Default Good News & (Not too) Bad News

Good news, my wife said ok to buying our neighbors 195 series SS Mini 14 Ranch which comes with 3-9X40 Tasco one 20 round mag and two 30 round mags, 400 rounds of reloaded ammo and two 580 round tins of Silver Bear 55 gr. ammo (copper jacketed steel bullets and zinc plated steel cases). It hasn't been fired all that much, great bore. $750 Bad news, wife asked me who's money bought it a couple of times before I figured out she has laid claim to it. It's all good as it's a weapon she can fire without a heavy recoil.

I bought all of our guns. But Tina (my wife) and I share them all. Sure beats shooting alone!

And I was so happy with myself as to how I told her that it would help our neighbor to buy the Mini 14 due to their trip to his sisters wedding Wyoming would put them in a tight financial situation. They do live pay day to pay day so it was the truth.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Nice purchase! I'm still trying to warm my g/f up to guns. I didn't bring any into the relationship so that doesn't help much. I think my plan is to get her shooting a 22 first. Then comes the mini 14!!

Viking,

Tell her that the money that bought the Mini 14 was yours and if she did not like it then there was the door and don't let it hit her on the a** on her way out.










Then run like hell !!!!!!!!!
