I went to a gun show this weekend with a few other guys. We kind of wandered around separately and then caught up with each other before we left to show off our new toys. One of the guys had traded some handguns for a nice new AR-15. He was worried about what his wife was going to think about. He was sure she was going to be pretty steaming mad about it.
Oh, you're probably thinking he's going to get it over how much money he spent. Maybe that he bought one more gun in his fickle quest for the perfect collection, or that he bought that particular gun, or that he traded all those guns she already told him he didn't need and couldn't afford. "Why'd you need that? What are you going to do with an assault rifle huh?" No, no. She was fine with all that. Sweet lovely wife that she is. His problem was that he'd spent too much time at the gun show. The dirty scoundrel was going to be late getting home!
How'd you like that to be the only thing you've got to worry about while you're carting home a new AR-15 from the gun show?
Sounds like a reasonable woman

Mine would just be mad I went without her!

Sounds pretty much something my wife would do.
Now I let her do the buying
That's how I got a Mossy 500 for Christmas, didn't expect it either, but she overheard me telling a friend I was missing a shotgun in my stable ...

I solved the problem by coming home with a new gun for the wife. I got away with being late by explaining how much extra cash I came home with from shopping around so long for the best price!
I believe that marriage is in fact a partnership, where everything must be shared and all decisions made together. therefore I say: "I want this gun, do you mind"?, to which she always replies:" I don't care". All she wants is something for herself of equal value, that's equal rights for women in my house. This weekend I got a new pistol and 400 rnds of ammo, she got a new laptop.
LOL, darn JCA1, do YOU have a brother hehehehe
My wife's only complaint would be that I traded away some guns. She hates when I do that. She would rather I hang onto them all and buy additional stuff to add to the collection. She's a bit of a packrat. She is never readily accepting of the idea of getting rid of a gun, which is great, except I can't usually afford to get something new without trading something off.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
Sounds like a reasonable wife to me.
My wife was pushing me to buy extra ammo a year ago...the first time she mentioned it, I was shocked...but being the obedient husband that I am, I went up and ordered 'lots of ammo'...

I stopped worrying about getting in "trouble" with the Mrs. She knows I dont buy what I cant afford, so she doesnt ask to many questions anymore.
