Ah the good ol' days of trading baseball cards. Rod Carew rookie for a box of good SD .45 rounds anyone?
Sure, with many.Barter the new currency?
I was waiting in line today for some .40 ammo when I overheard an interesting sidebar. Some guys were trading ammo like baseball cards... "I've got three boxes of 380 I'd like to exchange for four boxes of 9mm."
Just a note, the IRS regards barter values as income. Mum's the word.
I, with all due respect, don't believe barter can be considered...new.
Strange, when by definition a barter is a trade for things deemed of equivalent value. It's hardly income.Just a note, the IRS regards barter values as income. Mum's the word.
That's what I was thinking. I guess you'd have to claim barter income AND losses and make sure it balanced out on paper. Or like you said, mum's the word, after all there's no paper trail.Strange, when by definition a barter is a trade for things deemed of equivalent value. It's hardly income.
But then the IRS has got plenty of knickers to get twisted, when the smell of money's in the air.
Sure, humans have been around a lot longer than coins & currency. It's only natural, when you had something I needed & I had something you needed, we would come to an agreement about how many beaver pelts were worth, uhhh, um...your daughter! Bartering isn't new, it's been around for thousands upon thousands of years. Millions maybe, as little fish "barter" cleaning big fish in exchange for food scraps & not being EATEN. :biggrin2:...could you explain this, please?
Well what did you get when she saw your 22 short? Remember the NRA rule, Always use the proper caliber for the firearm! :wave:I scored a major find on 9mm the other day. On my way home I stopped to fill up the truck when a drop dead gorgeous red head pulled up at the pump next to me. As she walked around the pump to get to the self serv paper towel rack she noticed the white boxes laying on the seat and asked where I bought them? I told her I bought the last five boxes in stock. She asked if I might be interested in trading ammo for sex? I thought about it for a few seconds and quickly asked her what caliber she had?
Okay, joke is ancient but it felt it might fit.
A 22 Short with a hair trigger is apt to go off before the trade is completed to the satisfaction of both parties. That's what I hear anyway!Well what did you get when she saw your 22 short? Remember the NRA rule, Always use the proper caliber for the firearm! :wave:
