Ugly Gun Sunday
"A rancher friend of mine decided that he needed a real cheap and beat up shotgun for his truck. Sound familiar?
Anyway he told one his hands to find him one, and the hand came back with a real $25 doozey. It's a Savage bolt action on which some one had carved the left side of the stock with the word Catdaddy.
We all howled when we saw the gun. It is the ugliest gun I've ever seen. Upon closer inspection it was evident that something had been carved on the right side of the stock, but later covered up with a substance not entirely unlike bondo.
Since I do some minor smithing for some friends I was assigned the task of cleaning up the shotgun. Well, after an hour of careful and painstaking archaeological excavation I discovered (as I suspected) that Catdaddy's girlfriend's name had been carved into the other side.
My guess is that Catdaddy broke up with Linda after he saw what she did to his favorite shotgun. Maybe he even used it on her..."
