Boomsticks: The nearly-free gun.

So, in a largeish trade we did recently, we acquired a little youth-sized .410 gauge H&R Topper. Not knowing what else to do with it, I stuck it out on the floor rack for $49.

I've been thinking about it ever since.

I mean, I've spent more than that on lunch before. Ponder the following, if you will; for less than a C-note, somebody could pick up a cosmetically nice, functioning gun (complete with tax and TICS check fee), plus plenty of buckshot, slugs, and birdshot. It's nice and small, so it'd be an ideal truck/trunk gun. It'd make a better canoeing gun than one of those Henry Survival Rifles. (If the Henry falls overboard, it floats. If the H&R falls overboard, who cares? It was only $50, after all.) It'd make a great gun for teaching kids to shoot.

It's sounding more and more attractive by the day.

Y'know, I don't currently own any disposable guns, myself. Hmm.

Your blogs are so well-written, Tam, that the typos and simple errors stand out to those of us who maek several of them in each parapraf. ;)

So I know your face must burn to re-read that first line of this post. :D
