Tell her Sorry but it is a thumbprint timelock. You can't open it. [:D]

Just tell her you would spare no expense to protect you most precious and beloved object, your lovely wife.

Tell her that the door is really really heavy, and sometimes it gets stuck, You wouldn't want her to get hurt trying to open it would you? that's also where you hide all those nice things you got her. [^]

No one knows the combo to my safe and when the wife asks if it is full I say.........................."Heck no honey......there's lots of room for your jewelry" I try not to open it when she is around!

guys this topic comes up every so often. what a bunch of pussies!! "oh no my spouse found out i have X amount of guns". if the bills are paid, there is food on the table and you are employed who cares? why do you hide how many guns you have to your spouse? if for some reason you were to drop dead, what the hell would she know about value of the guns? not to mention all those mags and ammo you have stashed. if you are in a relationship where keeping secret the number of guns you have is a must, time to get out of it. and please no excuses like "well we have the kids to think about" i have been with my spouse for almost 28yrs. and she knows not only how many guns i have but where to look for current market value, as well as who to contact in case i were to keel over. just in case she had to sell any guns for the money as needed. that is of course after she and the kid pick out the ones they want for themselves. so hiding how many guns you have may seem like a good idea, but remember the story of the guy who picked up a whole gun collection for next to nothing, because the widow had no idea what they were worth and just "wanted them out of the house!!!!" that someone may be your spouse.

You guys are pathetic![V] I tell my girlfriend whenever I buy a new gun. I tell her how to chamber a round, how to clean it. I tell her the history of it. How much I paid and how much it's worth. If your wives felt more involved in your addiction they might actually support you..... And even ENCOURAGE you to get another gun.

I am in the same situation, however my safe is full (though I have room for handguns..[;)] ) My wife [dracula] wants me to take "inventory" of it..but (curiously) doesn't want to know how many I have..all she says is that I have "too many".

I don't let Mrs mmk into my play area,nor is it any of her business as to what I spend my money on.well i guess it would be if i was spending it out whoring.but as i'm not,as long as i make sure all the bills are paid first.it shouldn't matter to her.mmk

Aw, hell, guys - what's the big deal? My wife knows my inventory as well as I do, knows where I keep everything, and knows how to use it all. Hell, she knows what I buy and when I buy it, and we are both OK with that. Of course, she is fully qualified on all of my firearms! FFZ
Link Posted: 7/23/2001 11:41:35 PM EDT
My wife allows ms to buy anything and everything I want. She even insists I buy things we really can't afford. My favorite dealer is no help either,because anytime my wife accompanies me into the shop, something ends up on layaway. I come out of the bathroom, and she's fondling an MP5KPDW saying "we don't have one of these,do we?" Damn, we ain't got 8Gs to get one, either! By the way, I love her dearly, and she has her own set of keys to the safes You guys really should feel sorry for me.

Frank, I used the 'its my brothers' one before. That works UNTIL HE COMES OVER FOR DINNER. Man, if you don't have your stories straight before dinner YOU ARE DEAD MEAT!

inuhbadnayburhood - If you don't trust her, DON'T GET MARRIED TO HER! That crack about 'someone better' would have done it for me, and should have sent you running. If you marry her, I'll give you 5 years at most. If you wives/GFs don't tolerate your hobby, then you are hooked up with the wrong woman.

I used to have to worry about this also. But, when you do get that fourth or fifth, the rest just start to blend in. My wife never noticed until it was too late. I don't have a safe(I know, please don't flame me), mine are all in glass cases(3). It's pretty obvious when a new one appears! But!, If there are enough in there, they camouflage the new ones! All this said, my wife told me exactly how many I had during a conversation with some friends the other day. I do like the idea of a safe though, better camo for new guns. guns762

When my future wife and I were dating....she got a look at my weapons collection. She asked what seige are you preparing for? Later on I purchased a .40 S&W for her and we spent time at the range. She is pretty good with that .40 and a 45ACP. After we were married she has assisted with several purchases....after I bought my DCM she remarked...do they make one of those I would like? I said you bet, she now has a shorty AR. And of course we had to purchase additional 20 & 30 round mags and ammo for "our" ARs. Life is good!!
Link Posted: 7/24/2001 11:53:28 AM EDT
I just started dating this girl. ABout two weeks ago the handgun topic came up. Some of the guys at her office suggested she get a handgun since she lives alone. Having gone through this before with other girls, I responded that I have a few guns (little lie) that my father gave me (another little lie). I suggested that we could go shooting if she was interested and then changed the subject. I have found that if you tell them you own several (14 or 15) guns including evil assault rifles during the first dates that it's not a good thing.
Link Posted: 7/24/2001 12:53:45 PM EDT
Try these: "No, it's not a new gun. I upgraded the old gun with a few cheap parts...." "They're about to ban this one and if I didn't buy it now...." "Dear God! That's like 50% off!" Actually, my g/f has bought two guns for me before because we were able to turn them around and make $ on the deal. She really does not seem to care what I have as long as bills are paid and food is in the house. I guess I am lucky. But then again, you ought to see the stuff she buys for herself. We're talking a full-on sewing fanatic with multiple machines and bales of silk fabric (very expensive).

All the cynical attitudes concerning being open with your wives/girls. I pity the fool (in your best Mr. T voice) that can't trust his lady with information about his collection. What does that say about the relationship? I know, some women are 'unpredictable'. Don't marry her if she is. If you find out she is after the fact do some serious 'attitude modification' or get the hell out. My wife just smiled, shook her head and said 'boys and their toys' after my last acquisition. She's a keeper. CB

Not really my business, but since you shared... ... if you don't trust her after [b]two years[/b], don't you think it's time to move on? Do you still think that trust can be built after all this time?
