    The Mississippi and Missouri Rivers are very low right now. This creates all kinds of sand bars, which are fun places to shoot. So I decided to load up and do some plinking. Well, I just couldn't make up my mind about what to bring so I just loaded up the boat with all my guns.

    I got half way across the river and a barge came by creating a huge rolling wake. Dang if that wake didn't flip my boat and dumped everything into the river. It was terrible. The water was cold. I had to swim 150 yards wearing clothes and a heavy coat. When I reached the bank I was exhausted, confused and disoriented. When I went to the police station to report the accident I was so shaken I couldn't even remember on which river the accident occurred.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :D

    What guns? My 4 ex wives stole them from me...all of them. And I am still on hold with the local PD trying to file a report.

    I gave all my guns to mexican drug dealers, the D.O.J. said it was perfectly legal as long as I didn`t try to track them and lost all records of said weapons

    Before my x-wife took off she pawned my 12ga double barrell damascus twist steel barrel shotgun, a Browning Sweet 16, A marlin Stevens single shot .22, and a Winchester 30-30. I had them under the bed and didn't miss them for a week. She wisely would not tell me where she was and didn't show for the divorce!!!

    You SOB! I believed you until I got to the last line. I was ready to contribute to a fund to get you new guns. I'm a gullible fool.:eek:

    Hey Duster, I bet he'd still take your contribution. You know those ammo prices keep going up (if you can find any!)

    Yep...Sounds very plausible to me! Good thing you weren't wearing hip boots of chest waders...Eeeek!

    Grand idea, but I don't know if I'd want to get wet as a testament to reinforcing my story in freezing waters as I trudged into the local PD Station to report such a catastrophe! Had enough of that when I'd tear a hole in a wader while standing in knee-deep water while duck hunting, but I was a die-hard waterfowler and didn't let shivers and hypothermia deter me from my appointed rounds with a bag limit of good eating table fare. I went through several pairs in my young and foolish days!

    Thanks for the story...err, sorry you'll have to rebuild a collection IF you can find any at affordable prices. Plain Jane XLs are about $350 these days and the 336s, man folks are proud of those levers.

    Good week...one and all.
