I just hide the box. Wife just thinks it’s just another gun.
I'll hold my new gun in the car until my wife is in the shower.
Then I make a quick run to bring the new one in!

For god's sake man put your pants on. And buy your wife some diamonds.
I don't know much but at least I know that much.
NEVER lie to the spouse. NEVER! Dishonesty only leads to more dishonesty, which leads to very expensive endings. just tell the truth from the start. Tis better to ask forgiveness than permission. I always just say "Oh lookey! Ima gonna get this" as she looks at whatever it is, rolls her eyes and says "Thats nice". Guess I'm lucky. My wife knows I work hard for what I have, and knows the bills always get paid first, so never complains about my toys.
They do like diamonds, that's for sure........
I'm out of the market for a while. I put $2K in my mouth last week.
It may be a drought here until the fiduciary arrangement can recover somewhat.
Y'all will recall that my ordnance budget is already gone through 2025, so.........
What do you call it? Borrowed time? Or just maybe rented?
I'm far from done; only a little backed up.
And I don't have to deal with any wimmin in terms of firearms.
I do like puttin' nice trinkets on 'em, tho'.
It's a fact: Jewelry & flowers are pretty much a sure thing.
Wife & I been married for 44 or 45 years (I'd have to wake her up and ask and that doesn't seem a good idea) but about 20 years ago I bought a new Omega watch. When she found out I what I paid for a watch she went ballistic. We went around screaming at each other for a week. She insisted I return it. I insisted I made the money and was going to keep it. Finally at the dinner table with her still yelling at me I surrendered. I said I would take it back the next morning - if she took back her jewelry. We haven't argued since about what toys we consider important or how much it cost.
After you pass a few hundred guns she won't even know the difference.
This all started with one gun!

"Don't ask, don't tell." She doesn't ask and I don't tell. Simple but it works for us.
