    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...:p

    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...

    Do what i did then take her out to shoot the one you want let her shoot most of the ammo and tben when she cant let it go tell her it can be both of your (make sure its registered in your name tho) then problem solved you get a new gun and she has fun shooting it with you.

    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?

    First off good luck.

    That said my method is 2 steps. First tell her that you don't want anything else, this makes it hard for her to think of an alternative. Second tell her that you are going to buy it later if you don't get it for Christmas.

    If she responds to step 1 that you won't use it tell her that you you can't see buying her jewelry bc she won't use it. If she responds to step 2 with money/budget issues tell her that you will just have to sell whatever it is she gets you to buy it then.

    If all else fails try getting her to buy just the upper then get a lower to match it later.

    Works too my dad once got a new ridding mower by telling my mother that didn't need any more closet space she just needed to get rid of shoes. He got a John Deere that next week and installed another rack in the closet.

    ranger, linux brought out another good tactic to try! of course my favorite one, i just go get it without saying anything, easier to apoligize afterwards, than to get permission beforehand!:eek:
