    Unhappy It's gone now.....

    So, I rush to the fun store after work to pick up my brand-new, sealed in the box G19. I ordered it last week because they didn’t have any G19s with night sights in stock. I drive home and fondle it a little before I grab a quick bite and run out the door to go shoot trap. I freeze my arse off and shoot like crap. I get home about 8pm. I decide to clean it before I shoot it for the first time, so I get all my supplies together. I spread out on the coffee table so I can watch TV with my wife. She says, “Oh, is that your new toy?” I make sure it’s unloaded and hand it to her. She says, “Ooooh, this is nice, can I have it? Will you take me to the range this weekend?”


    That’s it. It’s gone. It will forever live in her nightstand. The Comp-Tac Infidel that I ordered will be useless to me now. I’ll have to go buy another Glock.

    Shouldn't complain about your S/O liking guns, it could be alot worse.

    So order another one! What's the problem with that?
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    Such as it is.

    Get another Glock. Or three (when the pocketbook allows, that is).

    Great show with the S/O, btw.

    ROFLMAO sounds like my house , Last one she approprated was a nice little Browning Citori Superlight tho .
    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 .

    See, my wife is expecting our first child so she told me and I quote "You'd better get what you want now because we won't have the money for a while."

    Fortunately, my wife hasn't done this with firearms. Knives, flashlights, pillows, camping gear, and everything else, but not firearms (yet)!

    Nothing like showing off your new custom knife only to have her eyes light up and say, "Ooo! Can I have it?"

    comondered guns

    I posted a thread about picking up a Colt Mustang +2 a while ago, at first my wife was against me picking it up. Know where it is now?



    But as stated it could be worse, I'm the luckiest man on earth, I was able to buy my wife some diamond ear rings and a Galco Classic Light shoulder holster for X-mas...

    She's happier with the shoulder holster :D
