    I need help! I have a problem.

    I promised my wife my gun purchases would stop for an extended time and admitted to having a problem I still get on GunBroker and other sites just to look Well yesterday I found a new, recent production, NIB SAA P1840 45, 4-3/4", for the "Buy it Now" price of $1749. I had to look twice and confirm it and couldn't believe it hadn't been snatched up yet. People were bidding on it and it had 10 bids already. So.....you guessed it, time to try and hide this from the wife for awhile.

    You know that if you try and hide the purchase, she will eventually find out and be even more pi$$ed.
    I would consider adding something sparkly to the dinner and roses plan.

    You could do what I did once (only works once), i told the wife that I accidently bought a gun on gunbroker! Yep, I bid on it and thought I would get outbid, but no one else bid and I won it by accident.

    This reminds me of when I was married,I came home w/another colt & my wife said "u didn't NEED another gun" & I said "no but I WANTED it then I told her I didn't buy it but had traded for it" & she said OK that's different.About a week later she was going thru the clothes getting ready to do the laundry & found the receipt in my shirt pocket showing that I bought it & that's when s**t hit the fan.
