My wife doesn't hate my guns but she told me I have way to many and I'm not allowed to buy anymore. She asks what I need them all for and blah blah and god forbid I buy any accessories... Like a $1250 acog which was expensive but she thinks it's extremely unnecessary (got my ass chewed). I think she's just really pissed that I'm not spending all that money on HER lol I've snuck guns in, told her I've had it (all Glocks look the same to her) hell I even told her I won a rifle in a raffle because I didn't wanna hear her mouth. I'm even having to sneak in ammo! She just won't understand

One place we agree.

Still have to hear about the time a couple of years ago when I bought a wonderful SKS from Cabelas for $179 and did not buy 5 as she requested...
Never hid one but did introduce my second Eotech with some careful tact!

My wife knows I like guns, and she knows I have several. She just don't have a clue as to how 'several' I have.

You would never buy a gun shy "Bird Dog". So why would you marry a Gun shy woman??

Because the things I do with my wife are VERY different than the things I do with my dog!



On a serious note, the wifey loves guns!

Because most guys hide guns until well into the relationship. Go to a shooting range on your 2nd or 3rd date while she's still too polite to say anything and start her on shooting or find out her experience level. That way, you always have the defense that she KNEW what you were like from the very beginning!

I dunno. There are advantages to a collar and leash.

I was in the same boat back when I was using our collective bank account to buy my guns.

But we reached an understanding that any money I made selling my grips could be used on anything I wanted without question since it was not money that we calculated in our household budget. That's one of the main reason I worked so hard really on to build my business. I always wanted a new gun and need to sell some grips to pay for it.

Now that I have my FFL, guns come and go with frequency so there's little way she could keep up with what's mine and what's for sale.
