i want only gun related gifts for fathers day.but my wife is not buying into it. suggestions?
tell her that the criminals have guns and they have no problem getting them. you could also place pictures on the fridge, i did this with a set of mud grip tires and it worked, not sure how it will work with a gun. lol.
last time i did that i ended up buying her a new fridge.lol
try getting her a gun as a gift. (the ol bowling ball trick)
problem solved. i convinced her to get me a gift card at cabella's...you know the mens clothing store..wink wink
Oh how sneaky you are my friend...but Im going to remember that.
desperate times call for desperate measures.lol
Maybe a basic NRA safety class to start? Once she knows how to handle a weapon safely, she will not be so frightened of them. Call your local gun range and find her a female instructor. If not that, get her Paxton Quigley's book on the importance of defending yourself and knowing how to use a firearm. Once she sees that other women have accepted and mastered firearms, she won't be so against it.
P.S. Ebear, we women know what cabella's is. Nice try.
not all women know.....lol she thinks it's like sportmart.but on a serious note.she's cool with me getting a gun. as long as im responsible about it.there was a gunrelated accident in her family years ago and she has concerns. but we worked it out. it took 10 years but it all worked out.lots of foot massages.lol
make sure you post some pics so we can see it
what are you thinking about getting?
The stoeger couger 9 mm. i resaerched it through different sources then i went with a friend to the range and rented one and really liked it.im probably gonna put the down payment down this week.i got allot of info off of this sight.
Sounds like you have already worked this one out... but just wanted to throw my 2-cents in (5 cents, adjusted for inflation?)
There are some things my DH is into that are not exactly on my list of favorites, but he likes them, so that is that. It bugs me so much when women act like jailers and don't "let" the men in their lives do the things that they want to do. But if a guy dared tell a female that she could not have a so-and-so because HE didn't like it... can you imagine the feminist furor that would bring?
You did explain WHY she has issues with it, but still... surely she sees the news every night and reads about the armed kooks in the world that rob and rape and kill? How many gun-related accidents do you hear about on a daily basis compared with gun-related life-saving incidents? She just needs a good, logical look at actual statistics. If she can look at it that way, it should convince her with no problem. Spreadsheets are beautiful things...
And this coming from the Secretary of Defense. I love this "command"
first things first...will you marry me? lol..my wife had a cousin whom she was close to, kill himself. with a gun about 10 years ago. so she was not real cool to the idea of me getting a firearm.so off and on in these 10 years i've eased it back in and she finally relented.ive offered to take her to the range but she would'nt wear the target shirt i bought her...lol just kidding.no she saw that i was going about this hobby in a responsible way, and i too did my research, like you and now i can tell her where i hid her palm pilot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL, ebear! Why not? Apparently polygamy is legal out in parts of West Texas...
I can understand your wife's hesitation if she lost someone she was close to. I'm glad she has warmed up to the idea though. So many more people are killed by cars every day, but you don't see anybody swear off driving ever again. (I love that bumper sticker that says: "Guns Kill People Like A Spoon Made Rosie O'Donnell Fat")
Let us know how your Father's Day goes!
Rick Perry Gov of Texas told the Jeffers that they were not welcomed in Texas.
the palm pilot! why didn't i think of that!! but seriouly, maybe some gun safty classes would help ease her mind, i agree that gun safty is a serious issue.
Polygamy works for me lol.But on a serious note.....I think i will take a safety class, I think everyone should.My wife does'nt want any part of it But i want to someday get my daughters involved if they want to...But back to you Texas, How would you look in one of those Amish dresses?.lol
I think I would die in one of those dresses! Who wants to wear long-sleeved, ankle-length clothes in 105-degree weather? Might as well wear a Taliban-style burka.
On the other hand, it would definitely help with a concealed carry, LOL!
yes it would.lol
most condiser a dozen guns enough to own
just got my foid card!!!!!!! now im a kid in a toy store.gonna stick with a 9mm, but i keep changing my mind.
take her fav magazine and take the front off and put it on the gun mag that you like and tell her it was the mag companys christmas gift catalog.............lol
yaeh, she'll fall for that..............not!

im gonna wait for football season to buy my next gun. I usually do pretty good money wise.That ways the old lady won't bitch...lol
The Colt Single Action Army handgun (also known as the Colt Peacemaker, Single Action Army or SAA. Colt .45 and sometimes as The Equalizer) is a single action revolver with a revolving cylinder holding six rounds. It was designed for the US government service revolver trials of 1873 by Colt's Manufacturing Company and adopted as the standard military service revolver.
The .45 Colt cartridge was of center fire design containing charges of up to 40 grains (2.6 g) of fine grained black powder and a 255-grain (16.5 g) blunt round nosed bullet. Relative to period cartridges and most later handgun rounds, it was quite powerful in its full loading.
The Colt Single Action Army handgun replaced the Colt 1860 Army Percussion revolver and remained the primary US Military sidearm until 1892 when it was replaced by an enclosed frame Colt double action revolver. By 1875, 15,000 units chambered for the .45 Colt cartridge had entered service along with an additional 1863 chambered for the .44 Henry rimfire cartridge (Wilson 1985.)
By the mid 1870s, the Army had purchased a significant number of Smith and Wesson revolvers chambering a shorter .45 round. Logistical problems arose because the ammunition was not interchangeable. The Colt revolvers would accept the shorter round but not vice versa. For a time, the Government stopped orders for the longer Colt cartridge and used the Smith and Wesson round exclusively.
Are you going to get one?
well i went on gunbroker and saw a few used ones I liked. we'll see.im gonna rent around and see what I like and can afford.
See if you can rent a Ruger Single Six Revolver.
i will....gonna try a 357 magnum too
Tell me what u think on all u shoot. what gun range are u going to.
there are several in the chicago suburbs. Gatt guns, midwest guns to name a few
Say Snake have you ever shot a peacemaker? If so what inch? I want one but they are big Money! I want a Colt. I would love to join a SAA shooting Comp.
picture. the SAA in it is exactly like the one i own. By the way Peacemaker and SAA are the same gun. Yes i shot one the one i own to be exact. mine shoots .45 long colts. mine was used in the civil war by a man named John Colley. Also mine is the standard version. It packs a punch. I shot mine in a competition against a .45 M1911A1 i beat it in penitration but it beat me in number of shots on the target.
Yeah the ones I saw at the gun show are 2,500. Colts are expensive.
i might pick up a ruger revolver just to fart around with. mabey a .45 cal.
try a ruger vaquero
i like the meatier guns like the smith and wesson and the colts
Smith & Wesson 500 Magnum
