    Now that the Obama administration has approved another $2 Billion for the Cash for Clunkers automobile program to stimulate the economy, I think it's time to extend that program to other consumer purchases such as shotguns.

    Just think how many people would trade in their old clunker shotguns for a $3,500 allowance on a new shotgun. I've got several old clunker shotguns that I would gladly accept $3,500 for as a trade in on a new Kolar or other fine shotgun.

    Of course, many of the fine shotguns are made overseas just like many of the cars being purchased under the Clunker program, but that's apparently no problem for the Obama administration. Heck, I wouldn't even care if they shredded my old shotgun and melted it down like scrap iron as long as I got my $3,500 (or better yet $4,500) for a new K gun or P gun.

    Wonder who we would have to contact in the Obama administration to get this new program started?

    As our Vice Prez (Jeau Biden) is from my state (and yes I would not wish that on my enemies), I'll send him a note and see if he'll back this fine idea.

    Obama has already dramatically increased the sale of guns just by being in the Whaite House so I think you got a tough sell on that new stimulus program!!

    They are coming up with a program. You have to buy a 11 or 13 ga. shotgun though.

    But.... that's not how it works. You can't trade in a beater NEF or JC Higgins shotgun and get $3500 cash for it. Nope. You have to trade in a K-gun you bought in the last ten years on a more expensive and better performing gun. Nevermind that someone could have bought that J-gun and used it to retire a Mossberg trap or an old 870.
