Best Answer

According to an interview with former NFL referee Jerry Markbreit which you can read by clicking the 'Jerry Markbreit Interview' link on this page,

"The practice of using the gun ended around 1980".

I just watched the NFC championship game from January, 1982 and they used the gun there. I would like to know when it stopped and why. Thanks.
