how to repair a dented metal snare?

I've got an old slingerland snare drum that sounds PHENOMINAL!

I might not even mess with it because it sounds good, but where one of the lug holder thing attaches to the body, the body of the drum is dented inward about an inch or so.

Is there a way to fix this? I've read that when trying to 'fix' anything metal (drum-wise) to put it in the sun for 8 hours to make the metal more pliable?

Do I just try to hammer it out with a mallet?

personally I'd take it to an instrument repair place... rubber mallet might do it though...
