Know the combination to your gun safe?

I'll be first.


And I've been married longer than most of you here.

You should make this a poll.

It's a key ....... and no.

no she don't but i don't have a safe anymore or anything to go in it
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 11:03:54 PM EST
Yes, but after 23 years together they are her's as well.
She has never given me reason to distrust her, and is one of the few I trust to always watch my 6.
Hell, she has better combat awareness than most of my co workers.

Yep. She sure does, cause some of her guns are in there too.


Ask her to open it though.
Link Posted: 9/4/2004 11:21:59 PM EST
I thought I was the only one all along.

I never even allowed her to share my savings. Then again, I didn't mind that she kept her own also (mostly because I wouldn't share my account with her money)

She has her own.....and no I dont know the combo to it!

Hell yes! If I am not home and she needs them (God Forbid) I'd want her to defend herself! If I didn't trust her I wouldn't have married her.

+1, reading some of the posts here I wonder why some of you guys ever got married.

Yes, just don't ask me to open it.
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 2:22:40 AM EST
No, I wear the pants in the family!
(She does have a copy of the key to the safe )
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 2:37:41 AM EST
Wife passed. If she were still here she would have the combination. My two adult sons have a
combination that will get them the combinations. It's only guns and money, they can be replaced!
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 2:51:43 AM EST
Nope. She likes me to have what I want and vise verso !
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 2:53:12 AM EST
Yes. She ain't the best shooter - but she could give the 17yo daughter access if it was needed.
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 2:53:17 AM EST
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 4:28:33 AM EST
Yep. She helped pay for them why shouldn't she be able to get to them? PS I clean the guns, she has to clean the dishes. (I got the better deal but don't tell her !)
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 4:30:05 AM EST
Single but I wouldnt give it to her is I was married.

Yes. I want her to be able to access a gun if needed. She refuses to know the combo for the small handgun safe because thats used for my duty weapons ( her rationale, I don't argue with her on that ), but she can access the long guns in the wall safe in the closet.
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 4:44:44 AM EST
Not enough options - I told her the combination several times but she can't remember it.

Hell No! She has a spare key for my Corvette ('92 Roadster, green and mean) and lords over her "marital property" ownership of everything I've worked my ass off for the past 30+ years. She took all the guns once and hid them on me, still have 2 SW M39's MIA. If you detect some serious trust issues here, you're 100% right. She's a manic-depressive type. I'm depressed from living with her. She'd take me to the cleaners (including the guns for sure!) if I left and I don't know if I'd be any better off in the end. I keep one gun (Ruger KP90 .45, Magna-ported) in a convenient location for "house use". The un-written rule around here seems to be that, as bad as the arguements get, the guns (and knives) are off-limits. BTW, you might ask another question: does you wife know how many guns you REALLY have? Enough for my ranting here. You guys with wives/GF's that are into guns, etc. are damn fortunate. The couple that shoots together, stays together.

Yes she does, I trust her with my life.

This guy trusted his wife

I always leave a loaded handgun out of the safe. So, she's not defenseless.
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 6:20:21 AM EST
No, and never will.
Not a trust issue, just a safety one.

No one gets to my guns except me.
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 6:22:22 AM EST
Yes. In my home, we shared EVERYTHING, as we should.

However, I DID retain the MASTER combination, so I could lock her out in an instant, and not vice-versa.

Still, I suppose the fact I did that portended the impending divorce we are now going through. From now on, NO ONE will know the combo. Period.

I keep my stuff locked up and keep one key on me and a spare hidden VERY WELL. I move the spare once in a while just to make sure.

Link Posted: 9/5/2004 6:29:32 AM EST
No way. Even after almost 13 years of marriage, there are just some things that are better off now known....

Link Posted: 9/5/2004 6:30:11 AM EST
NO! And now I feel more manly!

Again, +1

SIG P228 9mm. She's better with it than I am. And that's saying something!

I leave her gun out for her if I go anywhere and she's left home.

Mona and i take the till death do you part thing pretty serious. She has offered to kill me several times

As far as i am concerened my guns are tools. She is home alone most of the time and i want her to have access to the right tool for job should she need it. If shit happens and she divorced me and sold my guns, sure i'd be pissed but they can be replaced. Her life can not.


Voice of reason!

Amen, TBS. I've given serious thought to replacing my S&G dial with an electronic lock. Either that, or drill drill drill the wife on how to open the damn thing.

You have SOLD a firearm.

I think you are stressed out and need some quiet time to think about your proper course of action before you make further errors in judgement
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 9:47:30 AM EST
As rarely as I get pie, no big deal...

No she does not know it and is pissed.

Link Posted: 9/5/2004 9:49:27 AM EST
Yep. Been married 23 years and totally trust her. Hell, she bought my AR50 as a retirement present along with paying a chunk on about 20 other guns. No reason for her not to know it..
Link Posted: 9/5/2004 9:59:55 AM EST
Some of the stuff in the safe is hers. She knows there is a card with the combo on it that came with the safe. If she needs it. I put the card somewhere for safe keeping. Where I put it I have no clue.

If I couldn't TRUST someone , why the HELL would I marry them ????

And if after marrying them I realized I couldn't trust them, I'd get a divorce.
