    The trades I have made, yes, gun related.

    I used to be a real trade type guy.. This started back about 1969 or so. I was an electrician for subdivision in Houston area. I saved extra light fixtures and plugs and switches and what not.. Had enough stuff to do a house with.. Ran into a guy with local power company who did the connects and inspections on all my houses. In talking I mentioned I wanted a portable generator.. One thing led to another and I traded him all the stuff to wire his house for his portable generator..

    Traded that off sometime later for a small aluminum boat, traded that later for pool table.

    Traded that off for 30-30 universal firearms automatic with two banana clips and a Ruger 22 cal. Single Six revolver. Traded the 30-30 for flat bottom boat and outboard boat motor, motor was new.

    Sold that flat bottom boat and motor when I bought my big bay boat.. Kept the Ruger.. Sold the big boat back after three years for what I paid for it, fiberglass and petroleum products had gone sky high and it was worth the same as I had paid for it after three years of use.

    Bought a PU and camper and traded it off for two VW bugs that needed some little work.
    Sold both of them later and bought a new Ford LTD for wife.. Divorced that wife after I caught her and my best friend doing the horizontal mambo.. She got the car.. Sure miss the car..:( Over the years also traded my electrical and computer services for different work or products…

    Traded my 30-06 Remington 742 for a beat up work car,, cause I needed one real bad.

    So I was left with the Ruger Single Six after all those years… Traded it off last week for a nice Makarov 9x18mm Pistol. Getting older and not out and around as much as I used to,, maybe my last trade.. Can’t find anyone that wants to trade for any of my wife’s cats.
  2. I heard of Dog Trading...but good luck w/ those cats! :D

    Was kidding about my cats. The good watch cats and warn us when some killer bird is in the area..
    They do keep the mice population down in the barn. :D
  6. Well, that takes them out of the "varmint' category & puts them in the "critter" category! Good kitties. :)
