Yesterday evening, when the neighbors were closing up after their Garage Sale, he walked over and handed me a Gun Rack he had made in shop class as a kid. I immediatly said to him "Dang, now I will have to go buy a couple more Handis to fill this rack". I turned around to find my wife standing behind me and yep, you guessed it, I got "THE LOOK".
PRICELESS moments like that are what keeps life interesting!

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY EVERYONE

The biggest mistake I made was having the wife help me take a picture of my NEFs and post it one time :x . They don't forget either :? .

well of all people i thought a mature man like you paul would know better. i just make sure i never take more then three out at the same time and since handis look the same she don't catch me.


cookieman : a good way to counter this is to only tell your wife when you sell a gun and not when you buy one. its worked for me.

A house full of guns is better than a house full of wife.

Hey guys. Some of you are looking at it all wrong. Mr. Frosty touched on it. You have to get them into something like purses or shoes. They need a matching ensemble for each occasion. They know what your trying to do, but they can't resist a new package. And, it helps to go with them occasionally to offer support. Sometimes we have to sacrifice a little to get a lot. Now, if I can only get the wife to stop buying purses that cost more than my Handi's. HaHaHaHa.

Kidding aside. It will be 26 yrs in July for the little lady and I and she often goes with me to the gun shows and shops. Heck, in the past year she has bought me three guns herself. And yes, I do go to the purse shop. Like handirifle said, "I wouldn't have it any other way". She enjoys the excitment I get from buying a new rifle as much as I do watching her buy the "perfect" purse or shoes.

I get the look frequently. Now my daughter does it too. Still doesn't work.
My daughter does it to me too...do you think they learn that from mother, or is it a natural thing?

I got one wife too, and one son, and one daughter...and they are all keepers. I could use a few more guns though!

Happy father's day everyone.

I get that look when I head into the office and bring up GBO becaus she knows that this board makes me want more guns. At least my passion is for cheap guns. Good thing for her I'm not into classic english doubles.

Well, since some of you brought it up, it's been 31 years for my wife and I. I wouldn't trade one minute of it for another Handi. I would miss THE LOOK if it wasn't there anymore. This time it was only in fun. I THINK!

Wife

38 years with mine, the usual comment when I mention a firearm I am thinking about, is "Why don't you get it now?"
Oh well, some of us check em out BEFORE we marry em!
:D

The Look

When budgeting for your next Handi remember to allow for retaliatory spousal spending!!!!!!!

Heck, encourage retaliatory spending because you both will lose track of just who it is that is retaliating. In this way you will be able to maximize your Handi budget.
