    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    How do talk wife into letting me buy a gun?

    So, I've been wanting to buy a pistol for a while now but my wife is adamantly opposed. Sooner or later, I'm getting one anyway and she can bitch all she wants but I'd really rather it not come to that.

    Any tips/resources that you kind hearted, generous, paranoid militia types can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, my wife is an attorney so I have to have sound reasons before I resort to flopping my dick on the table, preferrably.

    I'm thinking that maybe I just need to take her to some hand gun classes at the local range and have her shoot some .22 rounds. I really think her distrust of guns is motivated by a combination of ignorance and fear so education and exposure would seem to be the answer.

    Anecdotes please. Thanks.

    Pay someone to make less than consentual love to her.

    Edit: And for god's sake, make sure HE doesn't have one. :icon_conf

    I'm flattered, but no. I'm not inclined to get hookworms. I have work to do.

    My wife was totally opposed too...but I countered w/ telling her they would all be kept in a safe. That seemed to convince her.

    Not all are actually in the safe today since over the years I've managed to convince her about the need to quick access.

    Fortunately, I owned mine before we met.

    Yeah, here's how that argument goes:

    Me: "I'd like to buy a gun for home defense."

    Wife: "Guns scare me, I don't like them, WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN!!"

    Me: "We don't have any money grubbing, filthy, stink kids, and I'll buy a gunsafe."

    Wife: "If you're gonna put it in a safe then why buy one at all, seems pointless for home defense locked in a safe."

    Me: "For home defense." Etc, ad nauseum.

    Wife: "Guns scare me."

    Will work on that.

    "Honey, the guys on bullshido said that I should take you shooting so you'll quit being such an uptight bitch about the gun thing. Oh yeah, and Kein Harr won't rape you because he's afraid of a little fungus."

    Ha ha.

    Don't.

    I didn't say bitch but, boy was that a fun argument. Oh and don't crack any jokes about shooting her either.
