Default question for you all ?

i went on a rabbit hunt with my fiance's little cousin last week. I shot the only rabbit of the day and since i had to leave he said he would enter it in for me since i couldn't make the weight in. We agreed that if he won something with it that i would get the gun. (both of us where entered in the tournament). He won a gunand his father is being a dick about it calling all his friends telling him my boy won a gun and yada yada yada. So we go and get the gun and he has me put it in my name so that he can give it to me for christmas and it will already be in my name. WE get there and he falls in love with the gun and takes it home and throws all the packaging away and i got my presents tonight from him and the gun wasn't one of them. What do i do about this ? i mean i think i have been ****ed and i am not very damn happy about this. He is telling everyone that he won and he didn't. This isn't right and i am very pissed off about it. His parents both know i won it and it was my rabbit and they don't seem to care ! What can i do about this ?

PS...him and his father have 60 guns , no lie , and i have 1 ( my .30-06) so it is going to collect dust like the other 10 .22's he already has. [X(]


yeah i know i might be bitching , but i mean i was raised that you don't tell someone your going to do something and promise them it , and then not do it cause you want itinstead. Unless i earned something when i was young i didn't get it. I don't see how he can morally feel it is right to keep it knowing he didn't earn it or deserve it !

I would say just walkaway, and chalk it up to Cow Pattys happen.
It's not worth loosing your fiance over a gun.
Just remember what goes around - Comes around.
Some day it will backfire on the fiance's little cousin.

If you let it go you will be looked up to by your fiance.

Just Let It Go

JMHO

go hunting with him again, ask him if you can try it out. then unload it and drop it in the parking lot. then , as you bend over to pick it up, pull a charlie chaplin and kick it as you bend over... repeat as often as you can before he screams...


that sucks and is a buncha bull, but at least you know the caliber of jerks you're dealing with!

That really sucks. However, I agree with the other replies. I think you would be best just to way away and turn the other cheek. Brownie points with the fiancee. If it were me though, I wouldn't be in any rush to go hunting with the cousin or the father any time soon.

Report it stolen since its in your name. I'd tell him you wanted your gun, and if he refuses call the cops.

I agree, if it is in your name then let the cops go get it for you. as far as your fiance, she is your fiance because she loves you, she will stick by you with your decision.
good luck
