    Trying to find out the name of a film starring either David Janssen or Dana Andrews.
    Not sure if it's black and white or colour. It;s possible it may have been an episode in a TV series. Details are sketchy as my father mentioned this a few years ago and he is no longer alive.

    The plot concerns a murder of some sort with a rifle but the murder weapon cannot be located. The rifle is finally found at a petrol station where the weapon has been placed in the hole in the ground that petrol tankers use to supply the station with petrol.

    Does this ring any bells with anyone?

    Sounds like the plot of one of the episodes from David Janssen's TV series Richard Diamond.

    There's a missing gun in Warning Shot which stars David Janssen, but it's been so long since I've seen it I can't remember any more details...

    The missing gun in that one is a handgun and it doesn't involve a petrol station ..... good film that, watched it the other day.

    I think you're correct. It sounds like "The Merry Go Round Case" episode.
