You ever have your wife get mad over an expensive gun purchase?

I'm starting to feel the fire from one, but I done good. $537 for an IOR Valdada 1.1-4x scope for the new girl gun (the one I started putting together for my wife and she won't shoot).

She's still mad, but I am friggin ectatic about how I won this thing (on eBay) for almost $200 off normal price.


So I put it to the Washington ARFCOM group... should I feel bad for not telling her?


P.S. - with any luck it'll be here in time for the LCR

As long as you did not take any food from the kids mouth's, or are skipping out on a bill that needs to be taken care of...

I would say you did well.

Well, in a twisted sort of way I might call it partially your fault since you gave me the "look on eBay" idea...

I got that look when I brought home a LNIB Colt Govt .380 pocket lite that I bought from a local cop for $250. I told her tuff stuff and in the end paid more than that little gun was ever worth.

I keep a separate checking account for my toys and my wife doesn't have the combination to the gun safe. All she knows is that all of my guns are black so if I bring a new one home and it's black then she doesn't know the difference!

Is it in bad taste that I use recent crime events for reasons to buy new toys?

At least this time she bought the whole...I need a gun that shares magazines and ammo as my AR for redundancy...

I remember when Mrs.Gibby found a receipt for a Bushmaster.

Here's what it ended up looking like on the rifle.


It was worth being bitched at...

a WECSOG instructor helped me put it on, too bad all he had was a crooked vise mounted on his kitchen counter. I'm kinda surprised he didn't find a way to mount it backwards.

Yer lucky I had a action block copy of Guns and Ammo to keep it from getting all scratched up.

Here's one that you can use, but you can only use it ONCE.

"Honey, look what I won in raffle!!! I never won anything in my life and I buy this raffle ticket at the NRA fundraiser and, holy shit, I can't believe I'm this lucky. Let's buy a lottery ticket before it wears off!"

It worked once for me many years ago.
