The struggle is real.

    • My first wife said ‘if you buy one more gun I’m leaving!’
      I said, “oh, sorry to hear that, my dear? I’m sure gonna miss you.
      Just to make sure I quickly bought several more.

      • Dear Sonia, look for a guy named dacian on this forum, he’d be all over this. You may have to leave your calling card at each of his posts though, just to make sure he gets the message. Cheers and I hope that new medication works out for you.

        • 30+ years with the same beautiful lady.
          It’s not a 2A thing; it’s a “budget for your toys” thing. Mrs. Haz haz a gat of her own…

        • Yeah, not having a legally restrictive spousal wife doesn’t mean you don’t ‘have’ any women in your life. It just means that you opt for a relationship that provides all you really ‘need’…and nothing you don’t.

      • After 35 years I don’t think so. It isn’t a 2A thing as much as it is she’s afraid of them, mostly the modern semiautomatic ones. She doesn’t understand why I “need to have so many,” but I don’t understand why she needs to buy so many clothes. So we’re even. And what she doesn’t know about won’t scare her.

    • “That assumes the wife knows about all the gats in the first placeโ€ฆ”

      I’m not gonna give him any crap on that, especially when it can make a lot of sense.

      The guns she doesn’t know anything about, she can’t inadvertently tell the wrong people about.

      A perfectly rational OPSEC with that method…

        • That’s a damn sight better than you. The only woman you’ve ever even laid eyes on is yer mom at the top of the stairs asking if you’ve seen her laptop. Again. Still. Do you at least wipe it off before returning it?

        • avatar Geoff "A day without an apparently brain-damaged mentally-ill demented troll is like a day of warm sunshine" PR

          The person that lives with me got quite a chuckle from that one, little boy.

          Very little, I bet! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I’ve written past OPSEC articles on this subject and commented here in this forum about it already, so all kidding aside for a moment. Here are three immutable reality facts of life in the current anti-Liberty Marxist Tyrannical Environment, that should be burned into every Constitutional Patriot’s mind.

        1. Never say anything on the phone you don’t want repeated in court.
        2. Never write anything in an email you don’t want to be filed in a DHS Cloud.
        3. Never, EVER, allow Anybody, especially your wife or family to know anything at all about the untraceable gats you don’t want the confiscation teams to take. There is absolutely NO exception to this rule. If you die, the location of your stash dies with you. And by the way, that conversely goes for a Gal who might be a bad-ass-babe who is a strong patriot who has an ‘indifferent’ significant other, or is a single mom with children.

        If you’ve already hid your shit and feel smug and certain it will never be discovered if your trusted-with-your-life wife just exercises her rights and refuses to talk with the jack-Bs, which won’t matter because They will be doing most of the talking, seperately, of course…do some cover strategy like telling her and family and anybody who might ‘know’ that you decided it was too dangerous to hide shit from the g so you’ll just get rid of it so you don’t have it anymore and if they come for the known 4473 stuff in your safe, well, then they’ll take it and there’s not much you can do about it.

        I’m not going to elaborate so that still ignorant LE agencies get a free instruction in absolute persuasive productive interrogation techniques without the need for physical torture, but I hope anybody on these blogs is not so trapped in their own denial prison to think that their spouses would ‘NEVAH’ –as they say in South Carolina– give up their hubby’s secret gat stash? Because I can’t tell you how many times I saw this in person over a long, long career where If the ‘correct’ discussion is ‘opened’ they all cave to the police. Never had even one exception to that ‘rule’. Mostly it was with regard to drugs, and crime info, but often enough it involved little hesitation in giving up stashed gats.

        Also don’t be stupid and say something like, ‘NAW, my wife care’s about me too much to give anything up without a fight to the death!’

        Well, okay, if you say so. But that’s okay, because then YOU will change your Moron Molon Labe attitude reeeeeal fast when they turn that ‘care’ for each other and the family around to where you will quickly cave and go out there and fetch your shit like the trained dog you will become. Sorry for the reality check. I know it kills a lot of those who still ‘believe’ that “It can’t happen in America” But for serious Freedom people who need the truth, there it is.

        Remember the old wise saying for wise-asses. ” three can keep a secret, only if two are dead’.

        • Women, at least 95% of them, are not to be trusted. Not even with their right to vote. Evolution is, indeed, a thing and traits such as loyalty, teamwork, an understanding of and dedication to fundamental principles, nor even, it seems, the backing up of a vehicle are in their make-up. Over the aeons different necessities, different requirements, different abilities and how to go about getting what they need or desire have sent us down different paths. We ignore that at our species peril.

    • That awkward moment the wife has more pistols on her permit than the husband….well some things are easier to live with than others.

