    And some can be classified as pieces of history (M1, 1911 etc...)
    There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11? (Yuri Orlov [Nicolas Cage] Lord of War)

    That one is very effective.

    She can't counter with much since a purse is all but garbage after it's been used for any length of time. My wife sells hers in garage sales occasionally for $1 or donates them to Goodwill. These are purses that probably cost me $40-$60 at some point.

    Wife "Why do you think you need another gun? You don't even have enough room for the ones you've got now!"

    Me "It is to keep away all the competition, you don't think I got you to marry me because of my good looks did you?"

    Wife =

    If that doesn't work THEN you start bringing up the truckload of shoes...

    You'll never get her to see an analogy between shoes and guns. I have two pistols and seven knives, and my wife just shakes her head. I tell her, two hands, two guns. I dunno what I'll say when I show up with a third. I guess I'll just point to all the shoe boxes that don't fit in her closet.

    I find it works to remind her of what in inexpensive hobby shooting is when compared to boating and snowmobiling, the pursuits of many Minnesota dudes.

    The investment angle works pretty good, too. Just buy guns but never sell one, positioning them as a "long-term investment". Who knows, they may be worth their weight in diamonds someday, right?!

    I tell my wife I'm doing my part to keep guns off the street. She doesn't have a clue how successful I've been.

    I use ''investment'' - reminding that there is enough equity to not only get be buried but - spare left over for my son to choose what he wants - and still go have a great vacation

    The ''discovered'' new gun? ''But Hon - that has been in the back of the safe for ages - even I had near forgotten it was there

    I hate to tell you bro but it has nothing to do with logic or even common sense!

    Trust me, I've been married 34 years, if your wife decides you're wrong, then to all the women in the world... you're wrong!

    I'm used to it now though and I can take it. I just say, "you're right honey." (Then I go buy another gun!)
