Default Do you tell your wife about gun buys?

How many of you honestly keep the wife in the loop of gun related purchases? Do you have any CC's that you use strictly for gun purchases that the spouse doesn't know about? How many if any have been busted by the wife and what was the outcome? Counseling, divorce?

Forgot to mention that a car was refinanced to pay off one of those credit cards. Looks like to me it's a very sad situation.

I didn't tell her about one. She found out about it and was way more pissed that I didn't tell her than she was about the gun. But that was before we were married

After the purchase.

She trusts me enough to know that I will not put the finances in jeopardy when I purchase a firearm.
I always figure that I need enough in reserve to purchase two firearms when I buy one.
She knows that she can purchase something of the same or less cost than what I purchased.
(She had a field day when I bought the Ed Brown.)

I tell her straight out. It's my money and they can always be sold if times get hard. If she has anything to say about it I remind her about the $1000+ dollars worth of purses sitting in the closet that she doesn't use and can't sell.

She doesn't ask, but if she did, I'd open the safe. She knows I've got guns, she knows there will be more.

The wife knows I will not do anything we can not afford. If I show up with a new gun without telling her I was buying it I just tell her it's was a surprise for her. Usually she will then say I don't wont that. I won't a new phone or a new purse. Then I buy her a phone or purse.

Being divorced, I don't have anyone that I need to "run my purchases" by. If or when I get married again, she will be like minded in the gun dept.

When you are married you are a single entity, or should be. If you are deceptive about your gun purchases I contend you will not be honest in other areas of the relationship. We discuss all major purchases and it seems to work for us.

Think about it like this, if your were in business with a partner and that partner suggest to cheat on taxes, how long will it be before he cheats you. It's called character. Jmo
