I'm with you here on the gun thing (still got the same wife though, 35 good years). I've owned at least 30 C&Bs and stay in the teens with those in the house. My breakthrough didn't involve a spousal change but a truce regarding our respective passions: she wanted/needed a THIRD sewing machine for her quilting obsession which I just didn't "get". Something about a machine with a "walking foot" so I said, "Fine, get a 3rd sewing machine, but I don't want to hear any squawking when I bring home an occasional revolver." No problem, she says 'cause she wanted that sewing machine SO BAD. Since then, the dam broke and the pistols flooded in. Not a word about it. Happy wife, happy life.
With over 15 perCUSSIN' revolvers, I've been called the Imelda Marcos of cap & ball.
