    Spelling, sentence structure and proper punctuation is always good.



    You ask if you did the right thing? Only you can answer that. Can you live with your conscience? If you believe you did the right then you did.

    Since you're Canadian, you should have made sure to say "please" when you took the guns back from the thief.

    Wow. Your post is awfully difficult to read.

    I "think" you did the right thing, if I read your post correctly?

    Really

    OP, I struggled to read that several times, it sounds like you did the right thing, but IHMO, I would have gotten law enforcement involved earlier and given them the address of the person that you traded with and let them sort it out

    Should have called the police right away.

    Next time maybe you can trade your .22 rifle for some upper case letters, and punctuation.

    Very hard to to understand but if I understood correctly IMO you did the right thing.

    Now go report your 22 missing so you can get it back!

    I bet all you guys who had a hard time reading that would have had an even harder time hearing it with a thick Nova Scotia accent. ;)

    Glad you were able to clean up your mess capie. If the RCMP had been involved you can bet everyone would have been in trouble.

    Spelling and punctuation go a long way.

    Yes, you did the right thing! Good for you. :thumbup:
    You can bet that if any of the guy's giving you a hard time were the ones who had THEIR guns stolen, grammer, spelling and puntuation would not have mattered.
    Good job!
