Some of y'all probably have to deal with this, some not. I am about to be married in a little over a month. My future wife is not afraid of guns and she has shot before, she is actually a good shot, and she recently got her CHL with me (although it was "against her will" haha). She really doesn't plan on ever carrying a gun. To her, guns are all the same. One gun fits all. But to me they are a hobby and fun to shoot. They have different uses. I want to buy an AR-15 and a 12ga pump shotgun for home defense. Now we have the money, and technically I could still buy it with "my" money since we aren't one yet, but I would feel terrible to go behind her back like that. Plus I caught a lot of flack when I bought an inexpensive pistol a few months ago without telling her first. I want to get these guns because 1) I have always wanted them 2) I am in the military and I want her to have something easier to handle then a pistol for at home. Plus, if I have both of my pistols with me then her only option right now is the .270 or a .22LR. Neither is optimal! So what kind of advice do y'all have for talking to a significant other to have a conversation about this? Any good tips or one liners?
