?

I ask this because Lightoller mentioned in his memoirs that when he was swimming away from the sinking ship, the gun in his pocket slowed him down so he got rid of it, allowing it to fall to the seabed.

Any thoughts on this? Anyone?

Not as far as I know. Any sort of handgun is a mighty small object to find and the Titanic is essentially a debris field the size of London's Hyde Park...without lighting. It would take the wildest stroke of luck to find even one of these weapons.