      • That is so sad that you have to list your guns on your “permit” in order to possess and or carry them…my CWP only states that I am authorized to carry concealed…revolver, pistol or bayonet…it doesn’t matter.

        Even though MT has a version of permitless carry, I still plan on renewing every four years for the convenience when purchasing a new firearm or when traveling out of State (ya never know when I might want to travel through one of the Progressivestan States).

        • See what happens when the court gets around to us, but yes having a portable gun registry as well as having to get each pistol purchase approved (and new card printed) sucks. Wouldn’t be as bad if NY had reciprocity with anyone else as it is just Virginia and anyone who has constitutional carry for out of state but that gets tricky if you don’t have a permit.

        • Imagine yourself waking up in Canada as I did so many years ago and being flat out denied, by the threat of incarceration (and thus, ultimately, death if one should take exception to their ‘laws’ by actually defending what is surely humankinds most fundamental of rights) the ability to effectively protect yourself, not to mention your loved ones. This by the very group of people who claim (but not by oath nor by contract) to be there to protect you and, for all the plainly obvious reasons, cannot possibly ever make good on that claim. It is nothing short of mafia racketeering put in place by a group of individuals, a gang if you will, so as to be at a physical and tactical advantage over those for whom they provide this ‘service’ while extorting money from same for the ‘administration’ of our so called Firearms Act, where even a paper offense can mean jail time. We are paying them to do this to us. We are literally supplying them with the guns that they aim at us, the most law abiding and ‘vetted’ individuals in the country, in the name of Public Safetyโ„ข. All this effort over all these decades, all these billions and billions of dollars extorted from us to maintain their tactical superiority over us, and we still have gangs of violent criminals freely roaming the streets. Maybe we should sign yet another petition…

        • Dan @ TTAG; why is every third comment made “under moderation” ?? If you value your comment section, and you should, why impose this random yet near constant annoyance on us? it’s obviously not based on content, or key words .

        • @SAFE

          Holy Frijoles!

          Do you have to pay for each new card as a firearm is added?

          Does the State add expansion cards as you run out of room on the original or do they just go to a smaller font?

          I am imagining a serious firearm collector carrying the equivalent of a deck of cards whenever he is out and about with a concealed firearm…that is some stupid, inconvenient, harassing shituff being played by NY State.

          PS: decided that I really do not have a need to visit or travel through a totalitarian State.

        • Not sure for every county but seems to be $3 and yes new card every time and I do know one guy with 2 cards. In short never support ANY restrictions of gun rights ever.

        • @SAFE

          Thank you for edumacating me today on the hoops you have to jump through in your neck of NY. My job brought me to Montana 25 years ago…the mountains, weather, rivers and (mostly) gun-friendly laws kept me here when I retired.

        • Montana; if you’re interested in a comment from slightly north of your home state, check back later as it’s “awaiting moderation”. Again. Still. Cheers.

        • That one is so far left that he would have to turn right to ride off into the sunset. So tired of the trolls that infest TTAG.

        • Rusty….like any scavengers, they only come around where they are fed.

          Most shit-eaters quit coming if no one throws them crumbs.

        • it’s getting out of hand. TTAG won’t ‘ban’ anyone and for good reason but there should be a line drawn when a right is abused. Instead every third comment we make gets sent to a holding cell while the bag of festering trash sits in TTAGs living room, getting more foul by the day. And I don’t mean that assclown dacian, per say, but he is almost undoubtedly also the one making all those other comments. You know the ones I mean, and so should Dan Zimmerman. Take out the trash or people will stop visiting. And for the love of whatever, stop monitoring us like Big Brother. It’s not a good look.

        • I recall something about a scandal back in 2019…something about someone on the inside (admin) of TTAG causing problems. That really caused a ruckus for a few months.

    • I am well beyond purchasing another firearm for my spouse in order to “grease the skids” to purchase another firearm.

      Let’s just say that my only firearm purchase in the last 12 months was a super-deal on a single-action revolver which I purchased with the explicit intention of gifting to a cousin, niece, or nephew.

      • Kudos for gifting a SA revolver. I don’t think I would have it in me to give one of those up.

        A second piece of advice would be separate bank accounts. She has her money, you have yours. Just make sure you pay the lion’s share of the bills and whatever discretionary funds you have left are none of her business. As are how she spends her discretionary funds. Seriously, the key to marital bliss is separate bank accounts.

        • She has a savings account in her name, I have a checking account for my “allowance” in my name. Peace prevails.

        • We have a guns account and a jewels account. As long as roughly equal amounts go into each, it works. I spent some of the jewels money on a fancy birderโ€™s camera for her, because she likes to take photos of birds at the feeders, and I actually got two points for doing that. This past Christmas, I got her a new smartphone with a whiz-bang camera, and would have gotten two points for that also except the dude at the phone store messed up the order and switched our plan all around. Lost two points for the headache, so it was a wash from that standpoint, but I could still fall back on the guns/jewels balance.

