Much like the picture Lady M put up some things should be hidden! So when you able to take your pistol home put it away and enjoy it as personal property. If she asks where did that come from, smile and tell her, it's been around for a long time. Much like the dresses she buys and when you ask is that new she smiles and say what this old thing? At least your being sort of honest (it's an old pistol). That's my personal expereince and seems to work for me and my girl.
