I love my wife. :D

At the last WAC gunshow I found out that a local gunstore was holding a special event to celebrate their newly expanded facilities. A Springfield Armory rep was going to be there and there would be a raffle, BBQ, demos and of course the obligatory sale. Well, I was going to go and my dear wife was eager to come along. As we had relegated my old XD-9 to a home defense role in a lockbox she said I could get a replacement if the cost was not too much. Well, I got a pretty good deal. My new XD-9 service comes with a nice cut foam case, 3 sixteen round mags, XD-Gear holster and a box of Gold Saber defense ammo for $459. Not a bad haul.

But while we are looking the wife sees a CZ-52 in a case and asks to see it. It comes with a holster too. Ching another sale. While she is filling out the paperwork I ask to see a romanian SVD rifle that is on the wall. I just wnated to heft it for once in my life. The wife sees me looking and says, "Dear, why don't you get that too." So off I go to fill more paperwork. The SVD rifle came with sling, 2 mags, magpouch, the soviet milspec SVD scope, scope cover, hard case and because I am such a nice guy 2 boxes of 7.62x54R ammo..

Needless to say we left as soon as the BATF said proceed lest we spent more money. Came home with 3 nw firearms for our collection. This evening was spent ordering assorted sov bloc ammo for our new firearms on the internet. Now I am going to go and clean the new XD for testfiring tomorrow.

I love my wife :D.

You lucky, lucky man.

My wife was upset when I got a new shotgun for CHRISTMAS!!

She was convinced I would spend a lot of money on it for mods. (She's right you know.)

Gunner, I am afraid to tell you that this thread is useless without pictures... and unlike the ODB's around here, I am not referring to your wife...

LMAO Everything women do BEFORE marriage is the trap. Once married, you're stuck or something like that.

My gf doesn't care about me wanting to grow my collection... but she says that DOWN THE ROAD, I can't scare my daughters bfs by having a get together with some friends and cleaning ALL the firearms during the boys visits. If the guns need cleaning, I'm going to clean them. :roll:

Well, it helps if your wife likes shooting too, mine does. The reason we were out shopping in the first place was because she trusts my XD-9 and can shoot it well enough that we decided to change it's role to a home defense gun. She felt guilty at me giving my primary carry away to such a role so we went to get me a replacement. The SVD and the CZ-52 were pure impulse buys.. I did pick up a new carry gun though. :)

KDOG, she is not trying to butter me up, she just appreciates the fact that I run the house, cook, clean and generaly let her do her work and stuff without interference. We have been married for 11 1/2 years now and dated/cohabitated for another 7 before that. She hates jewelry and other girly stuff as she is a die hard dweeb. If I let her sit in front to the TV with Sci-Fi channel and then let her play on the computer she is happy.

Jsmith15, it is because of our shooting that I had to order 13K rounds of 9mm a month ago. I hope it lasts until the end of the year. Not likely though.

Oldmantod, I will try to get pictures and post some real fien gun porn for you guys but I need to figure out this hosting thing first.

It's either a trap, or she's hiding something(like maybe her mother is moving in), or you might want to check for pods :shock: .

Or your just a lucky guy :D
