Your welcome and you deserve a break today! lol
Hey Don't feel bad that hubby's an expert, an your not an expert . . yet!
No offense intended but here's a little food for thought on the expert hubby issue, if you think I'm full of beans please just ignore this post, OK.
You could try to just lovingly point out to the OL gun expert -
*in a sweetly sad and gently submissive voice* *grin*
That you feel so short changed by life because you didn't come out of the Womb a gun expert, like he did and how unfair it is that you'll actually have to acquire all the knowledge through diligent study, training and experience.
You could do what 1 of my GF's did to me when I was young dumb and full of *** ah . . er myself?.
A Funny thing happened to me on my way to growing up, Way back in the day. . .
My girl went complete dumb blond on me, and I mean completely "vapid" to the point that the only things she could figure out how to do for herself was her nails and eating and drinking, all the rest was all me doing it for her because ya know she was too dumb to understand my explanation on how to do it for herself. . .
soooo about 5 hrs or so later and
I was SOOOOOOOOO ready to pull my hair out, and scream, that she felt sorry for me an cut me a break and just let me have a really good, clear picture of just how intelligent and capable she really was including all the things she had been letting me think she needed me for!
Well after that frustrating, very humbling experience I definitely dialed the HE MAN hormones down a couple notches and from there on out I only occasionally did the HE MAN chest beating thing.
You could just tell him
" humility shows character and grows out of love and wisdom"
Hey I'm just sayin . . .
But . . . YMMV
Congratulations on that fine hand crafted Bullard holster
and enjoy it!
Good luck N.D.
