That sounds like a little education is needed.

Use a sledge hammer next time she wants a picture hung. Explain that just as different hammers are needed for different jobs, so goes the firearms. Different firearms are for different tasks.

(You did explain that already, no?)

Take her to the range, show her how much fun and challenging it is to shoot...you might have to go shoe shopping with her but that's a pretty fair trade off...

Heck my wife gives me guns or reloading stuff every Christmas. This last year she didn't know what to get. So she gave me a Really expensive set of binoculars, a razor sharp buck hunting knife and a wyoming saw. I guess she supports my hunting activities now too. I good woman is something to be cherished!!!!!

Honestly...if she feels that strongly and is already setting things up to change you, you need to find a new person to share your life. Take it from someone who lost 3/4 of everything just to get away from such a harridan--it's not worth it!

Life's too short to spend it fighting on the home front for your right to enjoy good tobacco, good whisky, and good firearms (although, not at the same time!). Just like it is unfair of her to try to change you, it is unfair of you to try to change her. If you can't come to an accommodation that both can accept and be happy with, part ways on good terms and find someone who shares your interests as much as you do.

I got into firearms after I got married and there was some friction at first. All I had to do was tell my wife "I will not let you prevent me from doing what I believe is necessary to protect our family". There wasn't much she could argue with about that.

The best thing you could do is get your significant other out shooting. Most folks enjoy the heck out of it once they do it and they will want MORE guns.

Luckily my father-in-law has three safes full of guns and goes to a gunshow at least every other weekend. My wife never had a chance...

{snaps fingers} Dang! Now why didn't i think of that before. I gotta start shooting at a range. Any advice on how to spot loosely moralled women at a range? Maybe look for the girl with a Jennings or a Hi-Point? If she will play with one of those then...

Pre-nup material for sure!

Being single is probably the smart move for me.

Gello- you start looking for the girl that has better guns than YOU do!!

Called marrying up.

Serious advice to the OP- this is the sort of thing you need to get sorted out. No, am not going to suggest the Neanderthal approach- that rarely works in real life. But DO take her shooting with you. Even if SHE does not wind up digging it (and she very well may) she SHOULD appreciate what it means to you- as YOU should appreciate the things that are important to her. If you two cannot do that to give each their space, my crystal ball sees strife, misery, and anxiety ahead.

I bought my lady rubies- because I love the look on her face when she puts them on. She once gave me an Othello Red Dot throwing knife (Solingen, Germany) because she knows I like stuff like that. Called being happy by making each other happy.

Orangello: C3 is right. Just be subtle and dont drool all over her guns. Compliment her guns while not looking at her chest. better yet, find one that works in a gun shop.
