So last week I got my 9130 and love it and this week I see aim is selling enfields for $109 so I had to beg my wife to let me order another gun in less then two weeks on top of 3 last month. So the deal that was struck no more guns till august 1st if I order the 303 well Ive alwas wanted one so I think its a good deal, but the queston is have any of you guys ever had to consent to these things or just me? by the way my wife is great i relly do spend alot of money on guns guitars and hunting and she hardly ever complains so I figure ive done pretty well.

In my house it's quid pro quo. I buy a $800. rifle, she gets $800. worth of jewelry or whatever she wants to spend that money on. All of my guns cost me double what everyone else pays. Of course the same can be said about her jewelry.

Just tell your wife that a C&R habit is way cheaper than strippers!


My wife has thus far been tolerant of my firearm collection, but I think she's going to start getting upset when I explain that we need a third safe...

Yeah, strippers + married men equals hospital bills when caught.

You've lost your mind. To agree to a six month moratorium on gun purchases just so you can buy a $110 Enfield is NUTS! Where are your priorities, man? What happens if you run across something REALLY nice next month? I can see it now. You stop into a pawn shop and there's sweet 1903a3 for $150. What do you say? I'd like to buy that but my wife will get mad? I don't think so. Don't make promises you can't keep. The Enfield ain't worth tying your hands over.

Get the Enfield now while you still can. Then be REALLY appreciative. If your wife is at all tolerant, then you can count yourself as lucky. Hey, 3-4 guns per year ain't bad. Don't worry about what you may "pass up" in the future, these surplus guns will be around for a while - make sure that your wife will, too.

my fiancee isn't as gun appreciateive as I am. I promised her I would never purchase a handgun if I already had a handgun with the same caliber in my collection. Hell, that alone leaves me my 3 carry pieces and a whole load of gun varities. Besides, you can ALWAYS barter new deals later, but you can't go back in time and get something you missed. I am sure if you buttered her up, bought her a nice dress and matching shoes, took her out to her favorite restuarant, took her to a movie she wants to see or something like that; you know recreate the dating days for her, I am sure she would melt and let you slide just once and get another one before your 6 months are up.

just play your cards the best you can

well Im sure that if the deal is to good then shell probably be okay with it and my plan I think is to save a bunch of money and go on a C@R shopping spree august 1 hey I may even take the day of also this will give me time to get some new reloading dies and start loading the k31's and 7 mm mausers that are feeling lonely in the gun safe and get ready for hunting season and finish building my custum telecaster. Also the deal was that I coudnt buy any guns so maybe if she buys me one. Our anniversary is coming and she did by me a k31 for my birthday so there could be a some new family members to the gun safe's anyway

I say buying guns are an investment. I too have to pay double for my guns. Whatever I spend, she will spend.
