    Wow, just learned my wife carrying for 15 years

    not a gun, but pepper spray.

    I bought some Pepper Gel for her today. When I gave it to her she said she already has pepper spray. Huh? Since when? For the last 15 years, she told me. Carries it all the time. I'm kinda like, wow--I didn't know that. Yeah, she tells me, when she is walking to/from the car it is always in her hand ready to go--you just never know, she says.

    After I get over the shock, I suggest maybe she'd like to carry the pepper gel instead of the spray. She took the pepper gel cannister, played with it a few seconds, and said, no, she prefers her pepper spray because she has practiced with it hundreds of times and is very comfortable with how it operates.

    Not bad....


    I'm not familiar with the gel?
    It is utterly illogical to believe that passing laws to reduce gun violence will be successful when those who are commiting the gun violence do not obey the law.

    Good for her. Sounds like you have a pretty smart wife there.

    Have you ever talked to her about the possibility of carrying a her own gun?

    I think it expires after a year or two due to reduces effectiveness. Glad she practices with it. Might be time for a new can anyway...

    Uh, yeah, I feel pretty stupid for not knowing until now.

    She's not interested in carrying a gun and I don't push it.

    How long have you been married to this woman?!? Heck, my wife knows what pocket I keep my golf tees in, and she's never been on the course with me. I guess it's from extras found in the laundry.

    Hey, any married guy knows that the contents of the purse are to remain a mystery....

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Right you are Matt! If there's ever been a No-Man's-Land, it's within that confused & cluttered, tangled & dark wilderness.

    Yes, we women consider our purses private property -- no going there without permission unless agreed upon beforehand. And no going there without a flashlight, and without garden gloves, or hand wipes for post-search clean-up.
