Scare at the local gun show

The club I belong to put on a gun show here in Newcastle, they were short of volunteers so my wife consented in helping me with security at night.

After noticing the high prices and scarcity of ammo and reloading components during the first night I seen my wife talking to the guy running the show. She was inquiring about the possibility of getting a late table rental. Seems she knew of a good supply of reloading components and figured she could make a killing. She said my shop would be a gold mine. The guy running the show thought it would be a great idea and told her she could have a table up front.

Damn if those two didn't have me going for a while

Sale sale sale

If my wife had any ideal what that junk " as she calls it " was worth sitting in our basement was worth at today's prices, she would say " Sale Sale Sale ". She knows it keeps me happy so I'm safe for now. I will use what I have to make bullits and shoot em up until their gone. I never was one to just look at things, what god is all that stuff if I don't use it.

My wife has no idea about the quantities of components I have on hand, or their value.
It's probably better if I keep it that way.

I like the old saying . My biggest fear in life is . After I die my wife selling all my gear for what I told her I paid for it .
Tolerate- allow the existence, occurrence, or practice of something that one does not necessarily like or agree with , without interference.
If you have some time IMO this is worth a listen/watch but it takes a few minutes to really get going . or a picture of Mohamed

Too Funny. I wonder how many others will pull this prank on their spouse now.
