So 94browninghunt, what did you say when she said she was going to limit the number of guns you can own? If you said nothing that is implied agreement. The others who have said to introduce her to shooting are on target. She may not take to it like some do but it is sure to get her to think about it. Don't just shoot paper (or if you do use some Shoot-N-See targets so there is a response) make it fun and shoot some knockdown targets or maybe shoot some paintballs or something that gives you a response. Maybe take her out to the trap range. Shooting plastic bottles full of water is great fun.

If all of that fails show her this video.


And then show her this one


That oughta cover it.

13 years ago my ex-wife and I were at a yardsale in our area and ran across an M1 Garand and a few other pieces. The M1 was tagged at $175.00 so I asked if the price was correct. The older couple running the sale said yes, so i pulled out my wallet to purchase it after a closer examination. The Exe's response; " If you buy that, I WILL divorce you." Needless to say I informed her that she was free to leave anytime she wished to, and I even offered to help her pack. When we got home, she opened the phone book to look up something (probably lawyers) and I fired up the computer. I showed her the value of that rifle, which I had just picked up for $175, and her jaw hit her chest.

We still split a year later, but it was not over the M1. Instead it was over her having someone else's kid, and my refusal to stop riding motorcycles after a minor wreck ( no broken bones and the bike was still rideable). I stilll have my M1 and my bike. She now has 3 kids and is on divorce #2. I am married to wife #2 who is into hunting and shooting sports. The only way i get into trouble for bringing home a gun now is if I don't bring home atleast 80 rounds with it. I am happy with who I am with now, but i was never unhappy with who I was with before. Looking back i should have been.

I think you should seriously consider the advice given to you in this thread, and start by talking with her. Then take her out shooting and see if she enjoys it. There is hope for your relationship, but understand that it will not be the end of the world if it ends. I have had 10 years with a fellow gun nut, and it has been thoroughly enjoyable.

Told her "I don't want to be calling the cops who 5 mins away when someone has a knife to Ur neck trying to steal all you're precious jewelry babe." and she fell for it and Infact she asked me if she can try some of my rifles just so she can get used to it and "check out whats so cool about shooting"...I said hell yes.

Defnly gonna use those videos if needed after this weekend

saw this comment on one of the videos u posted:

"8 Reasons Why Some Men Prefer Guns Over Women:
8 You can trade an old 44 for a new 22
7 If you admire a friend's gun and tell him so, he'll probably let you try it out a few times
6 Your primary gun doesn't mind if you keep another gun as a backup
5 Your gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo
4 A gun doesn't take up a lot of closet space
3 Guns function normally every day of the month
2 A gun doesn't mind if you go to sleep after you use it
1 You can put a silencer on a gun"

in the end: Cant live with them....cant live without them

hahaha

Again bro, start slow and small and work up....you want to encourage marksmanship and NOT flinching. Throwing her into a 300 win mag or 12 gauge w/ 3 1/2 inch slugs is NOT going to encourage her to continue.

Do it right and THIS is what you have to look forward to in a short amount of time.(your lady stepping up and out shooting YOU one day!a few days later i was able to redeem myself...)

Both groups are the wifes...not bad for a former gun hater!

There's no issues with owning guns with my husband and I. He's a gunsmith...
