It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. Just remember that. Most times you can't return guns.

Sometimess I will throw it out there that I'm thinking about it or that I have the money for it. I will look for a responce. If not too terrible(like don't even think about it) I go for it, and see what happens.

She is normally only mad for a little while.

Somethings you just can't hide. Like my last purchase for instance. I had worked a side job for some extra cash, and my wife knew I had it. I dropped over $600 on a new revolver. First she will eventually see the gun that she knew I didn't have before, and what happened to the money I had? I can only get away with that when I work side jobs or OT.

With a name like "Abrams Gunner", I'd not expect a lady to wear the pants as far as you are concerned..
its not about wearing the pants or not wearing the pants, its just consideration, i mean 275 dollars isnt a whole lot of money, but it is at the same time, and if she said no, we need a stove or we need something for the cars, then id be like..ok..thats all..we both wear the pants..

good deal. my gf didn't know that I was buying a custom flinter until I ordered it and put a down payment on it. just one thing, please shoot it as much as possible. Every time you go to the range bring it with you and put a few balls down range. Don't be one of those guys that only gets the flinter out on christmas and thinkgs that they are Carlos Hathcock.

ive never been like that, i like to start in the summer, when theres no1 at the range, then in the fall i just tweak and make sure everything is kosher, but ivr never done the ML thing before so im deff going to take more time to do this right and enjoy it..

First wife example: " Honey, I'm gonna buy a Jeep." Response:" No you're not"
Reaction: Bought it and she packed to leave me. I begged and she stayed. Big mistake. Ugly divorce 12yrs later


This wife example: Honey, "I'm gonna buy a ________"
Response: " Cool! Can I ( Shoot, Hunt, Fish, Ride, Drive) it??"


Working real well so far with flinters, crossbow, rods and next week a 2010 Electra Glide Ultra Classic!! I love my wife!!


Welcome to the club Abrams!! Smoke'm if ya got'em!!
