  I mean if we are trading guitars for gun's , car parts for motorcycle parts , tool's  for a fishing rod. What's it go to do with horse's ???
 
  I did a little the other day and wound up with a Mossberg MVP Patrol rifle in .223. This MVP served as Test and Evaluation rifles for a Southwestern Law Enforcement Agency.   I haven't had a Mossberg rifle in years , like before BSB's years . Shotguns ya, they break your shoulder in the 3 1/2" .
 
  I don't know if I would go plunk down what they are asking for this thing new but the trade was fair, and who can't use another .223 ?  Thing is like a tank for a little 16" barrel, and takes AR 15 mag's . The bolt is sloppy as all get out . Kind of reminds me of that , Raptor rifle they made for awhile .

I'm not sure where the term Horse Trading came from, but I have done a bunch of it over the years. 

That looks like a great truck gun. I never have owned a Mossberg rifle but I kinda like that one. It will be interesting to hear how it shoots.

Mossberg actually makes a pretty decent barrel, for a lower priced one.

I've shot a couple different ones, if you have feeding issues, (common complaint)change mag brands, it may also feed better from "steel" 20rd ones, over plastic. Looks like it came with 10rd, most 5 or 7 rd mags, are same size as 10rd, so don't order 5rd AR mag and expect flush fit.

  I was reading that they sometimes have feeding issues , and read that Mossberg says they are somewhat eliminated by properly torquing the two screws to 25 ft/lbs. Also there is a company that makes a metal bottom peice to replace the plastic one, and  thatís supposed to be a fix . It came with two Mossberg mags , and I have a a few AR15 mag's laying around. Be   great if it would be something to leave in the truck ,or in that shop .
  Donít know much about these red dot things , I guess I will learn or look in the safe for an old scope .

Horse trading, in its literal sense, refers to the buying and selling of horses, also called "horse dealing.Ē Due to the difficulties in evaluating the merits of a horse offered for sale, the sale of horses offered great opportunities for dishonesty, leading to use of the term horse trading (or horsetrading) to refer to complex bargaining or other transactions, such as political vote trading. It was expected that horse sellers would capitalize on these opportunities and so those who dealt in horses gained a reputation for underhanded business practices.

Dealing for things that are not easily evaluated.

Most of the "Horse dealings" I have been involved in have been pretty honest. I hope that is a sign of the times. 

The more I look at your picture I am thinking a 16 inch barrel would be the perfect length for a truck gun.

I'm thinking leaned up in a corner with a few 2x4's leaned in front of it should conceal it pretty good.
