    Would you trade your wife for a shotgun?

    I was talking with my wife at lunch and she mentioned a story her dad used to tell. So, I called to get the details.

    He pastored a little church in Welaka, FL on the St. John's River in the mid-1950s.

    He said this one gal came every Sunday. She wasn't real bright, but she was 'frisky.' She had married one of the H----- brothers, who lived in the same house, but different rooms. My father-in-law said the H----- brothers did not have a 'real high mentality.'

    Well, one day, the married brother really wanted to go hunting. Since he didn't have a shotgun, and nothing of value to trade for one, he traded his wife for a shotgun his brother had. Oh, and a hunting dog. That night, she moved in with the brother.

    He swears this is a true story.

    I asked my wife, "What kind of shotgun was it?"

    (Then came The Look.)

    So, would you? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Wink

    I think my neighbor would. I just saw a sale sign go up on their house. Apparently a divorce is in the works. Good news is if he gets the asking price for his house (I doubt he will) mine will be worth way more than I thought it was.

    Wow. First poll I saw with all zeros. Fascinating!

    Be advised that this is a public poll: other users can see the choice(s) you selected.

    I was thinking about getting a new shotgun for my wife, but no one would trade!

    You must have a death wish to even post such a poll! Because I like living, I absloutely refuse to vote! I personally knew a woman that was put up as a bet in a poker game. The woman's husband lost the hand and she moved in with his brother. After many years, her new husband finally popped for the divorce form his brother, and married her. They had 4 kids.

    Y'all be safe now, ya hear!

    What's really cool about the poll, it lists the names of the people who actually had enough clackers to vote.

    I don't qualify for this Poll since I no longer have a wife. Also a question, not knowing a lot about shotguns, what is an AA12.
    Tell you what I will trade both of my xs, but only if you have a Winchester 1897 with a bayonet mount and the heat shield. Preferbly a WW1 vintage.
