    I haven’t heard any of the journalists who volunteered to be waterboarded asking to have their fingernails wrenched out with pliers, or electrodes attached to their genitals.

    Bummer, for $169 I can see why "all sold out".
    So whats the back up plan?

    I don't know yet but since she approved a gun purchase maybe I can bump the $ number up a bit and get something nice. I'm sure she'll yell at me but maybe I can give her the "but you said I could" argument. :)

    she doesn't need to know that an AK cost 400-500. it can easily be '169'

    For that price you should have bought two when it was in stock and ask her about it afterward.
    If then she had said no you turn around sand sell one for $340 on GunsAmerica or GunBroker to some sucker (err I mean buyer) and gain yourself a free gun, no harm no foul.
    If she had said yes then either you present to her said 'new' rifle a few days later or you go and buy a third for her to have & hold.

    I already have an AK so the SKS was just gonna get put up somewhere. Maybe at deer camp, maybe in a hole with some ammo. At $169 it would have been nice. Regular price is $269 and they were on sale 100 bucks off. Poof they were all gone.

    Does that work with you when your wife brings home 2 pair of $199 shoes? "Oh, honey, I just couldn't decide which ones I wanted. I'll take the other pair back next week!"
