    What about your Other half?

    I know most of us are probably gung ho gun nuts, who carry 24/7 and would not be caught dead with out their primary gun-of-choice, but what about your OTHER half. Does he/she share your passion.

    Do they
    1) share no interest, just tolerate you.?
    2) share some interest, shoot a gun when you insist?
    3) very interested, shoot with you, and maybe carry also?
    4) more of a nut than you, you fight for who gets to buy the next pistol and for whom?

    Just wanted to get a survey on the readers.
    Oh yeah, my wife is probably between 1 or 2!

    My wife is not a gun enthusiast, but more than tolerates my enthusiasm.

    She's been trained by no other than Chuck Taylor and carries on a regular basis! Thank the Lord!

    Mrs. Airedale bird hunts with me, shoots revolver division in USPSA, shoots 3 gun and has her CCW.

    She's not a gun nut-just enjoys the same things I do.

    Wife recently purchased her own Glock 26 in 9mm, loves to shoot, and has begun the process to obtain her CWP.

    Just for the record, her propensity and ability to go for the "head shot" is just a little disconcerting. . .

    My wife has come a long way since we wed near 6 years ago. She grew up around guns, even her dad answered the door with his revo in hand!!

    But it was when her bro shot and killed her grandfather thru a tragic accident a long ways back, that she became, not so much anti gun but - very uncomfortable with them.

    Over time tho she has eased off a lot and now has her (my!) Bersa 380 as carry - having got her permit a year ago. She will come out shooting now and again and enjoys it when we do - even shoots darned well too, which makes me proud. You should see her shoot the AK - awesome!!!

    Only prob is trying to get her to carry much more often tho I doubt I'll ever get her to 16/7 status. Still - not bad at all - and I am proud of her even being where she is now with it.

    My wife was supportive of my gun habit since it began 2 yrs. ago. Having grown up around guns, she is very pro-2nd Amendment, but wasn't comfortable carrying a gun herself.

    She was OK to go shooting with me; we wanted a hobby we could do together, and I'm not a fan of scrapbooking. Over time, she became interested in having a pistol of her own, for when I'm not home. We tried out a bunch of different pistols, and ended up buying her a CZ PCR and later a Firestorm .380 which she will use for CCW.

    My wife is a tree hugging liberal. She doesn't like guns at all. She loves me more though. She tolerates my ownership and carrying. A little ray of hope for her is that she bought me a glock 27 for X-mas. My carry weapon now.

    Well, I suspect my wife would be a "1.2" or so. Ever since I got the XD40 in Dec., she's be real wary of me, and I couldnt figure out why. So, I finally asked her, and she told me the reason she is abit wary is that when she was a teen-ager, dating, her Dad threaten her and then boyfriend with a gun, and he (her dad) was such a NUTCASE that he'd probably do it. I can see her reasoning, being afraid I was gonna "bump her off". Heck, I can afford that, she's my "mealticket" with her working and me being retired, ha. (Does that mean she's my "Sugar Momma"??)
    I sold some exercise equipment here yesterday, and with that, I am going to go get a J-frame for her to shoot (or for me). I already picked up her glasses/ear protection, so she kinda got interested then, in a way. We'll see and will give a report back, when I can get her to the range.

    My wife has little to no interest, but is open to getting her CHL in the future.
