Default Wife wants a new AR15 :(

i got the latest issue of shotgun news at walmart yesterday as it had a good article on ww2 bolt guns, the desert eagle, and psl's. my wife saw the add for the new eichler (whoever that is) ar15.



now she wants one because the handguards have puppy paw prints... *sigh*

I don't think he is a nut exactly, but he had an interesting experience.

It could be worse...she might desire a new dining room set or some such.

I wish my wife wanted an AR let alone any gun. She talked about getting getting her CCL but I can't get her to buy her own gun.

Give her a gift certificate that has to be used to buy a gun.

Thats a great idea, my brother, who currently resides in our home, just picked up a bersa thunder 380 and I want her to like it simply because I could really use one to carry when it's too hot to carry my springfield 1911. I really like that weapon an love the price. Hopefully she will feel the same once she shoots it.
Ultimately she needs to love my AR enough for me to put together another. PRAYING

Why does she give you hell about your pink guns. Didn't she pick one out for you?
