    Currently 4, .a .22 a .380 a 9mm and a .40

    But theses are in the last 2 years. I wish I could continue my pace but life is catching up. Oh yeah I am 23. 6 handguns is nothing, dad has 4 and my uncle has at least 4. Almost all of these will most likely be mine (have to work that out with the sister.)

    I'm sure I'll be flamed for this one!

    OK, guys. Shoes and most handbags don't count...you'd be pretty hot under the collar if ONE pair of her shoes were the same price as ONE of your handguns. Apples to apples, please.

    This is a simple fix: find her love language, learn it and speak it...and invest in her. Trust me, your investment will pay off. You'll get more guns. AND you just might get a shooting buddy, which eventually equals even more guns...and then a bigger safe!

    Which one do you carry? The same gun most of the time or do you switch it up?

    My wife has 5 horses... Well, 4 with one on the way. I make sure her hobbies take precedence over mine. After all, if I don't feed the guns or the jeep, they won't die. If she needs something for her horses she'll get it. This seems to keep me in her good graces.

    When I came home with a M&P 3 weeks ago, she didn't even bat and eye. When I brought home a 20ga. over and under (technically it was for her) she didn't think twice, even though it was 5 days later. I will no longer buy guns for her while she is not present though. The shotgun was a surprise gift, because she likes to shoot clays with the son and I. Too bad the shotgun doesn't fit her all that well. Win some, lose some.

    But between the horses, feed, hay, vet bills, etc, I sill spend less on Jeeps and Guns (and those few that know me, know my jeeps aren't exactly what we would call stock).

    I am looking for a new pocket pistol and I just got my permission slip signed when the wife found a store selling a Wii. She got the last one using my CC and now I will have no problem springing the new pistol on her. I have found if you find an opportunity to get her something she wants then it is 100 times easier to get the things I want. Good luck in your "quest" =)

    I have 1x1911,1xTaurus .38, 1xCW9, 1xXD99sc, 1xPheonix .25, 1xAK47,1xSKS, 1xMossSemi, 1xMoss Pump,1x 30-30, 1x 10-22 = 11 total

    Cool Hide 'em one at a time!

    Hide one. Tell the wife you got rid of it. Buy one. See where I'm going w/this? I've been divorced for 13 yrs so taking advise from me is probably not a good idea.

    I dunno where you find your purses and shoes, but i know my significant other has partaken in quite a few "guilty purchases" A good pair of leather women's shoes that are comfortable and stylish is at least $75 (often many hundreds more, according to her ) and a serious purse is in the 200-300 range. Now why someone needs 50 pairs of shoes and 2 dozen purses is beyond me, but I guess she is pretty cute.

    I have this system where i sell a bunch of old garage sale type junk in craigslist or on ebay and use my new found "junk" money to buy more junk. Try to find fault in that? Not only are you not spending "real" money, but you are helping de-clutter the house too!

    Ideally, 3 handguns, 2 rifles, and a shotgun sounds about minimum for me.

    I have many more that that and if you asked my wife how many I had she will say " I have no idea, probably a lot".

    Now, SIXTO--That's hardly fair. The little lady gets a shoe for each foot. Why shouldn't he be able to get pairs of guns?
