Wifee used to ask me, why do you need so many guns. I just turned and ask her why do you need so many shoes and purses, that was the end of that.

My wife has her Oregon Concealed Handgun License. She carries and is a shooter. When she sees gun grabbers on television, she turns to me and says, "Go buy more guns and ammo." She is currently upset that I haven't bought the James Arness - Gunsmoke commemorative six-shooter at the LGS.
Keep that Gal!

My wife is a shooter and CC licensed. We have about the same number of handguns. We almost always have a purpose/reason for buying a new one. More accuracy, more capacity, better grip fit, etc. That's the only thing we really need to justify, and that is mostly to ourselves. Once either of us feels they need a new gun, the other is supportive of it. They are tools to us, not collectables, and get shot a lot. At this point, we generally trade/sell something when we get something new. There is always one or two that were great at first, but are now mostly gathering dust in our respective gun safes.

We buy firearms because we want to. Do not justify it for any reason or to anyone. be it hand gun of rifle. Don't play games be honest with your self and others.
Why did you buy that ? Because I wanted to. then the conversation mores on to more important thing.

The OP's opening remark No Women Allowed makes me think of another old remark - A male chauvinist pig . HA

My wife ask a bout a pistol she could use in a local ladys match that had an optic and she ask about the m&p core . We read up on the model and she said she was not sure and that was that for a couple weeks but she liked it and she did handle a couple full size m&P's at our general store . Then one day come home from work one day to find my wife sitting at the firearm bench cleaning a disassembled M&P CORE and a RM02 optic sitting next to it . I ordered a apex FSS trigger kit for it right away . I have done the same kind of thing but the budget there for the occasional toys but nether of us will act like a fool when shopping or use a " No Spouse Allowed " remark but then my wife and I have been together for 44 years married for 40 years . She bought her first firearm , a DW 15-2 357mag 2 weeks after our first date and shooting my old 15-2 .

I've got more guns to cover everything I need a gun for. I could never justify buying another at the expense of something we need. I still buy guns, but not because I need them, I just want it and I don't try to justify it beyond that. If I need to replace a dishwasher, and find a good deal on a pistol I think is cool I can generally do both. If time are lean I will wait to buy the toy.
