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:

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.
