Am I too nice... I guess it's just love

I've been looking at getting a Franchi shotgun for the last 3 months, yesterday I went into the shop to look again. My wife accompanied me and while I was handling the franchi's I noticed her asking to see the Benelli Legacy shotguns, after a while she came over and showed me what she wanted for our 6 year aniversary next week. A Benelli Legacy 12 gauge with the pheasants engraved in it. I don't know you if you guys have ever seen one of these but they are GORGEOUS.

Well, the franchi is on the backburner for a while, how can I say no to a girl that loves to shoot as much as I do.

No, you aren't too nice. You have your priorities very much in order. Guns come and guns go. Any fool with the cash can buy a gun. Someone that shares life and living with you is something even the wealtiest person can seldom achieve. Since "Grandma Winchester" and I shared lots of bad times, it's only right that we get to share some good times too.

*My 20th anniversary with my bestest shooting buddy was back in April.Hope you have at least as many as us.

Ya guys got me snuffling, Wife and I have 25 years together, any woman worth keeping is worth pampering!

I'd give her the world on a silver platter if She wanted it so.

Congrats on your new Benelli.....

we are celebrating our 25 anniversary this year and we went to Hawaii and she even let me shoot sporting clays while there, I thought that was real love. keep her interested in the shooting stuff and you'll spend many a year as a happy married man. get her the legacy as it IS one purty gun!!!! enjoy and congrats
Other than That, Mrs Lincoln, How was the play?

Show her a Montefeltro 20ga. Carries like a .410 and with the right ammo shoots like a twelve. -- Kernel
