Paying for a shotgun that was offered to me free
I used to go skeet shooting with an older neighbor. It was fun. I had an old single shot shotgun which was widely considered a piece of s*** of a weapon. It was a Kessler 12 gauge shotgun. Look it up. It was very unpopular.
My neighbor had a fine old Italian shotgun he had purchased while being stationed in Italy during WW2. It was a beautiful piece of art.
Time passes and the gentleman dies. After the funeral, I asked his daughter how much she wanted for her father's shotgun. She said that since her father loved me so much I could have it for nothing. She hated guns herself.
I gave her $300.00 anyway. The old weapon is worth at least $3000.00.
