    I traded my Churchill Highlander 7mm mag for a NIB glassbead blast cabinet and sprayer. I later traded a Weatherby Vangard 300 wby mag for the Highlander back.

    I traded a Mossberg Chuckster (rifle 22 WMR) even for my very first custom knife. In hindsight, the mag was a wim at a gunshow, but so was the knife. Still have the knife.

    I traded a Kimber Tactical custom and a Browning BDA 380 for a engagement/wedding ring set.
    Got it estimated a $3500.

    I traded a bunch of empty brass to a ammo guy at a gun show for cash that I turned into a marlin 1894 .357 at the same show.

    Traded an old Ward's Western Field 12 guage shotgun for a lawn mower once upon a time. It's been at least 20 years and three states away, so I'm pretty sure the Statute of Limitations no longer applies.

    I'm pretty sure he still has it, so I could trade back if necessary to keep us both legal. :)

    On another forum most of you know of, I traded a Remington 700 in 7MM Mag for a quality digital SLR body and lenses.

    We both made out like bandits!

    I've never done it but my father, who owned a gas station/garage, traded a tank of gas for a Winchester 1895 back in the late 60's.

    -Traded a bucket of .40 brass for a .45 AMT Back-up that needed a little adjustment. Now I've got two of these hard-kicking little guns.

    Trading guns for non-guns, creates a rip in the Man-time continuum. Once that has been done, it is very difficult to close, especially if a significant other discovers this tear.

    I traded an old beat up Mossberg 590 12ga for a new laptop for the wife. Still have the wife, laptop is going strong. I think the guy said the 590 crapped out on him a year latter.
    Back in 1972 i tried to trade a Remington 700 for the wife. He would not give the gun to me, and would not take my wife.

    I'm regretting not accepting the Ruger for my Fender now...
    I feel like I'd be able to sell it faster.


    Anyone need a guitar? *wink*

    I traded a Marlin 80 that needed a little TLC plus a roll of fence and some firewood for a load of garden soil delivered and some grass fed beef steaks. I think we both thought we scored a deal.

    I traded a nice little Taurus 605 .357 mag for a 12' kayak. I've definitely gotten more use out of that kayak than I did the Taurus. ;)

    I didn't really trade, but my wife baked a cake for a co-worker that gave me a Mosin-Nagant.
