I think you forgot to read the post about sins of omission and sins of commission. That would fit into the category of sins of omission.

I don't know if it's age or what, when we were married 29 years ago, my wife was totally anti-gun, no guns in the house. I sold off all that I had about 10 of them. That was due more for financial reasons than fear of a divorce. I had been shooting since 1964. To make a long story short, about 9 years ago I got into reloading for a 45 ACP I purchased on sale and that was the first problem, like they say don't take that first drink or you'll finish the bottle. Well nine years later and about 35 purchases (I have sold 10 of those off) my collection is what I want and shoot all the time (When I can find time to do so), I have a different strategy that works well.

"ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH SINCE NO ONE WILL BELIEVE YOU ANYWAYS", if you don't have to make up a lie you won't get caught up in it and have to remember which lie you told. And I reload for 13 different calibers now.

No, she is still anti-gun but the solution was a MARITAL tax on each purchase. It generally runs between $200 to $600 on each purchase. I support her collect of antiques and she supports my collection of firearms.
Our house looks like a painting gallery with no uncovered wall space and a collection of dolls and statutes and nick knacks that could fill 5 houses.

So when sitting at my computer, she comes up and says I should go out and get another gun, I know she wants to buy something that is just not for everyday use. (for her collection)

I ALWAYS take her with me when I purchase a new toy (kind of like a good luck charm), that way she knows what the MARITAL tax should be. Purchased 3 this year so far but the total number will depend on what she comes across next that she must have. Me, I am running out of room in my two rifle cabinets and safe.

But I guess I can always find more room somewheres.

I don't keep girls very long, usually, or, rather, they don't keep me. I'm much like limbkiller in that I'm 100% open and honest with who, what and how I am, with everyone.

I've had a couple girls question the way I spend my money, and I told them pretty much the same thing as limb states,

"My bills are paid, our tummies are full, our bodies are clothed, you have a new purse and watch, and my 401k is only losing the damn money I'm putting in it, so my extra cash is mine to spend as I see fit."

Funny how they didn't question the way I spent it when buying them a new perfume, dress and purse just the week prior... Then again, perhaps I should stop dating these 20 something girls with delusions of grandeur and self importance.

See, my wife is just the opposite. She likes all that expensive stuff to be sure, but I have to talk her into it every time. With only about a 30 % success rate.....

My wife hates guns, and wants to know nothing about them and does not want to see them and never asks anything about them. I just hope she does not go into the ammo closet and see what is there

As far as how many guns you should own, well you should only own what you need -- and we all know you Need one more than what you have at any time.

When I was a teenager, I was watching TV with a girl. A commercial came on, and after watching it, she turns to me and says, "baby, I don't want a $2,500 tennis bracelet, please don't ever get me one."

I says to her... "I'm 16. My truck was pulled from a cornfield and given to me in exchange for removing it. I work for my dad at $10 an hour. You plan on going to college, and I plan on going to the Marines. You really think I would even consider dropping $2,500 on a bracelet for you, when neither of us is stupid enough to think we're going to spend the rest of our lives together? That's the kind of thing that 50 year anniversaries are made of, not what we have together."

Maybe that was a bit too harsh. But when you consider, I was more concerned with just simple companionship, and didn't even really have a sexual attraction to her (and as a 16 YEAR OLD BOY!), I knew we weren't really anything more than just buds. And no, I never did sleep with her, didn't have any desire to. And our relationship lasted about another month after that, until she decided to be with someone else. The last time I checked, she lives in a ramshackle shack that really should probably be condemned, alone, no kids, a job at a Sonic drive in. She's got a degree in whatever it is to be a vet tech.

What the hell is a tennis bracelet? And why would anyone spend that much money on jewelry?! You know what you could buy for $2500? Lots of stuff, that's what...
