    Agree! LOL, I'd be more impressed if she'd supplied a can of ammo too.

    Very nice. My girlfriend does not know one gun from another. Whenever I get a new gun, I just pretend that I have had it all along. I don't come out and say that I have had it all along, I just don't say anything and she just assumes it. So, I am not lying. I hope to keep things that way.

    My wife wonders why I need multiple 30/06's, multiple 12 gauges, etc. I told her I was a gun polygamist, it's part of my religion. She said that's OK as long as we're just talking guns.......

    don't tell


    So, do you feel more loyality toward your fellow women, or your fellow gun enthusiasts? Think about that before you tell.

    My friend's Mom used to tell us as kids "Whatever you do in the dark will always come to the light". Secrets are a no-no in my house...... But I was just messin' with ya. ;)

    guns


    There are exceptions. My guns are not a secret yet they will forever remain in the dark, at least in my house. When I am reloading and she asks me what I am doing, I just start spouting off a bunch of technical ballistic jargon until she says, "never mind."
    I know you were messing w/ me. No harm done. All in fun.

    Well now that I see that you're a retired teacher, your secrets are forever safe. Teachers have to stick together. ;)
