Default Who bought their wife a gun for Christmas?

After buying my wife jewelry for 40 years amongst other things from Little dinky rings to a Rolex watch there really isn't anything else that she needs. So the last two years I bought her a handgun. We like to target shoot and she has her concealed permit.Anyone else buy their wife a pistol or rifle?

I would sooner have myself committed for a full mental evaluation.

Yes, but not this year. I'm in VA where there is a HUGE fight about the 2A right now but I'm not sure where I'd put anything else if I bought it! (Even my Dad has expressed interest in a AR because of all this and while he was a hunter when younger he hasn't fired a gun in 10+ years.)

A few years ago, I bought my wife a G26. She never fired it.

Now with the divorce, I'm not actually sure who ended up with it. It is still unfired.

After the divorce is final, if I get it, I will sell it at auction starting at $1. I'd rather not have the memories.

I'm going to go ahead and promise you she doesn't, but credit card guy didn't help make my mind up. Really.

Hmmm, buy the wife a gun for Christmas and get a hefty life insurance policy in return. What could possibly go wrong??
