Default Need Help Convincing The Lady Friend To Buy Me A New AR

Well the subject line says it all.

She made the mistake of asking what I wanted for Xmas.....

I told her I wanted either a new AR-15 or AR-10.

She has two main objections

1- "You don't NEED it."
2- "It's a waste of money."

So now that it's out on the table, I need AS MUCH help as I can get. Tell me what you folks would say to plant the seed in her head to buy one. Or some good excuses that will do the same.

NOTHING is too low! Lol

Now that the cat is out of the bag...tell her you have to have it to preserve your manhood. Otherwise, you will be harassed on this forum as a p-whipped, girly man whose girl friend wouldn't let him have an AR to play with...

Well my obstacle is that I already own multiple ARs in multiple calibers. I just WANT another strictly for hunting purposes

@jon- She is a shooter. Not a very avid shooter, but she is. Just isn't quite as extreme as I am

...or, if you don't mind telling a little white lie, tell her all unsold guns are destroyed by the government...

That MIGHT work. Lol. It's a pretty good bet. Told her I wanted a new .22-250 last Xmas. She didn't wanna get it. Let her shoot my Dad's for a couple hours from 100-500M and she broke bread!

Thats like when someone asks me what I want for Christmas and I say Cash and they disapprove. So who is it they're purchasing the gift for? Who is it they are truly trying to make happy? Me or them?

If they really want to make me happy doesn't it make more sense to get me what I want instead of what they think I should have?
