I see a lot of threads about guys coming home with a new gun and needing advice about how to hide the purchase from the wife, or other guys that get caught with an AR that the wife didnt know about and are now in the dog house.....Im sure a bunch are just posted in jest....but I also know some guys wives are a complete pain in the ass about this kinda thing.

I am lucky....my wife is cool with me buying whatever it is I want so long as it doesnt affect our long term financial goals. I recently picked up a new G22 and my plan was to trade my S&W in the same caliber for it....and she actually begged me not to trade my S&W in because she new I liked it, and told me to just buy the G22 outright. This coming from a girl that doesnt shoot, doesnt really like guns....and until she met me, had never even seen a gun.

So...whats your story?

She use too.  Divorce is expensive, but worth it sometimes.

My wife dosnt complain too much so long as it doesnt break the bank and all other bills are in order.
So, I really cant complain, my wife understands I like my guns and thats how it will be so we "comprimise". Long as all other bills are in order its Katie bar the door, I'm gun shoppin.

Its not so much that I need my wife's permission in that we agreed years ago when it came to large purchases, anything over a couple hundred bucks we'd discuss it with each other.

My wife is the most undertanding woman I know.  I thought I had alot of cool stuff before I met her.  But I was also living paycheck to paycheck.  

With her handling the finances, we have a house, 3 cars, and I have 2 motorcycles.  

She is very supportive of my hobbies only wishing they weren't so expensive.  As an example, we went to a gun show yesterday.  Was only going to pick up some ammo, came home with ammo and a complete lower.  She got me an HK USP Tactical for Xmas.  

So she's not controlling or anything like that, just wants to make sure we have the necesitees first and something for retirement....