  1. My wife still has find memories of going into Armadillo Arms to buy me a Smith and Wesson 3913 as a present for my 30th birthday. Since she was eight months pregnant, she couldn’t resist the temptation to tell the proprietor that it was for the bastard that got her in that condition.

    Years later, my wife bought me a Caspian Arms 1911 in stainless steel with compensator. The proprietor asked her to marry him.

    Of course another fond memory is when Al’s “hardware store” called to tell me that the new rifle that I’d ordered was in. My wife responded excitedly, “you mean his Barrett is in!”

    • Of course the above โฌ†๏ธ post is stupid. But when you consider that โ€˜Rider/Shooterโ€™ is a mincing fancy man who has never had (nor does he want) the pleasures of a woman, itโ€™s still stupid.

      • And there he/it is, here to stink up the room. Again. Still. That’s quite a telling fixation you have on that whole “never had the pleasures of a woman” thing. Is it an age issue, or are you just unskilled? You know, nameless festering troll entity, it could be how you conduct yourself. I mean, demonstrating to the world how reduntantly boring you are ain’t a good look. Something to consider.

  2. I’m tired of being nice . And playing games .
    Take your happy and shove it up your ass.
    You ccksuckers .gov done sold us out to a foreign government . That’s TREASON.
    You want to disarm America ? Start with me first.. .

  3. Iโ€™m so lazy I just copied this whole comment:

    If you enjoy camping/hunting/fishing/etc and haven’t read any Pat McManus books you are missing out in life. One of the funniest chapters is about all the methods used to sneak new firearms into his house without his wife knowing.

    One of the funnier methods is so attach a wire to the barrel and stock. When she asks, tell her that it’s a decoration that you want to hang in the house. Of course she won’t want it visible, so you take it down stairs out of sight and put it in your gun safe.

    Here’s a quote to explain all the new guns if she looks in the safe.

    “It is a well known fact that nice rifles, such as 03s, when left in close proximity, such as a gun cabinet or safe, will somehow multiply. The offspring will look similiar, but not identical, to the parents.

    This is not conjecture, it is fact, and my wife can bear witness. I will occasionally open one of the cabinets, and to my amazement find a new rifle. She has witnessed this on many occasions.

    So, if this happens to you, or your wife gets upset at the appearance of a new rifle, just remind her that this is nothing more than nature at work, and nothing that does not happen to teenagers all the time.”

    • Cooter E Lee,

      It is a well known fact that nice rifles, such as 03s, when left in close proximity, such as a gun cabinet or safe, will somehow multiply. The offspring will look similiar, but not identical, to the parents.

      That made me laugh out loud!

      Thank you: I needed that today.

    • +1 on Pat McManus.

      As for guns multiplying, I can vouch for that scenario. My wife is a banker and handles our checking and credit card accounts. However, a quarter of my business receipts are in cash, and Iโ€™m not above taking a cash draw for a USPS money order for a gunbroker purchase, as long as I set some aside for the jewels account also. Now and then I canโ€™t get around using the card, so Iโ€™ll deposit cash into the checking to cover it. She gives me a look when I give her the deposit slip, but at least the charge is covered and she knows sheโ€™ll be getting something soon. ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š We have a significant chunk of the basement set aside for shoeboxes.

    • Cooter, Pat McManus. Wow! Haven’t heard that name in a long time. Want to read something funny? Read his article on the bicycle. Don’t remember the name, but published in Field&Stream magazine. Laughed until I cried.

    • McManus wrote some of the funniest short stories I’ve ever read, got 3-4 of his books of them. My youngest son 26 found them in about 4th grade and decided he had to read everything the man ever wrote.

  4. After 29 years I say nothing about the purses that show up and she says nothing about the guns that do. One of us is getting a real windfall one day. Just a couple of Louis’ and a Chanel or 2 from her safe would make a very good gun year for me. I don’t get it but I don’t argue with it either. It’s her only “vice”.

  5. Had several of my guns longer than I’ve had my wife. Of course, she knew I am a gun person before we married. Fact is, she encouraged me to spend the COVID checks on guns and ammo.
    My wife was a shooter, gun person when we met, and has enjoyed shooting many of the guns I have in the safe. And, she is just as good a shot with a handgun as I am.
    How I got lucky, and how she puts up with my grouchy ass I’ll never know. She likes guns, isn’t interested in purses, shoes or fancy clothes, and wanted to go out here on the homestead as badly as I did.

  6. With my husband itโ€™s a need to know and he doesnโ€™t need to know
    I used PetSitting Business funds for post tax income, my handgun collection

    He plays Golf and I encourage his hobby
    A good marriage is based on โ€œme timeโ€
