    Here's my secret... I own so many guns that my wife can't tell if I get a new one. This has worked well for me for the past 44 years.

    Or, you could do like my (now deceased) brother in law and have a friend call the house and ask for "Ken". The wife says, "Ken is not here, he went to the gun club". The friend then says "I just wanted to congratulate him on winning the raffle for the xxxxx rifle at the club. "Ken" walks into the house a bit later and the wife is all excited for him and asks to see his new rifle. As far as I know, the wife never found out about "the sting". Another thing that you can do (also only works once) is to wrap up the new gun and mix it in with other presents under the tree marked "To: John From: Santa. Eventually, that present will be handed out (with no one knowing what it is) to be opened. When opened, the proud owner says "Look dear, Santa wanted me to have this new Baretta (or whatever) pistol! Then you will get "the look" with "ok, you got away with that this time but don't try it again" muttered under her breath. Sometimes you just have to be creative!

    Could be worse...my dad’s an FFL and consequently I funnel 99% of my purchases through him. We were visiting him around the holidays and my wife was going on about the $4,000.00 adjustable mattress we just “had” to have. I kept shooting it down and then my dad chimes in, “Well I was adding up all your gun purchases for this year and you could have bought one of those mattresses for every room in yall’s house!” Thanks Old Man! The new mattress is getting delivered tomorrow...

    We've been married 50 years last December. I just say, "But it was on sale!".

    She is a sucker for buying stuff she or we don't need just because it was on sale.

    I've had wives before who thought what I earned was theirs to decide what I needed. They were very expensive mistakes at the end of those relationships. However for the past 12 years the current wife thinks I deserve to buy whatever I want and she enjoys me being happy having anything I want from Rolex's to Corvette's and yes to all the guns I can stuff into my safe. I found the perfect woman for me to have and to cherish the rest of my life. She says that since I suffered so much in all the previous marriages, I deserve to enjoy a blessed life now.... What an Angel the Lord has blessed me with. I also give this Angel the best I can.

    That reminds me soooo much of an old routine by the comic Gallagher...he really made you laugh at such observations of the human condition.

    Sounds like my experience...my first wife understood "I need" but had no conception of "I want". Wife 2.0 simply says "if you want it go ahead and get it." Life is much better now...I'm so thankful I have this wonderful woman in my life and the happiness she's given me.

    Ha-ha! A wise and experienced man...

    Skeeter who wrote a rather humorous tutorial on this very subject, sneaking long guns in past the wife's radar in a roll of carpet, smuthering her with small gifts and taking her out...just in case, hiding guns around the house, and later claiming, "That's been here for years." I learned a lot from "Skeet" and dearly miss his writing style.
