I just traded a co-worker a $8 used book on airplanes for a S&W .44 mag. Kind of a good deal, eh? :)

Hopefully his wife hasn't suddenly dissappeared!

LOL, not that I know of... He just never shot it, so I told him he should give to me and I'd give it a good home.

I'm sure his home is much safer now. [rolleyes]

That's the problem, he has too many to shoot as it is. He won't even miss it...

If he's got a bunch of guns, he knows the value of them and is very unlikely to give them away, unless he is a very generous friend. In that case, you should start buying more used books. [:D]

What's his name? I need more friends like that!

Ask him if he'll take an old copy of "The Hobbit" for a Kimber. Jewbroni~

Here's the deal. I can get him any book he wants for any gun he is willing to give. I have this thing called a library card...

Why don't I believe this story? Why do I find this "to good to be true"?

Do you doubt the kindness of your fellow man? Ok, here's the whole story: A while back I was pestering him to sell me the gun. He said he didn't want to sell it, but I was welcome to borrow it. (I wanted for hikes. Bears out here.) I said that would be fine. Today I brought in a book and he wanted it. He said, "I will trade you the .44 for this book." I said, "Deal"

P.S. He wrote his name in the book, so there is no going back now :)

Was the book preban? If so, he got the better deal. Did you go through a FLL (Federal Library Liscencee.)? Man, I see legal problems written all over this deal. Make sure you wiped your fingerpronts off the book....
