After 33 years of marriage raising 3 kids and being chronically poor I've managed a meager gun collection.
I've dealt with the stare, the cold shoulder and even a cold bed and survived it all until about 10 years ago, she up and changed tactics.
I want a new gun no problem except now a $500. gun costs me 1k, $500 for me $500. for her.
I've learned to appreciate the one's I own and forget about new unless I can trade for it.
