    I have a friend who plays guitar with me. He loves to buy & trade. Sometimes he has a different guitar every other week. I asked, "How do you do that without Kelly (his wife) going nuts?"

    He grinned and said. "I buy red guitars." Sure enough it may be a Les Paul or a Paul Reed Smith or whatever, but most are red. "If Kelly ever mentions the (new one) I say- Oh thats my red one." She doesnt know the difference and he didn't lie.

    So- Sixto you can say... "Its my Sig."

    She wont notice or even care much if she did, but I do. I'll feel like I'm slighting the kids at Christmas.... and they really are spoiled.

    Well six then split that 200 between momma and the kids ... My honest advise as an old married phart tho is to insure momma gets what she desires lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Its really not a money issue, its a guilt one. I feel like if I have the money to buy a gun that I dont need, I should be using that money for my Kids Christmas. The thing is, they already have tons of stuff waiting to come down the chimeny. I'm torn between a Sig and spoiling my children even more. Both would make me happy.

    My advice is to pass on it..........you'll get over it in thirty or forty years.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    If you think really long-term, someday they might be inheriting your stuff so - it could be a win-win for all :-)

    Love means never having to say you are sorry....oh pooh, that was in a movie and not real life..Be like me, hide things well. Luck, but pick it up.

    SIXTO I had a collection for you lined up and then you say it's not the money.
    Would a group hug help your guilt?
    All kidding aside if you are not comfortable with it then don't do it. Take care of the family and you'll feel better.
    Then you never know...something better will come along.

    Just make sure that your kids get the SIG some day.
    You're just delaying that particular present for a while.
    It can come down the chimney later.

    No, not yet. This fence I'm sitting on is starting to hurt.

    I'm with Redneck on this one, plop down 1/2, spend the rest on the family and pay it off in Jan. This way you get your's, they get something nice as well (either collectively or individually depending on what you buy) and there's no guilt.

    Apparently something is not right about you getting this gun. Follow your gut. Pass it on to a fellow SIG less board member. PM me for an address to send it too

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
