    I need some expert advice! My wife and I aren't speaking. How do you improve that situation. She's pissed at me for buying another gun and I'm pissed at her for being pissed at me! Need help!

    You didnt say how old you are or how long you have been married

    Flowers and or makeup sex?

    Or another tactic- invite her to the club so she can pull for you- so you can feel the love of closeness

    regards

    She's got you where she wants you. Do you pout when she buys shoes, clothes, arts & crafts stuff? Don't sweat it. She'll get over it.

    Never let them know you have a new gun. If they catch you with one just say, " this ole thing, it's been in the gunsafe for years."

    A son overheard his father telling someone he had to compromise with his wife. The son later asked his father what it meant to compromise with women.

    The father said, "son, when you compromise with a woman, you find common ground on something you disagree on. For example, your mother wanted a cat. I told her I didn't want a cat. So, we compromised, and we got a cat."

    I used to bring home guitars on a regular basis like kids bring home dogs. One day the wife saw me playing one of the guitars and ask. Where did that come from. I don't remember that one. I told her 2 of my Strats got married and had a kid. This is the kid. I got a funny look if you know what I mean(eyes rolling). I used to use the line. OOOOOOOOOOh I have had this since I was a kid. A woman with a calulator is a bad thing. LoL!!!! Todd

    I catch my wife in my loading room "counting" my guns every once in a while. She doesn't know one gun from another just how many I have. When I get a new one I take one of the old ones to the club and like magic the new one comes home.

    My brother has five of my guns stored at his place. LOL

    It may be a little late but I don't bitch about what she spends and she doesn't about what I spend. Ask her how she would feel if you got hit by a bus while she wasn't speaking to you about something as small as a gun. If she is still pissed I'd watch my back.

    Trapshooter,

    Guitars are a lot tougher than guns in this regard, aren't they?

    Gun designers were very smart, when they decided to *not* put cosmetic color variations like "cherry sunburst" finishes on trap guns.

    For example, these guys who paint their gun stocks...you can tell they are inexperienced and simply aren't thinking things through. I tell them, you're going to get tired of it sooner or later...and the question "Whatever happened to the blue one?" will dog you.

    Your first mistake was in buying the gun without her agreeing.
    Then, the second mistake was letting her see it.

    I bought a new duck gun several years ago. Had a buddy call my house when I was at work and tell the wife I'd won the gun in a drawing. Worked like a charm for about 10 years, when she found the receipt somehow...but by then it didn't matter because we weren't speaking permanently.
