Please stop talking about rifles and different calibers

I just recently picked up a new lever gun. My plan is to go shooting when I pick it up. I will put it in my double case, then sneak it in. My wife will never know I picked up a new rifle. She'll just think I'm returning from the range. Yeah. I've got it too CVC. You know you've got it when you make crazy plans like that. I will be testing my patience in reloading this winter, and I all of sudden have this bad habit of looking at ATV ads.

Evil! You are not alone when it comes to sneaking in guns and other toys. Good thing they don't pay attention to our hobbies.

I would love for the wife to get into shooting but something keeps telling me that the least amount of firearm knowledge she has the better off I am at conning my way into more firearms on a "need" basis. Evil!

My wife thought she needed a hunting license to get into shooting. I had to reexplain the Bill of Rights to her. I tried to get her into it, but the last time she shot a rifle she caught it in the eye with the scope. I did get her into fishing this summer though. I have to admit, we had some really good times. One thing I noticed was that once she was involved, her shopping habits kicked in. New fising gear. I almost wonder if getting her involved in shooting would equal cool new shooting gear. Think

It's like playing golf with your girlfriend or wife. You do it alone with no witnesses and never tell anyone about the experience. Certainly don't make a habit of it. With regards to wives acquiring hunting knowledge, I'm still up in the air on this one, but I'm pretty sure it's a bad idea. I've definitely pulled the, "Oh, this is the same gun I was cleaning last night." scam. If she knows what she's looking at and how much you've spent on it, there will certainly be hell to pay. Also, never allow her to store her silver or jewelry in your gun safe. She'll be obliged to learn the combination, and in turn, will notice changes in gun stock etc. Bad deal all around. Trust me, I know from first hand experience.

If she persists in wanting to go to the range or on the hunting trip etc., take her to the range, give her your 338 win mag, 416 rigby, or even a 300 weatherby, and let her shoot. The coon eye she'll have to wear to work for a week might make you look like a wife beater, but she'll never heckle you on the range again.

That part about the safe is too good. Laugh
