    Went shopping to get a few necessities with the tax refund from my income taxes. Was brousing wally world while the missus and the kid were "shoppin" They had the sweetest Mossberg 835 decked out in Realtree camo,Fiber optic rifle type sights and ported/ with extended Xfull turkey tube choke 20" bbl. I ALMOST just bought it,But I didnt. It had me lured ,But it was a WANT ,not a NEED. :confused2:

    Ah! The temptation of seeing something you want, but have to hold back, asking yourself. Do I really need it? Been bitten by the bug plenty of times. Regardless it's fishing or hunting equipment. I know the feeling. Hold out and maybe it might be on sale sometime and you can get it for a cheaper price. Just a thought.

    You sure know how to get every ones attention buddy.Don't do that.Really thought something was wrong with you.
    It takes a lot of will power to turn and walk a way like that.I know mama was proud of you.Or did you even tell her:roll_eyes:?

    What's "Need" got to do with guns and fishing stuff???!!!:smile2:
    Sounds like it stopped you in your tracks,,,,,,,But, you covered yourself by, circling around, and seeing where the sales person was, then ,, eased into position,, and had a gander,,,checked it out....:wink:

    Oh, yea, Glad you didn't have a heart attack or crack your head open, or sumpin',,,, I was concerned, too.

    Your a strong man for sure. I have been trying to justify gettin a new shotgun in camo, but it just hasn't made the top of my priority list yet. I have 4 shotguns now, so the need it not quite there yet. But I feel your pain.......

    Ive got that gun you were looking at 223, great gun, I love mine, and its perfect for turkey, still patterns well out to 60+ yds with the 3.5" shells. Ive had mine for several years, still holding up

    Good post Mark, my thoughts exactly. Proud of ya Richard! :cool2:

    You done gone and scared the poop out of all your brothers now....somehow I KNEW that title couldn't be literal. SURELY you wouldn't do that to your SISTERS. :tounge_out:

    I tried to figure out what it could mean for a minute before I read the thread, and the only thing comin' to me was that you might've gotten in a fight with a big old turkey and had to bite him for some reason :smile2:. Whatever, to each his own - I prefer mine plucked and cooked before I bite 'em. :wink:
